Conor McGregor, the most popular and highest paid Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) mixed martial arts fighter, joined the growing list of celebrities opposing forced vaccinations.
McGregor, who earned $181 million last year, branded forced vaccinations a ”war crime.”
“You think forcing people to inject something into their body is not a crime? People must have the right to choose,” McGregor said. According to the fighter, people must have the right to choose what to put into their bodies.
“An attempt to mandate vaccine is coming, per the head of the EU [European Union]. I cannot agree to this,” said McGregor, an Irishman. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen earlier said that a discussion was needed around the idea of mandatory vaccines in the bloc.
McGregor, who banked an estimated $22 million in his losing fight against Dustin Poirier in January, said it was time to talk about Ireland leaving the EU. It prompted Irish politician Neale Richmond to sarcastically reply: ”You’ll do nuttin,” an allusion to the star’s pre-fight catchphrase.
Richmond did not escape McGegor’s condemnation. He branded Richmond as subservient to the EU, saying “Stockholm syndrome comes to mind” when considering the economically devastating bailout foisted on then-Irish Finance Minister Brian Lenihan in 2010 by EU chiefs.
Lenihan, according to McGregor, was threatened and folded. ”Economic partnership should not mean political surrender. Bailed out and locked in we were, and it was handily done,” said McGregor.
Among the celebrities who were very vocal against forced vaccinations are singer Nicki Minaj, super model Doutzen Kroes, Black Panther actress Letitia Wright, comedian Rob Schneider, rapper Offset, Anwar Hadid, LaKeith Stanfield and professional actor and musician Chet Hanks.

Actor Matthew McConaughey said that while both he and his wife are vaccinated, he’s “not vaccinating” his children. McConaughey said he is against the vaccine mandates for children. “I still want to find more information,” he said.
