GENE SIMMONS Blasts Anti-Vaxxers And Anti-Maskers: 'If You're A Denier, Stay In The Shadows'

Gene Simmons is promoting public confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine's safety once it has obtained emergency-use authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

"The last three presidents of these United States — [Barack] Obama, [George W.] Bush and [Bill] Clinton — are all gonna be taking the vaccine on the same day, just to prove to people, 'No, no. This is legitimate,'" the KISS bassist/vocalist told the "Jeremy White Podcast" in a new interview (see video below). "Because there are deniers, there's the Flat Earth Society, and 'Aliens ate my dog's homework' — and everything you can imagine. People who don't believe in masks, 'They're a hoax'…"

Gene went on to blast people who are defiantly skeptical of mask wearing, saying that their refusal to follow the rules is putting all of our health at risk.

"Believe what you want, but don't hang out around me," Simmons said. "Okay? If you're a denier, stay in the shadows. I don't wanna be around you. 'Cause I don't wanna catch what you've got. It's not about you. It's not whether you believe it or not."

He added: "When you sneeze, you put your hand over your mouth. If your dog poops on the ground, you'll pick it up. But you won't pick up a mask?"

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is meeting this week to decide whether to authorize a COVID-19 vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech. The vaccine is already being rolled out across Britain, where a 90-year-old grandmother of four became the first person in the West to receive a COVID-19 vaccine outside clinical trials.

There are more than 2,200 deaths from COVID-19 in the U.S. a day on average, and cases per day have eclipsed 200,000 on average for the first time on record.
