LaKeith Stanfield On People Sharing Their Vaccination Status: It’s YOUR Business + Confirms He’s Vaccinated
LaKeith Stanfield is facing some criticism over his recent comments about people sharing their vaccination status. In a new post, the Oscar-nominated actor shared his thoughts on ‘medical decisions.’ He wrote on social media,
“Your medical decisions are YOUR BUSINESS. Everybody isn’t entitled to those decisions just because we live in a scary time.”
Some social media users reacted to his opinion in the now-deleted post. Replying to a social media user LaKeith Stanfield confirmed he was vaccinated.
“I know and i want to provide some balance on this issue because i think that ppl are sometimes being violent to ppl on the other side and I’m vaccinated. I’m not telling ppl what to do but respect people and do your part respectfully.”
This is not the first time Stanfield has received backlash for his comments. Back in May, the Atlanta star made headlines for joining an anti-Semitic Clubhouse conversation. He later apologized on his Instagram saying the discussion ‘took a very negative turn’ and after becoming a moderator, he should have ended the conversation or left. He added,
“I condemn hate speech and discriminatory views of every kind. I unconditionally apologize for what went on in that chat room, and for allowing my presence there to give a platform to hate speech. I am not an anti-Semite nor do I condone any of the beliefs discussed in that chat room.”
