Bogut was pro vaccination during the 2016 Olympics (Zika)
With Kyrie's current strong resistance to vaccination, I vaguely remembered when Zika virus was circulating in Brazil during the '16 Olympics. I was largely searching for a Kyrie quote to see if his stance changed in the years, only to discover this hidden (shock) gem from Mr. Bogut himself:
"Bogut can't stand getting shots, so him already getting several as precautions for visiting Brazil shows how much he wants to represent Australia.
"Just being bitten by a mosquito and then come down with something is a pretty scary prospect," Bogut said. “I’ve had my yellow fever shot already, which is a battle in itself. And then you’ve got malaria and you’ve got Zika. So being able to get that from an insect is pretty scary stuff.”
He then half-seriously detailed a precaution option.
“Might have to buy a hazmat outfit to arrive,” he said."
So many questions right now. Hypocrite? Recent conspiracy theorist? Change in political views (Trump elected late '16)? Can someone with large Twitter clout call him out on this?
Part of me suspects he's also against Patty Mills donning the Aboriginal and TSI Flags, especially as we saw post Rose-Gold game, and through the Olympics campaign. He's so not a role-model whatsoever. It's such a shame the views he's taken on.
fyi: I couldn't reply in the Bogut thread below, due to a new account.
