Shaquille O’Neal Comes Out: I’m Against “Forced” Mandates


Shaquille O’Neal has officially come out:

He is against “forced” COVID-19 mandates!

It’s not secret that most celebrities are leftists.

Most of them support draconian shut downs while they hypocritically go partying without masks.

Some of them, such as AOC, have even traveled to Florida to party in a free state.

Well, Shaq is not having part of any of that.

He is being authentic and true to his word.

And he is leading the celebrity and athlete charge against these draconian mandates.

More details below:

How awesome is this?!

This is someone with a HUGE platform and voice who is advocating for FREEDOM.

Freedom to choose what YOU do with YOUR body!

Fox News has more details:

Shaquille O’Neal opened up about his thoughts on mandated COVID-19 vaccination policies, disagreeing with the notion that people should be forced to get the jab.

O’Neal, the Basketball Hall of Famer who won NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat during his career, encouraged his listeners on “The Big Podcast with Shaq” to “be safe and “take care of your family.” But he disagreed with forcing those people who don’t want it to get it.

“But it’s just, people don’t want to take it, and you shouldn’t be forced to take something you don’t want,” he said.

O’Neal and his co-hosts Nischelle Turner and Anthony “Spice” Adams spoke about the New York nurses who were accused of making more than $1 million over fake vaccine cards. O’Neal said the two shouldn’t be sent to jail and gave Turner a hypothetical scenario regarding her work on “Entertainment Tonight.”

O’Neal and Turner debated whether it was fair for a private company to dismiss someone who doesn’t receive the COVD-19 vaccine. The former center suggested a worker shouldn’t have to make the decision to get vaccinated if it was “going against (their) morals.”

Will this lead to more celebrities speaking out?

I don’t know about you, but to me, it has felt as though a tide is turning in the public debate over mandates.

More and more people are now speaking out for freedom, rather than against it.

And it appears Shaquille O’Neal is on the right side of history!

This is inspiring news.

Hopefully Shaq’s words will inspire others to stand up and live their truth!

The Blaze confirms the living legend’s comments:

During an episode of “The Big Podcast with Shaq,” former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal indicated that he does not believe people should “be forced” to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

O’Neal took issue with scenarios in which someone faces the threat of losing their job if they decline to get vaccinated.

While the basketball legend said that he urges people “to be safe” as well as to “take care” of their families, he added that he does not think people should “be forced” into taking that which they do not even want.

This raises the question:

Will others follow in Shaq’s footsteps?

Only time will tell.

But until then, we congratulate Shaq for having the courage to speak out!

Good for you!
