Actor Woody Harrelson Faces Backlash After Joking on SNL About Big Pharma Cartel Pushing Drugs

Actor Woody Harrelson has hosted Saturday Night Live five times, but may never be asked to host again after dropping some inconvenient truth bombs about Big Pharma during his opening monologue Saturday.

The Academy Award nominee, 61,  shared his anti-vax views in a joke about a fictitious movie script he purportedly read before the COVID-19 pandemic.

“So, the movie goes like this,” said Harrelson. “The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes, and people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over.”

The joke fell flat with the liberal SNL audience who reacted only with nervous laughter.

“I threw that script away!” Harrelson added. “I mean who would believe that crazy idea about being forced to do drugs?! I do that voluntarily all day long!” he exclaimed, garnering a few more laughs.

The actor’s comments have predictably spurred a backlash from pro-vaxxers on social media. 

“With Woody Harrelson’s monologue on SNL last night, the anti-vax stupidity in America just peaked,” wrote one person. “It’s disappointing that Lorne Michaels would allow this conspiratorial nonsense on his show. It’s probably time for Lorne to retire.”

Another person tweeted: “Does #SNL think [it’s] just harmless noise? Normalizing #antivaxx conspiracies does real harm!”

“Anti-Vaxxers won’t listen to highly educated people who’ve spent their lives devoted to science and medicine—but they will listen to a guy who they saw in that movie they watched a few years ago,” one other critic posted.

“Whenever anyone spews anti-vax stupidity, I always think of the countless videos of traumatized/crying doctors, nurses and hospital workers who were climbing over bodies in Covid’s early days,” another Twitter user wrote. “So yeah, f— Woody Harrelson.”

The Pfizer-funded corporate media was also quick to denounce Harrelson’s comments, as highlighted in the video below.

Harrelson’s distrust of the public health system is nothing new. In May of 2022, the outspoken actor told Vanity Fair that he found the idea of mask-wearing to protect against COVID to be “absurd.”

And in an interview on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the actor, who describes himself as an anarchist, declared: “The last people I would trust with my health is Big Pharma and Big Government because neither one of those strike me as caring entities.”

Harrelson also pointed out that the regime’s failure to promote vitamin D for health immune systems during the pandemic, and its propaganda against hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin appeared to be geared toward pushing only the COVID “vaccines.” 

“Ultimately, because of that, billions of dollars was made,” he concluded.
