“If you don’t want to vaccinate, go to a small island and sequester yourself,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. ”[Otherwise] you’re saying ‘Fuck you’ to all you other human beings.”
Esposito, who portrayed the villainous Moff Gideon in the Disney series and drug lord Gus Fring on “Breaking Bad,” said he can’t understand why people wouldn’t want to be vaccinated for protection against COVID-19.
“For me, I’ve lost dear friends, so I know it’s real,” he said. “Not only in Europe but in America, friends who were completely healthy and uncompromised. The vaccine is the answer.”
And he wasn’t kidding about the sequestering thing, either.
“I’m not downing anyone who doesn’t want to vaccinate,” he said, then repeated his solution: “Don’t work. Go ride it out somewhere where you’re not going to compromise anyone else if you get it.”
Esposito starred alongside Gina Carano, who portrayed Cara Dune in the series but was given the boot by Lucasfilm over “abhorrent” social media posts. She has since shared conspiracy theories and other misinformation about the coronavirus and the vaccine.
