Comedian Jim Breuer Cancels Shows at Venues ‘Due to Segregation’ of Forced Vaccinations

One comedian is standing up to vaccine mandates, and one of the few celebrities brave enough to put his money where his mouth is, and he should be commended. Saturday Night Live alum Jim Breuer took to Facebook live to release a statement that he would not perform at venues demanding patrons receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

In a 22 minute Facebook live, Breuer said “two quick updates on shows that you may think you may be getting tickets to or you already have tickets to: The Wellmont Theater in New Jersey – not doing it.”

“Also the Royal Oak Theater in Michigan, due to the segregation of them forcing people to show up with vaccinations…I am also not doing those shows” added Breuer.

Aware of the monetary repercussions, Breuer stood by his morals. “I know I’m going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I’m not going to be enslaved to the system or money.”

Breuer continued that he believed getting vaccinated was “a choice” and was not concerned with any opinions of his fans or the public. “If you have anything else to say, I honestly don’t care.”

“Due to, I have to stick to my morals, I have to stick to what I know is right” he added. The comedian also noted his disappointment that patrons were being “forced” and “bribed” before they could attend shows.

While he stated he doesn’t blame venues for enforcing vaccine mandates in some cases, but rather governors and ticketing vendors. He said the venues were being held “hostage.” NBC News reported neither the Wellmont Theater nor the Royal Oak Theater responded to requests for comment Monday.

Breuer, 54, was part of the Saturday Night Live cast from 1995 to 1998 and was known for recurring characters including Goat Boy and celebrity impersonation of Joe Pesci. He was also in the 1998 film “Half Baked” alongside Dave Chappelle.

    Drug companies have to find a way to pay for all the judgements against them but this isn’t the way, it will open the door for more down the road when like the cigarette companies it comes out they knew things but kept it quite to sell their product. I could be wrong but what if I’m not? That is why people should be allowed to choose for themselves. If government forces this they are liable for all harm done, but isn’t that what lobbyist for drug companies would want?

Biden Admin Announces First COVID Shots For Kids Under 5 Likely By June 21

On Thursday, the Biden administration announced that children under 5 will be able to get their first COVID-19 vaccination doses as soon as June 21, if regulators authorize the shots for this age group as expected.

According to the Associated Press, White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha “said the Food and Drug Administration’s outside panel of advisers will meet on June 14-15 to evaluate the Pfizer and Moderna shots for younger kids. Shipments to doctors’ offices and pediatric care facilities would begin soon after FDA authorization, with the first shots possible the following week.”

Jha added that states can begin placing orders for the pediatric vaccines on Friday and the administration will initially have 10 million doses available.

“Our expectation is that within weeks every parent who wants their child to get vaccinated will be able to get an appointment,” Jha said. “At the end of the day we all want to move fast, but we’ve got to get it right.”

The news comes the week after Pfizer announced that three doses of their vaccine offers strong protection against COVID-19 in children under 5.  However, according to former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a third dose is unnecessary because the vaccines do not prevent infection.

“I think the decision matrix has changed around the vaccine for [ages] 6 months to 4 years old and so far as we know that the vaccine isn’t as protective at preventing infection,” Gottlieb said. “Previously, we had data showing that the childhood vaccine for 6 months to 4 years wasn’t as protective against infection as the adult vaccine.”

“That’s the reason why they pushed it out and asked for that third dose. But now, if the goal of the vaccine is to get baseline immunity in the kids to prevent really bad outcomes, and you’re really not using the vaccine as a tool to prevent infection in the first place, two doses could do that,” he added.

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”
