American radio personality, Howard Stern, is adding Meat Loaf to his list of anti-vaxxers he’s not pleased with. Meat Loaf died this past Thursday at the age of 74.
TMZ reported that Meat Loaf was “seriously ill” with COVID-19 just days before his death. The singer was due to attend a business dinner earlier this week for a show he was working on based on his classic hit “I’d Do Anything For Love” but canceled after becoming sick.
“Poor Meat Loaf got sucked into some weird f*cking cult,” Stern said on the latest edition of his SiriusXM radio show. “And somehow really believed that — he made a statement, ‘I’d rather die a free man than take that vaccine.’ And now he’s dead!”
Stern then called on his family to come out in support of vaccines following the singer’s death. “I wish the family would come forward and say, ‘Ya know, when Meat Loaf was laying there in the hospital and he couldn’t breathe, he said, ‘I made a mistake. I should have taken the vaccine.’ Like all these anti-vaxxers, they all say, ‘I made a mistake.’”
