Jim Breuer is taking shots at the COVID jab as he announces cancellations of shows at venues which require proof of vaccination.
The policy is government-sanctioned “segregation,” according to the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member best-known as “Goat Boy.”
The Long Island native took to Facebook Live to drop the bombshell over the weekend.
“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,” Breuer, 54, said in the 22-minute broadcast that’s now trending hard on Twitter.
“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,” he added.
“I know I’m going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I’m not going to be enslaved to the system or money.”
The funny guy emphasized that vaccination is “a choice,” and has decided to cancel bookings at venues that don’t align with his values.
“If you have anything else to say, I honestly don’t care,” Breuer said. “Due to, I have to stick to my morals, I have to stick to what I know is right.”
He alleged that guests are being “forced” and “bribed” into vaccination by venues, which he believes are being held “hostage” by pro-vax lawmakers and corporate ticketing vendors.
Twitter was quick to sound off on Breuer’s hot take:
Breuer’s memo is just the latest in a succession of performers to amend their touring schedules in regards to their pandemic politics, including rocker Eric Clapton, 76, who has cancelled shows citing the same reason. (Nicki Minaj had her own reasons for not attending Monday night’s Met Gala.”)
Meanwhile, comedian Patton Oswalt made a similar announcement last week in reverse — that he would cancel shows, particularly in Florida and Utah, where vaccines were not required to attend. He’s joined by artists such as Bruce Springsteen and The Foo Fighters who have made similar calls.
Breuer starred on “SNL” between 1995 and 1998, best known for his character Goat Boy and celebrity impersonations such as Joe Pesci. He later co-starred alongside Dave Chappelle for the stoner flick “Half Baked” in 1998,” the same year he also hosted his short-lived MTA talk show “The Jim Breuer Show.”
