Lewis Hamilton has committed a blunder by posting an anti vax message on his social media, in response to a King Bach-Bill Gates interview.
Bill Gates, in the CBSN video talks about the vaccine, ensuring there are no piracy concerns with it. He also expressed hope that all this negative hype around him will go down in due time. This is what he had to say, in conversation with King Bach.
“No, there’s no connection between any of these vaccines and any tracking type thing at all. I don’t know where that came from.”
He was then asked as to why he has been embroiled in this ‘fake news’. As per Zignal Labs, fake news about Bill Gates is the highest during the pandemic period. The number on Facebook is estimated to be over 16,000.
“I don’t know. Dr Fauci and I are the two most mentioned, and some of these are deeply ironic. Like, our foundation is about reducing death and bringing equity to health. And yet the idea that we get accused of creating chips or the virus, I think we just need to get the truth out there. We need to explain our values so that people understand why we’re involved in this work and why we’re willing to put billions towards accelerating the progress. It’s a little unclear to me, but I hope it will die down as people get the facts.”
Lewis Hamilton anti vax post
Lewis has already had anti-racism verbal spats with Bernie Ecclestone and Mario Andretti. But he is in no mood to stop, and this time his target is the Microsoft founder.
This after the reigning F1 champion posted an anti-vaccine comment on Instagram. It was in response to a Bill Gates interview, with the caption, ‘I remember when I told my first lie’. He has drawn worldwide flak for it, with even his fans asking him to think before he speaks.
The fact that Lewis Hamilton is actively supporting anti-vax conspiracy theories proves the point that I’ve been making for years. He isn’t humble and he is isn’t a good guy. He is a fraud.

This is expected to be a burning topic at this weekend’s British Grand Prix. It would be interesting to see how many drivers support him with taking a knee, after such negative commentary on social media.
