Anti-vaxxers and vaccine supporters are two groups that have emerged as a result of the pandemic. The people who are against the Covid 19 vaccinations are anti-vaxxers. The supporters of vaccinations are known as vaccitivists.

There have been several arguments between groups on social media since the pandemic. The use of vaccinations is advocated by a number of well-known figures. The CEO of Meta platforms, Mark Zuckerburg, is one of the figures that urged people to get the vaccination.

Zuckerberg assisted the government in raising public awareness of the vaccination. However, a video of the Facebook creator has just started to circulate online. Zuckerberg may be seen on the video adopting a different stance on the vaccine.

What did ex-UFC star Jake Shields say about Mark Zuckerberg?

As per a few reports, the video was recorded in 2020. In the clip, Zuckerberg states that they currently are unaware of the long-term side effects of modifying people’s DNA and RNA. However, the Facebook founder didn’t clearly mention the word ‘vaccines.’ Many are also commenting that is an AI-generated video and is not real.

The video was recently uploaded by a Twitter user and one of his captions stated that Mark Zuckerberg is warning his staff against the vaccine, but on the flip side, the Meta CEO advised the masses to vaccinate.

While reacting to the video former UFC fighter Jake Shields took a jibe at Zuckerberg. “He’s too cowardly to say how he feels publicly though,” Shields commented on the post.
