Actor and left-wing activist Tim Robbins tweeted his support Thursday for fellow actor Woody Harrelson’s opposition to vaccine mandates and other on-set COVID protocols in Hollywood, saying it is “time to end this charade.”
“Woody is right. Time to end this charade,” Robbins tweeted in response to a recent New York Times interview in which Harrelson called for an end to “forced testing, forced masking, and forced vaccination.”
Harrelson had said, “I don’t think that anybody should have the right to demand that you’re forced to do the testing, forced to wear the mask and forced to get vaccinated three years on. I’m just like, let’s be done with this nonsense. It’s not fair to the crews. I don’t have to wear the mask. Why should they? Why should they have to be vaccinated? How’s that not up to the individual? I shouldn’t be talking about this [expletive].”
Harrelson added that it’s been three years since the start of the pandemic and it’s time to “stop” with all the mandates. “As an anarchist, I don’t do well with mandates,” he said.
