Antivaxxer learns his lesson the hard way
It took a life-or-death situation before Stubborn Courtier (SC) realized he isn’t as sturdy nor as tough as the larger-than-life characters he portrays onscreen. But SC, who has vehemently refused to get vaccinated against the COVID-causing virus, truly learned his lessons the hard way after his recent get-together with his pals.In his case, however, the highly contagious virus has demonstrated just how much of a great equalizer it is—it doesn’t care if you’re famous or not! Just days after the merrymaking, SC and his buddies began manifesting the virus’ dreaded symptoms—and shortly thereafter, SC had to be rushed to the ICU to deal with his worsening, life-threatening condition.
Last time we checked, SC wasn’t out of the woods yet. But when SC finally sees the “light at the end of the tunnel,” would he agree to finally get jabbed? Has the ordeal changed his mind about the importance of getting “protection”? Your guess is as good as mine.
