Clementine Ford suggests that influencers are faking adverse reactions

Feminist author Clementine Ford suggests that some influencers could be FAKING adverse reactions to the Covid-19 vaccines to gain more fame and followers


Clementine Ford has lashed out at anti-vax influencers in a scathing post shared to Instagram.

The feminist author suggested that some social media stars may be faking adverse reactions to the Covid-19 vaccine in order to attract new audiences. 

Taking on the role of an influencers, she says satirically:  ‘I’m an influencer, and I want to talk to you about something really important. My brand.

‘Like 72 percent of the population, I received my vaccination, mostly because I want to go to events again. 

‘And go to the movies, and shopping, and stand in front of red walls and take photographs that I could post on Instagram to make you jealous of my life.’

She went on: ‘But I also know that a lot of people really don’t like the vaccine, and I don’t want to alienate any of them. I’m going to post a heavily stylist photograph of me having an adverse reaction.

'I'll be sure to say I never wanted it in the first place, that way I can still get to do all the things I want to do with my vaccine passport. But, I'll have thousands of new followers, who see me as a victim of the government conspiracy' she added

Making a comically strained expression and faking a tearful face, Clementine then added, ‘Know your brand’.

It follows similar comments made by reality star and pro-vax advocate Abbie Chatfield. 

‘I understand why [other influencers] don’t do it because anti-vaxxers are aggressive, and people can’t be bothered paying the price or losing followers,’ she said. 

Abbie said she’s only benefited from promoting the Covid vaccine, explaining: ‘I’ve added 50,000 followers in the latest lockdown, and before that, it was plateauing.’
