Kate Langbroek goes wildly off-script on The Project to label her fellow Aussies ‘little b****s’ over a single decision 95 per cent of us made – leaving her progressive co-hosts visibly shocked

Kate Langbroek has gone wildly off script on The Project, claiming Australians ‘lined up like little b*****s’ to get a Covid jab in an extraordinary rant that stunned her cohosts.

Langbroek made the comments as she praised Novak Djokovic for standing by his principles over his anti-vaccination stance during Tuesday’s episode of the Channel 10 show.

The tennis superstar was forced to leave Australia just days before he was scheduled to play in the Australian Open in January 2022 after he entered the country unvaccinated during strict pandemic border restrictions.

‘His sense of himself is so strong that when all the world was lining up like little b*****s to get jabbed with an unknown vaccine, he went, “I’m not going to,”‘ Langbroek said.

‘The world hated him, but he was staunch.’

It’s not the first time Langbroek has spoken on this issue. In September 2021, she slammed employers for telling staff to get vaccinated or risk losing their jobs.

‘I’m not for mandatory vaccines for work,’ she said in the tense stand-off.

‘I’m not an anti-vaxxer, but I’m just very uncomfortable prescribing to people mandatorily what they have to put in their bodies in order to work.’

A month later, Langbroek told Stellar magazine her strict upbringing as a Jehovah’s Witness had made her critical of mandatory vaccines.

‘I’m confused that everyone is so militant and happy about it,’ she said.

‘I don’t want to see people disfellowshipped [a religious practice of exclusion] from their lives. I witnessed it growing up, and it’s a cruel and effective means of control.’

Langbroek argued that excommunicating people from society who chose not to get jabbed was comparable to the cruel tactics used to control religious dissenters.

‘I find it repugnant that they will be disfellowed from their lives because they have hesitation or doubts about vaccination,’ she said.

‘If you have the right to go into your workplace and feel protected, doesn’t someone else also not have the right to decide what they put in their body?’

In December 2023, Djokovic said he was still scarred from his deportation ahead of his return to Australia for the following month’s Australian Open.

‘I was basically declared as a villain of the world,’ he told CBS.

Djokovic said that while he often experienced hostile crowds during his career as a tennis player, nothing had prepared him for the deportation saga.

He was asked if he ‘misread’ the mood of the Australian public who ‘felt very strongly about vaccination’ and did not like the perceived Serbian star’s ‘exceptionalism’.

‘It was not up to me to read [up on] anybody,’ Djokovic replied.

‘I got the permission to come into the country and, and so of course, it escalated to the highest of the highest levels globally.’

Djokovic is a vocal vaccine sceptic and is not vaccinated against Covid.
