Pete Evans appears to contradict himself in bizarre disclaimer

Coronavirus denier Pete Evans appears to contradict himself by stating he ‘does not endorse’ his OWN views in a bizarre disclaimer

Coronavirus denier Pete Evans has seemingly contradicted himself by providing a ‘COVID Safe’ disclaimer on the website of his ‘healing clinic’ in Byron Bay.

The disclaimer states that the clinic is committed to high standards of hygiene during the COVID-19 pandemic – which Evans supposedly believes is fake.

The 47-year-old’s Facebook account and his Evolve with Pete Evans podcast also feature similar disclaimers, which state that Evans is not a health professional and that people should consult qualified medical experts instead.

Interestingly, the disclaimer on his podcast states that Evans ‘does not endorse’ the ‘opinions and conclusions’ of the guests he openly praises and agrees with. 

Evans’ harmful views have ranged from blaming coronavirus on 5G cell towers to actively encouraging his followers to not wear masks in Melbourne, which is currently in stage-four lockdown.

Evans’ false and unscientific views about the coronavirus pandemic cost him his $800,000-a-year job at Channel Seven earlier this year. 

He and his wife, New Zealand glamour model Nicola Robinson, are now preparing to open their Evolve Health Labs clinic in Australia’s hippie capital.

Despite believing the pandemic is a hoax, the former TV star is still complying with the New South Wales government by registering his business as COVID-safe. 

According to the company’s Instagram account, the clinic will offer ‘transformational practices’ such as ‘cold and conscious breath-work’ and ‘cryotherapy’.

A similar message at the end of his podcasts states: ‘Nothing in this podcast should be used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any medical condition. 

‘Neither Pete Evans nor any sponsor endorse any views, opinions and conclusions expressed or shared in this podcast.’

In recent months, he has interviewed a string of conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists, whom he offers uncritical and unwavering support. 

In June, Evans was invited on Channel Nine’s 60 Minutes to share his bizarre conspiracy theories about COVID-19 and the 5G network.

The program faced criticism for choosing to interview Evans, thereby giving airtime to his dangerous anti-vaccination and coronavirus conspiracy theories.
