He is the voice of God, but that still doesn’t mean that people trust him.
Morgan Freeman recorded a public service announcement urging people to “trust” him and get their COVID-19 vaccinations, but Twitter was unable to decide Tuesday whether the actor should be considered infallible when it comes to recommending vaccines.
“I am Morgan Freeman. I am not a doctor. But I trust science. And I’ve been told that, for some reason, people trust me, “says the 83-year-old actor, who has played God in movies like” Bruce Almighty, “in the clip.
“So here I am to say that I trust science and I got vaccinated. If you trust me, you will get the vaccine.
“In math, it’s called distributive property,” Morgan says in the ad for Creative Coalition, an actor-driven nonprofit.
“In people, it’s called caring for each other. Get the vaccine. Help us make our world a safe place for us to enjoy again. Please.”
The announcement of the gray-haired star, the latest actor to make such a public service announcement pushing immunizations, sparked a debate on Twitter about whether Hollywood dudes should promote the controversial shots.
“Hey, let’s take medical advice from actors who lie for a living. What could go wrong?” a tweeted poster.
Another person wrote: “I don’t know Morgan Freeman personally, so how could I trust him? As for the politicians, I don’t trust any of them ”.
Someone more tweetedMorgan Freeman is a great actor. Unfortunately, there isn’t an actor in the world who can give ten-year security data on their experimental technology, so I don’t care who you pay to beg me to get one. I am not.”
But the ad also had a large following.
“I trust science … and Morgan Freeman gets the vaccine”, a person tweeted.
Other tweeter wrote, “Great video. I trust Morgan Freeman. I get my second dose next week!”
