Fox News host Tucker Carlson was trolled on social media after he used Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin’s sudden collapse on the field on Monday night during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, to peddle misinformation about the Covid vaccine. 

“What don’t we know? Well, what we don’t know could fill volumes, starting with why Damar Hamlin had a heart attack on a football field. We do not know the answer a there is no way to know the answer. We’re not going to lie to you and pretend we do know the answer. But that has not stopped many others from lying to you,” Carlson said. 

He added: “Hamlin was still lying on the field, receiving CPR when self-described medical experts in the media, people with no demonstrated medical ethics at all, effectively witch doctors, decided to use his tragic life-threatening injuries as an opportunity to spread still more propaganda about the COVID shots. ‘It could not have been the shot,’ they told you. ‘Shut up.’ But, they’re lying. They don’t know that. They don’t know anything more than we know, which is effectively nothing. We can’t say it was the shot. We can’t say it wasn’t the shot. We don’t know whether he got the shot. We don’t know and neither do they. So, why are they telling you they know something they don’t? Well, it’s not the first time of course.”

Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest following the hit from an open-field tackle on Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. He was transferred to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for further testing and treatment, where he remains sedated. 

Needless to say, the segment infuriated a number of fans on social media. 

“We also don’t know if it was micro meteorite that struck him at that exact moment but I’m going to go with occam’s razor and accept the explanation by doctors that violent impacts like this can cause commotion cordis resulting in cardiac arrest,” one of them said, while another wrote, “It’s breathtaking that Fox News Tucker Carlson would give crackpot medical opinion on Damar Hamlin condition, Tucker Carlson show should be canceled”

A Twitter user said, “He should be charged for every unvaccinated death.” One more commented, “What a POS. This is the same guy who claimed the odds of dying by COVID were so low it didn’t make sense to get the vaccine. Tucker Carlson uses Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin’s collapse to spread vaccine misinformation | Media Matters for America.”

Another user noted, “An NFL player collapses with cardiac arrest. Bullshit merchants like Tucker Carlson suggest vaccines might be to blame.” A user wrote, “Tucker Carlson currently honoring Damar Hamlin. He brought on Dr. Peter McCullough to talk about how the COVID vaccine is ‘fatal.’ a touching tribute.”
