Australian boxing legend Anthony Mundine has launched a stunning anti-vax tirade on social media, urging his followers not to get the Covid-19 vaccination.
In an expletive-laden Facebook post, Mundine strongly encouraged his fans to avoid receiving any vaccinations for Covid-19, suggesting a jab is a “death wish”.

“My people don’t get conned in getting the shot!” he posted on Saturday.
“Do your research it’s a death wish!
“F*** the travel for now we fight that s*** in court it’s all fear mongering.
“Those who already got it don’t get another one & look to get the antidote suramin (African root) !!!”.
Mundine’s plea to his social media followers goes against all recommended health advice, with medical professionals urging people to get vaccinated when they can.
It’s the second time this year Mundine has spoken out strongly against Australia’s Covid-19 vaccine rollout.
In May, the 46-year-old shared a bizarre post to his Facebook page, calling on his followers to “do your research” about the coronavirus.
Veteran broadcaster Ray Hadley blasted Mundine for calling the Covid-19 vaccine rollout “blatant genocide” and suggesting there are “evil plans” in place to enforce global depopulation — while offering no proof to back up his outrageous claims.
Mundine claimed, without any supporting evidence whatsoever, the vaccine paralyses the body’s immune system. In actuality, vaccines work by training the immune system to fight diseases.
“You take the shot then you will have serious health problems even death!” Mundine wrote at the time.

“In the past, I’ve ignored your rantings … because I think at the base of it you’re not a bad person. But this irresponsible stupidity that you’re now posting can cause great concern for people,” Hadley said.
“Anthony, I’ll take my medical advice from professors and doctors, not you.
“You read that somewhere on the internet, did you, Anthony? Or did someone read it to you?
“It’s just mind-boggling that a young man who’s reasonably intelligent, one would hope, could come out with such unadulterated bulls**t. Because that’s exactly what it is.”
The government’s handling of Australia’s vaccine rollout has come under fire for not matching the speed and efficiency of other vaccination efforts around the world.
In April, Prime Minister Scott Morrison scrapped plans to announce a new deadline to vaccinate all Australians by the end of the year against Covid-19 in an admission over the “uncertainties” surrounding the program.
Vaccination efforts have also been complicated by a small number of cases of people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine developing blood clots. Around four to six people out of every million suffered the rare illness after receiving the AstraZeneca shot.
The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) subsequently advised everyone under the age of 50 to receive an alternative to the AstraZeneca shot.
More than 200,000 Australians have participated in feeding back data on the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines. Some 51.8 per cent of respondents reported some kind of adverse reaction, but only 1.2 per cent experienced reactions serious enough for them to seek medical attention.
Mundine retired from professional boxing following a first-round knockout defeat against Michael Zerafa in March.
The former rugby league star was an embarrassment in his final fight, failing to lay a glove on Zerafa and being knocked down twice in two minutes.
Mundine had won just one fight since 2014 and lost five of his final six bouts, taking his official record to 48-11.
The former world champion had “retired” several times before, most notably after his brutal loss to Jeff Horn three years ago.
