Rebel Wilson said she’ll smuggle Covid vaccines from the United States to Australia after criticizing the government over its implementation of lockdown measures.
Per the Independent, a series of lockdowns are currently in place across Australia, with Sydney in its seventh consecutive week, while Melbourne has locked down for the sixth time since the pandemic begun.
Sharing a selfie from the beach to her Instagram Story from her vacation in Italy yesterday (August 8), the Pitch Perfect star said that she was “ready to be a mule” and bring vaccines to Australia.
“Guys I’m ready to be a mule and smuggle vaccines from America to Australia I’ll start in Vegas and commandeer the Qantas planes if I have to just want everyone to get on with their lives in this new-normal and not have Australia be left behind.”
Rebel shared a photo at lunch with former tennis legend John McEnroe during her Italian getaway.
At the moment, only 22 per cent of adults in Australia have been fully vaccinated. This is largely because the country has a shortage of the Pfizer vaccine and an excess of locally manufactured AstraZeneca, which many are refusing to take because of the slight risk of blood clotting. New South Wales and Victoria reportedly have stockpiles of more than one million unwanted doses of AstraZeneca.
However, Moderna was approved for use in Australia as of today.
Last October, Wilson dressed up as “RONA (Warrior Princess)… destroying ‘rona wherever I go.”
