An Academy Award-winning actor denounced the demonization of the unvaccinated during the COVID-19 outbreak and regrets his own anger toward those resisting standard anti-COVID policies such as masking.

Tim Robbins, famous for his leading role in the beloved film The Shawshank Redemption, decried the effect that COVID health “doctrine” “had on us as human beings” on British comedian Russell Brand’s December 18 podcast.
“We turned into tribal, angry, vengeful people,” Robbins said. “I don’t think that is something that is sustainable for the earth. That we start demonizing someone who doesn’t agree with our particular health policies and turn them into monsters. Turn them into pariahs. Say that they don’t deserve a hospital bed.”

He suggested that such a stance from someone who considers vax refusal unwise is hypocritical considering that we still “take care of” people who have made “bad mistakes,” like those who overdose on drugs.
“Because we’re compassionate. Because we want to make sure that people live. And this turned into ‘You should f—ing die because you have not complied.’ That’s incredibly dangerous.”
Robbins, however, said he himself used to have this vengeful mindset, explaining to Brand how he initially accepted the prevailing COVID narrative to the hilt and without question.
“I bought into it. … I was masking everywhere. I was keeping my social distance. I was adhering to the requests made of me, and I felt angry at people that didn’t do that,” the liberal actor told Brand.
It was not until he traveled to the United Kingdom, where he said he saw many people defying health protocols, that Robbins began to question government health policies.
“When I saw that there wasn’t a huge death rate [in Britain], after I witnessed personally what was happening, I started to wonder more and more about what we were being told and whether it was true or not,” Robbins told Brand.
His perspective further shifted when he walked amid an anti-lockdown protest in London out of curiosity.
