Chris Brown co-signs Kyrie Irving's anti-vaccine stance, calling him "the real hero."
Conspiracy theorists stick together, it seems. Kyrie Irving, a flat-earther and anti-vaxxer, has a friend in Chris Brown, another celebrity that has a history of sharing contrarian takes on social media, and is sometimes known for pushing his own conspiracy theories.
Following a long month of media scrutiny as Kyrie Irving refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine, effectively losing out on millions of dollars and potentially costing his team a title, Chris Brown has co-signed Kyrie's anti-vaxx stance, calling the hoops star "the real hero" as he continues to be criticized on social media.

Sharing a picture of Kyrie on his Instagram Stories, Chris wrote, "THE REAL HERO!!!! I stand with my brother. WHOEVER DON'T LIKE IT.... Go live your damn life.. ITS HIS CHOICE AND A DAMN GOOD ONE. ALWAYS IN MY BROTHERS CORNER."
Without protection against the virus by way of the jab, anti-vaxxers might not have the best chance to "just live their damn lives."
