Wrestling Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan made a shocking evidence-free claim that comedian Betty White and Sidney Poitier passed away due to the Covid-19 vaccine.

On Sunday, comedian Josh Pray posted a video about comedian and Full House star Bob Saget and his unexpected death.

In the video’s comments, one viewer speculated that Saget’s death was linked to his vaccine.

“Wellll many directions we can go with this, but I will take jab for $500, Alex,” the person wrote.

Hogan appeared to respond to that person’s comment in agreement in a now-deleted post.

“100 per cent Betty and Sidney were also jabbed [they’re] dropping like flies, but they’ll never say it,” he wrote.

Naturally, people on Twitter and Facebook criticised Hogan for his seemingly anti-vaccine sentiments.

“Did not have Hulk Hogan on my anti-vax bingo card, but here we are, claiming 95 & 99-year-olds died because of it. Honestly, any year after 75, I consider bonus rounds so srsly wtf?” someone wrote.

“Hulk Hogan: What were the causes of death in this 94-year-old man and 99-year-old woman? Clearly vaccines! There can be no other explanation!” another added.

A third wrote: “Macho man was better. It’s disgusting how these people just use people’s death as part of their warped worldview.”

White passed away aged 99 on December 31 at 9:30 am in her home just two weeks before her 100th birthday on January 17.

Poitier passed on January 6, aged 94, in his home. The cause hasn’t been announced as of yet.

Saget, aged 65, passed away on Sunday in his hotel room in Florida, and the cause is still undetermined.
