Anti-Vaxx protesters picket the return of the Foo Fighters indoor show
The Foo Fighters returned from their live concert on Tuesday night (June 15) in Agoura Hills, Calif., But after announcing their club show would be for those who had been vaccinated against COVID-19, they met anti-vaccine protesters, including actor Rick SchrÃ¶der.
Schroder had expressed his opposition to the group’s decision to allow only those who had been vaccinated to attend the show earlier in the week, posting: “Dave Grohl is an ignorant punk who needs to be slapped for supporting discrimination. Ignorance comes in all shapes and sizes. Kurt Cobain laughs at you Dave with millions of patriots …. fool. “Although Schroder was not seen carrying a sign like many were in the line, he joined those who were walking.
The actor was one of several dozen protesters who gathered outside the Canyon Club where a crowd of 600 was due to attend the Foo Fighters’ first indoor date with a full audience since the start of the pandemic.
Billboards accused the group of “bringing back segregation”, with one of the protesters telling the local CBS affiliate: “What they’re doing is just saying vax, separating humans n ‘ is not correct. Those of us with healthy immune systems should be able to enjoy these freedoms like everyone else. “
Below is a sample of some of the social media posts regarding the show and the event.
