The comments came during a Q&A on Snapchat. One viewer asked his thoughts on the pandemic and the response to fight the virus.

“It is being used for population control, and in terms of being able to control the masses of people. Because of this virus the whole world is being controlled. You are required to wear masks, and who knows what happens when this vaccine comes out,” Porter, Jr. said. “You might have to have this vaccine in order to travel. That would be crazy, I’ve never been vaccinated in my life. I’ve never had any shots or anything like that. It could get crazy, it is definitely an agenda behind everything that’s going on right now and everything, all you can do is sit back and watch what’s going on. Don’t get too emotionally involved. But, yeah, it is a serious thing. It is a real thing. But it’s being overblown.”

Porter, Jr. was the first round draft pick for the Nuggets in 2018.

    Another STUPID MORON!! What an idiotic statement. In fact the entire basketball season needs to be canceled because of the fact this people will be breathing hard in each other’s faces along with pushing and shoving opponents on the court. They really need to cancel all sports for this year until they get this deadly virus under control

    It’s attitudes like this that explain why in the states that reopened without policies in place, the most new cases are among those from 19 to 40 (MPJ is 22) – including more than 50% of the hospitalizations. Note that while most of those patients recover, not all do (and even babies and older children, even without “preexisting conditions” have died from it as well) – and the “best minds” are divided on whether having the disease is going to cause long-term or even lifelong complications for those who are infected then recover – and recent news indicates that for a significant number of those who do recover, they often face “recovery issues” (like getting back stamina, having breathing issues, etc) for several months. I wonder if he’ll change his tune if HE gets a “more than mild” case of the disease – or if someone he loves does.
