Nia Jax was released from her WWE contract in November of last year. Jax was controversial superstar during her time with the company, both due to fan perceptions of unsafe in-ring work and because of a hard-line anti-vaccine stance during the global COVID-19 pandemic. It’s even been reported (and, essentially confirmed by Nia herself in a recent interview) that an inability to fulfill her obligations due to being unvaccinated played a huge role in her firing.
A fan recently took to Twitter to call Nia Jax out for her anti-vaccine viewpoints. They shared an Instagram post from 2020 that made erroneous assumptions and twisted some unrelated statistics while touting natural immunity as the best protection. Study after study has disproven this.
Nia responded to the mocking fan. The former WWE star said she stands by her post from two years ago. Nia also claimed she knows many professional athletes who are using “real” cards. In other words, they are legitimate cards, but the people using them have not been vaccinated. Thus, they are fake cards.
“Hahaha! I stand by that too. Honey, if you really think that all your favorites don’t feel the same as I do, you’re sadly mistaken. I know a lot of people in many professional sports that just paid & got a real card from a doctor..sooooo”
Nia Jax is one of several high-visibility athletes who have used their platforms to downplay the vaccines. Kyrie Irving famously missed a huge chunk of this season because he does not believe the vaccines are safe. Fans with common sense are likely to seek medical advice from their doctor, not from professional wrestlers.
