Model Anwar Hadid says he “absolutely” won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine — insisting the human body is capable of “way more than we think.”
The 21-year-old, who is the brother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid, was asked by an Instagram follower if he’d take the vaccine to which he responded, “Absolutely not,” according to TMZ.
During the same question and answer session, Anwar was then asked by another fan, “Why are you anti vax?”
“Either I just don’t get it or I get it and god willing heal from it and get antibodies rather than do that process unnaturally, our bodies are made by the creator to do way more than we think,” he responded.
Anwar was diagnosed in 2012 with Lyme disease, which could make him high-risk for a poor outcome if he contracts the virus, TMZ reported.
Some fans criticized the model’s explanation for why he won’t get the vaccine.
“does homeboy not get flu shots? What if he (god forbid) gets cancer? You not gonna help yourself in anyway?” wrote one user.
