Not even in the face of the suffering of a 28-year-old boy who was hit by a cerebral hemorrhage triggered by a fulminant leukemia sudden manages to appease the conspiracy madness of the no-vax. Michele Merlo, aka Mike Bird, is a singer who made himself known to the general public thanks to his participation in Friends, the talent show of Maria De Filippi that airs on Canale 5. The boy’s family has made it known that now is hospitalized in serious condition in the intensive care unit of the Maggiore hospital in Bologna, where he underwent an emergency surgery.
The news shocked all fans of the singer and of Friends: the messages of encouragement to Michele Merlo were wasted, even from other protagonists of the talent show. Who, however, was incredibly targeted by no-vax, unable to respect a moment like this: with their usual “insight”, they went to fish out videos and posts published by Merlo on social networks in which he makes fun of all the most common vaccine conspiracy theories. “He was also funny”, is one of the horrendous comments of a no-vax, according to which what happened to the singer is attributable to the vaccine.
We are well beyond madness, also because it is not known whether the boy was really vaccinated or not: certainly there was only the irony he made against those who think that inoculation is evil. Merlo’s last post was published on Instagram last June 2: “I would like a sunset but my throat and head explode with pain. Remedies? “.
