Samantha Bee channels Riverdale to take on anti-vaxxers
Hey, you groovy kids. Listen to Samantha Bee‘s Riverdale crew. “Rebelling against your parents to make sure you don’t get Tetanus is hot.”
Bee initially sat down with Ethan Lindenberger, the 18-year-old Ohio teen who made headlines when he vaccinated himself against his parents’ wishes. But she put a brief pause in the Full Frontal interview to take viewers inside the world of Full Fronterdale, a place where the kids are in charge, man, and they’re demanding vaccinations.
“Maybe it is bad to get diseases from the Middle Ages,” Bee says as a Betty character after coughing up blood.
And just like in the town of Riverdale, the parents in Full Fronterdale are a bit much, only instead of bending over backwards to prove why being in a cult is totally normal, they are anti-vaxxers. To that, Bee just says, “Moms, right?”
