An anti-vaxxer has called for a boycott of Cards Against Humanity after taking offence at one of the party game's cards.
Those who are familiar with Cards Against Humanity will know the game is unafraid to touch on taboo topics, and this particular card is perhaps one of its least offensive jokes.
In a post that has now appeared on Reddit group ‘insanepeoplefacebook’, the individual can be seen complaining about a card with the text: "Not vaccinating my children because I am stupid.”
Of all the things to take offence at during a game of Cards Against Humanity, this one does seem rather silly.
The individual calls the card ‘beyond in-compassionate' and finishes off the rant with ‘#BoycottCardsAgainstHumanity’.
Not sure that one will be trending anytime soon.
Nevertheless, the individual was put in their place by Reddit users who mocked their choice of words.
One commenter sarcastically replied: “How dare this game built on offensive humour offend me!”
Another joked: “‘Am I so out of touch?!’ No… it’s the humorous card game that is wrong…”
The anti-vaxx rhetoric was not lost on one user who said: “You could just stop being a blithering moron and vaccinate your kids.”
A fourth individual commented: “Anyone who gets their panties in a twist over a CAH card is not someone I need to waste time with, so I must thank the makers of the game for this convenient litmus test.”
So, if you’re thinking of playing the controversial card game this Christmas, make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into to avoid getting ridiculed on the internet.
There was good news this week for those of us who are attuned to the benefits of vaccines, after the UK government announced everyone over the age of 18 would be offered a booster jab to help combat the omicron variant.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is now advising that all adults aged 18 to 39 should be offered a booster dose, in order of descending age groups, after early evidence has suggested that higher antibody levels may protect better against the new Covid variant.
Booster doses should be given no sooner than three months after people have had their second dose of an original vaccine - shaving three months off the current six-month wait, according to the JCVI.
Adults over the age of 40 can currently receive their booster vaccine if three months have passed since their second dose.
Younger age groups will be invited to receive their boosters soon, in descending five-year age bands.
