This shit used to be called evolution, the weak die the strong survive. I know probably a solid 15 people including myself that got it over Christmas. All unvacced except maybe 3. Everyone was over it in a few days. 2 got substantially sicker than the others and they were vaxxed I love how there is still people out there think that vaccine was some kind of magical cure! It’s not! It is a preventative measure for serious illness! Not once ever did anyone say you can’t catch covid while vaccinated or get extremely ill! People pleeeeeese listen properly!

Since he had pneumonia in both lungs and a bad liver. Would he have died 'from' covid or 'with' covid. I am glad he's okay, but how would that have been classified? How did he get THAT bad ? He’s vaccinated. It shouldn’t be THAT bad if he’s vaccinated. Somethings fishy It’s all about your immune system .. i know a couple of unvaxxed ppl had it and boom didn’t have it … see y’all out this bitch doin everything u see the sun but gettn that immune system right but hey keep listening to the gov nd the news

100%? ... after what his body has gone through? nah, I don't think so. Funny because my friend who is unvaxxed had it and had nothing more than a sniffle. Strange 😂😂 but not really. I was wondering where you been. I thought he was on vacation We all know the feeling brother Or the vaccine had little to no effect and his body’s natural immune system beat it…

Stephen A. Smith details scary COVID-19 battle: ‘Didn’t know if I was gonna make it’“They told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad it was.” Covid only thing that can shut him up, that truly shows how deadly this virus is. I watched this guy shit on Rodgers for not getting the vax and Rodgers barely got sick when he caught it. Same for Kyrie Irving. Karma is a bitch to assholes. not a fan

Remember that time you got the “actual flu shot” back in 2010…but still got the flu? Weird how those vaccine things work. But but but get the vaccine you will only have mild symptoms Nasty stuff I don’t wish it on Mr.Smith, or anybody! I bet that was the only time in his life that he didn’t run his mouth. 🤷‍♂️

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 who Same here. After one dose of vaccine which probably saved me. Also high heart enzymes Lucky

So that's why my HANDSOME SWEETZATTZADDY WAS M.I.A ...HE COULDA CALLED ME ...I WOULD BEEN THERE 2 WAIT ON HIM HAND & FOOT ❗️❗️❗️🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰😍😍😍😍🥰🥰🥰😍 Call BS And if rooting for cowboys was the cure, he still wouldn't Shiiii mf aint the only one 😭 👆🏿👆🏿 zee_the_creator He’s a drama queen These comments are so ignorant 🙄 Every human has their own genetic make up. Out of 7 billion people on this planet, of course nothing is 100% for all people. There are always going to be anomalies. There’s always going to be a 1%. Smdh at y’all.

He is right thou, i am vaccinated and experiencing covid symptoms also. I haven't been sick in years. This cornavirus is no joke 🤔 Even though you hate on my Cowboys, glad you are getting better. God Bless

Former State Sen. Shirley Smith entering Cuyahoga County Executive raceFormer Ohio state senator Shirley Smith has not yet officially launched her campaign for Cuyahoga County Executive, but she says she's running.

I wonder what his pre existing condition is? he is being paid to say this...to encourage the jab I really hate that God was referenced to help save his life, when so many others have died. I guess those people didn't have god on their side. I don't like him but I am glad he survived. Not to be Devil's advocate but how does he know it would have been worse if he wasn't vaccinated? I know an unvaccinated woman who just caught covid and was totally asymptomatic. I don't know for sure but maybe it has to do more with the person than the vaccine

Bet he took ivermectin. The vaccine prevents you from getting Covid. Wrong. Well the vaccine prevents you from transferring it. Wrong. The vaccine prevents you from going to the hospital. Wrong. How many more times do we got to keep moving the goal posts back? Some people are still so fucking stupid with questions like wasn't he vaccinated Yes he was and he still was sick why because is the fucking virus luckily he was and that he's still alive today

We need to tell and hear stories of how covid impacted us in 2020 and 2021. Well done. Better days ahead stephenasmith oh well 🖕🏾

Ben Affleck Promised to Thank Kevin Smith at Oscars, Then Forgot (Twice)Ben Affleck promised he'd thank Kevin Smith at the Oscars if he won for Good Will Hunting, but he forgot. Years later, Affleck's Argo was nominated... 'And then I told him, 'If I ever win again I swear to God I'm going to thank you.' Forgot again.' 🤣 lmaooooo Ben Affleck was distracted by dealing with a code 10-82. Kevin smith is not kev anymore. Hollywood made him nerfed

And he didnt come back a changed man? Absolute bollox It was destiny that when the cowgirls lose... he back. Strange but a little over 2 years in to this ....and this is the first time I feel really afraid. I have gotten it yet. And I feel I will & hoping to survive. It's like the black death (that lasted 7 years). But this will be around for the next 100.

If the vaccine saved him, what is saving the unvaxxed? Damn he looked healthy when the was mocking/laughing at the Cowboys when they lost yesterday I'm glad what could've went wrong didn't for our brutha stephenasmith 💯 Isn’t he vaccinated though 😏😏🤔🤔 Maybe he should “GET ON THE WEED!!!”

Parents of 'Jeopardy!' contestant Brayden Smith sue hospital, alleging wrongful deathParents of the late 'Jeopardy!' winner Brayden Smith have filed a lawsuit against the Nevada hospital where their son underwent surgery last year, alleging negligence and medical malpractice by staff that led to his death. My child died in a Nevada hospital due to negligence and malpractice. She was left with a collapsed lung for hours resulting in acute respiratory distress syndrome. Took her 10 days to die, on a vent and in a coma many years before Covid. My family left the state.

"I can't tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today," Smith told his co-hosts,"because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn't know if I was going to make it." Smith said doctors told him if he hadn't been vaccinated, he likely would be dead. "That’s how bad it was," Smith said."I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad. It ravaged me." Smith, though, was in good spirits in his return to TV -- he trolled the hell out of the Dallas Cowboys relentlessly for their playoff loss -- and he added that he's now testing negative for the virus and is on his way to getting back to 100 percent.
