A Mexican TV anchor went off on a wild rant against those who refuse to get vaccinated against the coronavirus or wear a mask in public.

The anchor, Leonardo Schwebel, was appearing on Telediario Guadalajara, when he, quite literally, got up in the “face” of viewers for not trusting in vaccines or, at the very least, wearing a mask.

His diatribe, which was full of wild gesticulations and mask, waving, went viral.

Schwebel later said he felt it was necessary to shout and get so empassioned to get his point across as Mexico and many other countries are facing record high coronavirus cases thanks, mostly, to the omicron variant.

The clip is entirely in Spanish, but translations of his rant note he called “anti-vax” people “morons.” He also called for viewers to at least wear a mask in public to help prevent the spread of the deadly disease.

Coronavirus vaccines and boosters are highly recommended by multiple public health officials and experts. COVID-19 vaccines and boosters have undergone extensive testing and monitoring to ensure their safety. Scientific research has shown the vaccines and boosters to be very safe and highly effective in decreasing the likelihood of contracting the illness and, if one does become sick, symptoms are less severe and less likely to lead to hospitalization or death.
