U.S. Surfer Kelly Slater Slams 'Virtuous Vaccinated' Ahead Of Australian Competitions

American surf champ Kelly Slater has been warned he can’t compete in Australia without a COVID jab after he slammed the “virtuous vaccinated” in a post on social media.

Australian Federal Sports Minister Richard Colbeck quickly pointed out that there’s “no chance” Slater, 49, can come into the country to compete in two World Surf League championship events this spring — the Rip Curl Pro south of Melbourne, and the Margaret River Pro in Western Australia — unless he’s vaccinated.

Slater has not revealed his vaccination status, but he repeated unfounded anti-vaccination talking points in his social media commentary.
