Punk Band ‘Offspring’ Fires Drummer for Refusing to Take COVID Vaccine Due to His Pre-Existing Conditions

Offspring drummer Pete Parada has been fired by the “punk” band Offspring for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Parada had been in the band for over fourteen years and is following the advice of his doctor who said that he should not get it due to his pre-existing conditions.

“Given my personal medical history and the side-effect profile of these jabs, my doctor has advised me not to get a shot at this time,” Parada wrote in a Twitter thread about his firing.

The drummer has already had the virus as well, meaning he is likely to have the antibodies.
