Drummer Pete Parada says that was fired by THE OFFSPRING for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Parada, who had been in THE OFFSPRING for nearly a decade and a half, claims to be following the advice of his doctor who said that he should not get the jab due to his pre-existing conditions.
Pete broke the news of his exit from THE OFFSPRING in a social media post on Monday (August 2). He wrote: "I've got some unfortunate and difficult news to share. I know many of my close friends and family would've preferred to hear this privately first — and I apologize for the public nature of my disclosure, but I don't know how to have this conversation multiple times.
"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.
"I caught the virus over a year ago, it was mild for me — so I am confident I'd be able to handle it again, but I'm not so certain I'd survive another post-vaccination round of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, which dates back to my childhood and has evolved to be progressively worse over my lifetime. Unfortunately for me, (and my family — who is hoping to keep me around a bit longer) the risks far outweigh the benefits.
"Since I am unable to comply with what is increasingly becoming an industry mandate — it has recently been decided that I am unsafe to be around, in the studio, and on tour. I mention this because you won't be seeing me at these upcoming shows.
"I also want to share my story so that anyone else experiencing the agony and isolation of getting left behind right now — knows they're not entirely alone.
"While my reason for not getting this jab is medical, I want to make sure I'm not carving out a space that is only big enough for me. I need to state, unequivocally, that I support informed consent — which necessitates choice unburdened by coercion.
"I do not find it ethical or wise to allow those with the most power (government, corporations, organizations, employers) to dictate medical procedures to those with the least power.
"There are countless folks (like me) for whom these shots carry a greater risk than the virus. Most of us don't publicly share a private decision we made in careful consideration with our doctors. We know it's not an easy conversation to unfold.
"If it looks like half the population is having a shockingly different reaction to these jabs than was expected — it's probably because their life experiences have actually been shockingly different, and their reasons range from a conscientious risk/benefit analysis, to the financial inability to take time off work/lack of health care in the event of potential side-effects, to an understandable distrust in a system that has never prioritized the health or well-being of their communities.
"I hope we can learn to make room for all the perspectives and fears that are happening currently. Let's avoid the unfortunate tendency to dominate, dehumanize and shout down at each other. The hesitant population is not a monolithic group. All voices deserve to be heard.
Since I am unable to comply with what is increasingly becoming an industry mandate — it has recently been decided that I am unsafe to be around, in the studio, and on tour.
The courts have not been friendly to people who don’t want to get the vaccine.
I don’t seem to get how you can force somebody to take an experimental inoculation.
Who mandated the vax?
The band voted?
The musicians union?
You got to keep ‘em separated.
“The Offspring” do not sound like Rock-n-Roll rebels
“Who mandated the vax?“
Probably all of the above, PLUS the theaters they are scheduled to play.
I’m out of a job for the same reason, except that I just refuse to get an untested, experimental jab because politicians and CNN tell me I must.
There are other jobs out there.
The vaccine is more dangerous then the chinese virus...!

Sue for damages.
How the Hell can one perform which such a vaxhole group.
” I support informed consent — which necessitates choice unburdened by coercion.”
I’m delighted to read that some people in the entertainment industry are speaking out in favor of personal choice in regards to this Wuhan and vaxx hysteria-good for Parada...
As to the rebel thing, punk bands are in there-ever heard “Low Self Esteem” or “Come Out and Play”? I’ve been a bit of a punk fan for awhile...
My sister in-law has a medical condition also. Her job is talking about making the vaccine mandatory.
My brother’s business is barely hanging on, the next lockdown will put him out of business if the broken supply chain does not do it first.
If my sister in-law loses the job, they could lose their house.
I’ll bet he went straight to his attorney’s office after being let go...
He should sue.
Yeah, that is one they showed by accident, right?
I wish they’d update that and make it public, since the public has a right to know. I read that in the past the CDC has done monthly updates on vaccines where they talk about risks, side effects, etc.
But they haven’t done that with these vaccines. They also don’t advertise them on radio/TV, perhaps because they would have to list the possible side effects and risks.
And people are angry that some don’t trust the CDC. I think those people are angry because they are worried they have made a big mistake.
That was most famously the Federal jerkjudge Lynn Hughes who is known for being a much-reversed Mitthole.
Other federal jerkjudges reside in the DC District where they're harassing political prisoners over vaxxing.
Lastly, the other federal judges are ruling on universities forcing vaxxs on returning students.
My take on that is if the stupidents are too stupid to realize that they're risking their future health for a piece of paper not fit for cleaning their posterior with, it's on them for knuckling.
Excellent post - thanks!
Thanks so much for posting these numbers!
