Tony robbins You can be added to the long list of people spewing misinformation about COVID-19 with wrong jokes and false statistics, and unfortunately … spread your message to a group of marketers.
The controversial self-help guru was a featured speaker at something called Funnel Hacking Live in Orlando, a 3-day conference held by Russell brunson … aimed at driving attendee sales success by listening to motivational stories.
Of course, that’s up Tony’s alley, but he used his time to poke fun at the science and severity of the coronavirus pandemic, while activating the anti-vaccines present by questioning the effectiveness of the vaccine.
Let’s take a look: first, Tony breaks Australia’s night curfew laws by joking that the virus only comes out at night. As almost everyone knows, the curfew is designed to prevent people from filling closed bars and clubs and spreading COVID.
Robbins then scoffs at the concern that the unvaccinated will spread the virus, when in reality … the unvaccinated population largely explains the spread of the Delta variant and most of the hospitalizations and deaths.
Finally, like many others before him who have spilled false information about COVID, Robbins compares it to other everyday risks like driving his car … but creates his own statistics to suit his narrative.
Tony claims that 1,200 people die per day in the US in car accidents, when the real number is closer to 100 per day, while ignoring that more than 2,000 people have died from COVID every day for the past 2 weeks.
Also, the irony is not lost that Robbins was speaking to an audience in Florida, the state with the highest COVID death rate currently in the US.
