Karl Anthony-Towns to Kyrie Irving’s vaccination stance: ‘Huwag kang magpalusot’


While Kyrie Irving is currently embroiled in a controversy regarding his stance against the COVID-19 vaccine, Karl Anthony-Towns continues to encourage everyone to get vaccinated.

While the Minnesota Timberwolves superstar respects Irving’s choice, he will always remain pro-vaccine.

After all, Towns saw her mother and multiple family member succumb to the deadly disease.

“I’m obviously a strong believer in the vaccine,” Towns said before their game against the Nets.”I’ve been through so much and it would be kind of contradictory to not be on the pro-vaccine side. But what I will say is that I believe in choice and I like to give people their choice and I have no problem with people having their choice.”

Towns may have no problem with opting the COVID-19 vaccine, he doesn’t want to hear any other excuses as to why they refuse to get inoculated.

“I think that’s not only a human right, but it’s an American right as well.. … They make their own decisions on their bodies and their own families. I have no ill will towards that,” Towns continued. “The only thing I would say is just don’t give me a (expletive) excuse why [you don’t get the vaccine]…You don’t want to do it, that’s your choice.”
