Woody Harrelson raised more than a few eyebrows during his “Saturday Night Live” appearance … this after the actor went all conspiratorial on COVID vaccines … something he’s done before.
Harrelson leaned in on COVID as this week’s SNL host, delivering a rambling opening monologue about smoking a joint and parking himself against a tree in Central Park while reading the “craziest script.”
After 6 minutes, Woody got to the point, and it was sumpin’ …“So the movie goes like this: The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes. And people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over.”
He wrapped it up this way …“I threw the script away. I mean, who was going to believe that crazy idea? Being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day.”
Thank you, @nbcsnl, for Woody Harrelson’s insipid anti-vax monologue. Who are going to have guest host next week, Scott Baio? Rob Schneider? Kevin Sorbo? Maybe invite Kanye back while you’re at it.

Social media wasn’t amused. TV producer, Lee Goldberg tweeted, “Thank you, @nbcsnl, for Woody Harrelson’s insipid anti-vax monologue.”
A second person wrote, “That’s NOT COOL! I lost the best mother figure to me & my sister that we had who died only 4hrs after contracting the f***ing virus!”
Another person chimed in, “This Guy IS a joke.”
As you may know, Woody has previously floated conspiracy theories about the COVID pandemic, also calling mask-wearing “absurd” and bragging that he never contracted the virus because he’s “internally clean.” He also suggested 5G cellular networks were responsible for the spread of COVID, but he later deleted the post.
