If we start a conspiracy theory that COVID-19 turns you gay, would Republicans stay home?

Actor George Takei has a brilliant idea to trick Trump supporters into following common-sense guidelines for slowing the spread of coronavirus during the global pandemic.

He wants to start a conspiracy theory that COVID-19 turns people gay.

“I’m starting a rumor on the Breitbart chats that Covid-19 turns you gay,” Takei tweeted. “That should keep a lot of these idiots at home.”

Despite the obvious joke, the far-right outlet that served as a mouthpiece for Donald Trump during the presidential campaign, quickly rushed out a story denying that their readers were “idiots” who would fall for it.

First,

Second, and seriously, I could see this having the unintended backlash against the gay community, especially gay men.

But, overall, it really does speak to the height of stupidity about a certain population of our country.

2. Oh, you know there are some who for sure would believe it!

That's what's so funny and sad, all at the same time.
