Taylor SwiftFans around the globe had many things to say about actor Miles Teller starring in the singer’s latest music video, and it wasn’t all good. The question on many viewers’ minds: did Teller get vaccinated?
The Whiplash actor appears in Swift’s video as her ex who’s getting married, and yet can’t stop thinking about the pop star. Swift is also featured in the video, causing havoc during the wedding. The video, for the single “I Bet You Think About Me,” was directed by Swift’s close friend, Blake Lively.
Is Teller Anti-Vax?
While the video was loved by many, many pointed out that Teller had not been vaccinated. Swift has been vocal in her support for COVID safety precautions when making music, videos, and some wondered how Swift could overlook a rumored antivaxxer actor.
September the Daily Mail reportedProduction on the Paramount+ series has ceased. The Offer, was shut down after Teller, who allegedly refused vaccinations, tested positive for COVID.
“Miles Teller is not vaccinated. He wouldn’t even get the test,” an on-set source told the newspaper adding, “Now he’s brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down.” The actor’s rep told the tabloid, “Your facts are incorrect” but the rumor mill was already churning.
The Hollywood Reporter weighed in as well, writing, “That positive person was publicly identified as a series star who was said to be unvaccinated.” They also estimated losses for the shutdown to come to $6 million, but a Paramount+ rep said the figure was lower.
Rumors are silenced by the actor
Teller was quick to address the latest rumors, tweeting just hours after the music video dropped, “Hey guys, I don’t usually feel the need to address rumors on here but I am vaccinated and have been for a while.”
This isn’t the only controversy surrounding the Paramount+ show, based on the making of The Godfather. Armie Hammer was accused of cannibalism, sexual assault, and abuse. Teller was hired to replace him.
Vaccination is still a controversial topic. People point fingers and spread lies without knowing the facts. Teller’s story proves that the rumors aren’t always true.
