Delph posts controversial Instagram story
Fabian Delph has risked severe backlash for publishing an image on social media which appears to have anti-vaccination connotations.
Posted to his Instagram page was an image with a quote that read, ‘It’s now a “conspiracy theory” to believe that the immunes system is capable of doing the jab it was designed to do.’

If Delph wants to be an anti-vaxxer, that’s up to him but he shouldn’t be trying to push it onto people via his social media accounts. Hugely irresponsible on his part https://t.co/oStIll1Nk3

Delph not alone
This comes after Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst publicly spoke out against the coronavirus pandemic and questioned the need for vaccination.
2/ Host @jochenbreyer didn’t hold back saying his previous statement in content terms was nonsense and in the realm of conspiracy theory talk. Did he stand by that? Basically he said he has made “the best decision for himself.” All very awkward.

This relates to a post made by the Dutch striker back in December where he said, ‘Imagine there is a vaccine that is so safe that you have to be threatened to take it – for a disease that is so deadly that you have to be tested to know that you have it.’
Wolfsburg spoke with the player but little has surfaced about it since.
