Cheers alum Woody Harrelson and Say Anything star John Cusack are the latest Hollywood stars to promote conspiracy theories surrounding the COVID-19 virus and its relation to the 5G networks. According to the theory, the new powerful 5G networks are weakening the human immune system and making people vulnerable to coronavirus.

Harrelson posted a report earlier this week about the “negative effects of 5G” and the possible role it has played in the pandemic.

“I haven’t fully vetted it I find it very interesting,” Harrelson wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post, adding that “5G radiation” is “exacerbating” the spread of COVID-19 and making it more lethal.

On Tuesday, John Cusack joined the conspiracy chorus, claiming that his sources tell him that 5G is bad for people’s health.

“5 – G wil [sic] be proven to be very very bad for people’s health,” wrote Cusack in a now-deleted tweet. “I got sources in scientific community – and medical.”

Cusack added that his critics were “just dumb” and “f*cking sheep.” However, he never voiced the dangers he fears because of the alleged connection. Apparently, the 5G coronavirus conspiracy theory claims that the 5G networks started in Wuhan, China, at the same time the COVID-19 pandemic was born.

Some conspiracy theorists claim that the radiation from the new 5G networks are weakening immune systems, while others posit that the network actually caused COVID-19. Some people have taken the theory so seriously that there have been a series of arson attacks on phone towers in the United Kingdom. UK cabinet minister Michael Gove called the attacks “dangerous nonsense.”

Since both Woody Harrelson and John Cusack have deleted their comments, it’s pretty clear that the posts didn’t go over well with fans or skeptics.

Critic Dr. Michael Head of the University of Southampton told The Evening Standard that “Conspiracy theorists are a public health danger who once read a Facebook page. The celebrities fanning the flames of these conspiracy theorists should be ashamed.”

What do you think? Is there any merit to the idea that COVID-19 is connected to the new 5G network? Or, is it a conspiracy theory that is spreading “dangerous nonsense?”

    Only 5 countries have 5G towers, but 184 have coronavirus.... And if it WAS weakening our immune system, how come we're not picking up the flu and other viruses just as badly? Can people not think logically and w/ reason?

    It's not the actors in bubbles. You tube, facebook, and google are deleting anything that is said against 5g. If the conspiracy theorists are wrong, where's the debate? There isn't one. They just get removed so most of the world doesn't know what's going on. You can never get the whole picture if someone removes half of it from sight.

    These actors have no idea what life is like outside their bubbles. Consequently they can't comprehend the impact of their ignorant comments
