The government’s use of gang leaders to spread the jab message has been mocked online by commenters.
An article covering the gang appeared on the international site for news agency RT News.
The policy drew the ire of many commenters, noting that in reality there is very little that separates gangs and governments.
‘Lol lol the gov allways finds a new low. This is even a new one for them. Do they really think the people who have not taken the clot shot will now because some gang member said too. Lol lol’ noted Allan Rooney.
‘Why are they so desperate for the general public to get this vaccine, that is still an experiment? How much do politicians make from investments in the companies pushing the vaccines?’ – AM Hants.
‘Another proof that there is no the difference in between the gangs and the governments’ – Nick.
‘While New Zealand citizens are forced to stay in lock down for months and penalized for breaching the gangs have a free pass to move around the country delivering drugs, cash and guns all with immunity. This govt is a complete joke and insult to all.’ – John Smith.
