Did James Earl Jones Sign Over Rights To His Voice?!

Did James Earl Jones Sign Over Rights To His Voice?!

James Earl Jones did NOT sign over the Darth Vader voice rights to Lucasfilm, or a Ukrainian AI company!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : James Earl Jones Signed Over Darth Vader Voice Rights!

Many media outlets breathlessly reported that James Earl Jones, who voiced Darth Vader, had apparently signed over the rights to his own voice!

They claimed that he was retiring from voicing Darth Vader, and signed over the rights to his voice to Respeecher, a Ukrainian AI technology company.

Truth : James Earl Jones Did NOT Sign Over Darth Vader Voice Rights!

It is peculiar that so many mainstream media FALSELY reported that James Earl Jones signed over the rights to his own voice.

That is categorically FALSE, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Vanity Fair Never Said He Signed Over Rights To Darth Vader Voice

The claims that James Earl Jones signed over the rights to his voice were based on a Vanity Fair article, called “Darth Vader’s Voice Emanated From War-Torn Ukraine“.

The story was about Respeecher, a Ukrainian voice cloning company that uses artificial intelligence to create new dialogue from archival recordings.

Respeecher had earlier helped Lucasfilm generate the voice of a young Luke Skywalker for The Book of Boba Fett, as well as making Darth Vader sound 45 years younger in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Anthony Breznican of Vanity Fair never said, in his article, that Jones signed over the rights to the Darth Vader voice, to Respeecher.

In fact, the word “rights” was never mentioned in the entire article!

Fact #2 : JEJ Approved Of The AI-Generated Dialogue

What Anthony wrote was that when James Earl Jones heard the new dialogue created by Respeecher, he approved (signed off) of the work. (my emphasis in bold)

When he ultimately presented Jones with Respeecher’s work, the actor signed off on using his archival voice recordings to keep Vader alive and vital even by artificial means.

The term “signed off” in this context meant “to approve or acknowledge something”.

It does not mean Jones “signed away” his rights – “to give (something, such as rights or property) to someone”.

Fact #3 : Respeecher Does Not Own Rights To Darth Vader’s Voice

Respeecher was contracted by Lucasfilm to generate new Darth Vader dialogue based on James Earl Jones’ archival voice recordings.

James Earl Jones never signed over the rights to his voice to Respeecher, and Respeecher certainly does NOT own the rights to his voice.

Ukrainian start-up Respeecher … uses archival recordings and a proprietary A.I. algorithm to create new dialogue with the voices of performers from long ago.

The company worked with Lucasfilm to generate the voice of a young Luke Skywalker for Disney+’s The Book of Boba Fett, and the recent Obi-Wan Kenobi series tasked them with making Darth Vader sound like James Earl Jones’s dark side villain from 45 years ago.

Fact #4 : Lucasfilms Owns The Rights To Darth Vader

The Darth Vader character, including his voice, is owned by LucasFilms.

James Earl Jones does not actually own the Darth Vader voice, and is unable to legally “sign away” those rights to anyone, even if he wanted to.

It’s like how he doesn’t own the rights to his famous CNN announcements – “This is CNN” and “This is CNN International”, which belong to… you guessed it – CNN.

Fact #5 : James Earl Jones Did Not Officially Retire

Many media outlets also falsely claimed that Jones had retired. Not once was it mentioned in the Vanity Fair article that he retired.

In fact, the Vanity Fair article pointed out that Jones helped Lucasfilm and the Respeecher team with the Darth Vader speech in Obi-Wan Kenobi :

Jones is credited for guiding the performance on Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Wood describes his contribution as “a benevolent godfather.”

They inform the actor about their plans for Vader and heed his advice on how to stay on the right course.

Now, Jones is 91 years old, and has not appeared in public in a long time. However, he still appears to be working in some fashion, and has not officially retired, as alleged.

Did BTS RM Beat Henry Cavill As World’s Most Handsome Man?!

Did RM (Kim Nam-joon) of the Korean boy band BTS beat Henry Cavill as the World’s Most Handsome Man?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : BTS RM Beat Henry Cavill As Most Handsome Man!

The Internet just went berserk with the news that Kim Nam-joon beat Henry Cavill as the World’s Most Handsome Man in the TC Candler survey.

Many websites went viral with articles claiming that the BTS band leader (also known as RM) dethroned Henry Cavill for the title. Here is just two examples :

BTS Member Kim Namjoon is now the most handsome man in the world by defeating Henry Cavill, says a survey by TC Candler.

Henry Cavill, was considered the most handsome man in the world. However, BTS leader has taken away the title from him.

The British actor Henry Cavill is undoubtedly the most popular actor presently. He is the number 1 Superman, ran with Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, is Geralt in The Witcher, and is a contender for the next James Bond.

However, he is still one place behind in the list of the most handsome men in the world. Although he dominated the list for quite a long time, according to netizens Superman doesn’t hold a candle to BTS leader, RM!

According to a recent survey that TC Candler conducted for the most handsome man alive, Kim Namjoon also known as RM raced ahead of him to take the number one spot. Although this is the first time for the Korean pop star, Cavill has been a permanent feature on the list.

BTS RM Did Not Beat Henry Cavill As Most Handsome Man… Yet

The truth is – this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to generate hype for the page views and ad money, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Henry Cavill Was Never Voted World’s Most Handsome Man

As handsome as Witcher star Henry Cavill is, he was never voted World’s Most Handsome Man in any TC Candler annual lists.

In fact, both Henry Cavill and RM (Kim Nam-joon) from BTS were never even in the Top 5 of any TC Candler annual list ever!

So the claim that RM from BTS beat Henry Cavill for the top spot is already wrong.

Fact #2 : Voting Only Takes Place In December

TC Candler only opens voting for the 100 Most Beautiful Faces and 100 Most Handsome Faces in December of every year.

In other words, voting has not even occurred for the 2022 edition of either list, so any claim that RM (Kim Nam-joon) from BTS or Henry Cavill winning the 2022 list is false.

Fact #3 : TC Candler Refuted The Claim

TC Candler issued a statement on August 23, 2022, refuting the claim that Kim Nam-joon beat Henry Cavill as the World’s Most Handsome Man in their survey.

Statement:

For those who haver been asking and spreading the meme… No, we have not released the 2022 Lists yet. We only ever release the Top 100 lists in late December.

As much as we like both RM (Kim Nam-joon) and Henry Cavill, neither of them has ever been crowned the winner or even been in the Top 5.

Nothing has been decided in 2022 and nothing will be until we hold a vote in December.

If you see the meme or the news story floating around social media, please ignore and don’t share.

Thank you — TC Candler

Fact #4 : This Is Just Another Example Of Celebrity Fake News

This is yet another example of fake news created by celebrity blogs to drive traffic and increase page views for ad money.

Ashton Kutcher : Did Vaccine Cause His Vasculitis?!

Did the COVID-19 vaccine cause Ashton Kutcher to develop vasculitis that almost made him blind and deaf?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Ashton Kutcher Developed Vasculitis From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after Ashton Kutcher revealed that he suffered a super rare form of vasculitis that almost made him blind and deaf, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that it was caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Ken Matthews – How many Covid-19 vaccine shots did Ashton Kutcher take? nevermind.

the vaccine made ashton kutcher blind and limp

#AshtonKutcher says he has #Vasculitis that is an auto immune disease. Bruce Willis suddenly developed such disease too. Do you know it’s in the 9 pages report released by #FDA showing the adverse effects of the #Pfizer #vaccine ? Read those 9 pages! #VaccineSideEffects #wakeup

 

Truth : Ashton Kutcher Did NOT Get Vasculitis From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Ashton Kutcher Fully Recovered From Vasculitis

On August 8, 2022, Ashton Kutcher revealed on an episode of National Geographic’s Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge that he was “lucky to be alive” after dealing with a rare form of vasculitis – inflammation of the blood vessels.

Like two years ago I had this weird, super rare form of vasculitis, that like knocked out my vision, it knocked out my hearing, it knocked out like all my equilibrium.

Kutcher said it took him about a year to recover from his vasculitis, but he fully recovered from it.

You don’t really appreciate it until it’s gone. Until you go, ‘I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again.

Fact #2 : Ashton Kutcher Had Vasculitis Before COVID-19

On August 9, 2022, he clarified that he actually had vasculitis three years ago, in 2019 – before the COVID-19 pandemic, and over a year before the COVID-19 vaccines were approved.

So it is impossible for his vasculitis to be caused by the COVID-19 vaccines… unless they somehow developed a time machine…

Before there are a bunch of rumors/ chatter/ whatever out there. Yes, I had a rare vasculitis episode 3yrs ago. (Autoimmune flair up) I had some impairments hear, vision, balance issues right after. I fully recovered.

Fact #3 : Vasculitis Is A Rare Autoimmune Disorder

Ashton Kutcher did not reveal what kind of vasculitis he had, but they all cause inflammation of the blood vessels.

This inflammation causes the blood vessel walls to thicken and reduce the width of the vessels, reducing blood flow. If the amount of blood flow is reduced too much, it can result in organ and tissue damage.

Vasculitis is an autoimmune disease that can be triggered by infections, other autoimmune diseases, and certain medications. More importantly – vasculitis has long existed before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Fact #4 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Charlbi Dean’s Brother Reveals Her Cause Of Death!

Charlbi Dean Kriek’s brother just revealed her cause of death, and it’s not from COVID-19 vaccines!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Charlbi Dean’s Cause Of Death Was COVID-19 Vaccine!

Almost immediately after news broke that Charlbi Dean died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that the model and actress died from the COVID-19 vaccine. Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

Surely it was due to the Vaccine? Actress Charlbi Dean dies

Just read that Charlbi Dean is dead at 32 ‘sudden unexpected illness’. The number of young sudden deaths and ‘young people not waking up’ is extremely disturbing. I will never use this mRNA garbage and 90% of people are FN sheep. (is there a nice way to say that?) #Covid #Vaccine

Actress Charlbi Dean dies aged 32 after ‘sudden illness’
Just another young persons sudden death that`s been on the increase since the Vax rollout, but nothing to see here hey?

 

Charlbi Dean’s Brother Reveals Her Cause Of Death!

On 31 August 2022, Charlbi Dean’s brother – Alex Jacobs Kriek spoke out publicly against claims that his sister died from COVID-19 vaccines.

That is completely out of the question, from our point of view. That’s not the first bandwagon you need to jump on. I think that’s completely ridiculous and extremely naïve.

He shared that Charlbi Dean’s cause of death was a lung infection that may have been complicated by the loss of her spleen from an earlier accident.

According to Jacobs, Charlbi experienced some “minor” symptoms that concerned her enough that she asked her fiancé, Luke Chase Volker, to take her to the emergency room. She then died in a matter of hours – on the same day.

This happened literally within the span of a day: getting a headache, going to sleep, waking up her boyfriend and saying please take me to the hospital.

We still aren’t entirely sure (what happened). There’s an autopsy being done which we know might take quite a while. But what we have heard it that there was a viral infection in her lungs.

Read more : Did Charlbi Dean Kriek Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Alex explained that his sister was in a “very, very bad car accident” in 2009 that left her with a broken back and ribs. She eventually had to have her spleen removed, which may have contributed to her death in 2022.

They removed her spleen. It’s involved in fighting off infections, and that could have had something to do what happened. Her spleen not being there just added on to the reason whey she perhaps couldn’t fight it off.

An autopsy is being conducted on Charlbi Dean Kriek, to determine the exact cause of her death.

Charlbi Dean cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Did Charlbi Dean Kriek Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did model and actress Charlbi Dean Kriek die from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Charlbi Dean Kriek Died From Vaccine SADS!

Almost immediately after news broke that Charlbi Dean Kriek died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that the model and actress died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

Just another sad covid 19 vaccine death. I’m so sorry for her. She had her whole life to live.

🇫🇷🇿🇦 RIP Charlbi Dean –
Décède subitement d’une maladie inconnue et inattendue. Vaccin?

🇫🇷🇿🇦 RIP Charlbi Dean –
Dies suddenly of an unknown and unexpected illness. Vaccine?

The shocking, sudden death of actress Charlbi Dean, age 32
Most likely a covid Vaccination death. The Vaccine is more deadly than Covid was. These sudden deaths will be happening more frequently and downplayed by The World Health and Big Pharma, but the truth is obvious.

 

No Evidence Charlbi Dean Kriek Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Charlbi Dean Likely Died From A Lung Infection

Charlbi Dean Kriek – a 32-year old model and actress from South Africa – passed away on Monday, August 29, 2022, at a New York Ciry hospital.

Her representatives confirmed her death on Tuesday, saying that , Charlbi Dean had been unwell and was being treated for an “unexpected, sudden illness” when she passed away.

On Wednesday, August 31, 2022, her brother – Alex Jacobs Kriek explained to Rolling Stone that Charlbi Dean died from a lung infection that may have been complicated by the loss of her spleen from an earlier accident.

According to Jacobs, Charlbi experienced some “minor” symptoms that concerned her enough that she asked her fiancé, Luke Chase Volker, to take her to the emergency room. She then died in a matter of hours – on the same day.

This happened literally within the span of a day: getting a headache, going to sleep, waking up her boyfriend and saying please take me to the hospital.

We still aren’t entirely sure (what happened). There’s an autopsy being done which we know might take quite a while. But what we have heard it that there was a viral infection in her lungs.

Her boxing trainer, Gary Stark Jr, shared that she sparred with him just three days before she died. At that time, she appeared to be in good physical health.

However, on the day she died, she cancelled her boxing lesson at the last minute. This confirms what her brother said – she did not die suddenly, but suffered some kind of illness on the day she died.

Fact #2 : She Had Her Spleen Removed Earlier

Her brother, Alex Jacobs, also shared that his sister was in a “very, very bad car accident” in 2009 that left her with a broken back and ribs. She also had to have her spleen removed.

They removed her spleen. It’s involved in fighting off infections, and that could have had something to do what happened. Her spleen not being there just added on to the reason whey she perhaps couldn’t fight it off.

Read more : Charlbi Dean’s Brother Reveals Her Cause Of Death!

Fact #3 : Her Cause Of Death Is Being Determined By An Autopsy

According to her brother, an autopsy is being conducted on Charlbi Dean Kriek, to determine the exact cause of her death.

In other words, Charlbi Dean Kriek’s exact cause of death is currently unknown. It does not mean she died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects” or “vaccine-induced SADS”.

Fact #4 : Her Family Did Not Blame Vaccine For Her Death

There was no official statement from her father (Johan Kriek), her mother (Joanne Kriek), her brother (Alexi Jacobs Kriek) or her fiancé, South African model Luke Volker.

However, her mother posted a tribute on Instagram:

Our beautiful breath, will never breathe again. We love you forever and always 💝

And her brother Alexi Jacobs dedicated a poem he wrote earlier to her :

Charlbi Dean’s fiancé, Luke Chase Volker, posted a short video on Instagram, saying :

Hi, everyone. I wanted to just post a picture of Charlbi, but it’s a bit hard.

I just wanted to let you all know I see all your messages, all the love, and I appreciate it. I really do.

I just can’t really reply to them right now, but thank you guys. I appreciate it. I love you.

NO ONE – not her mother, brother or fiancé… not even the police or hospital mentioned vaccines as a possible cause.

So how did these anti-vaccination activists “know” she died from vaccine SADS? They didn’t. They just made it up.

Fact #5 : Her Brother Dismissed Antivax Claims

Charlbi Dean’s brother, Alex Jacobs, dismissed claims by anti-vaccination activists that she died from the COVID-10 vaccines.

That is completely out of the question, from our point of view.

That’s not the first bandwagon you need to jump on. I think that’s completely ridiculous and extremely naïve.

Fact #6 : Charlbi Dean Kriek Was Likely Vaccinated

While there is no direct evidence that Charlbi Dean Kriek was vaccinated against COVID-19, she was residing in New York City when she fell sick and passed away.

The United States currently requires non-residents to be fully-vaccinated to travel to the US. While it is possible to travel to the United States with a vaccine exemption, it is more than likely that Charlbi Dean was fully-vaccinated.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Charlbi Dean was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received all of her doses many months ago.

She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Read more : Do mRNA Vaccines Cause Invasion Of Killer Lymphocytes

Fact #8 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #9 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #10 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Did Sam Gannon Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon die suddenly from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Sam Gannon Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Within hours of news breaking that Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

Actor Sam Gannon 31, dies suddenly whilst staying with his family in America.

Another case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome I wonder? 🤔

31 years old. Fit and healthy actor. Dies suddenly. 🤔🤷🏼‍♂️🤔

Another vaccinated young man dies suddenly….

Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon dies suddenly at the age of 31

<dies suddenly klaxon>

Poor guy. When are you saps going to wake up?

 

No Evidence Sam Gannon Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Sam Gannon’s Death Is Being Investigated

Sam Gannon died on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, while visiting family in California.

The full circumstances surrounding Sam’s death are being investigated by the police, but they are not treating his death as suspicious.

In other words – Sam Gannon’s cause of death is currently unknown.

That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”. It means – no one knows why Sam Gannon died suddenly.

Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Sam Gannon died of this or that cause is lying to you.

Fact #2 : Sam Gannon Had A Congenital Heart Condition

Sam Gannon’s mother, Angela Gannon, said that he had a heart condition from birth which had “reared its ugly head” in recent months.

While his mother did not reveal what was his congenital heart condition, it seems likely that it may have a role in his death.

Fact #3 : His Family Never Blamed Vaccine For His Death

Sam Gannon’s family started a JustGiving page to raise money to bring his body back to the UK, in which they stated:

Due to the recent and sudden passing of Sam. All donations will be put towards the repatriation of his body from the US and his funeral.

He was a “real life Duracell bunny” with a seemingly endless supply of energy and love. A son, grandson, brother, uncle, partner and friend, he will be missed greatly by everyone who knew him.

We are putting the target as £17,000 as we do not yet know the actual cost.

Sam was a true performer, and any extra money raised will be donated to a UK charity supporting youth theatre, a cause close to Sam’s heart.

Amy, Sam’s sister, is also looking at setting up a foundation in Sam’s name to support people who find themselves in a similar position to him and need extra support.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

If his death was caused by COVID-19 vaccination, you can be sure that his family would have said something to that effect, but they notably did not do that.

So anyone who claims that Sam Gannon died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #4 : Sam Gannon Was Likely Fully-Vaccinated

While there is no direct evidence that Sam Gannon was vaccinated against COVID-19, he travelled to the United States to visit relatives in California.

The United States currently require non-residents to be fully-vaccinated to travel to the US. While it is possible to travel to the United States with a vaccine exemption, it is more than likely that Sam Gannon was fully-vaccinated.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Sam Gannon was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Malaysia Officially Bans Thor: Love and Thunder!

Malaysia just officially banned the release of Thor : Love and Thunder, likely over censorship requirements!

 

Earlier : Thor : Love and Thunder Postponed!

Thor : Love and Thunder was scheduled to be launched in Malaysia on July 7, in line with the global release (July 8 in the United States).

Cinemas had already opened up booking for the tickets, with many Malaysians purchasing them in advance.

However, on 1 July 2022 came the shocking announcementthe release date for Thor : Love and Thunder in Malaysia has been postponed for two weeks, to 21 July 2022!

Then, on 13 July 2022, Disney postponed the release of Thor : Love and Thunder in Malaysia indefinitely.

Read more : Why Thor: Love and Thunder Is Likely Banned In China!

 

Now : Thor : Love and Thunder Officially Cancelled

Unfortunately, on 28 July 2022, Disney announced that Thor : Love and Thunder would not be released in Malaysia.

This was announced by Malaysian cinema chain, GSC :

THOR: Love and Takde. Officially. ⚡️💔

Dear Valued Customers,

Please be informed that Disney has updated us that Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder will not be releasing in Malaysia after all.

We appreciate your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Please buy our merchandise ok.

We Malaysians all saw this coming, didn’t we?

 

Thor : Love and Thunder Faced Censorship Hurdles

It is currently unknown why the release date for Thor : Love and Thunder in Malaysia was banned from its cinematic release.

But Malaysians have long expected the film to be censored, especially the scene of Thor’s naked butt.  As director Taika Waititi shared, the movie will showcase Chris Hemsworth’s mighty cheeks in their full glory.

So it was possible that the earlier delay was to allow certain cuts or mosaicking to be made to the film to allay the delicate sensitivities of the Film Censorship Board of Malaysia. Unlike the brief LGBT kiss that got Lightyear banned in Malaysia and 14 other countries, it seems that Disney may be open to at least blurring Thor’s ass.

Read more : The Brief Kiss That Got Lightyear Banned In 14+ Countries!

There is also the “sensitive” issue of LGBTQ+ themes that have already gotten the movie banned in China. There are several short LGBTQ+ scenes in the movie.

But censoring them is likely a line too far for Disney / Marvel to cross.

  • Bisexual Asgardian King Valkyrie (Tessa Thomson) kisses a maiden’s hand
  • At two other scenes, characters reference and discuss King Valkyrie’s late girlfriend.
  • Korg (Taika Waititi) is shown to be gay.
  • Korg references having two dads.
  • Korg settles down with a fellow Korean named Dwayne.

It is likely that Malaysian film censors could not accept those short LGBTQ+ scenes either, and so Thor: Love and Thunder ended up banned from being shown in the cinemas, like in China.

James Caan Autopsy : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

The autopsy report for James Caan just confirmed that he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Vaccine Was Cause Of Death For James Caan Too!

Right after news broke that James Caan has died, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.

James Caan most likely died from the blood clots in his heart caused due to the Covid vaccine just like everybody else is dying with blood clots in wall heart in their sleep what the fuck is going on in this world does anybody still take it up the ass #FJB

Couldn’t possibly be related to the covid-19 vaccine side effect could it?

So sad another human had to die from the poison jab

James Caan, actor who played Sonny Corleone in ‘The Godfather,’ dies at 82

no doubt he ws vaxxed w covid-19 vax, de design is 2 kill off old white people 1st, and blacks, and so far it’s workng; Gen. Colin Powell, Marv. Marvin Hagler, DMX all dead

 

James Caan Autopsy : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

But yet again, they have been proven wrong, and we know this for a fact because we now have the autopsy report for James Caan!

Fact #1 : James Caan’s Autopsy Confirmed His Cause Of Death

On July 23, 2022, TMZ obtained the autopsy report for James Caan, which you can download yourself (pdf).

The autopsy report by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health states very clearly that James Cann died from a myocardial infarction (heart attack) brought upon by coronary heart disease.

The autopsy report also stated that James Caan was suffering from two chronic diseases that also contributed to his death – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure.

No other causes of death were found. Not myocarditis (the antivaxxer’s favourite bogeyman), not VITT, not even SADS.

Fact #2 : James Caan Died In A Hospital

The autopsy report also prove another anti-vaccination claim false – that James Caan died in his sleep from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

Anti-vaccination activists jumped onto his family’s statement that James Caan died in the evening, and “assumed” that he died in his sleep.

The autopsy report though clearly states that James Caan was at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center when he died at 9:02 PM on July 6, 2022.

So, no, James Caan did not die unexpectedly in his sleep at home from vaccine-induced SADS, which doesn’t even exist!

Fact #3 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #5 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

James Caan now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Did James Caan Die From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS?!

Did James Caan die at the age of 82 from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : James Caan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Here we go again – within hours of news breaking that James Caan has died, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

James Caan most likely died from the blood clots in his heart caused due to the Covid vaccine just like everybody else is dying with blood clots in wall heart in their sleep what the fuck is going on in this world does anybody still take it up the ass #FJB

Couldn’t possibly be related to the covid-19 vaccine side effect could it?

no doubt he ws vaxxed w covid-19 vax, de design is 2 kill off old white people 1st, and blacks, and so far it’s workng; Gen. Colin Powell, Marv. Marvin Hagler, DMX all dead

 

Truth : James Caan Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : James Caan Died Of A Heart Attack

An autopsy of James Caan revealed that he died from a myocardial infarction (heart attack) brought upon by coronary heart disease.

The autopsy report also stated that James Caan was suffering from two chronic diseases that also contributed to his death – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure.

That is definitive proof that James Caan’s death had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

He now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #2 : His Family Never Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

Just to be very clear – James Caan’s family never mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine as his cause of death.

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6.

The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.

If his death was caused by COVID-19 vaccination, you can be sure that his family would have said something to that effect.

Even his son, Scott – also an actor, did not post anything on social media, claiming that his father died from the vaccine.

So anyone who claims that James Caan died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

James Caan and his son, Scott Caan

Fact #3 : James Caan Was 82 Years Old

This is distasteful, but I have to point out that people do die of natural causes from old age.

The average life expectancy in the United States is 77.0 years, as of March 25, 2022. It is shorter for males – 75.1 years, compared to females, whose average life expectancy is 80.5 years.

James Edmund Caan was 82 years old when he died. A death of natural causes at his age is not unexpected – he lived at least 7 years longer than the average American male.

Fact #4 : Unknown If James Caan Was Vaccinated

I should point out that no one knows if James Caan was even vaccinated against COVID-19, although a few blogs have speculated on his vaccination status.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, there is no vaccine mandate in the United States.

Hence, James Caan may well be unvaccinated against COVID-19, unlike a certain prominent antivaxxer

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if James Caan was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Why Thor: Love and Thunder Is Likely Banned In China!

Here’s why Thor: Love and Thunder will likely remain banned in China forever and ever…

 

Thor: Love and Thunder Has Not Been Approved In China!

Film regulators in China do not explain or comment publicly why they refuse to approve any movie, but anyone with more two neurons in their brains will be able to connect the dots.

Just like how Lightyear got banned for a brief kiss between two female characters, it seems that Chinese censors have no love for LGBT themes in Thor: Love and Thunder.

This was confirmed by two The Hollywood Reporter sources in China who said that Thor: Love and Thunder will likely remain banned because of LGBTQ+ themes in the movie.

Sources at two major cinema chains in China tell The Hollywood Reporter that they expect Thor 4 will face the same fate as Pixar’s Lightyear: denied censorship approval because of fleeting moments in the movie involving LGBTQ characters.

Read more : The Brief Kiss That Got Lightyear Banned In 14+ Countries!

 

What LGTBQ+ Scenes In Thor: Love and Thunder Concern China?

Thor: Love and Thunder was already postponed in Malaysia, allegedly over Thor’s butt cheeks. Perhaps this is also an issue for Chinese censors, but they are more concerned about its LGBTQ+ scenes.

Just how many LGBTQ+ scenes are there really? And how controversial are these scenes?

  • Bisexual Asgardian King Valkyrie (Tessa Thomson) kisses a maiden’s hand
  • At two other scenes, characters reference and discuss King Valkyrie’s late girlfriend.
  • Korg (Taika Waititi) is shown to be gay.
  • Korg references having two dads.
  • Korg settles down with a fellow Korean named Dwayne.

Thor: Love and Thunder Is 6th MCU Movie To Be Banned In China

Thor: Love and Thunder will just join a rather long list of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies banned in China.

Black Widow : It was released in May 2021, during the Chinese summer movie season, when there is usually a blackout of foreign movies.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings : It was not approved in China, after 2017 comments by actor Simu Liu resurfaced, in which he called China a “third world” country.

Eternals : It was apparently not approved, after a 2013 interview with China-born director Chloé Zhao resurfaced, in which she said that “there are lies everywhere” in the country.

Spider-Man: No Way Home : Hilariously, Chinese censors wanted Sony to remove the Statue of Liberty from the movie. Perhaps they should have asked David Copperfield instead…

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness : It was not approved because of a scene in which a newspaper kiosk appeared with the Epoch Times visible.

Tyler Sanders Reportedly Died From Drug OD, Not Vaccine!

18 year-old Emmy-nominated actor Tyler Sanders reportedly died from a drug overdose, and not the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2022-07-09 : Added new info on his funeral, autopsy and cause of death.
Originally posted @ 2022-06-18

 

Claim : Tyler Sanders Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Mere hours after news broke that Tyler Sanders – who starred in Fear of the Walking Dead and 911 Lone Star – died, people started claiming that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Tyler Sanders dead at 18: 9-1-1 Lone Star actor dies. Seriously. You don’t need a Uni Degree or be a Doctor to 100% know that he died from the COVID Vaccine. Are you people really going to just accept “Suddenly Unknown Reason” as a Valid excuse. FFS.

The Vaccine kills another actor. Tyler Sanders dead at 18: ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ actor was an Emmy nominee

Yet another young life lost. There’s Sudden Adult Death Syndrome too. Young athletes popping off et al. What’s changed eh? Some would suspect #vaccines I suppose. 9-1-1: Lone Star’ actor Tyler Sanders dead at 18

Tyler Sanders Reportedly Died From Drug OD, Not Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Police Found Tyler Sanders Dead At Home

The Los Angeles police received a call on Thursday, 16 June 2022, to conduct a welfare check on Tyler Sanders, after his friends didn’t hear from him after a night out.

They found Tyler Sanders alone in his home, and pronounced him deceased. His agent, Pedro Tapia, confirmed his death in a statement on Friday, 17 June 2022 :

Tyler was a talented actor with a bright future. He comes from a wonderful family and we ask that you respect their privacy at this time.

Fact #2 : Autopsy Report On Tyler Sanders Still Not Released

The L.A. County’s Medical Examiner-Coroner stated that they completed his autopsy on Friday (17 June), and posted on their website that they had already released his body (to his family).

However, they deferred the report, pending additional investigations. Once the results of those tests / studies are in, Dr. Parks – the Deputy Medical Examiner in charge of his case, will make a final determination of his cause of death.

Until they reveal his cause of death, anyone who tells you that Tyler Sanders died of COVID-19 or the vaccine, is lying to you.

Fact #3 : Tyler Sanders’ Death Treated As Suspected Overdose

On July 5, sources connected to the investigation told TMZ that Tyler Sanders’ death was being “treated as a suspected [drug] overdose“.

Tyler Sanders reportedly had a history of drug use, and the LA police found a plastic straw and white powder in the room where his body was found.

Fact #4 : David Sanders Referred To An Apparent Drug Overdose

Someone who attended Tyler Sanders’ funeral in Houston told TMZ that his father, David Sanders, delivered an eulogy in which he told them that Tyler died of an apparent drug overdose.

Fact #5 : Tyler Sanders Was Apparently Battling Depression

Tyler Sanders allegedly started struggling with depression when he began filming “9-1-1”.

David Sanders also told those who attended his funeral “how Tyler’s brain was wired to where he could not feel happiness“.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Tyler Sanders Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Tyler Sanders was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Fact #7 : Tyler Sanders Looked Healthy + Well 3 Days Prior

Tyler Sanders was on vacation with his family in Vail, Colorado, just a few days before he died.

His last Instagram post was on June 13, which showed him looking real swank in his blue suit. He certainly looks fit and healthy.

Two days earlier, he posted this great shot of white water rafting with his family in Vail, Colorado.

These recent photos contradict claims that he was suffering from vaccine side effects.

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #9 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days

COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.

In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.

If Tyler received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for his death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received months earlier.

Read more : Did Pfizer Vaccine Documents Reveal 1,291 Side Effects?!

Fact #10 : Post-Vaccination Myocarditis Occurs Within Days

If Tyler Sanders was indeed vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna, it is true that he has a very small risk of developing post-vaccination myocarditis.

However, he would develop myocarditis within days of the vaccination, with symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, etc.

He would not be able to undertake strenuous activities like… going white water rafting with his family!

I should also point out that the risk of developing myocarditis from a COVID-19 infection is over a hundred times higher than developing myocarditis from three doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

So if you are really worried about myocarditis, you should definitely get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #11 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity death…
