WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Ricky Schroder, who recently made headlines for berating Costco employees over mask policies, protested outside a Foo Fighter’s show.
- The ’80s actor is accusing Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl of discrimination.
- Only fully vaccinated people were allowed to see the concert.
Actor Ricky Schroder, who recently made headlines for badgering Costco employees about mask policies, and bailing Kyle Rittenhouse out of jail, is again making headlines, this time for joining a protest outside a Foo Fighters show.
The band recently gave a small live performance to a fully vaccinated crowd in Agoura Hills, a Los Angeles suburb. Schroder was spotted outside the venue with a group of anti-vaccine protesters.
A couple of days before the show, Schroder shared a meme on Facebook that depicted Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, with a giant syringe, and a shirt with the words “Pharma Sellout” printed on it.
The text on the photo read: “There goes my hero/ watch him as he goes/ there goes my hero. Heroes don’t segregate or discriminate” – the lyrics to one of the band’s most famous songs.
Schroder mentioned Kurt Cobain, Grohl’s deceased friend, and former Nirvana co-founder, to mock Grohl’s views on COVID vaccines.
“Dave Grohl is an ignorant punk who needs slapped for supporting Discrimination. Ignorance comes in all shapes & sizes. Kurt Cobain is laughing at you Dave along with Millions of Patriots….Fool,” he wrote.
Ricky Schroder seems to be accusing Grohl and the band of discrimination for allowing only vaccinated people in the show.
Some of the band’s fans were upset at Schroder and his fellow anti-vaxxers outside the Canyon Club and argued they were just trying to have a safe time out at their first live show since the pandemic happened last year.
But the band has already moved on and is preparing for their full-capacity live show at the re-opening of Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 20. It’ll be Foo Fighters’ first full-capacity live show in New York City since March 2020.
In a statement, Grohl said the band has been waiting for this day for over a year. “And Madison Square Garden is going to feel that hard. New York, get ready for a long ass night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos,” said Grohl.
