Hollywood star John Cusack has joined a list of celebrity conspiracy theorists who have taken issue against 5G technology.
He posted on Twitter last night that he believes 5G would be harmful for humans after several high-profile people linked it with coronavirus.
However, the rumours have been roundly criticised for being ‘dangerous nonsense’.
On the matter of 5G, Public Health England states that ‘the overall exposure is expected to remain low relative to guidelines and, as such, there should be no consequences for public health.’ The new coronavirus is also spreading in places without 5G networks, including in Iran.
Cusack, who has no scientific qualifications, wrote: ‘5 – G wil be proven to be very very bad for people’s health – (sic)’
Many people reacted with disappointment to his tweet, as he added: ‘Twittaverse many of you are thoughtful decent humans. Beyond the bots and trolls – many of you are just DUMB – just consumerist ignorant trash (sic)’.
After some more followers lashed out over his claims and retweets about the matter, John wrote: ‘Very instructive. Suggest a new broadly used tech – may be harmful – hysteria ! Um asbestos ? Anyone – nuclear power – Fracking ? Your acting like f***ing Sheep – It’s basic – not conspiracy – (sic)’.
Just last year, John landed in hot water over a tweet and was forced to issue an apology for sharing an anti-Semitic image.
The Say Anything actor was instantly called out after he shared a picture depicting a giant hand bearing a Star of David crushing a crowd of people.
The picture featured a quote from Voltaire reading: ‘To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.’
John posted the picture with the caption ‘Follow the money’.
The star claimed he had ‘mistakenly retweeted an alt-right account’ after believing the image was a protest against Israel.
