Actor Tim Robbins came out in support of Woody Harrelson on Thursday after the Champions actor stated in an interview with the New York Times that the Covid-19 protocols currently dominating the entertainment industry should come to an end.
In an interview with the Times, Harrelson voiced his beliefs about the role of covid-19 within his own industry, lambasting the coronavirus protocols that have made indie movie projects nearly impossible.
“Now to get an indie done? Especially with all the Covid protocols — which, to me, are rather absurd,” he said. “I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
When asked why the protocols were absurd, Harrelson blasted the industry for continuing them after three years, as previously reported by the DC Enquirer.
“The fact that they’re still going on!” Harrelson boomed. “I don’t think that anybody should have the right to demand that you’re forced to do the testing, forced to wear the mask, and forced to get vaccinated three years on.”
“I’m just like, Let’s be done with this nonsense. It’s not fair to the crews. I don’t have to wear the mask. Why should they?” he asked. “Why should they have to be vaccinated? How’s that not up to the individual? I shouldn’t be talking about this [expletive].”

“It makes me angry for the crew. The anarchist part of me, I don’t feel that we should have forced testing, forced masking, and forced vaccination,” he explained, adding, “That’s not a free country. Really I’m talking about the crew. Because I can get out of wearing a mask. I can test less. I’m not in the same position they’re in, but it’s wrong. It’s been three years. Stop.”
In response to Harrelson's bold stance, Shawshank Redemption actor Tim Robbins came out in support of Harrelson, tweeting, “Woody is right. Time to end this charade.”

Harrelson gained national attention last week due to a monologue on ‘Saturday Night Live' where he criticized how all of society listened to and supported Big Pharma by embracing vaccine mandates, as reported by Breitbart.
“Okay, so the movie goes like this. The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes and people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over,” Harrelson said. “I threw the script away.”
“I mean who’s going to believe that crazy idea! Being forced to do drugs?” He joked, adding, “I do that voluntarily all day long.”
