Fox News anchor receives death threats for recommending the coronavirus vaccine

Last week, Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto, host of Your World with Neil Cavuto, announced he tested positive for a breakthrough case of the coronavirus. In a MediaBuzz interview on Sunday, he urged viewers to get vaccinated regardless of the politicization around vaccine mandates.

Cavuto is immunocompromised after facing multiple health challenges over the years, including stage 4 cancer, open-heart surgery, multiple sclerosis, and, now, COVID-19.

“This is not about left or right, this is not about who’s conservative or liberal; last time I checked, everyone regardless of their political persuasion is coming down with this,” Cavuto said during Sunday’s interview. “Take the political speaking points and toss them for now, I’m begging you. Toss them and think of what’s good, not only for yourself but for those around you.”

Cavuto said that his urging would get him “in trouble” and that he would likely receive unkind viewer emails in response. His guess was correct as he read some of those emails on his show Tuesday.

“It’s clear you’ve lost some weight with all this stuff. Good for you,” wrote one viewer. “But I’m not happy with less of you. I want ‘none’ of you. I want you gone. Dead. Caput. Fini. Get it? Now, take your two-bit advice, deep-six it and you!”

“I admire your remarkable strength through so much adversity, but let me give you some advice,” another wrote. “Shut up and enjoy the fact you’re not dead. For now.”
