During the pandemic, numerous rules, guidelines, and restrictions popped up all over the country. Critics said many of them trampled on citizen rights, and some resisted the draconian moves.
One of those people was country western star John Rich, who has been fighting a pandemic-related lawsuit for some time.
Now, the decision on the case is in — and Rich is celebrating.
Rich was battling a concert promoter, who sued the country singer for canceling a show. Rich canceled the concert because the venue was forcing attendees to show proof of vaccination.
The country star has never believed in requiring a “passport” of sorts to prove they’ve been vaccinated, and he fought the suit.
Now, the case is over and Rich is victorious. And as he posted on his Twitter feed:
The 49-year-old singer told his fans that he was sticking to his guns throughout, and many congratulated Rich for “standing up to tyranny.”
Many of his supporters agree that no authority should be able to force them to provide personal medical information. They also believe they shouldn’t be forced to take a drug they don’t wish to have.
A few of the replies were as follows:
Not everyone was on board, though, as a few said they wouldn’t be going to any more of Rich’s concerts.
One said it “sounds like a great place to catch COVID.” However, critics will point to studies that show the vaccine does not prevent you from catching or spreading the disease, a hotly debated point of contention.
The conservative country western star has often stood up to over-the-top pandemic mandates and lockdowns, and has frequently called out Dr. Anthony Fauci as well.
When Fauci announced he was retiring, Rich posted:
There are hundreds of ongoing pandemic-era lawsuits still going on today, as thousands of people across the nation continue to protest the authoritarian-style way the government dealt with COVID.
Many still worry that if another health issue pops up in the future, they’ll just do it again — and it might be even more tyrannical the next time around.
