Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloglu posted a strange video on her Instagram story about the Covid vaccine last night, and then deleted it 10-minutes later. In the clip, she was talking to the camera and said she regretted having the vaccine because of the side effects she suffered from.
Ekin, who recently holidayed in Turkey with Davide to confirm they’re back together, posted the clip in which she said she believed it should have “been a choice” whether people got vaccinated or not, and listed off some of the effects she believes people can get.
In the video, which has been seen by The Tab, Ekin-Su referred to the “jabs we all had when Covid came out” speaking about the pandemic like a Netflix show drop. She said getting it was her “biggest regret” because of the side effects. “We were all rushing to get them [the jabs],” she said. “They were like ‘you know what you’re not allowed to come into our country unless you have the Covid jab’. Even including myself, we all got rushed into having these Covid vaccinations.
“Biggest regret. Biggest regret, I mean the amount of side effects I’m hearing from these jabs. Even myself like my whole body aches, my bones ache and it’s the weirdest sensation ever. I keep reading people having side effects.” Ekin then speculated that “some people lose their vision, some people don’t walk the same and some people have been hospitalised.”
She added: “It’s scary and it’s such a shame we were so pressured into getting these jabs, but we shouldn’t have been. It should have been a choice. So yeah, let’s see what happens in many years to come.” The video was deleted from her story just 10 minutes after it was posted.
As stated by the World Health Organisation: “All vaccines approved by stringent regulatory agencies (SRAs) or with WHO Emergency Use Listing (EUL) are safe and effective at reducing the risk of severe disease and death due to COVID-19 infection. Please remember that the benefits of COVID-19 vaccinations outweigh the risks of getting severely ill with COVID-19.” In the UK, it is not mandatory for people to be vaccinated.
The Tab has reached out to Ekin-Su’s management for comment.
