Academy Award winning actor Woody Harrelson is facing backlash for apparently endorsing Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Despite being a registered Democrat, he’s been labeled as a conspiracy theorist for sharing his controversial views on the campaign trail.
Kennedy is a fierce critic of childhood vaccines, which he believes are responsible for causing autism.
His stance that the shots are more harmful to humans than the diseases they were created to protect them from, parlayed into vocal outrage over COVID-19 vaccine mandates and pandemic protocols.

In his 2022 book, he accused the nation’s former top COVID doc, Anthony Fauci, of “help[ing] orchestrate and execute 2020’s historic coup d’etat against Western democracy.”
Kennedy has also enraged liberals with theories that chemicals in water supplies cause children to question their gender identity, and anti-depressants create school shooters.
He also alleged that Wi-Fi is cancer causing and has repeatedly insisted that HIV may not actually cause AIDS.
Harrelson, who ruffled liberal feathers with an Saturday Night Live appearance that compared big pharma to drug cartels, appears to be a fan of Kennedy’s rhetoric.
A recent Instagram post by Kennedy’s wife, Curb Your Enthusiasm actress Cheryl Hines, featured a picture of Harrelson wearing a Kennedy 2024 baseball cap at a campaign event.
The caption read: “Great seeing you Woody,” and included three white heart emojis and an RFK Jr hashtag.
The post received significant attention, with over 15,000 likes and 1,000 comments within a short period.
It went viral after senior Shark Tank producer Andrew Kimmel commented that Democrats had “lost Woody.”
“My enthusiasm is curbed,” someone quipped in reference to Hines’ role on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Many social media users referenced Harrelson’s SNL appearance in February, where he criticized the COVID-19 vaccine and government pandemic protocols during the cold open.

Harrelson told a story about the “craziest” script he read in 2019 as part of his monologue.
“So the movie goes like this,” he began. “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.”
The actor said that he threw the unrealistic script away after reading it.
“I mean, who was going to believe that crazy idea?” he joked. “Being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day.”
It wasn’t the first time Harrelson spoke out against Big Pharma and Government.
“Most Americans would not normally trust the government with helping them, you know. Like what does the government actually do to help you?” The Zombieland star told Bill Maher last fall.
“They help the big corporations industry, all the people that got you know, got those people in the Congress or to become president. Those people all got to get taken care of.”
