Actor Canceled For Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine: Clifton Duncan vs. Pandemic Mandates – Ask Dr. Drew
Clifton Duncan is an award-winning actor & self-described “pot-smoking, pro-choice atheist” who says his burgeoning acting career was cancelled when he refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19 – including the loss of his manager and the prospect of a five-figure weekly salary.
“I refuse to allow any employer or, by extension, the government to act as my health care provider and to dictate what I inject into my body,” Clifton says. “I refused to be bullied or coerced or shamed into taking a medical product I neither want or need.”
Clifton Duncan graduated with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from New York University’s Graduate Acting Program and appeared in critically-acclaimed productions on and off-Broadway. His TV slate includes work for NBC, Fox, CBS and Starz. Follow him at twitter.com/cliftonaduncan and listen to the Clifton Duncan Podcast.
