Sam Frost has spoken out after receiving widespread criticism in October for her reluctance to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph’s Stellar magazine, the actress, who left Home and Away in December but is now believed to be fully vaccinated, spoke about the ‘disgusting bullying’ that the unvaccinated have faced.
When she linked limitations on the unvaccinated to’segregation’ in her sad Instagram video in October, the 32-year-old lamented on being ‘torn to f***ing pieces,’ and declared that she’s ‘in no way an anti-vaxxer.’
The bullying of unvaccinated people was disgusting. Friends I’d had for years stopped talking to me, Sam explained to Stellar.
‘I never said I didn’t want to get it. I’m not an anti-vaxxer – are you kidding me? But I feel it’s quite unreasonable to assume that everyone’s going to think exactly the same way and that people are going to come to the exact same conclusion in the same time frame.’
In addition, the former Bachelorette stated that she merely had ‘good intentions.’
‘I got torn to f***ing pieces. That was someone in a very vulnerable position talking about their struggles with mental health,’ she explained.
Sam, who debuted as Jasmine Delaney on Channel Seven’s Home and Away in 2017, left the show in December, two months after disclosing she hadn’t received the vaccine.
Seven Productions has a policy requiring all actors and crew to be Covid-vaccinated; nevertheless, sources claim Sam’s departure last year had nothing to do with the mandate.
