Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has apparently supported the conspiracy theory that the coronavirus pandemic is nothing more than a myth to force vaccines to the public.
The crisis has had a huge impact worldwide, with official deaths worldwide exceeding 247,000 at the time of writing.
However, Lovren’s activity on social media suggests that he is not taking what’s going on at face value.
Dejan Lovren apparently supported conspiracy theories on the coronavirus pandemic
The Croat responded to a message from Bill Gates where the billionaire could be seen holding a sign saying “thank you, healthcare workers”.
Commenting below on the picture, Lovren wrote: “Game over Bill. People are not blind. ”
The 30-year-old then revealed that he was a fan of professional conspiracy theorist David Icke with several posts on his Instagram story.
It came after YouTube removed Icke’s official channel from its platform following his very controversial claims about the virus.

Lovren used his Instagram story to promote an interview with Icke on Sunday
The former footballer believes it is in fact broadcast over the 5G mobile phone network and that any vaccine to stop the spread of the virus will include “nanotechnology microchips” used to control people.
Lovren promoted an interview with Icke while sharing images with phrases such as “we will not be censored” and “we will not be silenced” and referring to himself as part of “resistance”.
The central defender then watched Icke discuss his theories with Brian Rose on Sunday before thanking the two men.

Lovren first mentioned his feelings about a vaccine last month when he expressed support for a post by Croatian MP Ivan Pernar.
Pernar had posted an anti-vaxxer meme from a cartoon image of Bill Gates holding a syringe and saying the words “Your body is my choice”.
It was accompanied by this legend: “There should always be freedom of choice and against compulsory vaccination. That’s why I’m a thorn in the eye of all mainstream media and their sponsors. “
Lovren commented on a “hands in prayer” emoji and Gary Lineker was quick to laugh at Lovren, tweeting, “Better to cancel all vaccine tests and trials immediately.”
