Switzerland will vote on the Covid Act on November 28th. The initiators of the referendum against the law include well-known figures such as comedian Marco Rima (60) and SVP National Councilor Yvette Estermann (54). Marco Rima can even be quoted on the website of the No Committee: “Those who stand up for what is good every day, look after their health and treat their neighbors with decency and compassion, protect themselves and others better than any tightening of Covid.”
However, one person does not agree with this statement at all: Viktor Giacobbo (69). The cabaret artist welcomes the obligation to have a certificate, as he already revealed at the “NZZ am Bellevue” opening in September. “Anyone who does not get vaccinated is ignorant and does not make the necessary contribution to overcoming this damn pandemic,” Giacobbo told Blick at the time.
“Radical opponents of measures threaten the authorities”
Giacobbo can only laugh about Marco Rima’s statement against the Covid law. “Well, dear Marco, do you mean the respect, compassion and decency of the radical opponents of measures who are currently threatening Covid law proponents or doctors and members of the authorities?”, The 69-year-old writes on Twitter.
Measures skeptic Marco Rima (60) has not yet commented on Giacobbo’s taunts. The 60-year-old is currently on a professional break. In August he announced: “After careful consideration, I decided to put my stage career as a cabaret artist on hold.” Rima will not reappear until the restrictions such as masks, tests and certificates are lifted.
Comedians are divided
It is not the first time that the vaccination has split the Swiss comedian scene. Peach Weber (69) even launched a vaccine song last March. In September, a tweet from him made waves because he described corona skeptics as hollow heads.
On the contrary, Instagram comedian Gabirano (22) expressed himself with conspiracy theories on social media last May. The successful influencer became even vulgar: “How often do you want to suck the tail of Berset and the BAG? Fuck them. “
Satirist Patrick Frey (72) meanwhile struggles to understand the opponents of the measure. He was stunned via a live stream of the anti-corona demo on Blick TV in September: “I can’t believe it! Now colleague Rob Spence (53) has also defected to the free-breathing conspiracy mythologists! ” He is already the fourth comedian after Andreas Thiel (50), Marco Rima (60) and Gabirano. “I’m getting queasy. Who will be next? ”Frey wrote on Twitter at the time. (zel)
