‘I have zero tolerance for pandemic deniers’: Model and crime author Tara Moss blasts Covid-19 conspiracy theorists like disgraced chef Pete Evans
Tara Moss has slammed Covid-19 deniers and conspiracy theorists like Pete Evans in a powerful Instagram post on Thursday.
Although the model and crime author did not mention the disgraced celebrity chef by name, she urged her fans not to pay attention people like him who spread false and ‘disrespectful’ claims about the pandemic on social media.
‘I have zero tolerance for pandemic deniers here. We are in the middle of a horrendous, deadly pandemic,’ Tara, 46, wrote on Instagram.

‘It is not the first pandemic humans have seen and it won’t be the last, sadly. If you want to spread conspiracy theories about Covid being a hoax, you are not welcome here. You will be blocked,’ she added.
‘1.97 million people have died of Covid so far. Denying this is insulting and disrespectful to those people and their grieving loved ones, and makes you part of the problem. That goes for politicians, too. Shame on you.’
Tara accompanied her post with a photo of herself wearing a face mask while pointing at graffiti on a railing that read ‘Covid hoax’.

‘Don’t be a Covid denier. Do the right thing by your loved ones and community and be safe, wear a mask and follow health mandates to help save lives,’ she concluded.
Evans, 47, is just one of a growing number of fading celebrities peddling dangerous and baseless Covid-19 conspiracy theories online.
The former My Kitchen Rules judge was fined $25,200 in April last year after he falsely claimed his $15,000 BioCharger lamp could cure coronavirus.

He’s since made several other baseless claims about the pandemic, which has so far led to more than 1.9 million deaths globally.
In July, he claimed that Covid-19 was a ‘f**king hoax’ and that the pandemic ‘doesn’t compare to what is happening in the world on a large scale’.
He has also encouraged people to ignore government safety measures, such as the order to wear masks in public in Victoria, and to challenge fines through the courts.
Evans has been banned from Facebook and Spotify for his extreme views.
