Miles Teller announced late Monday that he has been vaccinated against COVID-19 after Taylor Swift fans were worried about his appearance in her music video “I Bet You Think About Me”.
The “Spectacular Now” star, who tested positive for the new coronavirus over the summer after refusing to be vaccinated, also clarified via Twitter that he is not anti-wax.
“Hi guys, I usually do not need to address rumors here, but I have been vaccinated and have been for a while,” he wrote. “The only thing I’m against is hatred.”
Teller’s tweet came after fans questioned whether Swift, 31, was aware of the 34-year-old actor’s controversy over the summer when he forced the production of “The Godfather” -inspired series “The Offer” to close down because of his refusal to be vaccinated.
Miles Teller has not been vaccinated. He would not even get the test, “a source told the Daily Mail at the time. “Now he has brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down.”
A representative of the “Whiplash” star told the newspaper: “Your facts are wrong” at the time, but refused to explain further.
The Hollywood Reporter referred to the production shutdown in a story published weeks later, but it avoided naming Teller as the person who tested positive.
“The positive person was publicly identified as a series star who is said to be unvaccinated,” the article said. “Sources tell THR that the shutdown resulted in a $ 6 million loss for the limited-edition series ‘The Godfather.’
Teller’s tweet on Monday did not stop fans from coming out to defend and criticize both Swift and her music video star.
“The fact that some of you think Taylor would hire an unvaccinated person to join her video LMAO,” one fan tweeted.
“Translation: ‘Taylor Swift’s PR did not like how my unvaccinated status has gained ground since the release of her music video, which I’m part of, so now I’m forced to clarify so as not to attract any bad pressure on her way, “tweeted another.
