Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. presented controversial comments on the coronavirus pandemic and guidelines for wearing masks to prevent the spread of the disease on Tuesday.
Porter, who is expected to be one of the key players of the Nuggets during a restarted NBA program starting Thursday, said in an interview with Snapchat that the virus is used to “control” the population and that fear of the virus is “exaggerated” despite that 661,000 people have died worldwide.

“Personally, I think the coronavirus is obviously being used for a bigger agenda. It is used to control the population precisely in terms of the ability to control the masses of people. Because this virus is under the control of the whole world. You need to have masks and who knows what will happen when this vaccine comes out. You may need to have the vaccine to travel, it would be crazy. I’ve never been vaccinated in my life, I’ve never had any bullets or anything like that.
“It might go crazy, but it’s definitely the agenda of everything that’s going on right now, and all you can do is sit back and watch what’s going on and not get too emotionally involved.
“But it’s a serious thing, it’s a real thing, but yes, this is exaggerated.”
