An anti-vaxxer has been mocked online after taking offence at a joke on comedy party game Cards Against Humanity and trying to launch a boycott.
The taboo-busting game, which brands itself on being 'the party game for horrible people', sees players complete statements using risque words or phrases printed on playing cards.
But in a post on Facebook, an anti-vaxxer took offence to a card that read: "Not vaccinating my children because I am stupid.”
In a screenshot of the rant, posted on Reddit, the unnamed social media user moaned: “Is this real?
“I thought we were gaining traction on educating the safety and efficacy of vaccines.
“Is Cards Against Humanity Pharma paid or am I missing the point of a good diss?
“This seems beyond in-compassionate, especially for those with vax-injured children and family.”
The post ended with the hashtag calling for a boycott of Cards Against Humanity.
But Reddit users were quick to mock the poster.
One wag quipped: “How dare this game built on offensive humour offend me!”
Another joked: “Am I so out of touch?!’ No… it’s the humorous card game that is wrong…”
The poster was blasted by on response that read: “You could just stop being a blithering moron and vaccinate your kids.”
Another user added: “Anyone who gets their panties in a twist over a CAH card is not someone I need to waste time with, so I must thank the makers of the game for this convenient litmus test.”
The UK government announced this week that everyone over the age of 18 would be offered a booster jab to help combat the spread of the Omicron variant.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation ruled boosters should be given three months after people have had their second vaccine jabs, shaving three months off the current six-month wait.
Cards Against Humanity is no stranger to controversy. In 2017, the company bought land on the US-Mexican border in a bid to stop Donald Trump’s attempts to build a wall.
The stunt saw 150,000 people pay $15 towards the wall-blocking project in exchange for surprise gift packages.
The firm said at the time they were hoping to save America, adding: "Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans.”
And it has been criticised for its use of child abuse and rape on its cards.
