Fauci says he and his family continue to receive death threats amid statements made by critics like Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose new book—“The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health”—is filled with alarming claims.
“It’s very unfortunate because I don’t think he is inherently malicious,” Fauci said of Kennedy on Tuesday (Dec. 21). “I just think he’s a very disturbed individual.”
“It’s a shame because he comes from such an extraordinarily distinguished family, many members of whom I know personally,” Fauci continued. “I was very close to Sen. Ted Kennedy, who was such an extraordinary person and a real warrior for public health and to have RFK Jr. just spouting things that make absolutely no sense … I’m so sorry that he’s doing that.”
“Not just because he’s attacking me—that seems to be the rage among some people—but because ultimately it is going to hurt people,” he added.
Fauci told Yahoo News that he often receives death threats.
“It even gets accelerated when you have the inflammatory statements that are made, [by] people like RFK Jr. and some of the Fox media personalities,” he said, adding that he finds it “strange that they go unchecked with no consequences for people to say that.”
“And when they do that publicly, that’s when I get more death threats and people harass me, my wife and my children.”
