Piers Morgan praises Australia’s decision to deport Novak Djokovic, saying, “Same rules as everyone.”
PIERS MORGAN has reacted to the news that Novak Djokovic has been denied entry to Australia due to visa application issues.
Piers Morgan, 56, has weighed in on the matter following reports that Novak Djokovic was ordered to leave the country due to a lack of evidence for a Covid vaccine exemption.
While the Serbian has not confirmed his vaccination status, his medical exemption was thought to be sufficient to allow him entry into Australia.
It isn’t about whether you believe in covid vaccines in the (hashtag)Djokovic saga.
Piers Morgan is a British journalist.
That is, until Novak arrived at border control and discovered that his team had filed the incorrect paperwork, and that, despite his request for a sub-class of visa, the entry permit did not apply to those arriving with a medical reason related to the Covid-19 vaccine.
The 34-year-old’s place in the Australia Open, which begins on January 17, is in jeopardy as he prepares to leave the country, with no word on whether he will be vaccinated in time for the tournament.
Piers has since expressed his displeasure on Twitter, telling his 7.9 million followers that Novak should be subjected to the same rules as everyone else.
The journalist tweeted, “The (hashtag)Djokovic saga is not about whether you believe in covid vaccines, but whether you believe famous athletes should play by the same rules as everyone else.”
The (hashtag)Djokovic saga isn’t about whether or not you believe in covid vaccines; it’s about whether or not you believe famous athletes should follow the same rules as the rest of us.
He has the right not to be stabbed, and Australia has the right to deport him for filing a fraudulent visa application.
“He has the right not to be stabbed, and Australia has the right to deport him for filing a false visa application.”
Regardless of his feelings about the situation, Piers’ fans had mixed reactions to Novak’s border crossing ordeal, with one person emphasizing that the athlete was in Australia for work, not for fun.
“Refusing someone’s right to work because they aren’t vaccinated is questionable,” @Adsterb said in the comments section.
“It doesn’t matter what one’s status is.”
“Ridiculous outcry to be,” wrote @OhRemi_, another follower.
“News from the Brinkwire.”
The #Djokovic saga is not about whether you believe in covid vaccines
The #Djokovic saga is not about whether you believe in covid vaccines, but whether you believe famous sports stars should play by the same rules as everyone else. He has the right not to be jabbed, and Australia has the right to chuck him out for making a dodgy visa application.
