Actor Woody Harrelson took a jab at people pushing the COVID-19 vaccine and lockdowns by comparing their actions to a drug cartel in his controversial "Saturday Night Live" monologue.

Harrelson said in his opening monologue Saturday that in November 2019, shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic, he received a film pitch with the "craziest script" he had ever read.

"So the movie goes like this," Harrelson said. "The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes. And people can only come out if they take the cartel's drugs and keep taking them over and over."

The actor then joked: "I threw the script away. I mean, who was going to believe that crazy idea? Being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day."

Harrelson's appearance on the show was well received by Twitter CEO Elon Musk who tweeted, "So based. Nice work," in response to a video of the monologue.

Rebel News correspondent Avi Yemini tweeted: "Woody Harrelson sums up the Covid scam perfectly."
