Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito has strong words for unvaccinated people: ‘Go to a small island and sequester yourself’

  • Esposito spoke about the entertainment industry’s efforts to deal with unvaccinated performers 
  • He said of vaccinations, ‘We all have to do it if we want to live’ 
  • The Better Call Saul star said he ‘understand how people don’t vaccinate’ 


Giancarlo Esposito expressed his strong take against people remaining unvaccinated on Wednesday.

‘If you don’t want to vaccinate, go to a small island and sequester yourself,’ the 63-year-old actor told The Hollywood Reporter in a feature about efforts in the entertainment industry to deal with unvaccinated performers.

‘We all have to do it if we want to live,’ Esposito told the outlet, noting that the message he feels it sends to stay unvaccinated: ‘You’re saying “F*** you” to all you other human beings.’

The latest: Giancarlo Esposito, 63, expressed his strong take against people remaining unvaccinated on Wednesday, as he said he doesn’t ‘understand how people don’t vaccinate’ more than a year and a half into the ongoing pandemic. He was snapped last month in LA 

Esposito, who has played drug lord Gus Fring on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, said he doesn’t ‘understand how people don’t vaccinate’ more than a year-and-a-half into the ongoing pandemic.

‘For me, I’ve lost dear friends, so I know it’s real,’ the actor told the publication. ‘Not only in Europe but in America, friends who were completely healthy and uncompromised. The vaccine is the answer.’

Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon on The Mandalorian, clarified that he didn’t want to put down ‘anyone who doesn’t want to vaccinate,’ but rather wants them to quarantine themselves until the pandemic is under full control.

‘Don’t work,’ he said. ‘Go ride it out somewhere where you’re not going to compromise anyone else if you get it.’

Esposito’s sentiments came in the report which detailed how Paramount Plus was down $6 million after actor Miles Teller, who is unvaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19 during the filming of the limited series The Offer, leading production to shut down July 28, as first reported by DailyMail.com. 

‘Miles Teller is not vaccinated. He wouldn’t even get the test,’ a source told DailyMail.com. ‘Now he’s brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down.’ 

The production was shut down three weeks as result of Teller’s absence, as TV and film productions do not have set universal vaccine mandates.

The issue has been a divisive one in Hollywood circles, as stars such as Letitia Wright and Rob Schneider have expressed anti-vaccine views on their social media accounts, while Sean Penn departed from the set of Gaslit this past summer, demanding all people involved in the making of the limited series get vaccinated.

George Clooney also spoke to the outlet for the piece, placing the vaccinations against other historical challenges Americans have faced.

‘It’s stupid because every generation in our country for more than a lifetime has been asked to sacrifice something for the safety of their fellow man – get shot, fight Nazis,’ Clooney said. 

He continued: ‘All that anyone’s being asked here is to get a shot in the arm and put on a mask. Grow up. Get something done.’
