Indie wrestling journeyman Low-Ki took to social media today with a message about ignorance and the ongoing global pandemic. In it, he says that he respects people’s right to “remain ignorant’ and be “ruled by fear” amidst the pandemic. He “respects his health enough” that he shouldn’t be barred from shaking hands and embracing other people. In addition, he says that people have “zero right” to tell him to wear a mask, take a vaccine, or social distance. He ends by saying that “ignorance is a choice” and that he “chooses not to be ignorant.”

The entire statement mirrors conspiracy theories that place the blame for the current crisis on some unseen powerful entity trying to control the populace for one reason or another. Low-Ki has furthered this with additional tweets saying that “information has been clouded purposefully” to divide the general public.

Several of his peers from across the wrestling landscape have responded to the tweet, which caused Low-Ki’s name to trend across Twitter in the United States. They almost universally deride his statement and stress the importance of keeping your fellow man safe from infection.
