Even though we might not be big on Halloween in South Africa, those over in North America are having what many would call an unconventional Halloween celebration. And while you’ll usually see lawns and houses decorated with spooky displays on social media, this year, the message is somewhat different.
Some homeowners have used this occasion to take a jab at those who are unvaccinated with fake skeletons and gravestones at the forefront, while the messages are aimed at mocking the decision not to get jabbed.
This was seen after Linda Mcafee took to TikTok to share a video that showcases tombstones declaring statements such as “Government Conspiracy” and “I refuse to live afraid,” right next to the skeletons. The video has raked in more than 3 million views and the likes are abundant.
‘Meanwhile in Canada’ shared a similar post with statements like “I did my own research” making a bold appearance, accompanied by the disturbing visual of a skull.

And social media has responded accordingly.
@TeslasDisciple said “Anti-vaxxers drive me nuts but this is not appropriate. There’s a lot of grieving families out there” while @LJrrtt said “I trust my college education more than your shoddy Halloween decor, thanks”.
