I debated whether or not I wanted to cover this….
But ultimately it’s not my decision.
Matthew Perry’s vaccination status is relevant because HE made it relevant.
In case you haven’t heard, Matthew Perry (of Friends fame) was found dead today at age 54.
Initial reports said he died of drowning in a hot tub (no drugs or alcohol found), but later reports are questioning whether it was cardiac arrest.
Which leads to the relevant part — Perry proudly promoted and sold a “Could I BE Any More Vaccinated” shirt and urged his 7 million followers to get jabbed:

I really hate how this poison jab has divided our world.
I would love to go back to a time when funny people were allowed to just be funny.
Sadly, I didn’t make that change….
The world made that change.
People like Matthew Perry promoting this shirt and telling his followers to get jabbed made that change.
I hate it.
I’d love to go back to simpler times.
But people remember what he did and now they’re asking questions:
Matthew Perry has died at age 54. The call was for a suspected cardiac arrest. While anything is possible, many will point out that Matthew was a big supporter of the COVID vaccines and even sold shirts saying "Could I BE Any More Vaccinated?" so I think it’s fair to ask that it… pic.twitter.com/crBn1UAmec

NOTE: this is not my opinion, but I’m showing you what is trending on X:

Matthew Perry is dead after first responders, called it in as cardiac arrest. He was 54.
He was also fully vaccinated.

Note how they now say an “apparent drowning”:
Matthew Perry dead at 54 of an apparent drowning. First responders called out to the residence for heart attack. Fair to ask if he was vaccinated and boosted. https://t.co/Q6WpGAGvzt

Is it still a drowning if you had a cardiac arrest first?
No matter what the cause, it’s very sad.
Here was our prior report:

I saw Matthew Perry was trending tonight on Twitter and I had a very bad feeling.

The NY Post reports there were no drugs found or foul play suspected:
Matthew Perry has died at the age of 54, TMZ has reported.
The beloved “Friends” star was reportedly discovered dead in the jacuzzi of an L.A.-area home on Saturday afternoon.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that first-responders rushed to the address with the call first reported as a cardiac arrest.
They added that no drugs found at the scene and no foul play is suspected.
Perry rose to fame playing fan-favorite Chandler for 10 seasons on the immensely popular ’90s Sitcom “Friends.”
He had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, which he has been candid about since getting sober, opening up about his addictions in a memoir he published last year.
During a publicity tour for the tome last year, the star revealed that he almost died in 2018 due to a gastrointestinal perforation.
On a related note, I’ll never understand the debate about Seinfeld vs. Friends….
To me, that’s not even the question.
Friends may have been a feel good, comfort show, but it wasn’t “funny”.
The real debate is Seinfeld vs. Frasier.
Two brilliantly written masterpieces.
But “Smelly Cat”?
Sorry, I just never found it funny, even in the slightest.
Let me put it in basketball terms….
LeBron isn’t even in the Top 2 conversation.
It’s not LeBron vs. Mike, it’s KOBE vs. Mike.
In other words….
Michael Jordan = Seinfeld
Kobe Bryant = Frasier
LeBron = Friends
RIP Matthew Perry.
