Zachary Levi, celebrated for his role in the "Shazam" films, recently vocalized his support for Robert F Kennedy Jr., describing him as "the best we’ve had in a long time" on his social media platform. Kennedy, a contentious figure known for his environmental advocacy and anti-vaccine views, is currently an independent candidate in the upcoming U.S.

presidential election. Levi, whose acting repertoire includes the TV series "Chuck" and roles in the "Thor" movies, encouraged his followers to watch a 30-minute video portraying Kennedy positively. “Hey y’all. I know a lot of you already have strong opinions about all the presidential candidates, but if you haven’t already seen this video about RFK Jr, I’d highly recommend giving it a look,” he tweeted.

“No candidate is perfect, but this man is the best we’ve had in a long time”.

RFK Jr.' s Controversial Stance

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., nephew to President John F. Kennedy, has been a polarizing figure. He is especially noted for founding the Children's Health Defense, the largest anti-vaccine organization in America.

He has sparked controversy with his claims regarding the COVID-19 vaccine and his assertion that COVID-19 might have originated from a lab, suggesting it was a "bioweapons problem." Further controversy surrounds Levi himself, who last year responded to a tweet from Lyndon Wood, a self-described “conspiracy theorist,” questioning the safety implications of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer.

Wood asked, “Do you agree or not, that Pfizer is a real danger to the world?” To which Levi responded, “Hardcore agree,” a statement that has since stirred public concern and debate. This endorsement comes at a crucial time as Kennedy seeks to carve out a space for himself in a highly competitive presidential race, leveraging his notable family legacy and stance on controversial issues.

Levi’s endorsement highlights a significant intersection of celebrity influence and political advocacy, reflecting the complex dynamics at play as public figures navigate their platforms and the impact of their voices on political discourse.
