Comedian Celeste Barber has been applauded by fans for her brutal response to an anti-vaxxer online who called her a ‘fat slob’.

The 39-year-old, who rose to fame on Instagram, was being criticised for encouraging her followers on social media to get vaccinated.

Celeste recently shared a video in her signature style of recreating celebrity posts; this time with the intent to mock Australia’s rollout of the Covid vaccine in relation to the rest of the world.

The video shows Celeste hilariously failing to copy an influencer who kicks a skateboard to flip a can of beer into her hand, which she then pierces with the heel of her shoe and drinks from.


She followed up the post by sharing a photo of herself getting vaccinated, writing: “Get it if you can and let’s kick this in the d**k!”

Both of her posts have been praised by many famous stars, including Naomi Watts, Lisa Wilkinson and Selma Blair. However, one user on TikTok was less than impressed with Celeste’s pro-vaccination stance.

The unknown woman shared a video rant attacking the Aussie personality, but it’s the mispronunciation of Celeste’s name that has gone viral.

“You tell me why a fat slob like Celestie Barber should be able to post on their Instagram and encourage other people to get the shot when people are dying and people are being maimed by these things?” she yelled.

In her signature dry humour, Celeste quipped: “It’s Celeste, you f**king idiot.”

Fans were quick to commend the way the funny woman responded, with many saying it was the “perfect comeback”.

Celeste posted a follow-up video the next day to speak directly to anti-vaxxers and make fun of their beliefs.

“I just want you to know that when I got my first Pfizer shot about a week ago, the nurse who gave it to me, she actually shows you the 5G before she puts it in the vial which I think is really good. I don’t think that many people know that,” she said sarcastically.

“It blew my mind at how small Bill Gates’ DNA is that it also fits in the vial as well with the 5G.”

Followers joined in on the fun and shared their own humorous discoveries about the vaccine.

“I love the fact when I walk through my house, everything magnetic just sticks to me,” someone joked.

“I talk into my upper right arm to add products to my Amazon list,” another added.
