“Can we go ahead and let him play?” Seth Dillon DEMANDS Novak Djokovic be allowed to play the US Open after the government deemed unvaccinated people as ‘not’ evil and dangerous

Seth Dillon comes out to support Novak Djokovic once again after a slight change in the vaccine mandate by the US government.

Due to the requirement for vaccinations this season, Novak Djokovic‘s life hasn’t been simple. He was turned away from admission into Australia and, following a 10-day legal battle, was expelled from the nation; as a result, he was unable to compete in the Australian Open. He was forced to postpone the start of his season and was also prohibited from participating in the Golden Swing.

He enjoyed a respectable clay-court season, but after losing to Rafael Nadal in the semifinals, he was unable to successfully defend his French Open crown. He ultimately recovered and won his seventh Wimbledon championship, but it looks as though time has completely turned around. Djokovic is now prohibited from entering the USA, therefore he is unable to participate in the North American swing. Due to his lack of immunization, he was unable to compete in the current Canada Masters, and just hours before the draw, he withdrew from the Cincinnati Masters.

Seth Dillon calls on the authorities to let Novak Djokovic compete in yet another tweet

Support for Novak Djokovic is growing by the day ahead of the US Open. Scheduled to begin in the last week of August, the major will be preceded by warm-up tournaments, like the National Bank Open and the Cincinnati Open.

The United States government published updated COVID-19 guidelines and regulations in June. All international visitors must now provide proof of two coronavirus vaccinations in order to enter the US under the new regulations. As a result, Djokovic is likely to miss the North American swing and with it, the US Open.

The 35-year-old was deported from Australia earlier this year for not being vaccinated, a move that caused massive uproar around the world. While Djokovic’s stance on getting vaccinated invited a lot of vitriol, there were many who chose to side with them. Among the supporters is Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee, a reputed news publication portal. He has expressed support for the Serbian in a series of tweets as of late, criticizing the government and calling on lawmakers to change the vaccination guidelines.

In a recent tweet, Dillon shared new norms, courtesy of the CDC, and in a tone intended to mock the existing guidelines, tweeted, “If unvaccinated people aren’t evil and dangerous anymore, can we go ahead and let @DjokerNole play?” He also tagged the Serbian’s wife, Jelena Djokovic in the tweet.
