The pair leapt to Pete’s defence while discussing the draconian lockdown measures in coronavirus-riddled Melbourne.

Josh expressed relief that he wasn’t currently living in Melbourne where people didn’t have a ‘bill of rights’ and a ‘constitution that protects your human rights.’

He immediately cited Pete as a hero for ‘exposing and shining a light’ on the pandemic.

‘He has thrown away every single thing that everyone in the world is trying to attain. He had success, he’s famous, he was on TV and had a million dollar a year job. He’s thrown it all away to expose what’s going on!

‘We need more people like Pete Evans. The more backlash that you get means you’re on to something,’ he added.

Romel shared the same views as Joshua, adding: ‘He is definitely one of the smartest individuals I have ever met in my whole life. I love what he stands for.

‘What I admire about him is that he’s not afraid to hold back. He could easily say, “you know what? I’ve got a career online, so I’ll keep my opinions to myself and just look after my family.”

‘But he’s going on a huge platform and sharing these opinions.’

Romel defiantly continued: ‘It actually upsets me seeing the backlash he receives because the world needs people like Pete Evans.

‘We need people like him to shine the light on situations that may or may not be real. We can’t all be stupid. We can’t all be following things we’re told by the media.

‘So I’m grateful to have him. I stand right behind him, and I back him.’

Pete has also been embroiled in a string of controversies since departing Channel Seven earlier this year.

Despite sharing misleading information about immunisation over the years, Pete has insisted he is not an ‘anti-vaxxer’ but ‘pro-choice for medical freedom’.

However, there is no such thing as being ‘pro-choice’ regarding vaccinations. People who do not vaccinate their children are putting the community at unnecessary risk.

Pete has claimed on several occasions that vaccines cause autism, but this is false and based on a scientific paper that was later exposed as fraudulent.
