Gillian McKeith’s COVID acrostic conspiracy theory earned her these 12 hilarious takedowns
Most people’s first memories of Gillian McKeith will be of the formerly self-styled ‘doctor’ analysing Tupperware containers of poo on The Food Doctor, or doing fake-looking faints on ‘I’m a Celebrity’.
More recently, however, she’s mostly been in the public eye for opposing Covid lockdown measures, side-by-side with such luminaries as *checks notes* Right Said Fred.
On Wednesday, she posted what she seemed to think was some sort of grand revelation in the form of this acrostic.
We don’t know what to say about that. Luckily, Twitter did.
How did noone else spot this? It changes everything. https://t.co/ukvDLNgiUu

We would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for:
– that meddling woman who rummages through human shit on the telly
– our love of acronyms

I know that if I was organising a global conspiracy I’d definitely make the virus’s name an acronym of what I was planning all along, just for fun 🙃 pic.twitter.com/sys4YRgPoA

It's not a massive shock that Not A Doctor Tupperware Shit Woman thinks an acrostic is a form of medical evidence.

I think you have established that antihistamines should not be taken with gin. So, bravo for that. https://t.co/yzYpFy46Em

Easily my favourite thing about conspiracy theorists is that they believe that all of these secret, evil plans are made by the same people as those who haunt waterparks on Scooby Doo https://t.co/iX74UDfzFS

Anaesthetist Michael Goulden had a suggestion.
Would you like to work a few shifts on our ICU, what with your vast medical qualifications and expertise?

There’s no response as yet. She’s probably cleaning her Tupperware.
