The worrying sign Sam Frost’s career at Channel Seven is on VERY thin ice – as the Home and Away star goes to ground after her anti-vax controversy










Sam Frost’s future at Channel Seven is looking increasingly uncertain after one of the network’s biggest stars publicly condemned the Home and Away star on Twitter.

Sunrise host David Koch retweeted several posts over the weekend criticising Frost, 32, after she declared on Instagram she was refusing the Covid-19 vaccine.

While Seven has issued a statement saying Frost is still an employee, Koch’s damning retweets have led to rumours her days at the network could be numbered.

Koch retweeted two posts that are still visible on his Twitter feed as of Wednesday.

The first tweet, by writer Jess McGuire, stated: ‘This is not a real problem. If medical reasons mean you can’t get vaccinated, then pro-vax advocates are trying to protect you cos everyone who can needs to get vaccinated to protect those who CAN’T.

‘If you’re CHOOSING not to? You’re not a victim.’

The second, by Australian cabaret performer Hans the German, read: ‘It’s not an argument. She IS wrong. A video with vagueness about her health, dressing it up as victimhood while stoking the anti-vax flames.

‘All while she’s been able to work this whole time. It’s a disgrace. My blood is boiling.’

Koch’s retweets make clear his opinion on the matter, which is in stark contrast to the more sympathetic coverage on 7News, Sunrise and The Morning Show.

Entertainment reporter Peter Ford, for example, said on The Morning Show on Monday that while he disagreed with Frost’s views and felt her video was misguided, he condemned the social media ‘pile-on’ and public shaming of her.

There’s no doubt Koch’s views are shared by many employees at Seven, especially in the breakfast TV division which has mandated the vaccine for all crew members.

Furthermore, a company-wide survey in August revealed that three quarters of Seven employees supported a policy of mandatory vaccination in the workplace.

There’s no word yet on whether Home and Away plans to make the jab mandatory, or if such an announcement prompted Frost to release her video last week.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.
