The news that Intellectual Dark Webber Jordan Peterson had caught the ‘rona hit his fans on Reddit hard.
But the circumstances of his latest ordeal seem more than a little fishy — he contracted the virus in the midst of some sort of rehab at a clinic in Serbia, not long after his daughter, crackpot nutrition guru Mikhaila Peterson, posted a video of herself in a Serbian club smoking a hookah and dancing to the “Numa Numa” song with not a face mask in sight.
This has led some of Peterson’s fans on Reddit to accuse her of infecting him with the virus, either from sheer recklessness or, even more darkly, because she’s a practitioner of Munchausen by Proxy who prefers her father sick.
“She’s probably the one who infected him in the first place,” wrote one Redditor called Jravensloot.
Can’t believe she was stupid enough to brag about going to crowded parties and Hookah bars in the middle of a pandemic and act surprised when she gets infected and spreads it to others.
“Did he get it from his idiot daughter?” asked kingoff00ls.
I’m fairly sure fresh out of rehab with a pandemic around he would basically be on house arrest. Meaning one of his family members most likely gave it to him.
I love Jordan Peterson but I really really really do not like his daughter.
Someone calling himself Dr_Jan_Itorr was even harsher:
His idiot daughter is going out to crowded bars in Eastern Europe and bringing it home with her. She doesn’t believe in it. She pushed him into that god awful quack treatment across the globe for his benzo addiction when he hadn’t even completed a standard detox in Canada yet. She’s nuts and she’s going to end up getting her father killed with this munchausen by proxy bullshit
In another comment, the good Dr. bemoaned what he sees as her
bizzare and seemingly joyous moments in the spotlight while he’s in a coma. She was so delighted to revel in the fact that she was the only source of news, plugged her own bullshit web$ite on the same clips where she talks about it. …
[L]ook up the phenomenon “munchausen by proxy” and go back to some of her videos where she validates bringing him for this totally back ally and vaguely described treatment … .
Others were equally quick to blame her for the COVID and all the other strange aspects of his various treatments over the last year, which took him to Russia, where he was put in an induced coma for his “treatment,” before landing in Serbia.
“I wonder how many other people she spread it to?” wrote The_Yangtard.
This selfish bitch most likely has blood on her hands, and it ain’t from the venison.
“If Jordan keeps listening to his daughter he’s gonna fucking die,” warned Dobbly_ginger_anus.
We don’t know exactly how Peterson caught the virus. According to a recent Instagram story from Mikhaila, the family was on total lockdown when her toddler daughter started showing symptoms.
10 days into the strict quarantine – and I mean strict, we didn’t go outside of the property – my toddler got symptoms of a flu – swiftly followed by the rest of us. Turns out a lot of people in Belgrade caught it, she must have caught it at the playground.
It’s not altogether clear to me how the daughter could have caught the virus from “the playground” when no one in the family left their property.
In the Instagram story Mikhaila also claims that her father is “okay now,” which presumably means he’s over the virus.
But it’s hard to know for sure because she gives no more details. The world of the Petersons is such a dark and mysterious place, all the more so when the only source of information about the family is Mikhaila. I guess now all we can do is await news of the next medical catastrophe to strike her father.
