Former Married at First Sight star Dean Wells has appeared to side with Sam Frost over her COVID vaccination stance and called for an end to "segregation" caused by jab mandates.
Sam recently received a mixed reaction from fans and fellow celebrities after admitting she won't be getting vaccinated.
In the since-deleted clip, the Home and Away star she had "good reasons" to not get the vaccine but chose to keep them between her and her doctor, then called for "empathy" for those who choose to remain unvaccinated.
Two days after the fallout, with Sam subsequently deleting her Instagram following backlash, Dean took to social media to air his own frustrations and share a similar sentiment as the actress.
"I'm not saying it's dangerous or that other people shouldn't not get it. Just that's it's perfectly reasonable for some people to not want to get it and we should respect everyone's position," he wrote.
"No matter what your stance, there are many people in the community that are feeling pressured by mandates, losing their livelihood, being segregated from the rest of society and more.
"This madness has to end. We need to accept people's choices and have understanding and compassion for everyone. Not just those who have the same views as us."
Dean shared his opinions alongside a post dedicated to a friend who took her own life recently.
"She was a sane, intelligent, lovely, completely normal person who did not believe in being forced to get a jab," he wrote.
The reality star's post comes after Sam posted an emotional video to her social media page on Saturday revealing that she had made the choice not to get vaccinated against COVID.
"I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing," she said in the five-minute-long clip.
"But I feel like it's getting to a point now in the world where there's a lot of segregation, a lot of harsh judgment, and it's taking its toll on my mental health."
Her use of the term "segregation" and vocal decision not to get vaccinated caused a wave of backlash across the internet.
