A Facebook comment has gone viral on social media for shutting down an anti-vaxxer with a biting comeback.

Per BoredPanda, the comment in question picked up interest after it was shared on the Reddit forum r/MurderedByWords - where Reddit users can share all manner of deep burns, verbal putdowns, and savage comebacks.

The post in question was shared by a Redditor going by the handle u/Slackbeing, and was titled: "Antivaxer gets his meme shot point-blank."

The Facebook meme was an example of the image macro series "Philosoraptor", and was captioned: "How is my unvaccinated kid a danger to your vaccinated kid if vaccines work?"

Not wanting the meme to pass unremarked upon, another Facebook user (whose identity was not been disclosed) promptly took to the comments to respond.

In a lengthy post, they wrote: "Your unvaccinated kid is a risk to every kid, not just the vaccinated ones."

The comment continued:

"As I'm sure you can recall from the hours of immunology lectures you had to attend the vaccine efficacy rate varies from vaccine to vaccine, but none are 100% effective and of course it would be imbecilic to expect them to be.

That as I'm sure you will recall from your high school lessons in epistemology and logic is what is [known] as a Nirvana fallacy, but I'm sure I don't have to explain such a basic failure of critical cognizance to somebody as learned as you. [sic]"

The commenter went on to say: "Anyway, back to your little pox rat.

"As you know in a given population the serostatus will vary, when you allow for the immunocompromised and the inevitable seroreversion it becomes clear that every unvaccinated person becomes a risk not only of spreading VPDs but also of becoming an incubator for viral mutation, further increasing the risk to society. [sic]"

They added:

"Anyway glad I could clear that up for you, now when you have a minute do you think you could see your way clear to back up your ridiculous claims that the flu shot caused 50,000 deaths and chemo causes cancer because people are starting to suspect you are just talking out your *ss.

"Nice meme by the way, but why doesn't your velociraptor have feathers?"

Suffice to say, a number of other Redditors were clearly impressed by this brutal tirade, and the post has currently accrued over 58,700 upvotes as of the time of writing.

Meanwhile, someone else added: "Came for the murder, was entranced by the pox rat, learned from the science. Excellent."
