“The issue is like, in today’s world, with misinformation just endemic, you’ve got to be careful about what comes out of your mouth when it comes to that,” he told Dax and Monica Padman on Thursday's podcast episode. 

“Because news doesn’t exist in just news anymore. It’s splattered all over the place, so people like listen to Joe Rogan and say ‘oh if he says that…’” Harry explained.

As Radar reported, Prince Harry took center stage at Global Citizen's VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World in Inglewood, California earlier this month. 

He was in good company. Big names like Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Selena Gomez, and Chrissy Teigen were also there in an attempt at getting the COVID-19 vaccines distributed all around the world.

“With a platform comes responsibility,” Harry told Dax. "What we really need to be aware of and what we cannot allow to happen, is science being politicized."

"So many things have been politicized over the years but when we're talking about life and death — which is what we're talking about now — vaccines cannot be politicized," he continued. 

"Being able to come together as humans, as people, is how we're going to get ourselves out of this and we must ensure that everyone around the world has equal access to the vaccine, otherwise none of this works."
