Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is facing backlash from his own family after his recent public comments about COVID-19.

The Democratic presidential candidate made antisemitic and racist comments, claiming the virus was engineered to favor Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese people while targeting Caucasians and Black people.

RFK Jr.'s sister—Kerry Kennedy—denounced his remarks in her capacity as president of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, a non-profit human rights advocacy organization.

In an official statement, she wrote:

"I strongly condemn my brother's deplorable and untruthful remarks last week about Covid being engineered for ethnic targeting."
"His statements do not represent what I believe or what Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights stand for, with our 50+-year track record of protecting rights and standing against racism and all forms of discrimination."

Kennedy also shared her statement of social media.

Kennedy Jr. said at a New York City press event:

"COVID-19. There is an argument that it is ethnically targeted. COVID-19 attacks certain races disproportionately."
"COVID-19 is targeted to attack Caucasians and Black people. The people who are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese."

Kennedy later claimed the New York Post misunderstood his words.

People weren't buying it however.

In 2021, Kerry Kennedy responded to her brother's anti-vaxxer rhetoric.

She told AP:

"I love Bobby, I think he's just completely wrong on this issue and very dangerous."
"Failure to take vaccines puts people's lives at risk."
"It not only impacts the person who refuses the jab but imperils the community at large."
