Facebook permanently deleted its Instagram account last month.
But that didn’t stop Pete Evans from making an appearance on the social media site by appearing in his wife Nicola’s Instagram Stories on Wednesday.
In a bizarre video, the controversial celebrity chef hugged a horse, while a woman (presumably Nicola) provided the horse’s ‘comment’ off-camera.
He is back! Pete Evans makes an appearance on the social media site which just banned it by appearing in a video on his wife Nicola’s account this week
Evans hugged the horse’s head as he asked, “Are you going to tell me a secret?”
“Yes,” the woman’s voice could be heard.
‘What is your secret?’ the former judge of My Kitchen Rules asked, the woman replying “I love you”.
“I love you too, mate,” Evans replied.

Strange behavior: Evans hugged the horse’s head and asked, “Are you going to tell me a secret?”
All that could be seen of the woman were her legs and feet stretched out on the table where the two men were seated.
A well-known anti-vaxxer, Evans was taken off Instagram, his latest mainstream social media platform, last month.
The owner of the Facebook platform released a statement at the time, saying: ‘We have deleted Pete Evans’ account for repeatedly sharing denied claims about the coronavirus or vaccines. ”
“ We do not allow anyone to share misinformation about COVID-19 that could lead to imminent physical harm or about COVID-19 vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts. ”
Evans was kicked from Facebook himself in December, and his podcast was deleted from Spotify as well. He had a million followers on Facebook.
It was also ditched by 15 sponsors and companies in two days after posting a neo-Nazi meme on social media.

Just last week, Evans received a joke with a website named after his Senate campaign that redirects to a government website about the importance of immunization.
Instead, Evans fans looking for his political campaign website were redirected to the official federal immunization programs webpage – insisting that they are “ simple, safe and effective. ”
Users also receive more information on how to get vaccinated against diseases like Covid-19 when they visit www.peteevansforsenate.com.
Evans has been a virulent skeptic of the coronavirus vaccine and has even called the global Covid-19 crisis a “ scamdemic ”.
Last week, Evans received a joke with a URL named after his Senate race, diverting to a federal government health webpage on the value of immunization.

WHY VACCINES ARE IMPORTANT
Vaccination is a simple, safe and effective way to protect people from harmful diseases before they come in contact with them.
Vaccination not only protects individuals, but also other members of the community, by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.
Research and testing is an essential part of developing safe and effective vaccines.
In Australia, vaccines must pass strict safety tests before the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) registers them for use. Approval of vaccines can take up to 10 years.
Before vaccines become available to the public, large clinical trials are testing them on thousands of people.
High-quality studies over many years have compared the health of large numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Medical information from nearly 1.5 million children worldwide has confirmed that vaccination does not cause autism.
People first worried about autism and vaccination after the medical journal The Lancet published an article in 1998. This article claimed that there was a link between the measles vaccine, mumps, rubella (MMR) and autism. Since then, scientists have completely discredited this article. The Lancet withdrew it in 2010 and issued an apology. The UK’s General Medical Council struck the author off the medical register for misconduct and dishonesty.

Satirist media outlet The Chaser claimed responsibility for the prank, saying: ‘I thought we would help Pete by setting up a campaign site in his name. ”
Evans was unexpectedly announced at 1 a.m. on February 12 as a Senate candidate for the Great Australia Party (GAP) in the upcoming federal election.
At the time, GAP leader Rod Culleton said: “ Pete Evans has maintained his principles and inspired others in the face of rare adversity. ”

His publisher Pan McMillan terminated his deal with him and he was fired from I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! by Channel 10.
Evans began to gain negative attention in 2015 and has since been criticized for spreading misinformation and promoting baseless conspiracy theories on a range of topics including diet, vaccinations, the coronavirus and even backed a wild QAnon-like claim that Australia is ruled by pedophiles.
He’s also a die-hard fan of disgraced former US President Donald Trump and has been pictured proudly wearing a Make America Great Again cap.
He continued to blame the media for his spectacular career implosion and focused on promoting his views through the platforms of the Great Australia Party.
