Home and Away star Harley Bonner slams ‘cancel culture’ after quitting the soap in the wake of Channel Seven’s Covid vaccine mandate

Last month, Harley Bonner left Home and Away when Channel Seven imposed a requirement that all cast and staff members be completely vaccinated against Covid-19.

On Wednesday, the 30-year-old actor wrote a lengthy Instagram post regarding cancel culture following his departure from the drama.

He began by saying, ‘Cancel culture is the lamest of the lame.’

‘Why would you waste time wishing someone didn’t exist just because they said something that made you feel a certain way you didn’t like?’ Added he.

‘It’s because you’ve been “offended.” So? So, what’s next? Why has being offended become the most unacceptably unpleasant experience?

‘A better use of your time would be to ask yourself why you were offended in the first place.’

‘Take charge of your damn experience,’ Bonner continued. It’s the laziest s**t ever to wish the experience away instead of dealing with your own emotional issues.’


‘There’s fire everywhere, but we have the gun powder,’ says the narrator.

‘The world needs to screw its [sic] blasted head back on,’ he added.

While it’s unknown what caused Bonner’s outburst, he had previously shared a post criticising individuals wanting to have podcaster Joe Rogan’s show cancelled.

Bonner left Home and Away last month after less than a year on the show, according to Channel Seven.

His departure coincided with Seven Productions’ implementation of a policy mandating all cast and crew members to get vaccinated against Covid-19.

Bonner and Seven have yet to confirm or deny that his resignation was linked to the vaccine mandate.

Bonner has been approached by the Daily Mail Australia for comment.

Last month, the actor took to Instagram to express his dissatisfaction with his leaving, claiming he was’very delighted’ and thanking fans for their support.

He wrote, ‘Thanks and love to you everyone.’ ‘I’m overjoyed. It’s a good life. Continue to share kindness.’

With a love-heart emoji, he ended his message.

Bonner came up for the first time since the network announced he will not be returning to Home and Away.

‘Channel Seven can confirm Harley will not return to Home and Away when filming resumes in the coming weeks,’ a Seven spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

After previously appearing on rival Channel 10 series Neighbours, Bonner made his debut in August as gorgeous trauma surgeon Dr Logan Bennett.
