Bizarre Teletubbies vaccine tweet causes upset (and it's not why you think)

As the world gets vaccinated against Covid-19, there have been a lot of opinions bandied about. But the most recent weigh-in has come from an unexpected source, and it's caused somewhat of a stir. Yup, kids TV sensations of yesteryear, The Teletubbies have tweeted, and followers have taken issue with a great deal of the content – but not for the reasons you think. 

The tweet, which includes images of Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po's vaccination cards, includes at least one major factual mistake, which fans were not willing to let go. And while we're used to the topic of vaccination causing some fierce discussion, we were both surprised and tickled by some of the responses. See the tweet below, and these Illustrator tutorials if you want to try making something less controversial.
