David Cotterill comes up with another bizarre claim to add to all of the other theories he has

David Cotterill, the former footballer, comes up with another bizarre claim to add to all of the other theories he has posted on social media.

These days. he’s a mental health consultant and public speaker, though it isn’t uncommon for him to post some wild takes, and this is the latest to go viral especially on Twitter.

He wrote: “People keep saying what’s the issue with Obama being gay. No problem at all but you have to think if he can lie about that and he was President of the US, what else has he lied about… well trafficking kids for one.

“Michelle is born male that’s another.

“Watch the space Michelle Obama first transgender to run for presidency.”

Below, we take a look at just some of his other claims that got people talking, from Covid to the Texas shootings in early 2022.

David Cotterill caused outrage with his Instagram post which came just 24 hours after the tragic Texas school shooting.

The ex-Wales international has been adjudged to have suggested that “crisis actors” were used in the massacre that killed 21 people.

19 children and 2 teachers lost their lives when a lone gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Reports claim the suspect, Salvador Ramos, 18, had also shot his grandmother before going onto school premise.

Ramos was shot dead by authorities just after the incident, which is America’s deadliest school massacre in almost 10 years.

The incident has led to widespread grief and outrage across America and the rest of the world, with increased calls made to tighter gun control laws.

However, Cotterill is being accused to have suggested on Instagram that the massacre was “staged” using “crisis actors” with the aim of “manipulating public opinion to bring about change”.

In a post shared to his Instagram story, a message read: “It’s so easy for the controllers to get the exact reaction they’re looking for out of 90% of the population using the same strategy over and over again.

“Take a look at any comment section on the latest event in the US and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Classic problem, reaction, solution. False flag events are one of their go to methods of manipulating the public opinion to bring about change.

“America is the last major country that allows its citizens to arm themselves, which they can’t really have with what they’re planning to do in the coming months and years.

“Many of these events are staged using crisis actors or carried out using victims of MK Ultra/Big Harma. Mantain focus on their agent, and you’ll make sense of it all.”

Cotterill posted this message on his Instagram story

He has previously been controversial when giving his political views. He was critical over the government’s approach to the Covid pandemic, especially the effects of lockdowns, and has frequently posted baseless theories about the alleged dangers of vaccines.

When contacted by WalesOnline, he denied the post related to the Texas school massacre, saying: “When I actually released that I wasn’t even made aware of the actual shooting until I spoke to my dad and he said ‘have you seen the recent shooting in America?’ So my post was just about recent articles when you see some of the stuff about the pandemic. It was not about the actual shooting as I wasn’t even made aware of it until I spoke to my dad, as I said. I fully respect people have lost their lives.”

Daily Star Sport also approached Cotterill for a response, though he did post on Instagram saying: “What a load of b*******. My post was nothing to do with the shooting at all and innocent people being killed.

“My post was about actors being used right throughout the plandemic!”

David Cotterill was also previously slammed once again by fans on social media over his grim comment to Brighton’s Enock Mwepu on early retirement.

He was criticised making a claim that the hereditary heart issue that has caused Mwepu to retire age 24 is due to a Covid vaccine.

The Seagulls midfielder announced with sadness on Monday that he’s been forced to end his playing career after being diagnosed with a condition that put him ‘at extremely high risk of a cardiac event.’


Cotterill decided to see this as some he could take advantage of, no matter how insensitive it was of him as he commented on a post announcing the retirement by saying ‘so sad. And we all know what the cause is,’ a veiled reference to his conspiracy theories about side effects of the coronavirus vaccine.

Cotterill also seem to relish in the negative attention he was getting, posting an Instagram story of his angry DMs with the caption ‘how’s everyone’s DMs this morning, all good?’

The former Wales international often expressed his aversion to the vaccine before, and tweeted last week saying: ‘You remember when the unvaccinated were warned that if they didn’t get the vaccine they would be in hospitals fighting for their lives?

‘I haven’t been vaccinated but not dead or fighting for my life! Anyone else?’

Cotterill has often used his platform on twitter to pedal various conspiracy theories

On Monday the 20th of December 2021, he tweeted as Prime Minister Boris Johnson was holding a Cabinet meeting at 2pm of the same day.

@cotterill_david wrote: “There are over 850,000 registered sex offenders in the UK and they don’t have to carry a card because it violates their privacy!!

“But we have to show proof of a vaccination to get into cinemas or restaurants. Come on 😂🤣”

Cotterill also posted via Twitter: “Mental health is more deadly to our children today than Omicron. The fear that people who are running our countries and the media platforms are causing so many problems to people it’s insane. Turn the news off and live being with family and loved ones.“

“Both the vaccinated and unvaccinated can catch and spread the virus almost equally! Keeping the unvaccinated out of public places but we all spread it! So turns out we are all in this together! The unvaccinated are not a threat to society.. But they are a threat to authority.”

Every time that Cotterill posts a new claim that goes viral, the story of how he, according to the Daily Mail – ‘cheated team-mates out of £400,000 and facef legal action after convincing them to invest in property schemes while living a glamorous lifestyle including glitzy wedding and lavish holidays’ – tends to always be brought up by social media users.
