At no point did anyone take Hugh Jackman seriously last night at the Golden Globes when he joked about the lack of importance of getting a flu shot.

Because, you see, it was a joke — he had the flu. He didn't like the flu, and he wasn't promoting how easy it was to have the flu. He was joking because he SHOULD HAVE gotten a flu shot.

Yet, here's the CDC losing their damn minds over it!

Here's what a rep said:

"I don’t know if he really meant that vaccination was not a good thing to do, but each year millions become ill with influenza; more than 200,000 may be hospitalized; and between 3,000 and 49,000 will die. The first and most important step in protecting against the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season."

Wow, thanks for that Debbie Downer of the CDC.

Give us a break. Here's what he said, jokingly grinning the whole time and obviously feeling terrible:

"Sorry, I’m at the tail end of this flu and I was kicking myself for not getting the flu shot … but it appears actually you don’t need one. I feel great!"

No CDC member needs to waste their time clarifying!

Congrats, Hugh!
