Sharing pictures and videos of yourself getting the Covid-19 shot has become a trend. The growing craze among social media users is even believed to have caused a feeling of 'Vaccine Envy' among those who haven't. As if this hadn't drawn enough criticism, CNN reporter Jim Acosta went one step ahead by putting his T-shirt detailing all the stories he has covered in 2020 on display, while getting the Covid-19 shot on his arm. 

Even though several have praised him for doing his job well with the coverage of certain prominent events that defined the past year, the rest have resorted to trolling him for being a "narcissist", who use the opportunity to flaunt his professional achievements.

Acosta trolled for flaunting his 'commemorative shirt'

Sharing a picture of himself getting the shot, Acosta tweeted, "Just the shot in the arm I needed. The latest studies show the Covid-19 vaccines are highly effective. Please do your part to end this pandemic. Get your shot!"



 

Acosta's shirt read, "In 2020, I covered the impeachment trial & a caucus night (that lasted a week) & the primaries & the covid pandemic & the economic crash & the racial justice protests & Lafayette Square & so many rallies & the death of RBG & the president's 1 AM coronavirus diagnosis & a Supreme Court confirmation & an election night (that lasted a week) & ----- by tweet and recounts and the presidential transition and I have this commemorative shirt to prove it"



 

'You know you're a narcissist when...'

Acosta's choice of shirt and the words printed on it has gathered varied reactions. Several of them have trolled him publicly for making it "all about me". One Twitter user, Beth Bauman, who serves as Associate Editor at TownHall.com said in response to Acosta's t-shirt, "Next shirt should say "I'm the jackass who pushed a White House intern because press briefings need to be all about me & then I can write 'dear diary' posts about my experiences & get made fun of on Twitter & think I'm the shit." Adding to that another wrote, "If you zoom in closely, it says: “I tried super hard to journalism but all I got was this lousy T-Shirt.” In another tweet it was written, "You know you're a narcissist when..." And one tweeted, "You’re really wearing that shirt, one you specifically picked out that day knowing you’d be photographed in it, and you wonder why your profession is held in contempt by the public." Another trolled the news host saying. "I bitched and complained about doing my job for a year, while successfully making it all about me and all I got was this t-shirt I made for myself...".
