Barrett was lambasted on social media by many who called the decision a betrayal.
“I think Justice Amy Coney Barrett just spit in Republicans faces & basically said wear your mask, get your vaccine, and shut the f**k up about it,” said one critic identifying herself as a Trump supporter.
“Forced vaccination on students went from a conspiracy theory to a reality. Amy Coney Barrett should be ashamed of herself. Forcing kids to get a new coronavirus jab? Beyond evil,” said another critic.
“Amy Coney Barrett continues to show she never deserved the job in the first place. What a waste of a Supreme Court appointee,” replied another.
“Amy Coney Barrett is a coward and traitor,” responded another social media user.
