A fiery woman has made a bold announcement at the anti-vaccine mandate protests in New Zealand, declaring she's leaving her husband because he got the Covid-19 booster jab

The woman joins thousands of people gathered around the country's parliament building for the fourth day in a row to rally against Covid restrictions and vaccine mandates.

"I’m leaving my husband. He got the booster today. He's gone. I don’t want anything to do with him," the protestor told New Zealand's 1 News on Thursday.

"I honestly seriously believe he is going to die – that’s getting off-topic."

Further on in the news report, she declared "I will die for my grandchildren today" as she participated in the protests.

Footage of the clip has since gone viral on TikTok with over 61,000 people "liking" the recording.

The comments came as at least 120 protesters were arrested on Thursday and two police were injured, News.com.au reports.

The protest began on Tuesday with scenes mirroring the truckers' demonstrations in Canada, which saw a "freedom convoy" storm the city streets.

In Wellington, hundreds of cars, trucks and motorbikes have congregated around New Zealand's parliament building bringing streets to a standstill.

As the protests continue, more and more tents continue to occupy the parliament lawns with people vowing to stay "as long as it takes".

There are vaccine mandates in New Zealand across health, disability, education, fire and emergency, police, defence and correctional workforce sectors.

'Make it stop': Social media loses it over 'desperate' Scott Morrison clip

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Scott Morrison sent social media into meltdown – again – after a clip for an upcoming interview saw him playing the ukulele and singing.

The clip was from a preview of an upcoming 60 Minutes episode with the PM and his wife, Jenny Morrison as well as their two daughters, Lily and Abbey.

Although the clip was introduced with a tongue-in-cheek comment from Today host Ally Langdon, jokingly saying: “I think he learned that in Hawaii, didn’t he?” — referencing Scott Morrison's controversial 2019 holiday as bushfires tore through multiple states — social media users did not find it as funny.

"Extremely cringe," one viewer wrote. "Scott Morrison is LITERALLY reminding everyone about that infamous Hawaii trip during the bushfires. All he's missing is a Hawaiian shirt etc."
