An anti-vaxxer who made headlines after filming himself abusing a cafe barista over the store’s vaccine policy has repeated the performance at another establishment.
Dominic Karnaby, a Christian podcaster who runs the Drayk Podcast Show, has uploaded another video of him yelling at staff at another cafe about access policies.
In the video that Karnaby titles, Communism v Drayk, he heard a masked cafe worker say, “I don’t think you understand how segregation works.”
“First it won’t come in unless you’re checked in, don’t come in unless you’re vaccinated and then you can’t even buy food at Woolworths unless you’re vaccinated,” Karnaby said.
‘Do you really want to undermine that dangerous precedent here in NSW, sir?’
He then complains about the politicization of vaccine eligibility requirements under current public health regulations.
“I just want coffee, I just want coffee, bro,” he said.
“It shouldn’t be such a crazy deal to make it so politicized. It’s a circus now, give me a cup of coffee.”
The staff member in the cafe remains remarkably calm in the face of the tirade, offering little response.
In the new video, Karnaby said he was denied service at six companies on the same day.
‘Your company must stop discriminating. I don’t agree with that,” he said.
Karnaby also claims that people like himself who are “immuno-compressed” with asthma would not be happy with the cafe’s policies.

The new video complements Karnaby’s previous efforts, where he shared footage of himself from the staff of Bespoke and Grind, in Sydney’s inner west, during the city’s Covid lockdown in July after being politely asked why he isn’t wearing a mask. wore.
The July footage shows Karnaby berating a waitress as he likened mask mandates to “rape.”
On Tuesday, the video of Karnaby launching a verbal diatribe against catering workers at Tempe’s Cafe Dzajko went viral.
The footage showed him storming into the store on Monday and scolding barista Andrassa Kest after seeing a sign outside saying the company would follow the law by requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccination before service.
He claims the new jab ordinance – which is part of NSW’s reopening rules for businesses after exiting the lockdown on October 11 – is ‘segregation’ as he hurls abuse over the espresso machine.
“Excuse me, why do you think I’m going to hand over my medical, private information about whether I’m vaccinated or unvaccinated to buy a cup of coffee?” Karnaby yells at Mrs. Kest.
“See how insanely hypocritical that sounds? That you actually go into segregation implicitly… I am very powerful and I’ll be back!’
‘Do you have anything to say to that? “Because I know I’m protected under this discrimination and this vicious attempt at segregation, okay.”

The video, which went viral after being posted by an anonymous Instagram account, sparked widespread outrage as the community gathered to show their support for the company, with locals flocking to the cafe to leave tips between $10 and $50.
Speaking to Cafe Dzajko owner Sally Dzajko, reporter Gabrielle Boyle called Karnaby’s actions today “despondent.”
“This was a pretty cowardly act,” she said on Wednesday.
This man was happy to film the staff and put this video online, but he wasn’t happy to show his own face or name. The staff say they feel quite intimidated by what has happened, but they are doing well today.’
Supporters have since activated their social media accounts, urging Sydneysiders to head to the cafe and buy a treat as a show of solidarity.
“That kind of disrespect is just wrong! I went there today to buy my lunch and leave a tip,” one man wrote on Facebook.
“They are wonderful people who deserve our respect and support. They actually started the company during the pandemic. What could be more entrepreneurial than that.
“Go downstairs as soon as possible for a cup of coffee and a sandwich.”
Another man said he walked four kilometers to visit the eatery and offer his support.
“When I got there, the owner said my coffee was free because someone else saw this idiot’s video and decided to yell at the next ten customers,” his Tweet read.
Ms Kest said she was afraid of Karnaby but appreciated the outpouring of community support.

“I’m a bit scared and frustrated because I was just playing by the rules,” 9News told 9News.
“One bad thing brings a lot of nice and good things.”
Ms Dzajko did not witness the encounter with the anti-vaxxer but told Daily Mail Australia she was shocked at what happened.
‘It’s terrible. I don’t know why people have to be so mean. It’s a shame, it’s just heartbreaking.’
Despite the public outcry, Karnaby seemed relieved by his efforts – he posted media articles about the incident on his Instagram.
‘Nice story you ran with ABC News! One thing you got right was that I’m mighty! [sic]’, He wrote.
‘Yes I roar I am a lion duuuur!!’ another message read: “You want to play God with these passports and tell me what I can and can’t do in society because I’m not getting pricked with your devil’s juice.”
Karnaby declined to comment when approached by the Daily Mail Australia, saying he didn’t think he needed to comment on ‘vaccine apartheid’.

In July, Karnaby marched into Marrickville’s cafe and launched a blistering attack in which he accused a waitress of “harassment” after being asked why he hadn’t been masked before posting footage of the confrontation on Instagram.
Before bursting into an irrational rage claiming he had a “medical exemption,” the clip begins in-store, filming a sign at the register specifically asking customers not to enter without a mask.
“Who are you, I’m sorry?” Are you the government? New. Are you the police? No,” he rushes.
‘I have an exemption! So know your rights, but also know that I have rights too. I have asthma, I have a respiratory complication, so I can’t wear a mask.’
“If someone is raped, are you going to tell them not to feel those feelings of being raped and abused by someone?”
Karnaby proudly shared articles about his antics on his social media page on Monday
“This has to be a safe place for everyone and I’m not going to stand for that.
“Some of these muppets here might tolerate it, but not me, my friend.”
A second video showed Karnaby continuing to berate the staff, accusing them of “harassment” and threatening to let them go “viral” after the owner calmly explained that his response was not justified.
“Excuse me, all you had to do was say, ‘I have an exemption.’ That’s all,” she explains.
Karnaby said, ‘You’ve got to get that guy in line, it’s disgusting the way he just treated me.
“The intimidation has to stop. Do you want to go viral? You’re already going to do that.’
The serial speaker’s social media accounts are full of Bible commentary, anti-abortion sentiment and views opposing Covid vaccines.
About 75 per cent of people in NSW have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 – but that hasn’t stopped a small but vociferous minority from lashing out at vaccine rules (pictured, a woman being vaccinated in Sydney)
One meme shows a woman holding up a sign that reads “The blood of Christ is my vaccine,” while another shows a cross-shaped vaccine syringe.
Covid vaccines are highly effective at stopping deaths and hospitalizations, with a study of 3.4 million Americans showing that Pfizer is 95 percent effective at preventing serious illness.
A similar study by AstraZeneca in the UK found that the Oxford vaccine is 80 percent effective in preventing serious illness in Covid-19 patients.
While some Australians are hesitant to get the shot, the majority of NSW residents are fully vaccinated.
As of Wednesday, 75.2 percent of the over 16s statewide had received both doses, while 90.8 percent had received one vaccine.
