The worrying sign Sam Frost's career at Channel Seven is on VERY thin ice - as the Home and Away star goes to ground after her anti-vax controversy

Sam Frost's future at Channel Seven is looking increasingly uncertain after one of the network's biggest stars publicly condemned her on Twitter.

Sunrise host David Koch, 65, retweeted several posts over the weekend criticising the Home and Away actress, 32, after she declared on Instagram she was refusing the Covid-19 vaccine.

While Seven has issued a statement saying Frost is still an employee, Koch's damning retweets have led to rumours her days at the network could be numbered.

Koch retweeted two posts that are still visible on his Twitter feed as of Wednesday.

The first tweet, by writer Jess McGuire, stated: 'This is not a real problem. If medical reasons mean you can't get vaccinated, then pro-vax advocates are trying to protect you cos everyone who can needs to get vaccinated to protect those who CAN'T.

'If you're CHOOSING not to? You're not a victim.'

The second, by Australian cabaret performer Hans the German, read: 'It's not an argument. She IS wrong. A video with vagueness about her health, dressing it up as victimhood while stoking the anti-vax flames.

'All while she's been able to work this whole time. It's a disgrace. My blood is boiling.'

Koch's retweets make clear his opinion on the matter, which is in stark contrast to the more sympathetic coverage on 7News and The Morning Show.

Entertainment reporter Peter Ford, for example, said on The Morning Show on Monday that while he disagreed with Frost's views and felt her video was misguided, he condemned the social media 'pile-on' and public shaming of her.

There's no doubt Koch's views are shared by many employees at Seven, especially in the breakfast TV division which has mandated the vaccine for all crew members.

Furthermore, a company-wide survey in August revealed that three quarters of Seven employees supported a policy of mandatory vaccination in the workplace.

There's no word yet on whether Home and Away plans to make the jab mandatory, or if such an announcement prompted Frost to release her video in the first place.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.

Frost deactivated her Instagram account on Saturday afternoon, shortly after revealing in an emotional video that she was unvaccinated and her mental health had suffered as a result of other people 'judging' her.

The actress, who has played nurse Jasmine Delaney on Home and Away since 2017, called for less judgement towards unvaccinated Australians. 

'I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing, but I feel like it's getting to a point now in the world where there's a lot of segregation,' she said. 

'There's a lot of harsh judgement and opinions being thrown around a lot and it's taking its toll on my mental health for sure, and I know people around me are struggling - particularly if they're on the side of they don't want to get vaccinated, for whatever reason.

'There are lots of different reasons why people are not getting vaccinated and it might be because of their medical history, their concerns, they might have family history, it could be religious reasons.'

Frost then said she hadn't been vaccinated, but claimed she had spoken to her medical doctor as well as a psychologist about her decision.

However, it's understood she does not have a valid medical exemption. 

She added tearfully: 'It's a really hard time to be in society right now and you feel like you are less of a human and you feel like people judge you.

'And you're too scared to talk about your opinion or your feelings and part of you wants to go, "Well, it's none of your damn business why I'm not! And there's good reasons why I'm not and I don't want you to judge me."'

She explained it was important for the unvaccinated to look after their mental health, especially as freedoms return for fully vaccinated Australians. 

'I'm struggling a lot with my mental health and I like to think that I'm pretty on to it. I see a psychologist regularly. So I can't imagine what it's like for people who don't have a support network around them,' she said.

Words: She admitted that she could 'get in trouble' for coming out publicly as unvaccinated, before urging people to treat each other with more kindness and compassion

She also said she could 'get in trouble' for coming out publicly as unvaccinated, before urging people to treat each other with more kindness and compassion.

Her video caused a great deal of controversy, mainly because of her use of the word 'segregation' when referring to the way society 'judges' unvaccinated people.

'Segregation' is typically used to describe societies that are divided due to race, religion or sexual orientation.

'Sam Frost, if you want fewer people to judge you and more people to empathise with you - maybe, just maybe don't use the word "segregation" 30 seconds into your video. This isn't 1950s Alabama. You ain't Rosa Parks,' tweeted journalist Antoinette Lattouf.

Comedian Em Rusciano tweeted: 'Watching Sam Frost tearfully speak about "segregation" because she chooses not to get vaccinated and being called "brave" by her followers is taking me to a level of "what the f**k" I didn't know was possible.' 

'It's not segregation so I would suggest you change your terminology because that is so disrespectful to people who have been segregated because their race, religion, sexual orientation,' wrote another person on Twitter.

Funnyman and The Project guest host Nazeem Hussain also tweeted: 'You know what "segregates us from each other"? Dying from Covid.

'Making yourself a victim for being unvaccinated and a reason the virus keeps killing us, is the new making yourself a victim for being called out for your racism. It's peak Australia.'

A Seven spokesperson said on Sunday: 'Seven strongly encourages vaccination for all our people and all Seven productions strictly adhere to the public health Covid-19 safe protocols.

'All Home and Away cast and crew also undertake Covid-19 testing three times a week in addition to other preventative measures.

'Sam Frost continues to work on Home and Away and follows the safety protocols in place.'

Vaccinations are vital to reducing the spread of preventable diseases, and any suggestion otherwise flies in the face of science and the advice of medical experts around the globe.

The coronavirus vaccine is a safe and vital measure being taken to protect the community from the spread of the virus.
