He's been vocal about his difference in views with dad Piers, 55, who has led the coronavirus coverage on Good Morning Britain.
Spencer today shared statistics of the COVID-19 survival rate, adding: "Criminal that such a large portion of the general public have been tricked into being terrified of contracting this thing."
Piers shared Spencer's view with his 7.6million Twitter followers.
He told his son: "Once again, I remind you it’s not about young healthy people like you getting it… but who you/they give it to, as we are now seeing in rapidly rising & very worrying numbers in the UK."
Spencer hit back, saying: "Nothing to do with the point I was making. Wake up Piers."
It was a nod to Piers' new book about how the ‘liberal’ war on free speech is even more dangerous than COVID-19.
Spencer has insisted Brits need to "get on with life" – despite the local lockdowns happening across the country.
He said previously: "Increased testing really has exposed the lie of a Covid hasn't it. Can't believe it's actually turned out to be not much more deadly than flu, just way more contagious."
He added: "We either lockdown forever or get on with life. There is no in between at this stage. Any other measures just delay the inevitable."
However, Piers took issue with the second tweet, saying: "No. There absolutely is an in-between option: suppress the virus as best we can until there's a vaccine or drugs that stop people dying.
He even told his eldest son to "get a grip" before posting a snap of them at dinner with Spencer wearing a face mask.
Spencer had moaned on his Twitter account: "Today we bid farewell to pretty much every aspect of life that makes it worth living.
"A decision to prolong the pain and suffering being caused by this 99.5% survival rate, above life expectancy mortality rate virus for many many years.
"Enjoy the ‘new normal’, cos I won’t."
"He’s getting a grip," said Piers as they posed with The Sun's story about their argument.
