Though news outlets like to call out vaccine hesitancy among the general population as “anti-science,” Hollywood figures’ hypocritical messaging to get the vaxx without getting it themselves has been more predictable than any Marvel movie ending.
Americans with a mind of their own don’t wait on celebrities to make personal decisions. But for those who do look to the stars for direction, here is a list of ten celebrities who are against getting inoculated, per MSN:
1. Robert De Niro
The mobster movie icon has been enjoying the latter end of his career nabbing award nominations and armchair quarterbacking the former Trump administration like a true elite.
Despite being able to promote every talking point from the Left with ease, De Niro draws the line when it comes to promoting everyone get shot up with the vaccine.
“There’s a lot of information about things that are happening with the CDC, the pharmaceutical companies, there’s a lot of things that are not said. I, as a parent of a child who has autism, I’m concerned. And I want to know the truth.” He added: “I’m not anti-vaccine. I want safe vaccines.”
One-third of the Migos hip-hop triplet, rapper Offset has garnered most of his headlines lately due to his on-and-off relationship with fellow artist Cardi B — which means that he likely has a stronger immune system than any vaccine could offer.
3. Jim Carrey
Jim Carrey has seemingly spiraled into madness that makes him seem like a full-blown Ace Ventura. Like ex-wife Jenny McCarthy, Carrey’s “wait and see” approach about getting vaxxed overpowers the liberal script he’s been handed for years.
“In this growing crisis, we cannot afford to blindly trumpet the agenda of the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) or vaccine makers. Now more than ever, we must resist the urge to close this book before it’s been written.”
4. Letitia Wright
Letitia Wright is a rising star who emerged from a mediocre Marvel blockbuster in Black Panther. Wright has been outspoken on a range of topics you normally don’t hear from names trying to make it in Hollywood — including her Christian faith — which makes it no surprise that she thoughtfully addressed personal concerns over taking the vaccine.
“I don’t understand vaccines medically, but I’ve always been a little bit of a skeptic of them.”
5. Jessica Biel
To put it plainly: actress Jessica Biel can do as actress Jessica Biel desires.
“I am not against vaccinations – I support children getting vaccinations and I also support families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians.”
6. Kat Von D
Judging by the celebrity tattoo artist’s history, her issue isn’t with needles as much as it is sticking to a personal decision. And rumor has it that she’s vegan …
“Try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations.”
7. Anwar Hadid
Anwar may be another celebrity eating off the success of his family’s surname and making headlines for dating hot women in Hollywood but … wait, that’s actually it.
8. Rob Schneider
Rob Schneider has recently been branded as an anti-lib guy for appearing on platforms that encourage free thought, but the veteran actor’s vaccine stance is more of a hesitancy with the potential side effects.
“The doctors are not gonna tell you both sides of the issue … they’re told by the pharmaceutical industry, which makes billions of dollars, that it’s completely safe. The toxicity of these things – we’re having more and more side effects. We’re having more and more autism.”
9. Alicia Silverstone
The Clueless star of the 90s questions the vaccine, due to her experience as a pregnant mother, and the miracle drug’s long-term effects.
“There has not been a conclusive study of the negative effects of such a rigorous one-size-fits-all, shoot-’em-up schedule.”
10. Jenny McCarthy
Ex-wife of Jim Carrey and wellness guru Jenny McCarthy is more willing to inject tea tree oil into her system than any type of medication.
And it’s kinda working.
