The anti-vaccine, or anti-vaxer movement has been gaining a ton of steam over the last few years, thanks in large part to misinformation and outright lies. It’s a safe assumption that if there weren’t some famous people who were pushing their own agendas, it wouldn’t be as popular as it is. Sadly, there are more than a few famous people who have been claiming they have the real story when it comes to vaccines and the rather nasty side effects that can come from giving them to your kids. The problem is that most of the claims that vaccines are causing all kinds of problems are not supported by any kind of facts. Instead, these celebs are both feeding off of and feeding into the hysteria that can be spread by Internet rumors. Check out our list of 10 of the most shockingly notorious celebs who are anti-vaxxers and tell us what you think about this group.
Kirstie Alley was among a number of celebs against California’s passage of a vaccination bill. While she claimed she was really just for the parent’s right to choose, she also tweeted out that not all vaccines are safe and parents should be able to choose after reading up.
Rob Schneider was so against the California vaccination bill that he got into a confrontation with a state assemblywoman. During the confrontation, the legislator shot back that she would be happy to review any scientific articles that were considered respectable claiming vaccines were harmful.
