We in no way want the domain of the anti-vaccination movement to be something hinged on celebrity culture’s stances. But it is difficult to ignore just how much influence exists in this realm. Recently, both Chloe Sevigny and Russell Simmons have made rather large statements leaning towards the vaccination movement. Now people are wondering if Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are near doing the same.
Timberlake and Biel have been notoriously private over the years. Biel does post Instagrams with their 7-month old son, Silas, but neither are incredibly sociopolitical figures. However, an article published in In Touch has led many to wonder what the couple’s stance on vaccination actually is. In the article, a friend of Biel’s claims she is refusing to vaccinate Silas for fear of complications.
A friend of the couple claims so, telling In Touch that “Jessica is refusing to vaccinate him. She feels that vaccination could cause complications.”
Its important to realize that no one, including Vaxxter, is basing the movement of anti-vaccination on celebrity support. However, it is important to accept the reality that celebrities have the ability to bring awareness and influence people to give a second thought to an issue. If this were to pan out, it would likely be a huge step in the right direction.
