Say it ain't so, Jessica Biel.
The actress and mom stunned fans this week when she revealed that she's joined the ever-growing army of meme-wielding Aunt Karens who believe that vaccinating children leads to autism.
Rumors that Biel is an anti-vaxxer have been circulating for years, but the mother of one and wife of Justin Timberlake never went public with her foolishness until this week.
The actress is joined in her campaign of dangerous idiocy by "environmental activist" Robert F. Kennedy, a guy who really has no leg to stand on when it comes to matters of familial longevity.
Biel and Kennedy joined together on Tuesday to announce that they'll be lobbying against a bill that would limit medical exemptions from vaccinations.
Biel, who welcomed son Silas in 2015, has long been the subject of anti-vaxx speculation.
“She feels that vaccination could cause complications,” a source told In Touch Weekly shortly after the birth of Jessica's son.
It's a shockingly common stance among celebrities, and Biel joins the likes of tattoo Nazi Kat Von D and Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry on the list of moms who hope to bring about the End Times by using their children to usher in a measles epidemic.
Junk science and Hollywood have always gone hand-in-hand, of course.
But by joining forces with fellow dumbass RFK Jr. Jessica just became the
Kennedy's father, of course, took on Jimmy Hoffa and the mob only to be struck down in his prime by an assassin's bullet.
Junior is taking on science and common sense, apparently in the hope that it'll be easier for his grandsons to earn spots on their high school basketball teams due to the deaths of half their classmates.
In comments made on Tuesday, Kennedy stopped just short of confirming that Biel is an anti-vaxxer:
“I would say that she was for safe vaccines and for medical freedom,” Kennedy said before issuing a dog whistle to his fellow morons with the anti-vaxx rallying cry, “My body, my choice.”
Yeah, no. That argument absolutely makes sense when it comes to matters like abortion.
But when your dumb decisions threaten the future of humanity, the rest of us are obliged to try and shame you into doing the right thing.
We'd say you send Biel a message by boycotting her movies, but a Jessica Biel flick opening wide seems about as likely as proof that vaccines cause autism.
