Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel Join the Ranks of Celebrity Anti-Vaxxers

Unfortunately, Justin Timberlake might not be as cool as we thought. Apparently, he and his wife Jessica Biel are “refusing” to vaccinate their 7-month-old son Silas, a source told In Touch.

And so, Timberlake and Biel joined the exclusive and medically discredited club of celebrity parents including most famously Jenny McCarthy, but also Jim Carrey, Jenna Elfman, Charlie Sheen, Alicia Silverstone and Kristen Cavallari. Oh and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

It’s not a widely held opinion, as it puts the child and all the kids that child interacts with at risk for all sorts of wacky things vaccines have helped eliminate. Many anti-vaxxers have changed their stance after outbreaks of measles, mumps, and rubella recently.

In Touch reportedly reached out to Timberlake and Biel’s reps nine times, but received no response from either party. Odd, since most anti-vaxxers seem to be very outspoken about their stance. Wasn’t it that you couldn’t go to school unless you’d had all your shots? That includes vaccines too, right? How does this subculture exist, do they all just go to private schools where you don’t need to do that? Are anti-vaxxers only rich people?

People who believe a tabloid like In touch magazine might be just as dumb as those who don’t vaccinate. Why would they respond to a tabloid about this then they would have to answer to every time they called.
