Leave it to Jimmy Kimmel to make controversial topics absolutely hilarious! During his latest episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 2, the funny man made his stance loud and clear about vaccinating children. Let’s just say, the people supporting the anti-vaccine movement aren’t happy.
Jimmy Kimmel Fights Anti-Vaccine Movement — Too far?
Jimmy started of his show by explaining that he’s been thinking about childhood vaccinations a lot lately. He told the audience, “I got a group of real doctors together to do a public service announcement urging parents to vaccinate, and wow did this make some people mad.” Obviously, this wouldn’t sit well with anti-vaccine supporters.
Now we all know Jimmy loves mean tweets, so during the video he reads numerous heated messages from anti-vaccine movement supporters. Yes, they’re very harsh, but being the great guy that Jimmy is, he was nice enough to leave out their names.
Some of those mean tweets included the following:
“@jimmykimmel is a pathetic f-ing human being [and] is controlled by the corporations”
“May I just say… @jimmykimel YOU ARE A F***ING PIECE OF SH*T! HOLLYWEIRD SCUMBAG! Excuse My French! DROP DEAD YOU F***ING DOUCHE BAG!!!”
“@jimmykimmel is a disgusting boil on the ass of “entertainment” IGNORANT!”
“As you see, people are taking a reasonable approach to this,” Jimmy jokingly said after the reads.
He continued to tell the camera, “Some of these people are demanding that I apologize, which I of course will not do… A lot of these groups are insisting that I present both sides of the argument, and I’m not gonna do that either… well, for the same reason that I wouldn’t present both sides if a group of people decided that pancakes make you gay — they don’t and there’s no point in discussing it.”
Jimmy Sends A Fake Anti-Vaccination Team Out To Interview Parents
Jimmy was ready to play fair with the movement supporters. Enter Jimmy’s hilarious fake anti-vaccine street team.
The host sent out Jack and Becky, a pair of community activists, to hit the pavement and chant, “A child’s right to choose.” The pair interviewed numerous parents on the street about their stance on allowing their own children the right to choose to be vaccinated. At one point the pair show these parents footage on a tablet of random children –test subjects — saying no to needles, but choosing yes to a giant lollipop.
We think Jimmy responded perfectly to the anti-vaccine supporters! Kudos for him for not backing down.
