Jennifer Aniston Defends Herself After Saying She Has Cut Non-Vaccinated People Out Of Her Life
It’s strange how controversial the COVID-19 vaccine has become. Notice I said “strange” and not “surprising” because it’s certainly not surprising. There were anti-vax people before COVID-19, and they will be here after COVID-19.
That’s just an unfortunate reality, and just as people should be allowed to either get the vaccine or not, we should also be allowed to remove those anti-vaxxers from our life.
Jennifer Aniston recently revealed that she has cut ties with individuals in her friend group for not getting the vaccine. Of course, lots of people came after her for this comment.
Thankfully though, she’s not backing down. She replied to one comment, which read, “But if she’s vaccinated she’s protected correct? Why be worried about unvaxxed around her?”
Aniston responded with this:
Because if you have the variant, you are still able to give it to me. I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die. BUT I CAN give it to someone else who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previous existing condition) — and therefore I would put their lives at risk.
She’s not wrong. I mean, I don’t think people should be forced to get the vaccine, but I also don’t give a f**k if those same people can’t go to a restaurant because the business has decided to only serve vaccinated customers.
It’s certainly a complicated situation.
By the way, if you’re wondering the exact words Aniston used to start the drama, check out the quote below…
There’s still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don’t listen to the facts. It’s a real shame. I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate. I feel it’s your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we’re not all podded up and being tested every single day.
