TOP STORY: Jessica Biel Comes Out As An Anti-Vax Activist
Teaming up with Robert Kennedy Jr., actress Jessica Biel, who has a son with husband Justin Timberlake, revealed herself to be a staunch anti-vax supporter. She appeared at the California State Assembly to lobby against SB 276, which limits the amount of medical exemptions from vaccinations without approval from a state public health officer. While speaking with The Daily Beast RFK Jr. said “I would say that [Biel] was for safe vaccines and for medical freedom.”
When RFK Jr. was asked about the recent measles outbreak he added, “The measles epidemic has almost nothing to do with unvaccinated children. The biggest problem with the bill, which is something I think Jessica is concerned with,” Kennedy said, “is that a doctor who has made a determination – if he has found children in this state whose doctors have determined that they’re too fragile to receive vaccinations — this bill would overrule the doctors and force them to be vaccinated anyways.”
Leah Russin, executive director of Vaccinate California, who co-sponsors the bill counters that his statements couldn’t be further from the truth. “The children who need medical exemptions will not have a problem getting them if SB 276 becomes law,” she said. “People who are on immuno-suppressant drugs will not have a problem getting a medical exemption—and in fact, the people who truly need medical exemptions desperately need everyone else to be vaccinated. That’s why they support this bill. Medical advice should be coming from medical professionals.”
Learning the actress who once complained she was turned down from roles for being “too sexy” sent the Internet into a tizzy of disappointment and calling for her to be cancelled.
CELEBS on SOCIAL MEDIA: It was Pam Vs. Jim from ‘The Office’ During the Stanley Cup Playoffs
Jenna Fischer, best known as Pam from The Office, and a huge St. Louis Blues fan, shared a rivalry with John Krasinski, who played Pam’s husband Jim on the popular NBC series, and is a diehard Boston Bruins fan.
While Krasinski was able to be at the game in person, he hilariously rubbed it in Fischer’s face by posting an “I’m sorry you’re not here” video message on Instagram that featured his surprise date to the game, David Denman, who played Roy on The Office, Pam’s other on-screen love interest.
The Blues ended up absolutely routing the Bruins in Boston for Game 7, and Fischer ultimately got the last laugh. While blasting the Blues’ winning theme song “Gloria,” she tagged Krasinski in a video as she finished frosting a blue and yellow celebration cake after her team won the Cup.
