I didn’t even need to read the full headline to agree with everyone giving Jessica Biel a hard time for her stance on vaccinations. I’ve long known it’s not the right match between Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake. If it couldn’t possibly be me, she just wouldn’t have been my pick for him. Nothing really against Jessica Biel at all, she’s just not my type of celebrity woman crush. For someone like JT, I have the highest standards. Truthfully I don’t know if anyone would have been good enough for my Justin, but I don’t hate to see people mad at Jessica Biel.
In doing only a slight amount of research, it appears everyone has cancelled Jessica Biel because she is an anti-vaxxer. She then came back and clarified in an eloquent Instagram post that “I am not against vaccinations — I support children getting vaccinations and I also support families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians. My concern with #SB276 is solely regarding medical exemptions.”

This week I went to Sacramento to talk to legislators in California about a proposed bill. I am not against vaccinations — I support children getting vaccinations and I also support families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians. My concern with #SB276 is solely regarding medical exemptions. My dearest friends have a child with a medical condition that warrants an exemption from vaccinations, and should this bill pass, it would greatly affect their family’s ability to care for their child in this state. That’s why I spoke to legislators and argued against this bill. Not because I don’t believe in vaccinations, but because I believe in giving doctors and the families they treat the ability to decide what’s best for their patients and the ability to provide that treatment. I encourage everyone to read more on this issue and to learn about the intricacies of #SB276. Thank you to everyone who met with me this week to engage in this important discussion!
I have no political or legal intelligence to form a stance on any legislation but the damage was already done for Jessica. Once people see the headline or the tweet, you live with that image your whole life. People with blue check marks already took her out of the list of top ranked Jessica’s.
1) Jessica Chastain
2) Jessica Alba
3) Jessica Spano
4) Jessica Rabbit
11) Jessica Simpson
unranked: Jessica Biel

No idea if Jessica Biel’s opinions on vaccinations are wrong or not, but once you’re attached to the anti-vaxx crowd, there’s no coming back. It could be an episode of Black Mirror. Public opinion has already turned on Jessica, and you just really hate to see it. It would be a real shame if Justin Timberlake became single again just saying.
JESSICA BIEL ISN’T AN EXPERT OR AUTHORITY ON VACCINATIONS. CONSULT AN ACTUAL DOCTOR. pic.twitter.com/yyu2xDDF4Y

What did Jessica Biel do that could get someone to cape for her right now? Big 7th Heaven fan? Love that GQ cover from 10 years ago? I am now out of things I remember her being in

The problem with Jessica Biel coming out as an anti-vaxxer is not that she’s not a doctor, it’s that she’s not even qualified to play a doctor on TV

Vaccines definitely work. Movie theaters were vaccinated against Jessica Biel back in 2012 and look. They worked.
