#AskJenny Twitter Hashtag Trolls Anti-Vaxxer Jenny McCarthy With Reality
Sometimes I try to feel sorry for Jenny McCarthy because of all the hate unleashed against her for her staunch anti-vaccination stance, but more and more, it seems like she is just asking for it.
Just a short week ago, Jenny asked a totally rando question to her 1.13 million Twitter followers:
“What is the most important personality trait you look for in a mate? Reply using #JennyAsks.”
Jenny’s not-so-loyal Twitter followers took this perfect opportunity to come down on her for her super-controversial anti-vaccination beliefs. Since 2005, Jenny has made headlines by speaking out against vaccines that she believed caused autism in her son. Now, Jenny has tried to turn the tide by declaring that she is not anti-vaccine, but the damage has already been done.
Jenny can’t seem to step outside of the box she created for herself in the anti-vaxx movement. Twitter users started #AskJenny by responding to her silly question about what you look for in a mate:
“Someone who vaccinates.”
Burn! Sorry, Jenny, but most concerned parents would say that you had it coming. Evidenced by the growing hilarity of #AskJenny, the Twitterverse wants Jenny to answer for her crazy declarations that have been made over the years, with absolutely no basis in science.
Poor, poor Jenny McCarthy. She’s been out-trolled by Twitter with a hefty dose of reality:
Some may call them haters, others may call them educated Twitter users. Nonetheless, Jenny McCarthy has some ‘splaining to do. It’s one thing to speak out for your beliefs, but Jenny made a grave misstep when she spoke out without fully researching her cause. She may have buyer’s remorse all these years later, but she’s finding it almost impossible to change her reputation after coming out as anti-vaxx in 2005.
