Jenny McCarthy Criticized on Twitter

Jenny McCarthy got an unexpected series of tweets when she asked the question: what do you look for in a mate?

The responses varies from the downright sarcastic and hostile to the slightly offbeat and funny. One of the responses was “Somebody who gets that refusing vaccines because of toxins and then shilling for e-cigs makes you a pathetic hypocrite.” 

Another one said that “someone who thinks that vaccines are safe.” Jenny has not responded to the barrage of tweets yet. Jenny is one of the people who believe that getting your kids vaccinated against polio and measles results in those kids becoming autistic later on. 

Although this is a controversial theory, many people are actually not getting their babies inoculated. Jay Cutler’s wife has done the same thing regarding their son. 

Actually, the issue is McCarthy’s own 11 year old son, Evan who was diagnosed with autism recently. And she is very outspoken about the fact. Jenny also made a poignant statement in Larry King Live about half a decade ago. 

Jenny McCarthy said that the shots contained mercury. And she furthermore spoke of how although it was said that the mercury had been removed from the vaccines in fact it had not been removed. Jenny also said that in earlier times there used to be 10 shots per child and now it was 36. 

Jenny McCarthy spoke of how the increase in number of shots had taken place at the exact time when the number of autistic children skyrocketed. This was a clear sign that vaccinations were responsible for autistic behavior in children. 

However, what Jenny doesn’t realize is that correlation doesn’t imply causation. The link between the two factors – vaccinations and autism – could just be an illusion of correlation after all. 

Maybe, those who were critical of Jenny on Twitter had a right to be. After all, all those African babies whose lives are being saved by vaccinations are proof of the necessity of getting inoculated.
