Robert De Niro Continues To Defend Controversial Anti-Vaccination Documentary

Robert De Niro defended the controversial anti-vaccination documentary “Vaxxed” throughout a Wednesday look on the “Today” present. 

Directed by disgraced anti-vax physician Andrew Wakefield, the documentary was pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival after its preliminary inclusion sparked backlash. 

“I assume the film is one thing that folks ought to see,” De Niro, who co-based the pageant in 1988, stated. “There was a backlash that I have not absolutely explored, and I will, however I did not need it to start out affecting the pageant in ways in which I could not see.” 

The actor added that there “was undoubtedly one thing to that film,” earlier than naming one other movie, “Trace Amounts,” that focuses on allegedly excessive mercury ranges in vaccines.

“There’s a number of details about issues which might be occurring with the CDC, the pharmaceutical corporations. There’s a whole lot of issues that aren’t stated,” De Niro stated. “I, as a mum or dad of a kid who has autism, I’m involved. And I need to know the reality.” 

De Niro reiterated that he’s not towards vaccines usually and that he merely needs “protected vaccines.” The actor added, after publicly confirming his 18-yr-previous son has autism, that he may probably be part of a bigger dialog surrounding autism. 

“To shut [the documentary] down, there is no cause to. If you are scientists, let’s hear, let’s examine. Everybody does not appear to need to hear a lot about it,” De Niro stated, earlier than calling on “Today” present hosts Willie Geist and Savannah Guthrie “to do the investigating.” 

At the top of his speak, De Niro conceded that he is “not so positive about” the movie’s director, Andrew Wakefield. Wakefield’s documentary incorrectly asserts that the D.R. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention organized a conspiracy to cowl up rising autism analysis charges allegedly brought on by childhood vaccinations.
