Terry Rossio, the writer best known for “Shrek”, “Aladdin” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl” has some thoughts about vaccines. In response to a tweet of “The 100” writer Julie Benson, he regretted the situation of parents whose children have become “vaccine injuries” and compared the term “anti-wax” to the n-word. The answer has not been favorable.
“My heart goes out to all parents of injured children with vaccines, which not only have to bear the loss of sorrow, but also the vitriole of missed and insensitive people (like these). Anti-Vax corresponds to calling someone to a * *** and make such sense, “Rossio wrote which left the prevalent word uncensored.
There is no scientific evidence supporting the theory that vaccines cause autism, but the unfounded theory continues. As more and more people have been locked in anti-wax movements in recent years, outbreaks of preventable diseases such as measles have increased.
“Do you realize that you are using the equivalent of the n word” to promote memes that tag people like “anti-wax?” “Rossio asked Benson in a follow-up tweet .” Do you realize that the same collectivist stereotyping is behind belittling any group with a label? Do you have no feelings for vaccine injured children and parents? “
In 2016, Variety reported that Rossio is working on an adaptation of Andrew Wakefield’s 2010 book “Callous Disregard: Autism and Vaccines – The Truth Behind a Tragedy.” Wakefield wrote a deceptive research paper that linked measles, dust and rubella MMR) Autism 1998 vaccine, which helped launch anti-wax movement. In 2010, a General Medical Council Council found that he had “failed in his service as a responsible consultant” and acted “dishonestly and irresponsibly.” Since then, he has been discouraged from practicing medicine in Britain, and in 2016 the poorly received documentary directed “Vaxxed.”
