BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Last week, Kat Von D, the famous tattoo artist, managed to rile up her fans after writing on her Instagram account that she’s not going to vaccinate her unborn child. And now, a beauty blogger tears down Kat von D’s intention of raising a ‘natural and vegan child’ sharing a picture of her son struggling with measles.
Beauty Blogger Claims Vaccine Could have Ended Her Child’s Ordeal
Celebrated ink artist Kat Von D received her fair share if public backlash after she announced on Instagram that she has no intention to vaccinate her child. More that, according to Von D’s post, the infant will be born via a “drug-free” and midwife/doula home birth and in water, on top of that.
Of course, comments came pouring down like Hellfire as soon as Von D hit the ‘publish’ button. As expected, most commenters criticized the artist’s life choices, calling her post embarrassing. Others said that people making the same choices as Kat Von D puts even more lives at risk.
A commenter, who goes by the name of abonvil wrote that her choice to be openly anti-vaccines puts immunocompromised patients at risks such as small children or the elderly.
I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice. Some good and some questionable – unsolicited none the less. I also was prepared for the backlash and criticism we would get if we decided to be open about our personal approach to our pregnancy. My own Father flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead. If you don’t know what it’s like have people around you think you are ridiculous, try being openly vegan. And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you – try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations. My point being: I already know what it’s like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority. So your negative comments are not going influence my choices – actual research and educating myself will – which i am diligently doing. This is my body. This is our child. And this is our pregnancy journey. Feel free to follow me on here if you like what I’m about – whether it’s tattooing, lipstick, Animal Rights, sobriety, feminism, ridiculous gothiness, black flower gardening, cats, or my adorable husband. But if you don’t dig a certain something about what I post, i kindly ask that you press the unfollow button and move the fuck on. So before anyone of you feel inspired to tell me how to do this, I would appreciate you keeping your unsolicited criticism to yourself. More importantly, for those who have amazing positive energy to send my way, I will gladly and graciously receive it with love! X
However, Caroline Hirons, a well-known beauty blogger, dropped the proverbial microphone after she shared a photo of her 23-year-old son. Hirons said that when her son was little, he got the measles. She also said that the disease weakened him up to the point of being carried to the hospital by two ambulances.
The beauty blogger explained that her son was dehydrated and withering away. It took four IV bags to rehydrate the child. To end her post, Hirons wrote that a simple vaccine could have spared her child of having to fight for his life.
