Kailyn Lowry isn’t one to keep her opinions to herself, but this time fans are concerned that she really went too far. The tattoo-covered Teen Mom star is notoriously anti-vaccination, and she shares plenty of anti-vax content on her social media.
What set fans off this time is an Instagram post that compared vaccinations to mass murder. They were livid about the nature of the post and felt the implications are more harmful than she intended.
Kailyn Lowry’s anti-vaccination stance has been a difficult topic for fans, and this time she may have lost more fans than she bargained for.
Her anti-vax lifestyle has raised concerns over her children’s safety in the past. When Kailyn first had Isaac and Lincoln, she made an incredibly controversial decision to not vaccinate her children. Shortly after Lincoln’s birth, Kailyn opened up about her decision. “We aren’t vaccinating,” she tweeted, adding that her children could still attend school if they “fill out a specific form.”
Soon after the birth of her third child, Lux, Kailyn doubled down on her anti-vaxxing ways and confirmed as of Lux turning 18 months that he was not vaccinated.
Kailyn later took to her podcast, Coffee Convos, to clarify her choice:
“I definitely think this is a controversial topic, and I don’t want to lose listeners because of my opinion — but, I did vaccinate Isaac, because to me, I didn’t know any better, and I gave — I let them vaccinate him with whatever they basically said that he needed. And I feel like I was ignorant, and didn’t do research, and didn’t know any better.
With Lincoln, I knew a little bit more, and I started to research more, and that’s when I think the conversations of vaccines started to really be going on with me and my friends that became moms. And there were documentaries on Netflix, and all kinds of, just, news that I would try to look into. Lincoln did not get all of his vaccines. I definitely picked and chose which ones I felt like were necessary, and he did not get them all at once. So, he did one or two vaccines at a time. And again, those were the ones that I felt that he needed.
Lux is 18 months and he is not vaccinated. He hasn’t ever really been sick, and for me, I just think the more research that I do, and the more educated I’ve become, I just don’t vaccinate him. So, that’s my opinion, and I don’t judge Lindsie if she chooses to vaccinate, or anyone else who chooses to vaccinate — that’s your prerogative. You’re a parent, you know what’s best for your child, and I’m not here to judge.”
On the show, Kailyn even revealed she refuses to even let her ex-husband Javi Marroquin give their son Lincoln a flu vaccine.
She said, “[Javi] texted me asking me how I felt about Lincoln getting a flu shot because I guess he told me that Lauren is a big believer in vaccines. So, I said ‘Whatever you guys choose to do with your son is fine, but my son’s not getting the flu vaccine.’”
Kail stirred up this discussion among her fans yet again by sharing anti-vax rhetoric on her Instagram story.
“Aluminium safe limit set by FDA: 25MCG. Vaccine delivery of aluminum by 18 months: 4,925MCG. How is this safe?” Fans questioned this “fact,” but the controversy quickly subsided as it usually does.
