Parents Attacked by Anti-Vaxxers for Posting Sponsored Content of Kids Getting Vaccinated

By

Anti-vaxxers are bold. They're flipping off doctors in hospitals who are trying to do what's best for their patients, and they're even refusing to vaccinate their pets. It's getting out of control. Now, anti-vaxxers are going after parents who vaccinate their children and post about it in sponsored content on social media.

BuzzFeed News reports that parents who are influencers on Instagram were offered money to promote a Walgreens flu vaccine campaign. These parents posted pictures of themselves and their children with bright red adhesive bandages on their arms and write sponsored posts promoting the flu vaccine. Almost all of them have started to receive threatening, vitriolic messages from anti-vaccine activists, so much so that they have disabled the comments on their posts.
