Kailyn Lowry – much like every other celebrity on the planet – has been tweeting about the novel coronavirus. COVID-19 was confirmed as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization this week. While the “Teen Mom 2” star’s Delaware location doesn’t put her in a giant hotspot, Kailyn has acknowledged that she and her family are at risk.
Kailyn is, of course, currently pregnant with her her fourth boy. Her recent tweet mentioned 10-year-old son Isaac. You can see it below.
Kail’s tweet seemed heartfelt and not out to cause any provocation. The Pothead haircare founder appeared saddened that her eldest son is now worried about the virus, but replies coming in mentioned Kailyn being an anti-vaxxer – pharmaceutical companies are currently racing against the clock to develop a vaccine for COVID-19.
“He should be worried about a lot of things if you didn’t vaccinate him,” a user responded, with Kail basically then telling the fan to get lost.
The interaction quickly made its way over the Reddit.
The Reddit thread centering around Kailyn’s tweet brought in many mentions of infant vaccination.
Over 200 users upvoted the following reply.
“Politely vaccinate your children because the stress you are feeling now is exactly what the parents of children with compromised immune systems feel daily.”
A response then came in:
“This is why it blows my mind that people don’t vaccinate their children. Oh so your kid is scared? Imagine what it must feel like for my sister who has cancer during FLU SEASON because people refuse to get the flu shot. That measles outbreak that happened last year was f*cking terrifying for our family because she was in the middle of treatment.”
A popular reply saw a user point out the risks of opting out of infant vaccinations.
“Her kids should be worried about Mumps, Measles, Rubella, Diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, Chickenpox, Polio and the Rotavirus.
So of course she not worried about corona, its the least of her worries. Kids have been proven to be more immune then adults,” the user wrote.
Kailyn has compared vaccines to the Holocaust.
She then clarified: “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.”
Kailyn has faced an immense wave of backlash since her February 4 pregnancy announcement – some might say unfairly-so. Trolls have been slamming the MTV face for already having three baby daddies, although Kailyn herself appears to have been both handling her pregnancy well and ensuring she claps back to the haters.
Kailyn did, however, delete her nude pregnancy photo earlier this month – the unclothed snap of Kailyn rocking her bump while posing by a horse was caught by The Blast as it generated backlash.
