Earlier this week, Jennifer Aniston revealed she has been cutting out friends from her life who have refused to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
And now the Friends star is hitting back at those who are judging her for the decisions she's making...
Taking to her Instagram stories, the actress, fifty-two, hit back against a commenter who was curious as to why she was so concerned about being around her unvaccinated friends.
"But if she's vaccinated she's protected correct? Why to be worried about unvaxxed around her?" wrote the commenter.
Jennifer responded: "Because if you have. the variant, you are still able to give it to me. I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die. BUT I CAN give it to someone else who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previously existing condition)- and therefore I would put their lives at risk. THAT is why I worry. We have to care about more than just ourselves here."
Jennifer was clearly disheartened by the comments on a recent photo.
The actress also shared a humorous photo of a cross-stitch embroidered with the message: "What doesn't kill you mutates and tries again."
Jen revealed in the September issue of InStyle that she has been forced to cut friends from her circle who have "refused" to get their Covid-19 vaccine, explaining that she had no time for anti-vaxxers or those who: "Just don't listen. to the facts."
There's a swarm of propoganda when it comes to the vaccine, and it's exactly why people don't want to get the vaccine, Jennifer thinks.
She admitted that she's stopped watching the news as much recently because it's just so negative.
"I've really had to stop [keeping it on too much],' she said of watching CNN. 'We all went through news fatigue, panic fatigue, during the pandemic because we were hoping one day we would wake up and hear something hopeful, and all we got was more insanity."
"[There's] still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don't listen to the facts. It's a real shame,' Aniston said. 'I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate."
She added: "I feel it's your moral and professional obligation to inform since we're not all podded up and being tested every single day. It's tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don't feel based in anything except fear or propaganda."
"If you care about human life, please... just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same," Jennifer wrote in the post that prompted criticism.
