Today in ‘Celebrity’ Stupidity

The astonishingly unfunny Rob Schneider, who kinda sorta used to be a celebrity but these days probably couldn’t wrangle a spot on Dancing With the Stars, is an anti-vaxxer. He’s now taken to harassing a state legislator who is trying to eliminate exemptions from state vaccination laws and the legislator’s response was beautifully snarky.

According to Sacramento’s ABC Channel 10 News, the actor was upbraiding state Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez about her co-sponsorship of a comprehensive childhood vaccination bill.

Gonzalez said on Facebook earlier this week, “(W)e received a phone call from Rob Schneider today where he threatened my staff that he would spend a lot of money against me because of my co-authorship of a bill to increase vaccine rates.”

She continued, “When I called him back he was actually much nicer to me, but let’s be honest…that is 20 mins of my life I’ll never get back arguing that vaccines don’t cause autism with Deuce Bigalow, male gigolo.”…

Of Schneider’s concerns, the assemblywoman said, “He just has faulty information. I told him I’d be more than happy to look at any study that’s a peer-review study, that’s scientific, to suggest the things that he was talking about. The problem is they don’t exist.”

Rob Schneider, the denianator, making stupid claims. And getting his ass handed to him.

    let’s be honest…that is 20 mins of my life I’ll never get back arguing that vaccines don’t cause autism with Deuce Bigalow, male gigolo

    That’s one of the winningest quotes I’ve ever read.

    “(W)e received a phone call from Rob Schneider today where he threatened my staff that he would spend a lot of money against me because of my co-authorship of a bill to increase vaccine rates.”

    So…an empty threat.

    Rob Schneider? … Oh, yeah, the poor man’s Adam Sandler.

    Odd. I thought Adam Sandler was the poor man’s Adam Sandler.

    Stop picking on Adam Sandler! Drunk college male morons need need something to do on a weekday evening. They can’t watch MMA or punch my mailbox all the time.

    Scientifically, there’s more likelihood that watching a Rob Schneider movie will cause autism than getting immunizations.

    Ah, “dignity”. One day, Rob. One day.

    I liked Schneider in “Down Periscope.” He played an asshole XO on a submarine. It allowed him to show his full acting range, from irritable/stupid to raging/stupid. He tried to mutiny and then ended up having to walk the plank.

    That was my third thought. The first was, Who is Rob Schneider? (The second was, Who cares who he is?)

    I assume he is going to turn in the beer cans in the garage for the deposit.

    “…he would spend a lot of money against me…”

    Where would Rob Schneider get a lot of money? Certainly not from his “acting” career.

    But the real issue here is ethics in gaming journalism.

    …sorry, I’ve just started reflexively attaching that phrase any time a woman and an idiot have a public difference of opinion.

    He is.

    Rob Schneider is the homeless man’s Adam Sandler.
