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.
