In this interview on the Today Show, actor Robert De Niro comments on the decision to pull the anti-vaccination film “Vaxxed” from the Tribeca Film Festival. De Niro, who as an autistic son says there are a lot of things happening with the CDC and pharmaceutical companies. He tells the Today show hosts that they, the media should be doing their jobs and investigate these vaccines.
De Niro says that no one is looking into why children are getting autism. He is upset and somewhat regrets pulling the film. Apparently other film makers had said they would pull their films if Vaxxed was allowed to be shown. He says, “I think the movie is something that people should see,” and he questions statistics on vaccine-preventable diseases.
