Comedian Jim Carrey has been tweeting a lot about vaccines and it’s no joke. Carrey says he’s not anti-vaccine, he’s pro-vaccine. What he is anti-mercury, anti-thermasol. He recently wrote: “All we are saying is, ‘Take the neurotoxins out of the vaccines.’ Make them toxin free. History will show that that was a reasonable request.” Many critics say Carrey’s claims about vaccines are rooted in bad science which links vaccinations to autism.
While the vaccination debate continues, there is good news for fans of Jim Carrey, the comedic actor. He’s working on a new movie called The Bad Batch. It’s described as “a dystopian love story in a Texas wasteland and set in a community of cannibals.” Carrey co-stars with Jason Momoa (leading man cannibal), Keanu Reeves and Suki Waterhouse. Carrey will play The Hermit. The Bad Batch, which is being produced by VICE, will be in theatres in 2016.
