Earlier this week, we learned that if Jennifer Aniston was living her life by the lyrics of the Friends theme, then the chorus of “I’ll be there for you” came with one post-pandemic condition, and that’s that Jennifer will be there for you, so long as you’ve gotten the COVID-19 vaccine. Jennifer explained to InStyle that she had to lose a couple of people from her orbit who wouldn’t disclose whether they got the vaccine, as well as the ones who are anti-vaxx. There might have been a few people who thought that was way harsh, Jen. But she’s fully standing by her choice to roll with a vaxxed-only crowd from here on out.
Either Jennifer or her social media assistant read her comments, including the ones blasting and questioning her choice. Jennifer responded in an Instagram Story, which included a frowny-face emoji and the caption, “These comments.” She followed that up with a sample of such comments, in which an Instagram user pondered: “But if she’s vaccinated she’s protected correct? Why be worried about unvaxxed around her?” Jennifer could have pointed that easily confused soul towards the direction of the nearest search engine, medical professional, or easy-to-read pamphlet titled: Explaining Vaccine Efficacy to Kids. Instead, Jennifer stood her ground and explained why she’s not fucking around with those who refuse to get vaccinated:
She also broke down the reason why it’s important for people who can get the vaccine, to get that vaccine. Because some people can’t get the vaccine (due to age, medical reasons, or those with autoimmune issues), therefore everyone should be looking out for those people. I’ll blame Jennifer’s idealistic outlook on humanity on the fact that she’s only been on Instagram for less than two years. That’s probably why she took the time to calmly explain her commitment and faith in vaccines, rather than just jumping into the comments and replying, “And?? Go pick a fight with Jameela Jamil, she loves that shit.”
