Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Erica Dixon found out the hard way that non-vaxxers get a hard shake, and has revealed that when she did announce that she has not had her twin girls vaccinated, her followers wished death on her.
"I really didn't know it was so a controversial subject. To each it's own but mine won't be vaccinated. And for those saying negative and disrespectful things – [it's] hilarious. My children would be nowhere near them or their's anyway," she told Jasmine Brand.
Erica reveals that her eldest daughter, Emani, has been vaccinated as was she, but this time around, she and the father of her beautiful girls did some research and decided against it.
"The twins father is vegan. He definitely is against the twins getting vaccinated. I went vegan prior to my pregnancy and throughout as well…I did some research and asked questions as they saw their pediatrician…My research consisted of reading about both vaccinated and unvaccinated children, [and] how it would affect them when it came to daycare and school, side effects, risks etc."
Despite facing the wrath of social media, Erica is still encouraging new moms who decide not to vaccinate their children to stand by their decision.
"…I stand with you. Everyone is free to form their own decision when it comes to their children…We have to learn to agree to disagree without being disrespectful. Especially those that wish death on my children because they aren't vaccinated. I would never wish death on anyone's child – vaccinated or not. Then again, the internet gives a lot of people heart because they wouldn't dare say half of what that say via social media to my face."
