Jim Carrey has once again used his fame to speak up for a cause he believes in, attacking Big Pharma and the U.S government.
Carrey has made a name for himself in the activism world in recent years, and he has again spoke out against a cause which he believes in.
He has recently criticized the government for enforcing vaccines on children, despite being pro-vaccines himself, he disagrees with the strict rules about the vaccinating of children.
In July 2015 Carey took to Twitter and called Governor Jerry Brown of California a ‘corporate fascist’ after he approved legislation to make vaccines mandatory.
Carrey’s relationship with anti-vaxer Jenny McCarthy who believes her son developed autism as a result of a vaccine has no doubt strenghtened his position for the cause.
“There is no question that many of these vaccines have been among the greatest medical advancements in history.
There is also no question that vaccines can and do injure people as the hundreds of millions of dollars awarded in vaccine court have proved.”
He has also highlighted the case of the Center for Disease Control and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson who exposed over 100,000 documents which showed the CDC manipulated data showing the negative effect vaccines have on African-American children.
Lastly, Carrey has spoken out against the money-driven relationship between BigPharma and the U.S government, stating:
“Over the past 20 or so years, pharmaceutical companies have given nearly $300 million to candidates for federal office, spent almost $200 million influencing California state elections, and have amassed over $3 billion in fees for high-powered lobbyists in Washington.” highlighting the way in which illness and the drugs to cure them are treated as a business, rather than the life-saving service they ought to be.
