Robert De Niro has been forced to explain his anti-vaccine views amid a huge media storm about claims that they cause autism. 

Various media outlets have condemned Andrew Wakefield’s documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe – screened during the Tribeca Film Festival – of which Robert De Niro is co-founder.

In a personal statement he defended his choice to screen the film:

Grace [Hightower] and I have a child with autism and we believe it is critical that all of the issues surrounding the causes of autism be openly discussed and examined“.

Truthkings.com reports:

Tribeca Enterprises’ SVP of Communications sent us the following response directly from De Niro and his wife, Grace.

“Grace and I have a child with autism and we believe it is critical that all of the issues surrounding the causes of autism be openly discussed and examined.

In the 15 years since the Tribeca Film Festival was founded, I have never asked for a film to be screened or gotten involved in the programming.

However this is very personal to me and my family and I want there to be a discussion, which is why we will be screening VAXXED. I am not personally endorsing the film, nor am I anti-vaccination; I am only providing the opportunity for a conversation around the issue.”

Wakefield’s film has been the subject of mainstream scrutiny ever since Tribeca revealed its intention to premiere the movie.

  1. Autism is 100% genetic and not caused by vaccines. ….when will people get the message, genetic!!!

  2. Colin Rider Colin Rider says:

    If it’s only genetic why has the rate of Autism skyrocketed in the last few decades alone. Mathematically your argument doesn’t hold
