EXCLUSIVE: Love & Hip Hop’s Erica Dixon Says People ‘Wished Death’ On Her Twin Daughters After She Revealed They Aren’t Vaccinated
Former “Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta” star Erica Dixon came under fire this past weekend when she revealed that she chose not to vaccinate her twin baby girls. She tweeted:
“My twins are 8 months now. Never been vaccinated and have never been sick.”
That tweet was immediately met with backlash on social media, despite her reasoning.
Erica Dixon EXCLUSIVELY detailed her anti-vaxxing journey with theJasmineBRAND. She started by expressing her surprise at the responses:
“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.”
Erica admitted that Emani, her teenaged daughter with ex-fiance Lil Scrappy, was vaccinated at the twins’ age.
“I was vaccinated as a child, [and] I started out vaccinating Emani but stopped.”
This was a decision she and the twins’ father agreed upon together:
“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.”
Erica Dixon emphasized that the bouncing baby girls will not be exiled from attending school:
“The twins will be able to attend school. You simply sign a waiver.”
The 35-year-old revealed that vaccination was presented as a choice by the twins’ pediatrician:
“I don’t know if their pediatrician agrees; she just asked whether or not we would be vaccinating.”
Here is the advice Erica Dixon would give parents who are considering evading vaccinations:
“…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.”
