A screening of Andrew Wakefield’s documentary, Vaxxed, which exposes the CDC’s cover-up of a vaccine and autism study regarding African-Americans, has been pulled from a London cinema. The film was originally supported by Tribeca Film Festival founder and Hollywood movie star, Robert De Niro.
It was scheduled to be shown at the Curzon Cinema in Soho on February 14 but was pulled in recent days to prevent the screening from happening.
According to Daily Mail:
Dr Adam Rutherford, who has made a BBC documentary on the MMR scare, said: ‘Wakefield is a dangerous fraud, and his message and work literally threatens the health of our children.’
He thanked the cinema for their decision to pull the screening of the film.
Dr David Robert Grimes, from Oxford University, told The Times: ‘Giving this view a platform is in itself unethical. It gives the impression there is a debate where there really isn’t.’
