In today's super-niche beauty drama we're weirdly invested in, people are calling for a boycott of Kat Von D Beauty after the pregnant beauty mogul announced she will not be vaccinating her child.
In a lengthy Instagram posted earlier this week, Von D wrote, "I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice. Some good and some questionable - unsolicited none the less."
She continued, "And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you - try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations. "
Von D has never been one to shy away from her opinion-the beauty mogul is openly anti-Trump and even allegedly disqualified a contest winner in 2017 after discovering her political views. So fans aren't taking her vaccination stance lightly-since the post went live, people have flooded the comment sections with outrage. The general consensus? People are threatening a boycott of Kat Von D Beauty. The news has also made its way to Twitter:
Officially done with kat von d and her brand 🤷🏻♀️ terribly sad, but can’t support someone who risks other kids lives for what? To be vegan? To be natural and different from the masses? Not cool 🙄#boycottkatvond- Princess 💕 (@Sammy_lord13) June 9, 2018
Thankfully theres just as good (and less expensive) beauty brands I will give my money to. Anti-vaxing is a terrible choice. #boycottkatvond- HeatherC (@smile4hxc) June 12, 2018
TBD on how this will actually affect business. Kat Von D Beauty has yet to release a comment, but we'll be sure to update this post with any developments.
