4:25 PM PT -- Now, here's an interesting take from one Selma Blair -- who tells us she doesn't mind Rob Schneider having reservations about the vaccine(s) ... but still supports getting them.
We ran into the actress Saturday in L.A., where we asked her what she made of Rob's controversial comments about a potential third jab that may start to be recommended soon. Considering she has a medical history that puts her immune system at risk ... Selma's response is telling.
For starters, she notes this a minefield of an issue to discuss -- and that she doesn't want to write off or discount some may have about the COVID vaccine or others ... as she notes that her own flesh and blood -- her kid, no less -- had a scare with one at birth. So, she gets it.
That said, Selma tells us she got her COVID vaccine ... despite people jumping down her throat telling her she was especially at risk due to her condition. She still did it though, and doesn't seem to regret the decision. Her parting sentiment seems to be ... to each their own.
Rob Schneider seems to be saying the best way to ward off the COVID vaccine is with an old Nancy Reagan campaign on drugs -- and if that doesn't work ... maybe flash some ammo.
The actor -- known for comedic roles in Adam Sandler movies, etc. -- was in no joking mood Saturday upon hearing some news that a third vaccine jab might be around the corner ... as reports surface that the effects from the first 2 are wearing off in a matter of months.
He was responding to a report with the headline, "Is it already time for a 3rd Covid-19 shot?" posted by journo Sharyl Attkisson. Rob retweeted it and wrote, "Just say no... And keep saying no..."
RS added this as well ... "Over Half of the US population is continuing to say no to this unapproved experimental gene therapy! 'My body, my choice!' #2ndAmendmentIsForThis."
Is comedic actor Rob Schneider suggesting Americans shoot COVID-19 with guns rather than simply get the safe and effective vaccines developed to help protect themselves and their communities https://t.co/Xr0KjrsvYj
Of course, his remarks are getting tons of backlash right now -- as he appears to be suggesting that Americans should take up arms ... against COVID jabs, or the notion of being forced to get them. Some are saying his thinking here is flawed ... and pretty dangerous.
No matter, though -- Rob seems to be digging his heels in on his position ... rehashing what sure sounds like far-right wing talking points, spreading fear and doubt about vaccines.
Our Government has told us they plan on going to OUR FRONT DOOR with this. They have lied, had a 2 year fear campaign and lockdown, destroyed middle class household incomes, bankrupted untold thousands of businesses and are now putting children’s lives at risk. https://t.co/TWHdquR8Hv
