Our favourite Friend, Jennifer Aniston, has revealed in an InStyle Magazine interview that she’s cut ties with friends “who have refused or did not disclose” whether they had been vaccinated.
There’s no question that the COVID-19 has caused a lot of hot topic conversations between family and friends, online and in person. It seems that celebs aren’t immune to that either. Jennifer Aniston has had to make some hard decisions around her own friends.
“There’s still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don’t listen to the facts. It’s a real shame. I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate,” Aniston explained.
“It’s tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don’t feel based in anything except fear or propaganda.” She also shared that despite “news fatigue” and “panic fatigue” there are still people not listening to the facts.
The actress only joined Instagram last year, but even in her short time she’s never opted to stay quiet on her opinions about COVID-19. Last July she shared a selfie wearing a mask, writing, “I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe.”
“People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask,” she continued, “This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate.”
“If you care about human life, please… just #wearadamnmask and encourage those around you to do the same.”

Everyone needs good friends, but there is a silver lining for letting friends go, “My level of anxiety has gone down by eliminating the unnecessary sort of fat in life that I had thought was necessary,” she revealed. “Also realizing that you can’t please everybody.”
Would you “cut ties” with friends who refuse to vaccinate?
