Dutch model Doutzen Kroes is anti-vaxx: ‘I will not be forced to take the shot’

Doutzen KroesCINEMA : 72 eme Festival de Cannes - Red Carpet du film once upo

Doutzen Kroes used to be one of my favorite models. She’s beautiful and Dutch and a mom of two kids under the age of 10. As it turns out, Doutzen is also an anti-vaxxer. And she’s bizarrely proud of it, proud enough to write an unhinged Instagram about how no one can “force” her to take the vaccine and no one can “force” her to “prove her health to participate in society.” Lord, does The Netherlands get Fox News or something? Here’s her batsh-t post:

The past few months have been very peaceful without social media:)

A part of me wanted to escape into my family bubble and leave everything up to faith. That part of me believes in the power of consciousness, that whatever you give energy to will grow. So I tried to ignore the negative and focus on the positive. But at this point I can no longer turn a blind eye to the injustice that is happening right in front of us.

Other people have given me hope and strength with their courage to stand up for our rights. They touched my heart and inspired me to do the same. So although my hands are shaking while writing this, I feel it is time to choose courage over comfort and speak my truth:

I will not be forced to take the shot. I will not be forced to prove my health to participate in society. I will not accept exclusion of people based on their medical status.

Freedom of speech is a right worth fighting for but we can only solve this united in peace and love!

Pass on the torch of hope and love and speak your truth.

[From Doutzen Kroes' IG]

The energy behind this is so disturbing. The anti-vaxxers truly believe that torch-wielding vaccine gangs are thisclose to roaming the streets and screaming “SHAME” at the unvaccinated. The “my hands are shaking while writing this” part is especially ridiculous. I mean, maybe deep down she knows that she’s an idiot and she should not be writing this, and that’s why her hands were shaking? Anyway, vaccines are not a speech issue. If she wants to remain unvaccinated, that’s awful for her and for her family, and I hope her hands are shaking when she refuses to take up space in a hospital when she inevitably gets Covid. How did I never realize before now that she’s a giant idiot?

Doutzen Kroes arrives at the 2019 Harper's BAZAAR Celebration of 'ICONS By Carine Roitfeld' held at The Plaza Hotel on September 6, 2019 in Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States.

    Gross. I used to love her before reading this.

    • Chic says:

      Explains Why she stopped posting on Instagram during lockdown and there was some rally that she showcased with MiaHamm protesting vaccines. Uhh. Liked her. her sister is one of those healthy chef.

    • GrnieWnie says:

      me too! What a bummer. She’s very chill and seems kind, but do recall that modelling often prevents women from completing their education. Models are not dumb, but they are often uneducated.

      People have managed to frame this pandemic in so many bizarre ways. It’s simple: citizenship comes with rights AND responsibilities. You have both. Under pandemic conditions, you have a responsibility to protect public health and get the damn vaccine. You need to meet that responsibility. Otherwise, you don’t deserve the rights of citizenship.

    • psl says:

      Me too. Very disappointed to read this.

      I have been reading so many comparisons to the Holocaust. As a Jew, this makes me livid. I swear if someone says that to my face, I will wind up being arrested. Disgusting and invalid comparison.

      I don’t know why so many people are against something created to SAVE LIVES.

      • TIFFANY says:

        ‘I don’t know why so many people are against something created to SAVE LIVES.’

        Because others will benefit and people aren’t going broke as a result, psi. That is all this is. If they were told it would only benefit them and theirs, they would be lining up around the block.

        It is sociopathic, honestly.

    • A says:

      I live in the Netherlands. Their vaccination rates are alright, but they are anti-mask and seemingly opposed to any restrictions at all.

      • TEALIEF says:

        That’s right, citizenship comes with rights AND responsibilities, it’s called Civics. She should take a few civics classes and follow that up with a few classes in general Social Studies.

    • Shanaynay says:

      Yesss!

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes, I second or third that!! Don’t trust the science for the vaccination but you are willing to allow people that have been vaccinated to die due to your selfishness and ignorance. We have vaccinated people dying because of your stupid selfish behaviour. I don’t think people that are unvaccinated should be allowed in the hospitals, exceptions are those too young. I think they should be denied treatment. I know that my opinion is harsh, but I am tired of these selfish assholes creating an unsafe and dangerous environment for those of us that believe and trust the science. It’s astonishing to me given the number of vaccines that have been given, the possible side effects are minuscule compared to the BS they are touting.

        I don’t know who she is but she clearly isn’t intelligent enough to understand that her freedom of speech has nothing to do with being vaccinated!

    • pottymouth pup says:

      oh, the second she or someone she loves tests positive or is told they were exposed, you can bet they’ll be getting their concierge doc to come to them to immediately start the infusion of monoclonals. I can only hope that these affluent & entitled POS beings with huge platforms who keep the disinformation campaign going personally reap the worst of the rewards of what they’re sowing.

    • Amy T says:

      How stupid is she? I’m DONE with these anti-vaxxholes.

      Still reeling from Friday. A friend and former colleague (whose business card I shared regularly with library patrons who attended the public tech school where he advised African-American students, because I knew they’d get all the support they needed) was found dead at home after repeated attempts to reach him. He was fine the previous Friday, and sick enough on Tuesday that he told the coworker who dropped soup and orange juice to just leave it by the door, he felt awful and would get it later.

      He’d refused to get vaccinated. He’s gone and it is a tragic, tragic waste for all of us who adored him and the countless number of students who he helped and the hundreds more that he would have in the couple of years he had left before he could retire and spend more time with his chosen family and his seven beloved guitars.

      We who loved him are gutted and furious.

  3. Pao says:

    This post is wild because like you pointed out, this is not, and never has been, a freedom of speech issue. Unless there was some sort of SWAT team coming to arrest her after she posted this? Which I highly doubt.

    She and other people who think like her are limiting OUR freedom with their selfishness. As she ever thought of that? By now i think its known that unvaccinated people have not only more chance of catching COVID. The chances that they’ll get seriously ill and end up in the ICU are higher aswel. Its putting an immense strain on our healthcare system.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Exactly. It’s just so stupid and selfish because they’re the ones not only limiting other people’s freedom, but actually putting other people’s health and lives at risk. These anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers aren’t only hurting or risking themselves.
      This is also why the argument very bitter and insecure people were making about how women who get plastic surgery should be treated the same as an anti-vaxxer or anti-masker for ‘feminism’ is just vapid garbage. Some pearl-clutcher choosing to play the victim because some less ‘classy’ woman got work done /= a global pandemic that has killed millions and left many with debilitating, long-term symptoms, ladies. Just like other people should be able to get sugar-free goodies in a froyo shop even if they aren’t already diabetic, right?

  4. Newyork1 says:

    Check out Brittney Aldean. She 100% agreed with this post and is now wearing impeach Biden shirts.

  5. Kate says:

    Exclusion of people based on their medical status is actually what a lot of countries have been doing when issuing visas. Plus, if you have a contagious disease it’s your responsibility to be careful and not give it to those around you.

    • Christine says:

      Precisely. I wonder how many shots she has happily gotten in order to travel to a country or entire continent that requires it, for her modeling career. Everyone who remotely travels is aware of this, she is not an idiot.

      I am so effing tired of these privileged assholes publicly sharing utter nonsense, while fully knowing they have the means, if necessary, to get bumped to the front of an ICU line.

  6. Shawna says:

    “Medical status” — as if vaccination is the same thing as sexual orientation, race, gender, etc.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Exactly. So ridiculous, and what an irresponsible message to send.

    • terra says:

      Not to mention that vaccination status is incredibly important for some people to know. In my family alone there are multiple people with compromised immune systems – including a recent transplant recipient and a teenage heart patient – whose continued existence depends on not unintentionally bathing in the germs of others when out trying to live their damn lives.

      If someone doesn’t want to get vaccinated then they don’t have to, but they also need to be prepared to stay inside and never come out. The choice is theirs.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ terra, I agree!! Those who choose not to be vaccinated should be placed in permanent lockdown in their homes. They are the ones causing the virus to spread. You choose not to vaccinate, then your rights are stripped from you. My son and DIL have refused the vaccination, and I told them that they are no longer welcome to my home.

    • theotherViv says:

      Makes me wonder if her children are vaccinated against anything? With so much travel and a husband (who I think is half Surinamese) I am puzzled as to how people think it‘s ok to travel to places such as the Carribbean or Surinam unvaccinated against anything. Third world countries get outbreaks that way. Did they not go on a Safari somewhere in Africa if I recall correctly? You need yellow fever vaxx for most of Africa.

  7. P says:

    Then die, you ignorant woman.

  8. TIFFANY says:

    The best part is Gisele, another Mensa member got into her comments to say something.

    And still…..I laughed.

    pretty faces arent always anything more

    • Giddy says:

      Right. No one ever said that she was smart.

    • Shanaynay says:

      Nothing but a pretty face. Dumb as a box of rocks!!

    • Snappyfish says:

      Pretty faces are just that. They have been treated special because of those pretty faces & they begin to believe it. Because she is “special” her opinions matter (or so she had been lead to believe) she will not be allowed to work or much of anything as Europe is beginning to ban, yes ban, the unvaccinated from, well, pretty much everywhere. No vaccine, no ventilator, no hospital visit. Your ignorance shouldn’t be allowed to infect others. I wonder if her hands will be shaking when she or one of her children get sick because of ignorance. Oh & she has been vaccinated for the measles SO there is no valid argument to justify not receiving this one.

    • Eve says:

      @TeaTimeIsComing:

      And not even all that pretty…see the picture without all the makeup removed?

      And nothing, NOTHING, overcompensates stupidity.

  10. Sean says:

    Now that the vaccine is widely available and is a proven defense against Covid, I think those who are unvaccinated by choice are going find their mobility in society to be quite limited.

    I don’t know how things work in the Netherlands but here in the US, the federal government issues a mandate that all companies with 100 or more employees must have staff either vaccinated or submit to weekly testing (it was covered on this site). I can see more and more employers demanding vaccination for those who aren’t medically exempt.

    I can also see insurance companies raising premiums of outright refusing to insure those who remain unvaccinated.

    • SP says:

      We are ready to make a purchase that is pretty much always done in person. When we were contacted to book an appointment, I requested a vaccinated sales rep. Haven’t heard back yet but 1) 80% of eligible people are vaccinated in my city so it shouldn’t be that hard 2) I want my commission to go to someone who is a team player, and most importantly 3) I have kids who I want to keep safe and continuing in-person school.

    • cassandra says:

      I’m expecting the insurance companies to start playing hard-ball pretty soon. A Covid hospitalization, especially one requiring ICU care and ventilation, is insanely expensive and those companies never want to pay a dime if they can help it.

      My health insurance is cheaper if I don’t smoke. I’m sure we’ll be seeing something along those lines with the vaccine too.

      • Sean says:

        Agreed cassandra. I read that going to the hospital for Covid can result in a $50,000 bill. Insurance companies are going to do whatever they can to NOT pay that.

        Those who remain unvaccinated (by choice) are affecting others in ways outside of health reasons. Last week, my company implemented a new policy that if you’re going to be coming into the office, you have to either show proof of vaccination or submit to weekly testing. They are even collaborating with a local pharmacy to have an onsite clinic so employees can receive the vaccine at the office. They are basically doing what they can to get people vaccinated.

        I work in a field that requires me to be onsite. There are two other members of my team that are supposed to be onsite staff at other nearby buildings. I am fully vaccinated, they are not and do not want the vaccine. We just had a team meeting last Thursday where they (my two colleagues) have decided they will be working from home from now on because they’re not getting the vaccine and getting tested weekly is “not realistic” (their words). One even said the company would need to raise his salary if they want him vaccinated. This means I will have to cover their buildings in addition to mine.

        Their decision to not vaccinate has had an effect on me. The parameters of my job have now changed and I don’t agree with those changes. I’ve sent out 10 resumes so far this weekend. I’m sure other have similar stories.

        However, I think soon employers will make being vaccinated a stipulation for working at their companies. Simply because they don’t want their own insurance premiums going up because their offices could be labeled as high risk.

      • lucy2 says:

        Honestly that’s probably low – I was in the hospital for 5 days with a surgery, and it was like $80K. Some people with covid are in for weeks, or months.

        That stinks about work, Sean. I hope things improve for you there. We have 1 at my office who is refusing, and they are not allowed to come in to the office anymore. So far it hasn’t impacted the rest of us yet, but I don’t know how it’ll go in the future.

      • JL says:

        @Lucy2 It’s definitely low. I have two family friends (married pair in their 70s, both fully vaccinated) who were in the hospital with breakthrough cases of Covid for nearly a month. Both got EXTREMELY sick–the husband was on a vent for 5 days–but, thanks to being vaccinated, they survived. Now that they’re both recovered enough to leave the hospital, they’re off to a rehab center for a minimum of three weeks. They tested positive on 8/10, were hospitalized within a few days, and won’t be home before October (at best!). They won’t have to pay for their medical bills, thankfully, but their hospital care and rehab will cost well over a million dollars. I suspect insurance companies are going to start limiting coverage for the unvaccinated, because even treating a vaccinated person for covid can be crazy expensive.

  11. joanne says:

    I wonder how fast she’ll change her mind when no one will hire her. She won’t be able to fly anywhere, no country will let her in, no one will want her on the runway.

    • Lena says:

      That’s what I wondered. I don’t follow the model world, and I don’t know how active she still is in it, but I’m sure she can’t do runway shows without being vaccinated, or go to France or Italy without being vaxxed. It’s her livelihood, but her choice infringes on everyone else’s rights.

    • psl says:

      We hope. There may be people in the Industry who agree with her. :(

  12. mae says:

    I’m really curious about what celebs have been vaxxed and haven’t. No one is really talking about this but – there are multiple blinds going around that Dua Lipa is also unvaccinated as well. She’s dating Anwar Hadid who is notoriously anti-vaxx. Super disappointing.

  13. Julia K says:

    What injustice? Is the polio vaccine , measles, mumps, rubella vaccine an injustice? These vaccines do not take away your freedom; they GIVE you freedom. Ever see someone die of respiratory failure? I have, more than once. Not a good way to go. Terrifying.

    • TIFFANY says:

      And she has traveled to countries that required the vaccines you mentioned. So, she has taken them before.

      And she told on herself while mentioning bubble. She can be this idiotic because her husband ain’t hurting for cash.

    • CariBean says:

      I’ve had people respond with, “but those other vaccines were tested for years and they just fast-tracked the Covid shot” and “it’s not a vaccine, it’s just a shot”. 🙄

      • goofpuff says:

        Yeah its because they know they are wrong and are grasping at the real reason why they don’t want to take the shot. Which is they went all in on being stupid, and can’t back down now.

      • TIFFANY says:

        They say that with a straight face. 🤭

      • Valerie says:

        They bashed the medical industry and corporations and then said that they’d trust the v if it were FDA-approved. When it *was* approved, they said it was done too quickly and was therefore suspect. At the same time, they also wanted TFG for hustling things along. If their mouths are moving (or their are fingers typing), they’re contradicting themselves.

      • Valerie says:

        Ugh. I can no longer edit my post: I meant to say that they wanted TFG to get all the credit for hustling things along.

    • Coco says:

      If smallpox was still active, and was a threat to her pretty face, she’d be rolling up her sleeve.

  14. Scal says:

    Mandates give you a freedom of choice. No one is coming and forcing you to do anything. You can choose to get vaccinated or not and the have to get tested or not travel.

    Just like ‘freedom of speech’ there’s no freedom from repercussions of choices.

  15. Amy Bee says:

    I suspect she doesn’t work as much as she used to for her to be spewing that nonsense.

    • lucy2 says:

      She sure won’t be now. She won’t be able to travel to several countries, and I would imagine there are many photographers who will say no thanks, I don’t need the added risk.

  16. Bishg says:

    I’m so disappointed. I used to follow her on IG but unfollowed her a couple of years ago. Then I checked her profile around early summer and noticed she hadn’t been posting anything for months. I was actually wondering if she might be going through something serious, health or family-wise. Obviously she’s okay but this is just crap. She could have just remained silent but no, she’s using her platform to spread no-vaxx b******t. If you don’t think taking care of your own health doesn’t equate protecting those around and therefore it is not an obvious or necessary requirement to be a member of society, then you’re missing the point about what a society or community is.

  17. Otaku fairy says:

    What about the right of people with compromised immune systems to ‘participate in society’ without being put at risk by people like this?

    • Wilma says:

      I was wondering about that just the other week. Some of my colleagues won’t get vaccinated and I was wondering about my rights as an immuno-compromised person. I want to be able to make a correct assessment of my risks, but I also would love to know whose rights get precedence.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Wilma, excellent argument. Why should you have to suffer physically due to the selfishness of your coworkers? I would hope that your company takes the stance of everyone must be vaccinated, otherwise you are in danger. I also suffer from immune compromised and I refuse to go out without 2 masks!! In fact, I have already decided I will wear them into next year as well!!

  18. Willow says:

    Here’s the thing. Money makes the world go round. Sick and dead employees don’t make money. That’s what it’s going to come down to. Eventually everyone will be required to be vaccinated to get work.

  19. Tate says:

    Whatever. Be an idiot. Just don’t take up hospital resources when you inevitably get covid.

    • Eve says:

      @Tate:

      The sad thing is she’ll probably get others infected/sick but herself.

      On September 17th I took my second shot (Pfizer) and all I could of think was how lucky I was. That so many didn’t get the chance (more than 600,000 people have died in Brazil so far).

      Apparently, there’s a talk about the need for a third and if that is confirmed, I’ll be there.

      By the way, I still wear masks, alcohol gel hand sanitizer wash my hands frequently and keep a certain distance from people.

  20. Giddy says:

    Lincoln said “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.”

  21. Fernanda says:

    And what a hell is ‘my truth’? Someone needs to explain to these celebs that the truth is an absolute category, it is either there or not. There is no my, your, their truth. Good God! And these antvaxxers are a threat to society.

  22. Rapunzel says:

    I’m so sick of this shit. Like, my teaching job requires TB testing. Always has. Nobody whines. The government has every right to determine that people not taking certain health precautions, which makes them a danger to others, should have limited participation in society. It’s the government’s job to endure public health. And freedoms get limited all the time for public health and safety reasons. Like, getting ejected from your house if the city declares it condemned. Or being unable to smoke in certain buildings. Or getting arrested if you drive drunk.

    The cognitive dissonance is astounding- we have health regulations all the time and many other vaccinations are required for public health. And these very same folks whining about “health freedoms” also screech to high heaven if they see “illegals” entering the country without vaccinations, claiming they spread disease.

    This libertarian bullshit has got to stop.

    • cassandra says:

      Exactly. I’m a nurse. Just to get into nursing school (let alone an actual nursing job) you have to 1) show your vaccination records and 2) get a blood test to prove you’re still immune to those diseases. If you aren’t, you get vaccinated again. It’s one of the costs of entry into the profession.

      All these anti-vax nurses are delusional and have apparently developed amnesia.

    • lucy2 says:

      Well said.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      I’m not understanding healthcare workers, either. We’ve always needed TB/Mantoux tests, flu shots, etc. in order to work in most healthcare settings. Just shut the hell up and get the vax. I won’t hire anyone for my clinic who isn’t vaccinated.

  23. Maudd says:

    Doutzen is Dutch and is living in the Netherlands. Reason she writes this now, is because our government has announced new regulations starting from September 25. From Sept. 25 you can’t go in a cafe, restaurant, the movies, theater, museum, etc. without proof you are vaccinated or have been tested negative in the last 24 hours. This is why now all anti vaxxers here, are talking about being ‘forced’ to be vaccinated by our government. Doutzen joined a campaign in March called “Moederhart” and posted about it on Instagram. It’s about mother’s campaigning against COVID rules in schools. This was the tell all about her being anti vax (these people are called ‘Wappies’ in the Netherlands). She received some backlash after that post, which was the reason she did not post until now….

    • Desdemona says:

      Yep, those measures are already in full force in Portugal since end of July. I carry the vaccination certificate with me just in case…. Our country has already 85% of the population vaccinated including children above 12 years old…

      • ML says:

        In the Netherlands, 82% of adults are fully vaxxed, another 4% have had just one shot, and 14% are either too old, too sick or most likely in denial. 39% of children 12 to 17 years old are fully immunized and and approximately 15% of them have had their first shot. Everyone of my inlaws above the age of 12 has been immunized, as have I.
        That said, the Dutch are Europe’s libertarians. This worked well with leading the way on issues like soft drugs, abortion, same sex marriage. Historically, the Dutch last demanded people get immunized for small pox at the end of the 1800s! Since then, all vaccinations have been voluntary, because the right to choose is sacred here. In the past, this hasn’t been much of an issue because most people voluntarily chose to protect themselves and others.

      • Desdemona says:

        Covid vaccines aren’t compulsory here either.. People wanted to get them…

  24. Amy Too says:

    “I will not stand for the injustice of not being allowed to walk around with a gun strapped to my chest that shoots off bullets at random intervals! I am sickened that my right to hang out with other people who have the randomly firing guns strapped to their chest is being challenged by rules insisting that we wear a bullet proof vest out in public over our gun just because the hospitals are overwhelmed with gun shot wound victims right now! Not fair! My anti-bullet proof vest friends and I should be allowed to walk around freely with bullets randomly spewing from our bodies wherever we want to: schools, planes…”

    It’s like we all had these guns that randomly fired bullets at each other through 2020.. And then we found out that if we cover our gun-chest with a bullet proof vest, and everyone else covers their gun-chest with a bullet proof vest, it cut down on gun shot wounds. But people were like “I don’t wanna wear it, it clashes with my outfit and feels weird!” Now we have the technology to disable those chest-guns (the vaccine), and those same people are like “I don’t wanna do that either, that’s too much trouble, and I shouldn’t have to if I don’t wanna.” But they’re also not going to cover up their gun with a bullet proof vest. So the rest of us with disabled guns are still stuck at home, or having to wear our bullet proof vest whenever we risk going out, just because these people refuse to do either. And THEY’RE the ones screaming about their freedoms to live how they want being curtailed!?

    When ppl preach about not believing and all that crap it’s so sickening to me… gonna start believing it when ur dying of Covid and on a ventilator

    • Erin says:

      Some of them don’t though. They either come out of the hospital still in denial that they had it or they go to the grave still denying it. I’ve read stories where family members get angry that the death certificate says covid because they still don’t believe in it even after their loved one has died from it.

  27. Gabriella says:

    Oh no and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley liked the post. Unfollowed.

    • Girl18 says:

      Double yikes! Double unfollow!

    • Emilia says:

      Yup, Doutzen’s post has outed a lot of other celebrity idiots. People who have either liked or commented on her post are Adrianna Lima, Gisele, Teresa Palmer, Eva Longoria, Yolanda and Gigi Hadid. Yolanda isn’t surprising but I thought that Gigi was vaccinated since she went to the Met Gala?

      • Eurydice says:

        I wonder about Gisele because Tom Brady is vaccinated and the Bucs are super strict about 100% vaccination – wouldn’t they want the family members to be vaccinated, too?

      • TIFFANY says:

        @Eurydice. Lurch admitted he got Covid after that boat party they stupidly took after winning the SB. Yeah, I doubt he was the only one and that team didn’t have a choice but get fully vaccinated.

      • Emma says:

        Stunned at the number of supportive comments under her post calling her brave and loving. This level of cruelty disguised under mounds of sugary whining and white woman tears is just so infuriating and disheartening.

        Garance Dore commented in support calling it “freedom of choice.” Wtaf I used to love her blog. And quite a few other blue checks with huge followings commenting sycophantically.

      • Eurydice says:

        @Tiffany – I’m not going to get into a pro/anti Tom Brady thing here – only to say it wasn’t just a bunch of bros who decided to take a boat party – it was the Super Bowl celebration, so blame the city of Tampa and the NFL and also the Bucs for not wearing masks. Also, technically, the Bucs do have a choice about vaccination – the players’ union is against a vaccine mandate and the NFL says they want one but won’t dictate. So, the Bucs could have made the stupid choice, and there were a couple of holdouts, but they ended up getting to 100% Other teams aren’t there yet.

        Remember when Paris Hilton was doing get out the vote campaigns all over the place and then the tabs followed her around all day on Election Day and she never actually voted? I. the 2004(?) election I think. Now I’m wondering how many other people are being paid to do vaccine or mask up campaigns that aren’t actually vaccinated and also don’t wear the mask regularly.

  28. Cerise says:

    My goodness, the pandemic has really showed us people’s true colours. I cannot believe the amount of imbeciles that roam this Earth, it is truly depressing.
    I also cannot believe how easily people can be manipulated into believing all this antivaxx nonsense. Even a family member with a PhD in biochemistry and otherwise supporter of all other vaccines is refusing to take the covid vaccine as it hasn’t been thoroughly tested and he doesn’t “trust” the mRNA technology. I told him to get any of the non mRNA vaccines and he still refuses. *infinite facepalm* I just can’t.
    Sure, big pharma is out to get you and the scientists that have devoted their careers to developing these vaccines are liars but believe whatever nonsense you find on YouTube and Facebook!!!!

    • Laura-Lee MacDonald says:

      This bizarre cognitive break is in my family, too. Otherwise very smart people just not getting on board with COVID vaccines for utterly vapid and baseless reasons. Which makes me wonder what the ‘real’ reasons are. I know these people, they aren’t that ignorant. I thought, anyway. Now, my family members who aren’t getting vaccinated because they happily ride the ‘natural path/crystal healing/anti-vaccine for my kids but I got them’ train? Ugh. I avoided them anyway.

  29. ME says:

    Someone please ask these anti-vaxxers what their solution is to end this pandemic? I really want to know what they think will end this? Just let everyone catch it and whomever dies, oh well ??? Do these anti-vaxxers think they are made of something special that this virus can’t destroy their bodies ? Morons. They are making life so much harder for the rest of us. Ughhh.

    • Eurydice says:

      There may have been some modicum of heartless logic to that approach back when nobody was vaccinated – “survival of the fittest” – just let everybody catch it, have the strong survive and hope antibodies will protect those left from the next variation.

      But now, the “fittest” who will survive are those who’ve been vaccinated. We can wear masks and take precautions and congregate with those who’ve been vaccinated, while the others can practice free speech and personal identity in the ICU.

  30. Barbie1 says:

    Not a shred of common sense. I’m sure she’ll get sick and pass it on to her innocent children like so many others have done. Completely out of touch with reality.

  31. Girl18 says:

    I really liked her before and thought she was one of the smarter ones. What a disappointment.

  32. VitaBANItaBONnita says:

    I love her.

  33. Girl18 says:

    I want to point out that Lais Ribeiro also commented on her post.

    • Valerie says:

      I haven’t looked at the replies, but I did notice that one of my mutuals, who I’ve recently discovered is not-so-quietly anti-vaxx, liked her post, as did a well-known photographer that I just started following. Good riddance to both of them.

  34. Llvanslyke says:

    So I guess she’ll be OK if her kids hang out in leper colonies with no mask or gloves.

  35. Nan says:

    She’s pretending to have a conscious stance on this issue but she comes off like a raging brat. Public health isn’t a matter for personal preference.

  36. Nicki says:

    Then the doctors and nurses at the hospital she rushes to when she gets Covid shouldn’t be forced to treat her.

  37. Lizzie says:

    So many people are happy to make orphans of their children in the name of stubbornness.

  38. DuchessL says:

    People think they are battling the same battle, in fact they’re miles away from each other. One side is fighting so that hospitals and medical care can continue for all – so they get vaccinated not to get sick/lower the risk of infecting and the antivaxx on other side are willing to take a risk to infect and get sick but dont realize they f*ck up all the medical system. They dont realize vaccinated people dont care really whether they get sick or if they’re willing to risk it. But dont go to a hospital with the idea that you should be a priority when everybody else with serious conditions can’t be treated because of you. because hello, there is a cure that exists. Dumb heads.

  39. Sparkles says:

    I read on another site that famous people liked her post including Eva Longoria, Adriana Lima, Yolanda Hadid, and Winnie Harlow among others. I don’t have Instagram so I can’t check but damn.

  40. Jaded says:

    So Doutzen…you and your kids shouldn’t wear seatbelts either because it infringes on your right to not wear one? You and your kids shouldn’t wear helmets when you’re all out biking around because it infringes on your rights? How about not wearing life preservers if you’re out canoeing or kayaking? It’s the same thing you utter dumbass.

  41. Kathleen says:

    FYI you can see what other celebs like her post and Eva Longoria is one of them. Yikes.

  42. TeeBee says:

    Chances are she will get through the pandemic with minimal issues, and that will just cement in her head that she is right and we are all sheep… It is wrong to wish that she gets sick, or has someone close to her get sick and/or die so that she will learn. But in her case, and in many many millions of cases that will not “win” the schadenfreude lottery, their skating through the pandemic relatively unscathed, unvaccinated and proud of it, will be the result of everybody else’s efforts and them mistaking chance/being really lucky as proof they are right.

    Today CNN led with a story of an extraordinary effort to save an unvaccinated father of 6 who was dying of COVID, and how through a doctor’s intervention he was saved, and on a very long road to recovery. The story has the same conclusion, once vaccine hesitant are now on the vaccine train, getting it, telling others to get it. YAY.

    I read it getting increasingly angry. Why was this man saved? The wife and family were VERY persistent and motivated to engage all resources in any way they could (except get the fucking vaccine) so that his story was amplified and therefore he received the help he needed… But I still think, why him? Why is the story uplifting? Why is the actual gist of his tale of the hubris and arrogance of the purposely unvaccinated ever a tale of triumph? He got way more than he deserved, and I mean LIFE. Sure, he can inspire others to get vaccinated now, but these redemptive rescue stories are only inspiration to the unvaccinated ilk that stubbornly hold all of us hostage. I know it might be prudent to stay the course now, and do all we can to convince the unvaccinated to take the vaccine. But for us that did it immediately, waiting hours and hours, upended our already upended lives to stand in line and get it as soon as we could, well, I do not like these stories. I do not like the overall message. I do not cheer for those families or loved ones that now get their dad, who will need a lot of therapy and long term care still, for longer even though he is wholly responsible for his plight, and he may have infected and killed others, or robbed someone of lifesaving care…

    So fuck these anti-vaxx, freedom of speech, misguided human rights activists… Go live on an unvaccinated island, unplug yourself from the life of regulated, law abiding citizens that just want to live our lives and protect others so that we may all move forward together. I was done with you before, but I AM DONE WITH YOU FOREVER.

    To quote a clever Twitterer: “I don’t have evens to can’t…”

    • Eurydice says:

      I share your frustration, but to quote someone else – “it could be your purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.” This guy isn’t a hero; he’s an idiot – and his stupidity should be paraded out in public for other idiots to look at. Maybe if the stories are framed differently, for example, putting him side by side with the poor guy who died of a heart attack because there were no ICU beds available in all of Alabama.

    • persephone says:

      Dear TeeBee, fantastic comment on all levels.
      I do not cheer when some unvaccinated fool falls ill or even dies, but this…
      Your comment hit me hard because I lost my father to covid, and it happened before the vaccine was available. In fact, the news that a vaccine had been approved came days after he passed away. He would have been in the first round of people to be vaccinated, due to his age and his profession, and he would have been thrilled to have the opportunity.

      • TeeBee says:

        Thanks Persephone. And I am so sorry to hear about your father. Yours is a story that doesn’t get told enough; people who lost people even before the vaccine was available. It must make your wounds even rawer, more acute, that a vaccine you and your family would have clamored for would eventually be vilified and politicized… talk about the ultimate evidence of privilege.

        I hope your experience becomes a part of the conversation when we have the time and energy to look back, and LEARN. Until then, know that every one of us that did get the vaccine, and are so grateful for it, grieve with you and the thousands of others that mourn lost ones that didn’t even have a chance.

      • persephone says:

        thank you TeeBee, for your kind words.

  43. Youre_a_towel says:

    How disappointing.

  44. L4frimaire says:

    Always these types. Have to be loud and wrong and let every know their ignorance. Also, people like her are basically relying on those who are vaccinated to protect them and coasting on that. If it doesn’t affect them directly, it doesn’t exist in their minds and they don’t care about others either. My brother in law finally got vaccinated because he couldn’t go to work functions and wouldn’t be able to travel overseas. Now he doesn’t want anyone to know he got the vaccine because of the BS he was spewing. The most dramatic thing to happen to him since he got vaxxed was him whining about a sore arm. As someone wrote above, if Covid caused sores on her face, she’d be first in line to get vaxxed.

    • Blueskies says:

      I have often wished that some of the side effects of covid were visible and very unpleasant, we might see very different vaccinated stats. In fact, almost certainly. 😒Some people need to be literally hit in the face with the reality of this virus. I ran out of fks months ago, my misanthropic levels are at NASA rocket blasting off .

      • Valerie says:

        Yep. If this were smallpox, there would be no hesitation. And how did we eradicate smallpox? One word, not two, and it doesn’t start with ‘h’!

  45. Remy says:

    Last week I tried out a new Pilates studio and overheard an anti-vaxxer irl. She was talking to the instructor and saying how her cousin died after getting COVID from the shot. She then went on to say how more people are dying this year because of vaccine than last year. Someone doesn’t understand exponential growth and it shows. Then she went on to say how the polio vaccine was a coverup for some chemical. And of course she kept saying how she had a book all about it. The instructor then said that she wasn’t vaccinated yet either, because she’s pregnant and she never goes anywhere (I guess the studio and the various students she encounters doesn’t count). Needless to say, I won’t ever go back to that instructor or studio again.

    • Valerie says:

      I stopped going to a local coffee shop last year after the owner was caught promoting Q-based conspiracy theories on social media. Here’s the kicker: She was spouting all of this nonsense while begging the government to support her “small business”— the one that she had previously described as world-famous.

      So, she implicated all of these people in a vast and shadowy conspiracy, but then asked them to help her stay afloat during these trying times. I’d never seen such bullshit before in my life.

  46. Judith says:

    She’s done this before.
    She already questioned the Dutch governments’ handling of the covid-pandemic back in July 2020, its why shes been offline so long. She got a lot of criticism (very justified) for that. so Dutch people definitely saw this coming.
    She also posted this now, because last week the Dutch government decided that for certain indoor activities businesses can and should ask for a proof of vaccinations.

    The privilige and arrogance are dripping from this post for me. for her, it’s going to be easy to have access to private planes/cars, distanced facilities, top health care etc.
    This, like all anti-vaxx celibrities give me a lot of ‘let them eat cake’ vibes. these people are so far removed from reality, they dont understand real life and real consequences, because, unfortunately, they are never going to be confronted with them. They can just buy their way out, like always. f*ck these people, they get all the resources (like when Nicki Minaj was offered a call with a White House sanctioned health care professional, I imagine the VVD (ruling, money loving, right wing party) would offer Kroes the same options) and use exactly none of them.

  47. Leah says:

    Selfish people remaining selfish.

    So over these anti vaxxers/maskers and their excuses. They’d rather take a med meant for animals than a vax that is meant for humans. Dummies.

  48. Martin says:

    Ok, here is the thing: you can make the decision to not get vaccinated. Absolutely your choice. But, your choice does not mean other people have to accept to live with the consequences of YOUR choice. Which means, you have to accept not to be able to interact with society as before.

    There is no middle ground here, and people arguing everyone else could get vaccinated: you basically demand the rest of society to take over your responsibility to stop the virus. Decisions like these are the reasons why measles are coming back in force, among other diseases.

    In all western countries, school children have to have certain vaccination in order to attend school. If you want to visit certain countries you have to get certain vaccinations in order to be allowed to visit. It is the same thing, a choice on your part does not equate to society having to bend to your requirements.

    In conclusion: Yes, it is your choice not to get vaccinated but it is not your right to endanger other people’s lives due to your healthcare choices.

    • Valerie says:

      This is another way in which they contradict themselves. They accuse the schools of being liberal indoctrination centers and have no problem with comparing them to concentration camps. They encourage other parents to homeschool their kids to keep them safe from further brainwashing and tyranny.

      Then they turn around and beg whoever’s in charge to keep the schools open, citing, among other things, concerns about the impact of school closures on students’ socialization and mental health. They storm into schools and all but hold the fucking place hostage and then claim that this is all for the children’s safety.

      Somehow, despite their supposedly superior intelligence, it never occurred to them to just not send their kids in the first place. They had no problem with registering them before this, and proof of vaccination w as still a requirement for entry.

  49. Veronica S. says:

    Some people are just so desperate to be victims of SOMETHING while also getting to feel like they are so fat beyond the rest of us intellectually.

  50. Betsy says:

    That’s disappointing. I used to like her, until this.

    And I think you’re spot on in saying that her hands were shaking because she knows on some level that she’s an *sshole. Like the fake tears of a Becky calling the police on a Black person just going about their business, the body tells.

  51. Itteh Bitteh says:

    “I will not be forced to prove my health to participate in society. I will not accept exclusion of people based on their medical status.”

    Actually, sweetheart, yes, you will. Private companies the world over can enforce whatever rules they like. No vaccine, no entry, no legal recourse. Bless your heart.

    I will go with the unpopular vote here and say if people have an option then it’s up to them.

    • cer says:

      It’s a public health issue, at some point it won’t be up to them because it’ll be mandate.
      Their narcissism is costing lives.

    • Valerie says:

      I don’t think so.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Sure, and then they have to accept the responsibility of their choice and not be able to travel, go into a restaurant, etc. It’s pretty simple, actually. If you want to play with others, you do what it is needed to do so. You don’t want to do that, you don’t play with others. If your choices curtail your movement, you only have yourself to blame.

    @Emma- I think it was the NYTnthat did a story on Garance last year. She spent the lockdown visiting places that were on Lockdown and and detailing the luxe life of lockdown

    Good. Keep talking. Let them all speak their, “truth.” I’d rather know who the toxic shits are.

  56. jferber says:

    Doesn’t she have small children? Her kids are much more vulnerable than her or her partner if they contract the virus. Just last week a four year old girl in Texas died because her asshat parents were anti-vaxxers. Her brother and 5 month old sister also got the virus, but survived. Parents went to GoFundMe and got $20,000 for being shit parents who brought death to their child.

  57. TEALIEF says:

    The batsh-t post reads like she had one to many space brownies in her bubble. She should have stayed there. The injustice done is having to read this rubbish, the crime is some people will actually mainline this BS and amplify this garbage, which will then result in more sickness and death.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      there are people in this world that would rather get their medical information from a model than from a physician or scientist. Scary shit.

    “maybe deep down she knows that she’s an idiot and she should not be writing this, and that’s why her hands were shaking?” LMFAO KAISER.

  60. Maria says:

    Considering Gisele posted a comment on her post defending her, I assume she’s probably against the vaccine too.

  61. Nibbi says:

    I’ve always liked her before. Fascinated by her beauty and she seemed like an upbeat, positive person and quite charming and real w some of her media stuff. Now, sorry, but I just don’t have the time. It’s disappointing.

  62. Maria says:

    I personally am not worried about her at this point. The people she infects, yes. Also, it’s not a 99 percent recovery rate if you are unvaxxed.

  63. Jaded says:

    The unvaxxed are crowding hospitals, health care staff are burning out, people with other illnesses requiring hospitalization and surgery can’t get it, and to add insult to injury anti-vaxxer boneheads are having violent protests in front of hospitals. Medical staff are having their masks ripped off, getting spat at and coughed on. The death rate for the unvaccinated who contract the delta variant is 11 times higher than those who are vaccinated. Modeling suggests the US will hit 1,000 deaths per day again next year. And yes, I couldn’t give a sh*t about Doutzen Kroes but I do worry about her kids and everyone else, especially those with underlying immune problems, who gets covid — even those who have had both shots are getting breakthrough covid.

    The fact that you’re taking this so glibly is an insult to everyone who has gotten sick or died, and to their grieving families and friends.

  64. Valerie says:

    There is a 99.9% chance that if I looked into one of your ears, I’d be able to see clear through to the other side.
