Erica Dixon made her most controversial revelation via Twitter nearly a week ago without even realizing it. After she was open about her new parenting style, she revealed the way people reacted to her.
If you aren’t up to date on the Love and Hip Hop star’s latest going ons, she is the mother of two beautiful twin girls in addition to the teen girl that she shares with Lil Scrappy.
Recently, she revealed that her youngest children have not and will not be vaccinated. She spoke to the Jasmine Brand where she exclusively told them about the backlash she received, how she came to her decision, and advice for other parents that will choose the same route.
In this day and age, anything you put on social media is up for discussion when you’re a public figure.
Erica revealed that people wished death upon her twins after she defended her choice.
Dixon explained that after becoming vegan and doing research she declined the standard vaccinations that infants usually get.
‘I was vaccinated as a child, [and] I started out vaccinating Emani but stopped. The twins father is vegan. He definitely is against the twins getting vaccinated. I went vegan prior to my pregnancy and throughout as well…I did some research and asked questions as they saw their pediatrician…My research consisted of reading about both vaccinated and unvaccinated children, [and] how it would affect them when it came to daycare and school, side effects, risks etc.’
She also noted that her kids will be able to attend school; she just has to sign a waiver.
As for advice to other parents thinking about doing the same, Erica said: ‘I stand with you. Everyone is free to form their own decision when it comes to their children…We have to learn to agree to disagree without being disrespectful. Especially those that wish death on my children because they aren’t vaccinated. I would never wish death on anyone’s child – vaccinated or not. Then again, the internet gives a lot of people heart because they wouldn’t dare say half of what that say via social media to my face.’
