Dwight Howard doubles down on his anti-vaccine stance

Dwight Howard has become the subject of criticism after he declared that he does not believe in vaccines despite overwhelming evidence that shows that vaccines are safe and healthy. He addressed that criticism by doubling down on his stance.

"If you’ve got an opinion on something, don’t let nobody change your opinion on it," Howard said on his Instagram. "Stand down on your 10 toes and believe in it. Don’t let nobody change your thoughts and your opinions and whatever, because those are your thoughts and your opinions."

It goes without saying that this is an awful way to live your life. After sharing his life philosophy about never ever changing an opinion, Howard made sure to remind us all one more time that he does not believe in vaccines.

"So, I don’t believe in vaccines myself," Howard reiterated. "Will vaccines work for some people? They may, or they may not. But, for me, I don’t believe in them. And that is my opinion, and I’m going to stick with that."

After mostly shying away from the spotlight this season in L.A., Howard has been in the headlines for off-court reasons as the NBA approahces its resumption.
