She didn’t hesitate once.

Jennifer Aniston has decided to take the leap and cut out all the anti-vax people in her life, and she’s now explaining exactly why without missing a beat.

Defending her decision to cut these people out of her life, the Friends actress faced a lot of criticism after revealing that she had dropped people.

Heading straight to Instagram, Jennifer, who is fully vaccinated against Covid 19, posted a snap of herself in a mask on her story and went on to explain exactly why she’s done it.

Showing a comment that said: “But if she’s vaccinated she’s protected correct? Why be worried about unvaxxed around her?”, Jen didn’t hold back giving all the facts.

She replied: “I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die. BUT I CAN give it to someone else who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previous existing condition) – and therefore I would put their lives at risk.

“THAT is why I worry. We have to care about more than just ourselves here.”

She then added a picture of a meme in her next story that said: “What doesn’t kill you mutates and tries again.”

The Friends actress told InStyle Magazine about her fears and concerns over having people in her life who won’t “listen to the facts” during an interview earlier this week.

She said: “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.”

The actress continued: “I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or not disclose and it was unfortunate.

“I feel it’s your moral and personal obligation to inform, since we’re not all podded up and being tested every single day.

“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.”

Jennifer has been very vocal about her stance on Covid throughout the whole pandemic, constantly encouraging people to wear masks last year.
