WATCH: 12-year-old ‘scientist’ an online hit after hilariously trolling anti-vaxxer parents
A 12-year-old Mexican boy’s Facebook page devoted to science has garnered widespread attention after he posted a vid mocking anti-vaxxers, Deadstate reported.
The young video blogger, who goes by the name Marco Arturo, marveled that the video had been seen by more people than “the population of Bahamas, Belize, Greenland, Monaco, Bermuda and Dominica combined” after the two-minute clip passed 1 million views. As of Monday afternoon it had nearly tripled that figure.
“We’ve all been lied to by doctors and pharmaceutical companies about vaccines,” he says toward the beginning of the video. “After a lot of research I realized that vaccines do and will cause autism.”
He then holds up a folder bearing the label, Evidence that vaccines cause autism, saying he will go “page by page” to explain his controversial findings.
But when he opens the folder, all he pulls out are blank pages.
“I think it might be because there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that vaccines are linked to autism in any way whatsoever,” he quips.
