Tamron Hall ‘sued for $16million’ for ‘discrimination’ after host slammed anti-vaxxer’s child as a ‘leper’

TAMRON Hall is being sued for $16 million by an anti-vaxxer mom who appeared on her show in 2019.

Jeanine DiAngelo is suing the former news presenter turned talk show host on behalf of herself and her son, alleging the pair were left “embarassed” when she called her son a “leper” and said she wouldn’t want her own child to hug the mom’s unvaccinated son.

Court docs seen by TMZ allege that Jeanine is also suing Disney and the production company, and is claiming Tamron “violated NY law by discriminating against her and their religious beliefs.”

Jeanine is also “arguing Tamron’s lack of education on the topic caused her and her son to suffer colossal emotional distress.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned parents who chose to not vaccinate their children that they should be prepared for other vaccinated children and their parents to stay away.

The show aired in September 2019, and saw Jeanine claim the state of New York had given her no choice but to pull her children from public school after they removed a religious exemption from vaccinations.

Jeanine went on to say that she read the “packet inserts” for vaccines and when she spoke to paedatricians, “there is no science that proves that vaccines are safe and effective.”

Tamron replied: “That is simply not true, I am so sorry Jeanine, that is simply absolutely false.”

She continued: “You believe 96% of the children in the state of New York are vaccinated and you are among the minority, and they are asking why should a small number of children pose a greater risk to the majority?”

“But we don’t pose a risk to the majority, that is what I am trying to tell you,” claimed Jeanine.

An anti-vaxxer is someone who either refuses to be vaccinated or allow their children to be vaccinated.

Since the pioneering work of Edward Jenner in the late 18th century on developing vaccines for smallpox, people have protested against the treatment for a variety of reasons.

Public debate around vaccine hesitancy has previously included issues relating to the safety of the treatment, while ethical objections have been made on civil liberties grounds against mandatory vaccination programmes.

However, anti-vaccination as an ideology is seen as contradicting the overwhelming medical and scientific consensus and has historically led to deaths from outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.
