Cameran Eubanks was under fire for posting a picture of the band-aid on her arm after getting the flu shot.

When those opposed to vaccinations made a huge stink about it, she resorted to deleting her post.


The Southern Charm reality star never expected to "raise such a fuss" over the photo.

Now she has responded to the backlash.



"I just deleted a post that I made today about my belief in getting the flu shot. Never did I think it would cause such a fuss."

"I'm sorry to all I offended who don't believe in vaccinating themselves and their children," the 34-year-old wrote in a statement.

There is no doubt every parent wants the best for their children.

But when it comes to vaccinating their child, there is a demographic that is passionately against it despite endorsements from international public health organizations.

Societal fears of vaccinations – which develop antibodies to protect the body from diseases or the influenza virus during the flu season – are theorized to have stemmed from deception by pseudoscience resources and celebrities.

Gid M-K wrote an article for Medium attempting to debunk common misconceptions that anti-vaxxers use to argue against vaccinations.

The list of eight arguments from the article includes the fear that vaccinations lead to autism, that vaccine manufacturers can't get sued if a child gets sick, and that vaccines are profitable, among others.

"If you are a parent who is worried about vaccination: don't stress. You are a good parent. You have just been lied to," M-K prefaced in his article.

But it ultimately comes down to a parent's personal decision.

Eubanks refused to justify herself in getting vaccinated.

"If you do not vaccinate I do not think you are stupid or wrong. We just disagree. I have always said I will not talk about religion or politics on social media and now I'm adding vaccines too."

Eubanks' daughter Palmer tuns one on November 11. She too got vaccinated with the flu shot.

Eubanks said in response to a fan comment:

"Palmer had hers today. I played baby shark and not even a whimper. Couldn't believe it. God bless that annoying ass song!"

Most agreed with Eubanks.






Others believe she shouldn't have removed her post.




The BRAVO reality star was always outspoken when it comes to her parenting.

In a January 31, 2018, Instagram post, she declared she would stop breastfeeding.

"I am DONE with breastfeeding. Gave it a good almost 3 months and I am retiring the boobs. Writing this in hopes it will make other mothers feel less alone."




She explained the simple reason for her decision and was prepared for the impending criticism.

"You see, I'm not quitting because my milk supply dried up or because I'm sick…I'm quitting because I'm just plain OVER IT. By CHOICE."
"I know I will get lectured and judged by this but it doesn't bother me. I need some freedom back for my sanity and the bottle and formula will allow that."

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
