Erica Mena of 'Love and Hip Hop' Called Out by Fans for Stating She Won't Vaccinate Her Baby after Birth
Erica Mena of "Love and Hip Hop" is getting slammed on the internet for expressing her desire not to vaccinate her baby after birth. Instead of getting praises for her son who seemed to be looking out for his unborn baby sister, the mom instead received flack from all over the world after finding out she wouldn't bring her child to the doctor for vaccines after birth.
At 11-years-old, Erica Mena's first son King stood his ground and tried to educate his mother about the importance of vaccination for his baby sister.
Mena shared a screenshot of her conversation with King on Instagram stories, letting people know how much her little boy already cares for his little sister without her even being born yet. Now, she's being slammed for it.
A Piece of an 11-Year-Old's Mind
King voiced out his concerns to his mom through a text message exchange, saying that while he loves and respects his mom, he thinks that his sister should be vaccinated as this is what's best for her.
When the little boy says "just admit you're wrong and give up," his mom took offense to that and said" "don't talk to your mother like this is disrespectful and not gonna be tolerated."
Standing Firm on His Belief
However, King went on to prove his point, apologizing for seeming disrespectful but wanting the best for his little sister.
"Oh I'm so sorry for wanting my baby sister to live as healthy as [possible]. While you're convinced ignoring what's right for her is fine?"
A Passionate Plea of a Son
Not stopping until his mom understands where he's coming from, he adds:
"I'm sorry for possibly being disrespectful, but I'm only being that way because I'm passionate about this. I love you."
Sounds of Concern Over the Issue
Her now-deleted Instagram stories included the texts: "Look at you being a great big brother. I can't wait for her to get here so you can defend her with all your might. My son King is not letting up on the reasons why we should vaccinate the baby."
Likewise, people on the internet made sure to let Mena and Safaree know their strong views about not vaccinating the baby.
I don't know this celeb (?), but kudos to her 11-year-old son for trying to convince her to vaccinate his soon-to-arrive sister. https://t.co/rjM9BkP189— Dr. Tara C. Smith (@aetiology) November 9, 2019

Now that they're nearing their due date, it seems they have a lot of thinking to do as people are trying to educate them about the importance of vaccinating their child.
