Kat Von D is a tattoo artist and television star who eventually started her own extremely popular makeup company branded towards the goth girl in all of us. She is also recently married to fellow goth, Rafael Reyes.

The 36-year-old Kat Von D Beauty founder is being criticized for saying she plans on having “a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula” and that she “has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations.”

According to GoodFullNess, Many fans have accused her of being irresponsible for airing anti-vaccination views to a huge audience and now, there is even a growing movement threatening to boycott her brand.

Von D made the announcement on an Instagram post on Saturday, June 9, where, anticipating the backlash, she wrote: “Before anyone of you feel inspired to tell me how to do this, I would appreciate you keeping your unsolicited criticism to yourself."

In the post, she wrote about the backlash she regularly receives for her opinions, including for being "an openly pregnant vegan". Von D explained that she "already knows what it's like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority."

Von D has over 12 million followers on Instagram, so people were pretty shocked and horrified when she broadcast her intentions to not vaccinate her baby.

This means that diseases that have been all but eradicated, like polio and the mumps, have been on the rise again.

The fewer people in a group who are susceptible to a disease, the less likely there is to be an outbreak. We get vaccinations to keep ourselves and other people safe. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
