Lauren Jauregui of the band Fifth Harmony recently promoted an anti-vax video on Instagram that suggested the novel coronavirus was caused by flu vaccines, stating that enforcing vaccinations is "freedom stripping" and that "we'll see whatsup when we wake the fuck up". After receiving backlash for sharing the dangerously misinformed and ignorant video, she "apologized" by saying sorry that people are "misreading" what parts of the video she agreed with on Twitter and bringing up that she's pro-choice.
I’m sorry if anyone was offended by anything in the video I reposted on my story. I am not personally “anti” anything, I am & will always be pro choice & autonomy. I don’t believe anything should be enforced upon anyone.— Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) April 13, 2020
I’m pro do whatever you think is best for you & your fam, personal decisions b/w you, your dr. and partner. That video is 9 mins long & covered a range of topics. The point that I agree w/ is that fear mongering & propaganda have us all allowing the stripping of our human rights.— Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) April 13, 2020
If you associate me with irresponsibility because of someone else’s beliefs, I can’t really stop you from having your opinion. But I did want to clarify and, again, apologize for any misreading of what point I agreed with. Sending love and appreciate being held accountable.— Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) April 13, 2020
I’m aware that I have a large platform and that it is easy to be misunderstood, so I hope this clears any mess up. Anyway, wishing you love, health and peace goodnight!— Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) April 13, 2020
When a fan rightfully pointed out that no one "misread" what point she agreed with and that it was dangerous she thought the video was "REAL AF" in the first place, this was her response.

I do think a lot of the points she was making in the video were “real af”. Again, she mentioned many different topics in the span of the 9 minute video, and I have, in this statement, made clear that my views are mine and hers are hers whilst apologizing for the confusion.— Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) April 13, 2020
