'I Am Legend' screenwriter reminds us his movie isn't real in response to Vaccine Conspiracies



The 2007 movie, starring Will Smith and a German Shepard (Name not given), is making headlines once again, for the wrong reasons.

Anti-Vaccine nuts who either haven't seen the film, or haven't seen it since 2007 like me, are claiming the vaccine turns people into zombies, liek in the film.


But it didn't happen in the film.


Spoilers for 2007's I AM LEGEND

[Spoiler (click to open)]A genetically engineered measles virus is the reason for the plague and the zombie-like creatures in the film. It was not a vaccination but a modified virus used to treat cancer

Akiva Goldsman clock-checked a blue-check who decided to spread the misinformation after a nameless dumbass in a NYT article said they feared vaccination because of the film.





Will Smith has not commented, because this situation is stupid.
