“Vaxxed” -- The real reason that Hollywood stopped protecting him and threw him under the bus??

Last month the 15th annual Tribeca Film Festival kicked off to much success, yet controversy sparked when the anti-vaccine documentary “Vaxxed” was in the screening lineup. The film was eventually pulled from the schedule after a handful of filmmakers threatened to pull their films out if it was screened. 

In a new interview with Vulture at Cannes, Robert De Niro discussed the documentary’s controversy, how he didn’t understand why people wouldn’t want the film to be shown and how he’s also working on his own vaccine project with Harvey Weinstein

“What I learned, first of all, there was a big reaction, which I didn’t see coming, and it was from filmmakers — supposedly, I have yet to find out who it was,” expressed the “Hands of Stone” actor. “I wanted to just know who they were, because to me there was no reason not to see the movie.”
