In an effort to claim there is an overreaction to the current measles outbreak, anti-vaxxers are using the "Brady Bunch" to spread their message.
Groups are allegedly sharing memes and clips of a specific episode where the Brady kids all come down with the measles and are elated to have some time off of school with Marcia Brady exclaiming:
“If you have to get sick, sure can’t beat the measles!”
Maureen McCormick who played Marcia, is NOT happy with the misconstrued message telling NPR:
“I was really concerned with that and wanted to get to the bottom of that, because I was never contacted. I think it’s really wrong when people use people’s images today to promote whatever they want to promote and the person’s image they’re using they haven’t asked or they have no idea where they stand on the issue. As a mother, my daughter was vaccinated.”
So far, there are more than 700 confirmed cases of measles with 22 states reporting cases of the extremely contagious disease.
