Doutzen Kroes is clarifying her stance on the COVID-19 vaccine, which reveals she has no plans to get the shot.
The 36-year-old model has been sharing her thoughts on the pandemic on her Instagram, and addressed her thoughts in a new post this week.
“The past few months have been very peaceful without social media:)” Doutzen started off. “A part of me wanted to escape into my family bubble and leave everything up to faith. That part of me believes in the power of consciousness, that whatever you give energy to will grow.”
She adds, “So I tried to ignore the negative and focus on the positive. But at this point I can no longer turn a blind eye to the injustice that is happening right in front of us.”
Continuing on her post, Doutzen says that “Other people have given me hope and strength with their courage to stand up for our rights. They touched my heart and inspired me to do the same. So although my hands are shaking while writing this, I feel it is time to choose courage over comfort and speak my truth:
“I will not be forced to take the shot. I will not be forced to prove my health to participate in society. I will not accept exclusion of people based on their medical status.”
She adds, “Freedom of speech is a right worth fighting for but we can only solve this united in peace and love! Pass on the torch of hope and love and speak your truth. ❤️”
