Last week, Jimmy Kimmel weighed in on the ongoing debate about whether or not people should vaccinate their children. (Spoiler alert: he’s very pro-vaccination.) He knew anti-vaxxers “probably aren’t going to take medical advice from a talk show host” so he invited several doctors onto the show to emphasis his point.

On Monday’s night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he revealed that his segment upset some people, many of whom were angry he did not present both sides of the issue. He said he won’t do that, “for the same reason I wouldn’t present both sides if a group of people decided that pancakes make you gay. They don’t. And there’s no point in discussing it.”

So, with a nod to his popular “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” segment, Kimmel read some angry tweets about himself. Then, Kimmel sent his “community activists” onto the streets to spread the message that the whole debate should come down to “a child’s right to choose.”
