Fox News host Shep Smith slammed parents who refuse to vaccinate their kids as “science deniers” on Monday during his show.

He made the remark during a segment about President Obama’s call for parents to vaccinate their children in light of a growing national measles outbreak.

Addressing vaccine skeptics directly, Smith said, “Hello, science? A lot of you want to talk about science deniers. That’s what you are, people, you non-vaxxers: You’re science deniers! That’s it!”

“A small minority of parents refuse vaccines for their children, citing all kinds of weirdness, including a possible link to autism which science says does not exist,” he said witheringly.

“Anti-vaxxers are hurting all the other little children by not letting little Johnny and little Janie get their shots,” Smith concluded. “Get your shots. C’mon now.”
