Woman Dressed Up as Measles for Halloween

Thinking up a clever Halloween costume can be a troublesome and dicey process that takes far too much time, finding that perfect, unique, relevant solution you can actually pull off…


But there is one woman who arguably could have taken longer to decide on her Halloween idea!

So says Reddit, as the post that was shared there, on the channel “r/insanepeoplefacebook”, the anonymous woman there that shared the photo of herself in the ‘full’ Halloween shebang!

She said:


“Was trying to think of the least scary thing I could be for Halloween…so I became the measles”

Then the photo was shared, with comments from some person, maybe a physician…

They said:

“Would you like to accompany me on my rounds? …You can tell our measles encephalitis and viral sepsis patients, the ones in comas and seizures and high fevers, that their suffering isn’t all that bad and is just being exaggerated by ‘Big Pharma’ and clueless quacks who ‘haven’t done their research’ like me. You can even assist with the spinal tap! Read your favorite vaccine insert to them while they sob in fear and agony. Very cool and very fun!”


It continued! However, the person called the woman:

“[A] horrible person and possibly a sociopath.”

“How I wish children suffering in the infectious ward could dress as ‘fake diseases’ for Halloween like the privileged idiots who put them there.”

Well, it seems that the post has gone viral on Reddit as may want to share thier own comments and thoughts too…


One said:

“I always thought anti-vaxxers laid on the premise that there’s no reason to get vaccinated because they are ‘bad’ and the chances of getting one of the diseases is so low, that they’ll chance their child getting sick”

Yet another said:

“I never thought that they actually believe that these aren’t actually deadly diseases that kill children.”

One guy simply put:

“What the actual f*ck.”

In case your wondering, and for those that don’t already know, according to the CDC:

“Measles is caused by a highly contagious virus that can lead to serious complications, including pneumonia and encephalitis (inflammation of the brain)”

“Children under the age of five, adults older than 20, pregnant women, and those with compromised immune systems are at the most risk of serious complications”

Getting vaccinated against the measles can really help prevent someone from getting the disease, so it’s highly recommended by medical organizations, and getting the MMR vaccine between 12 and 15 months old, and getting the second dose between ages 4 and 6…

It seems quite apparent that the costumed woman didn’t think things through, or at least consider that this would spark such a conversation and such passion…

Everyone perhaps hopes that she’s learned her lesson for next year’s Halloween, maybe to also for vaccines in general too…

Well, we want to know what you think? Did it spark something when you saw it?
