Anti-vaccine supporters attacked Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter, his response will probably make them even madder

"If you genuinely believe that 99% of the doctors in this country are dishonest, then YOU need to see a doctor."

Last Friday, ABC's late night host, Jimmy Kimmel, took a slight turn from his typical comedic tone and delivered a semi-serious message about vaccinations. As the father of an 8-month-old baby, Kimmel has a keen interest in the topic.

Kimmel's crew assembled a group of real doctors to create a somewhat tongue-in-cheek public service announcement to encourage parents to vaccinate their kids.

Here's the initial message from February 27:

After the show, Kimmel's Twitter feed was hit with a host of angry, insulting and vulgar messages from the anti-vaccination crowd.

On Monday, the show responded.

Kimmel read a few of the offending tweets and laughed his way through the angriest messages, adding, "Some of these people are demanding I apologize. Which I, of course, will not do."

He then unveiled a new video in response to the anti-vaxxers. Instead of capitulating, the show doubled-down on its mocking of the medical science deniers.

In this clip, Jack and Becky, Kimmel's "community activist team" took to the streets of Los Angeles in an effort to get people to sign a petition supporting "a child's right to choose."
