E! News reported earlier today that actor Miles Teller received a cease-and-desist letter from the film studio behind his new movie Sicario 2: Soldado after fans speculated about his vaccination status. In a viral Facebook post, an unidentified fan alleged that it was the actor’s job to protect the public from the danger of measles, whooping cough and pertussis but that despite being vaccinated, he had not properly maintained his vaccination records.

Upon receiving the letter, actor Teller took to Instagram to affirm his faith in the scientific community and that in spite of the scare that vaccination poses to the public, their actions are being taken to silence him.
“Based on the actions of an anonymous harasser, my feelings about #vaccination are called into question. How dare an anonymous harasser. This person should be ashamed,” Teller wrote. “I am strongly against ANY person questioning the safety of children or other humans. I’m not pro or anti anything, I am a child and woman’s health advocate. I am pro IMMUNIZATION because that is my ONE FOUNDATION FOR GETTING ALL CHILDREN VACCINATED, because that is what will protect ALL HUMANS. YOU SHOULD BE, TOO.”
Following this a cappella rebuttal, the actor has gone on to shut down more speculations by posting a short clip of John Denver’s version of “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
