LOS ANGELES, July 1 (UPI) -- Actor Jim Carrey took to Twitter Tuesday night and unleashed a slew of heated tweets challenging California's new immunization bill that requires children at school and daycare to be vaccinated.
Only a serious medical reason could exempt a child from receiving vaccination, personal and religious objections were not accepted.
E! News reported that the 53-year-old actor believes there is a link between vaccines and autism and has been an activist on the controversial issue ever since his relationship with Jenny McCarthy, who believes that her son's autism stemmed from vaccination.
Carrey called California Gov. Jerry Brown out as a "corporate fascist" that "must be stopped" in his first tweet, after Brown signed the bill into law.
"California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in mandatory vaccines," he said.

After the Dumber and Dumber To celeb launched into a series of frustrated tweets that diminished the bill, expressed his views and tried to raise awareness.
They say mercury in fish is dangerous but forcing all of our children to be injected with mercury in thimerosol is no risk. Make sense?— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) July 1, 2015
I am not anti-vaccine. I am anti-thimerosal, anti-mercury. They have taken some of the mercury laden thimerosal out of vaccines. NOT ALL!— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) July 1, 2015
The comedian even called out the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) saying that they are "corrupt."
The CDC can't solve a problem they helped start. It's too risky to admit they have been wrong about mercury/thimerasol. They are corrupt.— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) July 1, 2015
Go to http://t.co/SlY91SQmCj watch the documentary and judge for yourselves. If you really care about the kids you will. It's shocking!— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) July 1, 2015
When people started pointing fingers at him for his extreme views he set the record straight by telling naysayers "I am PRO-VACCINE/ANTI-NEUROTOXIN, Get that straight."
"I repeat! I AM PRO-VACCINE/ANTI-NEUROTOXIN, as is Robert Kennedy Jr.," he continued in another tweet.
Carrey was avid in telling followers to go to traceamounts.com and read up on material concerning his view.

Though Carrey is ardent about his beliefs, the CDC says that there is there is "no link between thimerosal-containing vaccines and [autism], as well as no link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and [autism] in children."
Besides naysayers Carrey might also face challengers with some of his acting peers.
Jennifer Garner, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Lopez, Keri Russell and fellow funny women Kristen Bell are all vaccination supporters. Bell once discussed a time when her 2-year-old daughter was born in the midst of the whooping cough epidemic.
"Before she [Lincoln] was 2 months old, we simply said [to friends], 'You have to get a whooping cough vaccination if you are going to hold our baby,'" Bell said. "It's a very simple logic: I believe in trusting doctors, not know-it-alls."
Gov. Brown has a week to make a final decision on the bill.
If he moves forward with it California joins West Virginia and Mississippi as a state with one of the most strictest immunization laws in the country.
