Cheryl Hines Speaks Out After Husband Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Makes Insensitive Anne Frank Comments During Anti-Vaccine Mandate Rally, Reveals They 'Differ On Many Issues'
Cheryl Hines does not agree with her husband Robert F. Kennedy Jr's recent Anne Frank comments.
On Tuesday, January 25, the Bad Moms Christmas star, 56, took to Twitter to get out in front of the outrageous statements that her activist husband, 68, made while at an anti-vaccine mandate rally in Washington.
"My husband’s reference to Anne Frank at a mandate rally in D.C. was reprehensible and insensitive," Hines wrote. "The atrocities that millions endured during the Holocaust should never be compared to anyone or anything. His opinions are not a reflection of my own."
In her original statement (since deleted) via Radar, Hines explained, "My husband’s opinions are not a reflection of my own. While we love each other, we differ on many current issues."
During the D.C. rally on Sunday, January 23, Kennedy reportedly stated to the crowd: "Even in Hitler's Germany, you could cross the Alps to Switzerland. You could hide in an attic like Anne Frank did."

"Today the mechanisms are being put in place so none of us can run and none of us can hide," the environmental lawyer stated via The Hollywood Reporter.
Kennedy later issued an apology via Twitter writing, "I apologize for my reference to Anne Frank, especially to families that suffered the Holocaust horrors."
"My intention was to use examples of past barbarism to show the perils from new technologies of control. To the extent my remarks caused hurt, I am truly and deeply sorry," he concluded.
As OK! previously reported, the couple — who married in 2014 — made headlines after it was revealed that the Curb Your Enthusiasm star had reportedly enacted a COVID-19 vaccine mandate requirement for their family Christmas party despite Kennedy's staunch stance against it.
The member of the political dynasty reportedly explained that he had no idea of the requirement, explaining that it was all Hine's idea. "I guess I'm not always the boss at my own house," Kennedy said of the situation.
