Recently, Kennedy's campaign ran into a snag after running an ad during the Super Bowl that resembled a famous ad ran by his uncle John F. Kennedy from 1960. The ad raised eyebrows and led several members of the Kennedy family to speak out against it.

Kennedy’s cousin, Bobby Shriver, posted that his mother – JFK’s sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver – would be “appalled” that the commercial used images of her and her brother. While Robert F Kennedy Jr is a vaccination skeptic and conspiracy theorist, Shriver said of his mother that “respect for science, vaccines … [was] in her DNA”.

Shriver’s brother, Mark, added in a separate post: “I agree with my brother … simple as that.”

Kennedy has since apologized for the ad and is confident that the family disagreements won't affect his campaign moving forward.
