Instagram censored a post from Madonna, in which the pop star shared with his 15 million followers the theory of the coronavirus conspiracy.
She made a video claiming that the Covid-19 vaccine was “found and proven and has been available for several months.” She continued: “They prefer to let fear control people and let the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”;
The video shows Dr. Stella Immanuel, a primary care physician in Houston, Texas, who claims to have treated 350 patients with the coronavirus hydroxychloroquine. In front of the US Supreme Court building, American frontline doctors spoke to the group.
Instagram blurred the video and labeled it “False Information.” He linked the users to a page that exposed the claims and made it clear that there was currently no coronavirus vaccine. Video distribution on its platform has also been restricted.
Pop star Annie Lennox commented on the post: “This is absolute madness !!! I can’t believe you support this dangerous quackery. Let’s hope your site has been compromised by a hacker and you’re about to explain it. “
Madonna deleted the post. The Guardian contacted the singer’s deputies for comments.
Donald Trump Jr. was banned from duplicating for 12 hours after the publication of a clip later shared by Madonna. Facebook and Twitter had previously removed him and cited him as misinformation.
The American Frontline Doctors event was organized by a group called the Tea Party Patriots Action. The footage was expanded through the right-hand Breitbart website. On Monday, Donald Trump shared various videos from the event with his 84 million Twitter followers, despite the fact that its content contradicts the recommendations of public health experts in his administration.
In March, Madonna described the coronavirus as a “great equalizer.” From the petal-filled bath, she said, “What’s awful about this is that they’re going to balance us all in many ways, and what’s amazing is that they’re going to balance us all in many ways.”
In May, she said she was positive for anti-coronavirus antibodies, and assumed she and her team were ill at the end of the winter tour. “At the time, we all thought we had the bad flu,” she said.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Madonna had donated € 1 million to a fund organized by the EU to find a vaccine for Covid-19.
