BREAKING: @Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Takes ‘Anti-Vax’ Stance in Violation of His Own Platform’s New Policy
— James O’Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) February 17, 2021
On February 8, 2020, Facebook released a statement claiming that they were “expanding our efforts to remove false claims on Facebook and Instagram COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general.”
In the same statement, Facebook said that they “want to make sure our policies help to protect people from harmful content related to COVID-19 and vaccines” and that they would be removing any content that “claims that the COVID-19 vaccine changes people’s DNA.”
According to this new policy, Zuckerberg would be censored on his own platform for his comments.
