Twitter Allows Louis Farrakhan Vaccine Claims Despite Misinformation Policy

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told his followers that the COVID-19 vaccine is a “vial of death,” a claim that was shared on Twitter despite its misinformation policies.

A video of Farrakhan’s remarks, recorded late last month during the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day convention, were still on the site as of Saturday night, according to Fox News.

The post was removed from Facebook for violating its policies Friday night. They included claims that the vaccine was a “vial of death.” He also compared the vaccine to the Kool-Aid from the Jonestown Massacre of 1978 in Guyana, when more than 900 members of a cult called the Peoples Temple died in a mass suicide-murder under the direction of their leader Jim Jones.
