A Twitter post by the Nation of Islam linking to a video where its leader, Louis Farrakhan, claims the coronavirus vaccine is deadly has remained on Twitter since March 1.
Twitter has yet to take action on the video despite its policies against coronavirus misinformation. Facebook took down a corresponding post on its site.
LOUIS FARRAKHAN VACCINE CLAIMS POSTED TO TWITTER DESPITE MISINFORMATION POLICY
“Now variants are popping up here and there, making null and void what you call your vaccine,” Farrakhan says in the video. “I have friends that are turning because I told them not to take this vaccine. You cannot disprove what we have said.”
“By rushing so fast to get something out, bypassing normal steps in a true vaccine, now God is going to turn your vaccine into death in a hurry,” he continued.
