LOS ANGELES, CA – On Tuesday, “The Queen of Pop,” icon Madonna’s Instagram account was flagged and a post removed for what an Instagram spokesperson said was “making false claims about cures and prevention methods for COVID-19,” in a statement. The post, which was first buried on Tuesday, and then removed by Wednesday morning, was labeled “False Information” by content moderators of the social media site.
The video, which was also tweeted by President Trump before getting taken down by Twitter, was showed the 45-minute America’s Frontline Doctors press conference this week in which physicians praised the use of the drug hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and antibacterial drug, Zithromax in treating coronavirus.
Madonna had written a caption above the video, “The truth will set us all Free! But some people don’t want to hear the truth,” claiming that authorities are hiding a cure for the coronavirus.
The video, which can be seen, here and here, was featured by The Published Reporter on late Monday evening and was viewed over 900,000 times by Wednesday. It was removed from several social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube as ‘misinformation’.
