Madonna removed by Instagram making false claims!!! Madonna’s controversial post about COVID-19 has been removed by Instagram, the company confirmed on Wednesday. The 61-year-old singer was slammed for spreading conspiracy theories and misinformation to her 15 million followers in a video that touted hydroxychloroquine as a cure. The viral video is the same one President Donald Trump shared before it was taken down by Twitter.
“We’ve removed this video for making false claims about cures and prevention methods for COVID-19,” Stephanie Otway, a Facebook company spokesperson, told Yahoo Entertainment. “People who reacted to, commented on, or shared this video, will see messages directing them to authoritative information about the virus.”
On Tuesday, the “Material Girl” singer shared a clip of the group calling themselves “America’s Frontline Doctors” speaking in Washington, D.C., before the Supreme Court. Dr. Stella Immanuel is a primary care physician and a member of the group who claims to have treated 350 coronavirus patients with hydroxychloroquine. “You don’t need masks. There is a cure,” Dr. Immanuel says in the video. Madonna declared her a “hero.”
“The truth will set us all Free! But some people don’t want to hear the truth. Especially the people in power who stand to make money from this long drawn out search of a vaccine which has been proven and reliable for months. They would rather let fear control the people and let the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,” the caption read of the now-deleted post.
