Following his ban from Twitter, Dr. Robert Malone, one of the pioneers of mRNA technology, has embraced free speech social media platforms GETTR and Gab. He was banned from Twitter for violating policies on “misleading information” about Covid and its vaccines.
Dr. Malone is a vocal critic of mandating Covid vaccines, particularly in children. In a recent Substack post, he said: “The risk of death associated with COVID-19 in healthy children is virtually non-existent, as children have significant immunologic advantages relative to the older adult population (> 65 years) which comprises the high-risk cohort for COVID-19.”
Dr. Malone continued to argue that the Omicron variant, which has less severe symptoms, should not be a reason for mandating vaccination in children.
His Twitter account, which had over half-a-million followers was suspended specifically, for: “Violating our policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19. You may not use Twitter’s services to share false or misleading information about COVID-19 which may lead to harm.”
In an interview in Joe Rogan’s podcast, Malone criticized the ban, saying he should be allowed to discuss the Covid vaccines considering he helped develop the technology behind them.
