Speaking at a hearing Wednesday by the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was questioned by Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R- WI) on his company’s decision to “censor” a post by Donald Trump Jr. extolling the virtues of Hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment – only for Zuckerberg to respond that the post in question was made on Twitter, not Facebook.

“First, to be clear, I think what you might be referring to happened on Twitter, so it’s hard for me to speak to that,” Zuckerberg told Sensenbrenner.

Donald Trump Jr.’s Twitter account was limited after he shared a video “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to Covid-19″ according to the social media giant.

Zuckerberg went on to defend Facebook’s policy on taking down content that pertains to hydroxychloroquine, saying they pull content that could lead to “imminent risk of harm.”

“Stating that there’s a proven cure for covid, when there is in fact none, might encourage someone to go take something that could have some adverse effects, so we do take that down,” he added.

  1. Facebook will remove posts that do not adhere to W.H.O official narratives & Gates Foundation official narratives, because in the background large sums of money are at stake if not everyone is efficiently herded to accepting Gates’ experimental vaccinations

  2. Could there be a conflict of interest with Zuckerberg’s decision to filter this drug. There is no evidence that the drug could cause harm is there? Of course not. It is a legitimate option. He should not be playing Doctor. At the very least Facebook could be tagging a warning onto the post but not censoring it so that others can’t read the post. Facebook is infringing on our civil rights to free speech, and I do not consent to this level of blatant censorship.

  3. Post anything with National Weed Day tied to Hitlers birthday which BOTH are on April 20th….you will get censored and your account will get restricted or locked out
