Instagram Bans Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Instagram Banned Government COVID-19

Instagram banned Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for “repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines”, according to a spokesperson. RFK, Jr. posted a statement on, the organization he founded, that opened with the following:

Every statement I put on Instagram was sourced from a government database, from peer-reviewed publications and from carefully confirmed news stories. None of my posts were false. Facebook, the pharmaceutical industry and its captive regulators use the term ‘vaccine misinformation’ as a euphemism for any factual assertion that departs from official pronouncements about vaccine health and safety, whether true or not. This kind of censorship is counterproductive if our objective is a safe and effective vaccine supply.
