Social media platform Twitter has booted Dr. Robert Malone, one of the key creators of mRNA technology which has been used to create the COVID vaccines now on the market, according to a report published by The Epoch Times.
Dr. Malone has become an outspoken critic of COVID mandates and regulations over the courses of the last year.
Malone, writing on his Substack page, confirmed he had been “permanently suspended from Twitter.”
The doctor has worked for nearly thirty years to build a career in the field of infection disease countermeasures. According to the Epoch Times, his account had around a half-million followers when it was suspended.
“We all knew it would happen eventually,” he then went on to say about the action taken by Twitter to suspend his account.
Malone then stated that the suspension seems to confirm that he “must have been on the mark, so to speak.”
“It also means we lost a critical component in our fight to stop these vaccines being mandated for children and to stop the corruption in our governments, as well as the medical-industrial complex and pharmaceutical industries,” he said.
Malone has endorsed and encouraged older and at-risk Americans to receive the vaccine, but has suggested that younger, healthier persons should question its use.
In an interview with Newsmax earlier this year, Malone argued that the risks of the vaccine for children far outweigh the benefits, noting that children have an extremely low mortality rate from COVID.
The Epoch Times said he was sending followers to Substack, a source for email newsletters, for further updates. The news site said he’d also be putting in an appearance on comic Joe Rogan’s podcast on Thursday.
Twitter carried a suspension notice in place of Malone’s page on Wednesday night, along with text saying the account had been suspended over violations of Twitter rules.
As of this writing, it’s not been revealed what caused Twitter to take this course of action, and the company has not responded to any of the queries being made by the Epoch Times.
Malone revealed that he was not given any warning before his account was suspended.
“The social media site has come under intense fire, as have other social media platforms, over suspensions and deletions of conservative-leaning content and commentators. Free speech advocates and leading Republicans including former President Donald Trump have voiced growing frustration with the site’s policies, claiming political bias,” the report said.
Malone conducted an interview earlier in the year with the Epoch Times where he stated that he was convinced that the immunity that came from previous exposure to the coronavirus was far superior to anything that came from the vaccines.
