Alex Berenson is in the midst of major controversy after tweeting out more of his thoughts about the COVID Vaccine. In the process of doing so he broke Twitter policy of presenting misleading information about COVID-19 vaccine. In most cases the situation might have ended with the tweet getting flagged, but what he said was so controversial that the famous anti-vaxxer Alex Berenson was permanently banned from Twitter.
Why Did Alex Berenson Get Banned from Twitter
In his controversial tweet Alex Berenson said this about the COVID vaccine,
“It doesn’t stop infection, or transmission. Don’t think of it as a vaccine. Think of it as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy, and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed in advance of illness. We want to mandate it? Insanity.”
He was probably trying to convey that there are many cases of vaccinated people still catching and spreading COVID-19, such as the outbreak in Barnstable County Massachusetts. However, where it probably went too far was when Alex Berenson said COVID-19 vaccine isn’t a vaccine. That’s probably what got him permanently banned.
