Instagram owned by Facebook Inc. has removed the account of vaccine Covid 19 skeptic Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for posting misleading information the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
Kennedy is the nephew of late President John F. Kennedy. His representatives could not immediately be reached for a comment. Facebook and Instagram did not respond to a request for comment either.
The company permanently removed the account “for repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines,” the Journal said citing an Instagram spokeswoman.
“We removed this account for repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines,” a spokesperson for Facebook, which owns Instagram, told AFP. The nephew of assassinated US president John F Kennedy nonetheless remained active on Facebook.
