In the latest example of insensitive censorship, Twitter censored the obituary of a mother whose family said she died of Covid vaccine complications.
An obituary in the Oregon Live detailed how Jessica Berg Wilson, an “exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions” passed away from COVID vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, The Federalist reports.
When a social media user posted the link to the Seattle woman’s obituary to Twitter, the social media honcho labeled the tweet as “misleading” and prohibited other users from liking or sharing the post.
Additionally, the label led users to a page that explained why health officials “consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people.”
Per the obituary, Wilson was a devoted wife and mother but in the last few weeks of her life “the world turned dark with heavy-handed vaccine mandates.”
“Local and state governments were determined to strip away her right to consult her wisdom and enjoy her freedom. She had been vehemently opposed to taking the vaccine, knowing she was in good health and of a young age and thus not at risk for serious illness. In her mind, the known and unknown risks of the unproven vaccine were more of a threat,” the obituary read. “But slowly, day by day, her freedom to choose was stripped away.”
After facing backlash from several users for the censorship, Twitter removed the label.
