Madonna censored on Instagram for spreading fake news on covid-19

Censored by Instagram after sharing a video about a conspiracy theory related to the coronavirus.

This is what happened to Madonna for posting a video in which Dr. Stella Immanuel claims to have cured hundreds of patients affected by covid-19 with hydroxychloroquine.

According to BBC, the famous singer also wrote on her Instagram account – followed by more than 15 million people - that a vaccine for covid-19 already exists but is being hidden to "let the rich get richer".

Instagram has obscured the video and labelled it as "false information".  The video was then removed from the singer's page, but not before users had time to criticize her harshly.

Among the critics was Annie Lennox, former voice of the Eurhythmics, who wrote: "This is a real madness. I can't believe you're supporting these dangerous charlatans. I hope your profile's been hacked and you'll explain yourself better."

The same video, previously removed and reported as misinformation by Facebook and Twitter, was published by Donald Trump Jr. who, for the same reason, had been blocked by Twitter for 12 hours.

It is not the first time that Madonna makes controversial statements about the coronavirus. In March, she published a video in which she claimed that covid-19 would be "the great equalizer" between social classes.
