Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's Twitter account has been suspended for a week for spreading COVID-19 misinformation
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's Twitter account has been suspended for a week after she tweeted misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine.
The temporary ban came after the Georgia Republican wrote on Twitter on Monday evening that the vaccines are "failing."
"The FDA should not approve the covid vaccines. There are too many reports of infection & spread of #COVID19 among vaccinated people," Greene tweeted. "These vaccines are failing & do not reduce the spread of the virus & neither do masks. Vaccine mandates & passports violate individual freedoms."
Coronavirus cases have surged in the US as the highly contagious Delta variant sweeps the country. Unvaccinated people make up the vast majority of new serious infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
