Joe Biden, the current and the 46th President of the U.S., recently slammed Facebook and the other large social media platforms with some really harsh words. When an NBC News reporter asked the President about the spread of misinformation related to COVID-19 and its vaccines on such social media sites, Biden said “They’re killing people”. He continued by stating “The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated”.
Facebook clearly took issue with these statements and a company spokesperson responded by saying, “We will not be distracted by accusations which aren’t supported by the facts”. Earlier today, the social media giant published a blog post discussing its active role in combating misinformation and the general engagement that it has been involved in for fighting against COVID-19.
