On January 7, Governor Newsom tweeted a video with the caption, "California is the true freedom state. Protecting liberty from a rising tide of oppression taking root in statehouses. Weakness, masquerading as strength. Small men in big offices. Freedom is who we are – anyone from anywhere can accomplish anything here." In reply, Carano tweeted four pictures with no caption. The headlines on the pictures read: "California Law strips Licenses from 'Misinformation'-Spreading Doctors"; "California bans singing in places of worship as pandemic worsens in state"; "Paddle boarder chased by boat, arrested in Malibu after flouting coronavirus closures"; and "California city officials dump 37 tons of sand over skate park to stop rebellious skateboarders from breaking state's stay at home orders." Two of the pictures dated back to 2020.

A couple of users came in support of the Governor and wrote, "Making laws to protect people from themselves and others is a violation of freedom in your opinion? Okay." "I think it’s actually a good thing that my doctor can’t just tell me false information and get away with it. I’d rather it be illegal for my doctor to prescribe me windex," wrote another user, referring to the headline in the first picture.
