Jessica Wilson: Twitter slammed for flagging Covid vaccine death obit as 'misleading'
Jessica Wilson's Twitter obit said she 'passed away from Covid Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia,' adding that she didn't want to get vaxxed
After Twitter flagged the obituary of a Seattle woman whose death was reportedly connected to a disease induced by the Covid-19 vaccine, critics slammed the social media platform, forcing the platform to retract the 'misleading' label.
The obituary for Jessica Berg Wilson was first shared by Twitter user Kelly Bee on October 2, with the caption "an 'exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions,' passed away from Covid Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia. She did not want to get vaccinated." Twitter had flagged the tweet as 'misleading' with a link to an article on "why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people." The post was also 'shadow banned,' which meant that Twitter users could not reply, share, or like the tweet.
Seattle, WA — 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. She did not want to get vaccinated. 😥— Kelly Bee 🐝 (@ke11ybender) October 2, 2021
After Twitter chose to flag her tweet, Bee posted a couple of follow-up tweets on her page. One of them urged people to make the obituary go viral so that more people can speak up against Twitter's censorship. "Twitter has shadowbanned this obituary for being 'misleading.' It's not. Please RT, so this BS backfires on them," she wrote in one tweet In another she declared success. "Thank you everyone for sharing... it appears Twitter has removed the 'misleading' label," she said.

'When is enough going to be enough?'
Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy tweeted the obituary with the caption, "For [on Twitter] we are not afraid to follow the truth wherever it may lead,' unless of course it contradicts what Dr. Fauci or the enlightened government and tech overlords say you must do for your healthcare… #HealthcareFreedom." Ben Domenech, a writer for The Federalist, wrote, "Who @Twitter decided it was okay to say an OBITUARY is 'misleading'?"
Tyler Cardon, the CEO of Blaze Media, tweeted it with the caption, "There is nothing inaccurate or misleading about this Tweet, but Twitter wants you to believe there is." Conservative actress Gina Carano shared the obituary and tweeted, "When is enough going to be enough? The vaccine is obviously not for everyone. Check the [Vaccine Adverse Event Recording System] report. I know someone who passed away from the vaccine as well. Healthy 56 year old woman. The vaccine took her out in 3 days. These Biden mandates are murdering these people."

Pensive face when is enough going to be enough?
The vaccine is obviously not for everyone.
Check the Vaers report. I know someone who passed away from the vaccine as well. Healthy 56 year old woman. The vaccine took her out in 3 days.
Who was Jessica Wilson?
Jessica Wilson was 37 at the time of her death and was a mother of two. She died on September 7 of Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, which is a rare blood disease in which tiny clots form throughout the body. The disease destroyss platelets and preventing the blood from reaching vital organs, according to the obituary.
Wilson's greatest goal in life was to "be the best mother possible" to her daughters Bridget, 5, and Clara, 3. "Nothing would stand in her way to be present in their lives," it reads. "During the last weeks of her life, however, 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 disparaged government vaccine mandates, stated it as Wilson's cause of death. "But, slowly, day by day, her freedom to choose was stripped away. Her passion to be actively involved in her children's education—which included being a Room Mom—was, once again, blocked by government mandate. Ultimately, those who closed doors and separated mothers from their children prevailed. It cost Jessica her life. It cost her children the loving embrace of their caring mother. And it cost her husband the sacred love of his devoted wife. It cost God's Kingdom on earth a very special soul who was just making her love felt in the hearts of so many," the obituary said.
It is not clear which COVID-19 vaccine Wilson received or when she was diagnosed with VITT. The obituary also does not mention if she sought treatment for the disease before succumbing to it.
