Madonna’s post taken down for 'false information' on Covid-19, Internet calls her a ‘f**king dangerous idiot'
Madonna’s latest Instagram post on a cure for Covid-19 has been taken down by the website for propagating “false information”. The singer shared the post only an hour ago and wrote, "The Truth will set us all Free! But some people don't want to hear the truth. Especially the people in power who stand to make money from this long drawn out search for a vaccine Which has been proven and has been available for months. They would rather let fear control them and let the rich get richer and the poor and sick get sicker. This woman is my hero. Thank you Stella Immanuel.”
While the contents of the post are hidden, it has been marked as “False Information” by independent fact-checkers. While one of it states, “False: Hydroxychloroquine is not a COVID-19 cure," another reads, “False: There is not a cure yet for COVID-19, so masks are still important and a vaccine is needed.” Madonna’s post came only a day after a video of “America's Frontline Doctors”, declaring Hydroxychloroquine as a cure for Covid-19 went viral. The clip was even shared by President Donald Trump who came under fire for providing the public with “fake information”.
While both Facebook and Twitter reportedly have taken down the viral video for misleading people about having found a cure for the novel coronavirus, Madonna went ahead and shared the same bit of information which hasn’t been well received by her fans or others. Commenting under her post one wrote on Instagram, “Are you f**king kidding me?! trump shared this too,” while another added, “Damn. All those years together. My friend and I are actually listening to all your albums in order. We are up to Confessions, however, Bedtime Stories is my favorite. Why you want to post this kind of bullshit is beyond me.”
Meanwhile, a few took to Twitter to react to Madonna sharing misleading information about a deadly disease, “risking” the lives of many who could blindly believe her. While one agitated user wrote, “F**king dangerous idiots all”, another added, “I don't think Madonna knows much about anything — anymore.” And, some of the Twitter users are wondering if the singer would become the latest target of the cancel culture following her latest mishap. “any #madonna fans have intel on this situation? is she canceled or is she being attacked?” read the tweet.
