Madonna came under fire on social media after seemingly backing a series of false claims about coronavirus.
The Vogue singer posted the viral video on Tuesday, showing a group of people making unsubstantiated claims about the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the footage, the group, which calls itself America’s Frontline Doctors, speaks in front of the Supreme Court, claiming that neither masks nor shutdowns are necessary to fight the pandemic.
Among those featured in the clip was Stella Immanuel, who has a history of making outlandish claims, including that endometriosis is caused by sex with demons.
“The truth will set us all Free! But some people dont (sic) want to hear the truth,” Madonna captioned the post. “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,” the Express Yourself star added. “This woman is my hero… Thank you Stella Immanuel.”
Bosses at Instagram made the decision to display a “False Information” warning before the post could be viewed, citing facts to correct the post. Officials at Facebook, YouTube and Twitter have previously removed the videos.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organisation, there is no known cure for the coronavirus or the disease it causes.
