MADONNA had a banned coronavirus conspiracy video promoting a potentially dangerous drug removed from her Instagram account.
It introduced the controversial Dr Stella Immanuel and members of a group called America’s Frontline Doctors, claiming that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine cures the disease.
The full 45-minute video and snippets of it were taken from social media sites Facebook, Twitter and Instagram after it began circulating online.
The World Health Organization says there is “no evidence” that the drug is effective against the coronavirus and adds that its misuse can cause illness and even death.
Madonna’s post was immediately slapped with a bogus informational warning and followers said the material was being reviewed by independent reviewers.
She wrote alongside the clip, “The truth will set us all free. But some people don’t want to hear the truth.
“Especially the people in power who are likely to make money from this long search for a vaccine that has been proven and has been available for months.
“They prefer to let fear control them and let the rich get richer and the poor and the sick get sicker. ”
The pop legend called Dr Immanuel “my hero” despite his homophobic views and previous bizarre claims.
She said that conditions like endometriosis are caused by “sex demons” and claims that non-humans rule America.
In 2013, she spoke of “spiritual husbands” and said, “They are responsible for serious gynecological problems. We call them all kinds of names – endometriosis, we call them molar pregnancies, we call them fibroids, we call them cysts, but most of them are evil deposits of the spiritual husband.
And two years later, doctors claimed they were using alien DNA, saying, “They use all kinds of DNA, even alien DNA, to treat people.
Riverdale actor KJ Apa is also facing backlash after sharing the video and urging his fans to “watch and share it.”
He was accused of “talking shit” and even told to quit social media.
US President Donald Trump is a supporter of hydroxychloroquine, revealing that he took it for 14 days to prevent him from contracting Covid-19.
He posted Dr. Immanuel’s video, which was filmed on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, to his Twitter account for his 84 million subscribers.
Trump’s son Don Jr was suspended from the platform for 12 hours after sharing it.
In the video, Dr Immanuel says: “The virus has a cure, it’s called hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Zithromax.
“You don’t need masks. There is a cure. I know they don’t want to open schools. No, you don’t need people to be locked up. There is prevention and there is a cure. ”
She called all the reports “fake science”.
His words were defended by President Trump who, just yesterday, described Dr. Immanuel as “impressive”.

“She was on the air with a lot of other medics,” Trump said. “They were big fans of hydroxychloroquine. And I found that she was very impressive in the sense that where she was from – I don’t know what country she is from – but she says she has had huge success with hundreds of different patients and i Thought her voice was an important voice but I don’t know anything about her. ”
He insisted that the drug was “safe” and “did not cause problems”.
But social media bosses feel different and don’t want video on their platforms.
A Twitter spokesperson told the BBC: “The tweets with the video are in violation of our Covid-19 disinformation policy. We are acting in accordance with our policy here.
While a Facebook representative said, “We removed this video for sharing false information about cures and treatments for Covid-19. ”
