Facebook and Instagram join Twitter and also eliminate Bolsonaro’s controversial messages

The social networks Facebook and Instagram have deleted a video published on Sunday by the President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, and in which he encouraged the population to ignore the measures of confinement, as Twitter did several hours earlier with several posts by the president.

The three companies have considered in this case that the messages are contrary to the basic guidelines on public health. A Facebook spokesman recalled that both this network and Instagram “do not allow disinformation that can cause real harm to people,” according to the G1 portal.

Bolsonaro, who on Monday refused to comment on Twitter censorship, alleging that it is a private company, had uploaded several videos to the Internet in which he appeared with his followers on the streets of Brasilia, the country’s capital, while urging them to contribute. to the growth of the economy.

The president thus skipped the measures imposed by his own government on the importance of maintaining a safety distance due to the pandemic, which has left 165 dead and more than 4,600 infected in the country.

The content released by the President contradicts the indications given by health experts worldwide, as well as those of his own Minister of Health, Luiz Henrique Mandetta.

In one of the deleted videos, Bolsonaro spoke with a street vendor, defends that people continue to work and says that it is “those over 65 who stay at home.” In another recording, he criticizes the isolation measures after entering a supermarket and talks about the use of chloroquine to cope with the virus. Furthermore, it defends the end of social isolation.
