Anti-Vaxxer Claiming COVID-19 Vaccines are Magnetic Got Suspended on Twitter

The anti-vaxxer spreading the conspiracy theory that COVID-19 vaccines are magnetic, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, has been kicked out of Twitter.

SPAIN – 2021/03/03: In this photo illustration a medical syringe seen displayed in front of the Twitter logo.

Tenpenny, who goes by the username @BusyDrT on Twitter, falsely testified that COVID-19 vaccines have properties that stick the arms of people to metal.

Anti-Vaxxer Claiming COVID-19 Vaccines are Magnetic

Ohio news outlet, Cleveland19, reported that Twitter suspended the account of Tenpenny.

Currently, the page of the anti-vaxxer only leads to a link directing to the Twitter Rules, saying that the social media giant suspends accounts violating just that.

The anti-vaxxer doctor made it to the headlines after she testified at the Ohio House Health Committee Hearing, spitting lies that the COVID-19 vaccine will make people magnetic. She said during her testimony that: "I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures all over the internet of people who have had these shots, and now they’re magnetized."

Furthermore, Tenpenny falsely claimed that spoons and forks stick to those who got their COVID-19 shots.

Twitter has yet to explain the reason behind suspending the doctor.

Move to Suspend the Anti-Vaxxer Doctor

According to Insider, a non-government organization, Center for Countering Digital Hate, has been strongly campaigning for the suspension of Tenpenny’s Twitter account.

The disinformation and hate watchdog said that Tenpenny is part of what the NGO dubs as the "Disinformation Dozen," which they say is behind 65% of the content that discourages taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

The suspended anti-vaxxer leads a movement against vaccination, and is also the author of a book with a bold statement, "Saying No to Vaccine."

COVID-19 Vaccines is Not Magnetic

Scientists have since debunked that COVID-19 vaccines make people magnetic, proving that such conspiracy theories are far from reality.

Edward Hutchinson, a Centre for Virus Research of the University of Glasgow lecturer, put straight to Newsweek that vaccines do not contain any proponents that will make a person magnetic.

Hutchinson said that if vaccines have magnetic material, its properties should have made a visible bulge on a person’s arms as it sticks to metals or magnets, which videos on the internet failed to show.

LEIPZIG, GERMANY – JULY 01: Medical staff prepares syringes that contain the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine against Covid-19 at a mass vaccination center on July 1, 2021 in Leipzig, Germany. Germany, where approximately 55% of the population have received a first dose and approximately 36% are fully vaccinated, has expanded its vaccinations to younger age groups. Meanwhile, although the infection rate has plummeted, authorities are becoming increasingly concerned over the spread of the Delta variant, which now accounts for half of new infections.

Meanwhile, Al Edwards, University of Reading associate professor, asserted that magnetic materials are painful to inject into a person’s arm. He goes on to explain that it is the reason why vaccines are mainly composed of water and salt — the vaccine itself is a minimal part of it.

COVID-19 Vaccines and 5G

Tenpenny has another allegation against vaccines. The doctor continued to spread misinformation that vaccines have 5G chips that could connect a person to the network wirelessly.

The false information that COVID-19 is 5G-ready has birthed to speculation that there is a "confidential" document proving it, but it was proven untrue later on. Conspiracy theorists believe that Bill Gates will track those vaccinated through wireless technology.
