A Project Veritas-leaked Facebook conference call shows CEO Mark Zuckerberg seemingly violating his own platform's current rules, saying he didn't understand the long-term effects of "modifying people's DNA and RNA," in reference to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Last week Facebook said it will be expanding their efforts to remove false claims about the COVID-19 vaccine. The official Facebook policy further states that it will specifically remove any content that "claims that the COVID-19 vaccine changes people's DNA."
Project Veritas' James O'Keefe says the leaked footage from July 2020 shows Zuckerberg expressing views that would violate his own policy today.
"Some caution on this because we just don't the long-term side effects of basically modifying people's DNA and RNA," Zuckerberg is heard saying in the leaked footage.
O'Keefe presents a later interview with Zuckerberg and Dr. Anthony Fauci that took place in November 2020, where Zuckerberg is heard expressing an opposite view against the idea that the vaccine could change someone's DNA.
"Just to clear up one point, my understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA. So that’s just an important point to clarify," Zuckerberg says in the interview.
