In a video posted to Rumble on Friday, Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe said that streaming service YouTube removed a video from Project Veritas that exposed Pfizer's exploration of Covid virus mutation for the purpose of developing future vaccines.
The free speech activist group was also given a "strike" and a temporary restriction on their ability to upload content. YouTube's apparent justification of the removal was "due to a violation of our Community Guidelines."
YouTube cited "medical misinformation" as the reason for their action, saying "YouTube doesn't allow claims about COVID-19 vaccination that contradict expert consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization (WHO)."
O'Keefe points out that "these were not our claims, these were the claims of a director at Pfizer.
"I really think it's third-world that big, massive corporations team up with big tech monopolies to target journalism in these United States," he added. "It's just wrong and I think they'll regret doing this."
"We know that there are sources at Pfizer today that tell us that Pfizer's going through turmoil today," O'Keefe added. "A lot of people talking about what they're doing inside, they're in damage control mode, there's more information coming out. Nothing stops Project Veritas."
Late on Friday, Pfizer officially responded to the allegations, claiming that the company "has not conducted gain of function or directed evolution research." This was followed by two paragraphs explaining that sometimes "the virus may be engineered to enable the assessment of antiviral activity" so they can "assess whether the main protease can mutate to yield resistant strains of the virus."
On Wednesday, Project Veritas released footage that showed Pfizer's Director of Research and Development Jordon Trishton Walker discussing how the vaccine-makers are attempting to "mutate" COVID via "Directed Evolution" in order to preempt the development of future vaccines, describing the process as a potential "cash cow."
"Directed Evolution" began to trend on Twitter shortly thereafter.
After being confronted by O'Keefe about his revealing of the company's plans, Walker got angry and assaulted the Project Veritas founder, attempting to break the iPad containing the incriminating footage.
Editor’s note: A previous version of this story referred to Walker as a Pfizer exec. He is, in fact, a director.
