Twitter locked the account of Donald Trump Jr. for approximately 12 hours, after the president’s son posted a viral video of doctors touting Hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.

The video, which received over 14 million views before it was blacklisted and scrubbed by Facebook, Twitter and YouTube following a complaint by a New York Times employee, featured members of America’s Frontline Doctors – a recently formed advocacy group which claims that American life has fallen casualty to a massive disinformation campaign” against Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) – a decades-old malaria drug used by India and several other countries as part of their front-line treatment of the novel coronavirus, yet which has shown mixed efficacy in studies.

The press conference began with South Carolina Congressman Ralph Norman discussing the need to get America’s children back to school, before the doctors introduce themselves and describe their experiences with HCQ.

Reactions to Silicon Valley’s decision to scrub the press conference, as well as Trump Jr.’s temporary suspension, have drawn the ire of supporters and free speech advocates alike.
