Author Naomi Wolf has been suspended from Twitter after spreading misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic on the social media platform.

The BBC reports the author behind the critically acclaimed third-wave feminist book "The Beauty Myth" was recently banned from Twitter after posting unfounded theories about the coronavirus and vaccines to her more than 140,000 followers.

The news outlet reports that in one of Wolf’s most recent tweets, she said the urine and feces of people who had been vaccinated needed to be separated from the general sewage system while studies are done to measure the impact on unvaccinated people through drinking water. 

Wolf has also falsely claimed that vaccines are a “software platform that can receive uploads,” and reportedly compared the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, Anthony Fauci, to Satan. 

The Guardian reports that Wolf, who was once a political adviser to Al Gore and former President Clinton, told a U.S. congressional committee last month that so-called vaccine passports would “re-create a situation that is very familiar to me as a student of history. This has been the start of many, many genocides.” 

Many Twitter users applauded the suspension. 

“As a historian of #autism, I’ve been reading vile anti-vaccine propaganda for 20 years, and Wolf’s claims were as out-there and delusional as I’ve ever seen,” author Steve Silberman wrote

Others, however, voiced concern the ban was stifling free speech and called for her account to be reinstated.
