Loeffler's embrace of Greene comes following decisions from multiple social media platforms, including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, to crack down on accounts supporting the QAnon conspiracy, which baselessly alleges, among several other theories, that top Democratic politicians are linked to a supposed international ring of child sex traffickers.

Supporters of the theory have baselessly linked the alleged plot to Jewish billionaire George Soros, and frequently use anti-Semitic imagery and language in discussions about the theory.

Greene has attempted to disassociate herself from the QAnon movement, later walking back her support after finding "misinformation." Earlier this year, in one of her posts supporting the theory, she characterized "Q" in a video unearthed by The Daily Beast, saying: "Many of the things that [Q] has given clues about and talked on 4Chan and other forums have really proven to be true."

She has also walked back past statements that questioned the facts surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including her remarks questioning whether the Pentagon was hit by a missile during the attacks.
