Twitter initially slapped a “misleading” label on a tweet that linked to an obituary of a mother of two who purportedly died from complications related to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Twitter user Kelly Bee, who shared the obit online, subsequently indicated that the social media platform removed the labeling but is still allegedly shadow-banning the tweet to prevent its reach.
According to the death notice published on Oregon Live, “Jessica Berg Wilson, 37, of Seattle, Wash., passed away unexpectedly Sept. 7, 2021 from COVID-19 Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT)…Jessica was an exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions.”
The obit goes on to explain that, “She had been vehemently opposed to taking the vaccine, knowing she was in good health and of a young age and thus not at risk for serious illness. In her mind, the known and unknown risks of the unproven vaccine were more of a threat.”
The obit also implies that Wilson only agreed to get the jab so that she could volunteer as a “room mom” at the school attended by her two children, ages three and five.
Thank you everyone for sharing… it appears Twitter has removed the "misleading" label.

A mandate in effect in Washington state under Democrat Gov. Jay Inslee requires the COVID vax for those working in K-12 and in childcare, among various other sectors. Many Americans are pro-vaccine, however, but at the same time oppose government mandates that they believe infringe on individual freedom.
Thrombotic thrombocytopenia is a rare blood disorder that leads to blood clots throughout the body and reportedly often occurs in females in the age 20-50 range. According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “This adverse event is rare, occurring at a rate of about 7 per 1 million vaccinated women between 18 and 49 years old. For women 50 years and older and men of all ages, this adverse event is even more rare.”
The CDC indicates that this condition manifests itself in just one of the vaccine options; the obituary did not indicate which one Jessica Berg Wilson received. The CDC otherwise says that “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.”
Along with the corporate media, Big Tech generally frowns upon discussions about the safety or efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine regimen and takes steps to tamp them down.
Twitter also originally linked the tweet to an article that explained “why health officials consider COVID-19 safe for most people.”
Various conservative luminaries called out Twitter for censorship in the way it “fact-checked” the initial tweet, which may have convinced the left-leaning platform to remove the advisory notice.
Responses to the follow-up tweet are still coming in. Here is a sampling of both:
😔 when is enough going to be enough?
The vaccine is obviously not for everyone.
Check the Vaers report.
I know someone who passed away from the vaccine as well.
Healthy 56 year old woman.
The vaccine took her out in 3 days.
These Biden mandates are murdering these people. https://t.co/OCCe4oVOXM

Hey @jack, Jessica was healthy and died.
Why are you censoring that fact as “misleading??” https://t.co/4XStEcc9AV

Twitter is now censoring obituaries. https://t.co/1hmY1TtVms

Tagged as “misinformation” yet their link takes you to the CDC statement saying “safe for most people”.
So what HAPPENED to this lady is actually not misinformation, but confirmed in the CDC statement that it’s not safe for all.
Prayers for her family. 😔

Meanwhile obituaries stating “deceased died of Covid, blames the unvaccinated on her death bed” make national headline news.
Not suspicious at all

I’m Pro vax and I’m amazed at Twitter for blocking something that’s literally listed in the fact sheet by the CDC the world health organization medsafe and the NHS

YES! Twitter has removed the “misleading” tag from this tweet. This is the power of the people.
Finally some sanity. I guess even Twitter couldn’t call a Covid vaccine death OBITUARY “misleading”
