The writer also compared Dr. Anthony Fauci, immunologist and Covid-19's top advisor in the United States, to the devil.

In another recent tweet, she said that “vaccinated people's urine and faeces” should be separated from general sewage until they know how it might affect the drinking water supply. Furthermore, according to the tabloid The Guardian, during a US Congressional Committee, she also stated that passports for the vaccinated "would recreate a very familiar situation" that would result in "the beginning of many, many genocides."

For many Twitter users, the decision was the most sensible and came at a good time. For Steve Silberman, an award-winning journalist and autism historian, the journalist's posts are the worst he's ever seen.

“I've read vile anti-vaccination propaganda for 20 years, and Wolf's claims are the most exaggerated and delusional I've ever seen,” wrote the writer.

Likewise, many criticized, claiming that the measure violates freedom of expression. But, according to Twitter, the suspension is permanent and no appeals will be allowed.
