Did Justin Bieber blame the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the permanent paralysis of his face?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Justin Bieber Blamed Pfizer Vaccine For His Paralysis!
Vancouver Times just posted a story claiming that Justin Bieber blamed the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the permanent paralysis of his face!
Truth : Justin Bieber Did NOT Blame Pfizer Vaccine For His Paralysis!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to generate page views and money from gullible people.
Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website
Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.
To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.
To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.
Fact #2 : They Relabel Fake Stories As Satire
The Satire section in Vancouver Times appears to be a place where their fake stories go to “die”.
It looks like their SOP is to post fake stories as genuine news, to trick people and go viral. They will then shift their fake stories to the Satire section after getting fact checked.
They first posted this fake story about Justin Bieber under their America section, only moving it to their Satire section after I fact checked it.
Here are some of the fake news that they created recently, that we debunked :
- Paul Pelosi Was Arrested For Child Porn + Cocaine!
- Amber Heard Was Just Arrested For Perjury, Cocaine + Meth!
- Rapper Lil Keed Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!
- Pfizer VP Rady Johnson Was Arrested For Vaccine Fraud!
- Gilbert Gottfried’s Wife Said He Was Killed By COVID-19 Vaccine!
Fact #3 : Justin Bieber Did Not Blame Pfizer Or Vaccine
Justin Bieber himself explained on his verified Instagram account that his facial paralysis was caused by a viral infection, not the Pfizer vaccine :
Vancouver Times falsely claimed that Justin told a friend who leaked it to Daily Mail, and added a link to trick you into believing it’s real.
The truth is – the Daily Mail article only detailed his Ramsay Hunt diagnosis, and did not claim he blamed the COVID-19 vaccine for it. In fact, the words “vaccine” of “Pfizer” do not even appear in the entire article!
Fact #4 : Justin Bieber Did Not Say His Paralysis Is Permanent
Vancouver Times falsely claimed that Justin Bieber said that his facial paralysis is permanent.
In fact, he told his fans that he will “get back to 100 per cent” by resting and doing facial exercises.
That would obviously not be the case if his doctors told him that his facial paralysis is permanent.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is treated by antiviral medication like acyclovir or famciclovir, as well as corticosteroids like methylprednisolone.
Generally, a high percentage of patients (70.4%) will recover completely with treatment, although some degree of facial paralysis and hearing loss may become permanent in some cases.
Fact #5 : Justin Bieber Did Not Say He Plans To Sue Pfizer
To be clear – Justin Bieber did not say that he plans to sue Pfizer for causing his condition. Vancouver Times made that up, to drive traffic to their website.
No one knows if Bieber was even vaccinated, never mind receiving the Pfizer vaccine.
Even if he was vaccinated, he could have received the Moderna vaccine or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine – the other two COVID-19 vaccines approved in the United States.
What is clear though is that Justin Bieber never said he wants to sue Pfizer because their “vaccine ruined his life”.
