Justin Bieber said Jay-Z rapes + murders kids in Satanic rituals?!

Did Justin Bieber say that Jay-Z rapes and murders children in Satanic rituals?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Justin Bieber Said Jay-Z Rapes + Murders Kids In Satanic Rituals!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that Justin Bieber told his church congregation that Jay-Z rapes and murders children in Satanic rituals!

Truth : Justin Bieber Did Not Say Jay-Z Rapes + Murders Kids In Satanic Rituals!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Justin Bieber Ever Said That

The People’s Voice claimed that Justin Bieber told his church congregation on February 28 that Jay-Z rapes and murders children in occult Satanic rituals.

However, a quick check showed that The People’s Voice is the only source for this shocking claim. This is surprising since celebrity blogs and mainstream media outlets have, and certainly would have, reported on such controversial claims… if Justin Bieber he actually made them.

Yet, no one else has apparently seen or heard Justin Bieber claim that Jay-Z and his close associates rape and murder children in occult Satanic rituals!

Unfortunately, but perhaps not surprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claims.

Fact #2 : Jay-Z Never Called Satanism The Real American Religion

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that Jay-Z said that “Satanism is the real American religion”. There is no evidence Jay-Z ever said that. If he actually said that, it would have been covered widely by celebrity blogs and even the mainstream media.

Yet, there is no legitimate news coverage of Jay-Z ever calling Satanism the “real American religion”, and The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its claim.

Fact #3 : Jay-Z Did Not Wear That Sweatshirt In D.O.A. Video

The People’s Voice article claimed that Jay-Z wore the “Luciferian moral code” of “Do What Thou Wilt” across chest in his D.O.A. video. That’s easily disproven.

Anyone who watched Jay-Z’s D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune) music video can clearly see he never wore any sweatshirt with the words “Do What Thou Wilt“. He only wore a plain black t-shirt, and a black leather jacket.

Jay-Z actually wore that “Do What Thou Wilt” hoodie / sweatshirt in the making-of video for “Run This Town“. If The People’s Voice cannot even get this right… you have to wonder – what else did they get wrong?

Incidentally, there are tons of such “Do What Thou Wilt” hoodies available on Amazon – here, here, here, and here. Do people buy them as a statement of their beliefs, or just because they look pretty neat? Who knows?

Fact #4 : Do What Thou Wilt Refers To “True Will”

The central axiom of Thelema – “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law” refers to the pursuit of one’s true path – the “True Will”, which is essentially one’s “calling” or “purpose” in life, and not the ordinary wants and desires of the ego.

Fact #5 : Thelema Is Not Satanism

Thelema is a new religious movement founded by English mystic and occultist, Aleister Crowley. It is not Satanism, because it’s not based on Christianity, and has no concept of Satan or the Devil.

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Truth : Justin Bieber Did Not Die In Car Accident!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page / video views and advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos have been circulating for days now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Justin Bieber’s death.

Justin Bieber is a megastar, with a beautiful celebrity model wife. If something happened to him, not will it be eagerly reported on by celebrity blogs, the worldwide media would no doubt cover it too.

When Justin Bieber revealed that he is suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, the worldwide media breathlessly reported on his condition, including he cancelled the rest of his concerts.

No legitimate media outlet has reported that Justin Bieber died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites like NewsC60 / Fact Journal Media / NewsC8, or random YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos?

Fact #2 : Justin Bieber Is Still Alive + Well!

Justin Bieber is still very much alive and well, as of Sunday, 14 January, 2024. Of course, you want “proof of life”, don’t you?

Well, Justin Bieber himself posted a series of photos and videos on Instagram on 7 January 2024, to share how excited he is for 2024:

excited for this next year. New beginnings

One of them is a video of him playing golf. Needless to say – he looks very well, f or someone who allegedly got smashed into pieces in a terrible car accident.

This happened many days, weeks and even months after those YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos claimed that he died in a high speed car accident! What a miracle!

Obviously, we can confirm that all those videos and articles about Justin Bieber dying from a tragic car accident are FAKE.

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber “Died Suddenly” Photos Were Edited

I analysed this photo used in some of the videos, and confirmed that Justin Bieber wasn’t even involved in that car accident, never mind die in it.

This is actually a photo of a car accident that happened in July 2022, involving Justin Bieber’s step grandmother, Kathy Bieber.

Marty Denham was outside his shop when he heard a loud noise on Lorne Avenue West and saw one vehicle had collided with another.

“I had my back to it, I turned around, there was probably a five-count and the entire car blew up behind them,” he said.

One of the vehicles was consumed by flames almost instantly.

That’s when Denham saw a woman jump out of the car to safety.

“We thought we were watching a person die because we thought the girl was the passenger.”

Denham said one of the people involved in the crash was Kathy Bieber, who is married to the pop star’s grandfather on his dad’s side of the family.

Fact #4 : Justin Bieber Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Justin Bieber death hoax is, ironically, also being driven by a fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which appears to regularly update / change the dates.

News of singer Justin Bieber’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the January 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the singer best known for hit songs like Beauty and a Beat, Boyfriend or Baby is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Justin Bieber Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Justin Bieber’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Did mRNA Vaccine Creator Develop Bell’s Palsy?!

Did mRNA vaccine creator, Ozlem Tureci, just develop Bell’s palsy after getting vaccinated against COVID-19?! Find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-01-12 : Added more information on Bell’s palsy and Justin Bieber
Originally posted @ 2024-01-11

 

Claim : mRNA Vaccine Creator Has Bell’s Palsy!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch) and The Daily Sceptic (archive), claiming or suggesting that the co-creator of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine creator, Ozlem Tureci, is suffering from Bell’s palsy after getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

The People’s Voice even alleges in its article that there was a media blackout. Here’s an excerpt:

mRNA Vaccine Creator Has Developed Full-Blown Facial Paralysis – Media Blackout

Here is an excerpt from The Daily Sceptic. Please skip to the next section for the facts.

BioNTech-Pfizer Vaccine Creator Obviously Suffers From Bell’s Palsy – But No One Talks About It

Recommended : Were COVID-19 Vaccines Recalled After 40K Deaths?!

BioNTech founders – Uğur Şahin and Özlem Türeci

 

No Evidence mRNA Vaccine Creator Has Bell’s Palsy!

This appears to be yet another example of FAKE NEWS, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Bell’s Palsy Not Commonly Seen With COVID-19 Vaccines

Bell’s palsy is not commonly seen with COVID-19 vaccines. In fact, it is not even officially listed as a COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Studies (example) have shown that the post-vaccination incidence of Bell’s palsy is about the same as that of the baseline incidence.

  • Baseline : 25 cases per 100,000 population per year
  • Post-vaccination : 25.3 cases per 100,000 population per year

When people point out that four people in the Pfizer clinical trial developed Bell’s palsy, they conveniently leave out the fact that with the large sample size, roughly four people were expected to develop Bell’s palsy even without vaccination. So the incidence of Bell’s palsy in the Pfizer clinical trial was within normal incidence.

Fact #2 : Ozlem Tureci Does Not Appear To Have Bell’s Palsy!

Frankly, it is a terrible idea to remotely diagnose any medical condition. But as far as I can see, Dr. Ozlem Tureci does not appear to have Bell’s palsy.

Bell’s palsy presents as the sudden muscle weakness or paralysis on one side of the face. If Ozlem has Bell’s palsy, she won’t just have a drooping eyelid. She will have facial paralysis on the left side of her face – the left side of her mouth would also droop with a loss of the nasolabial fold, and she would not be able to close her eyes.

If you watch the videos which show her with a drooping eyelid, you can see that she’s speaking normally, and the corner of her mouth isn’t drooping to the left. There is also a visible nasolabial fold on the left side. All indications that she does not have Bell’s palsy.

Instead, Ozlem Tureci just appears to have ptosis – the drooping of her left eyelid. This is common in older people.

Fact #3 : Ozlem Had Drooping Eyelid Before mRNA Vaccine Approval

Dr. Ozlem Tureci was seen sporting a ptosis before the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 was ever approved for use in December 2020.

When The New York Times published its story on Dr. Özlem and her partner-husband, Dr. Uğur Şahin, on 10 November 2020, the marquee photo showed her with a pronounced ptosis – drooping of her left eyelid.

Yet, you can clearly see that her mouth was not drooping on the left side, and she still had a prominent nasolabial fold on the left side of her face.

Recommended : Did COVID-19 Vaccines Cause 17 Million Deaths?!

Fact #4 : Ozlem Had Drooping Eyelid As Early As 2016

Just in case you are wondering if she might have secretly tested the BioNTech mRNA vaccine on herself, she already had that ptosis more than 3 years before the COVID-19 pandemic started, and more than 4 years before the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA vaccine was approved.

On 29 August 2016, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper published a video on Dr. Özlem Türeci and Dr. Uğur Şahin developing customised cancer treatments.

In that video, you can clearly see that Dr. Ozlem already had a visible ptosis. But again, she was able to speak clearly, her mouth did not droop on the left side, and she had a visible nasolabial fold on the left.

Fact #5 : Bell’s Palsy Is Temporary

While the symptoms of Bell’s palsy are similar to that of a stroke, it isn’t a serious condition. Neither is it debilitating as some have suggested or claimed.

Bell’s palsy is also temporary – most people recover within 3 weeks, even without treatment. A small percentage will take 3-6 months to recover. Patients are generally treated with corticosteroids to speed recovery.

Even if Dr. Ozlem had Bell’s palsy at any point in time, it would have resolved by itself or with treatment, within a few months. As she appears to have a drooping left eyelid for at least 7.5 years now, her ptosis is most definitely not from Bell’s palsy.

Fact #6 : Justin Bieber Did Not Have Bell’s Palsy

Some people appear to be (intentionally?) conflating Ramsay Hunt Syndrome with Bell’s palsy. They have suggested or claimed that Justin Bieber was another victim of Bell’s palsy from COVID-19 vaccination. That’s simply not true.

Justin Bieber had Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, not Bell’s palsy. On top of that, he explained in June 2022 that his facial paralysis was caused by a viral infection.

I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.

As you can see this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face; this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.

Fact #7 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Did Justin Bieber Cancel Tour After Vaccine Injury?!

Did Justin Bieber cancel his Justice World Tour concerts after suffering a COVID-19 vaccine injury?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Justin Bieber Cancelled Tour After Vaccine Injury!

After Justin Bieber cancelled the remaining concerts for his Justice World Tour, people immediately claimed that he only did so after he couldn’t recover from his COVID-19 vaccine injury.

Steve Kirsch : Clearly, Justin Bieber still doesn’t realize he’s been vaccine injured and is not getting the proper treatment. Likely won’t ever figure it out. What a shame.

This kid needs to wake up to the fact that he’s vaccine injured & work with doctors who will treat it appropriately. Ramsay Hunt = shingles outbreak = consequence of Covid vaxx.

WWURD_Official : “I’m going to be ok” … um, no you’re not… #DiedSuddenly

You took a gene-therapy bio-weapon, deceptively labeled as a “vaccine,” under the guise of an Emergency Use Authorization.

Have a last will and testament prepared and above all, believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Justin Bieber Did NOT Cancel Tour After Vaccine Injury!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Justin Bieber Has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

On 10 June 2022, Justin Bieber announced on his verified Instagram account that he is taking a break from performing, because he was suffering from the Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

He never once said that his facial paralysis was due to the COVID-19 vaccine. His facial paralysis was caused by a viral infection, as Justin himself explained in his video :

I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.

As you can see this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face; this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.

Also known as herpes zoster oticus, the Ramsay Hunt syndrome refers to a shingles outbreak that affects the facial nerve, and can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss.

Fact #2 : Justin Bieber Temporarily Cancelled Tour Earlier

Justin Bieber resumed his Justice World Tour at the end of July 2022, but stopped after just six live shows. That time, he did not say that it was due to his Ramsay Hunt Syndrome diagnosis, or a vaccine injury.

He stated that he was simply overwhelmed with exhaustion, and wanted to take a break:

According to TMZ, a source with direct knowledge of this decision told them that a significant reason was mental health, and that Justin had been struggling in the last few years and that has taken a toll.

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber Did Not Reveal Reason For Cancelling Remaining Shows

On 28 February 2023, Justin Bieber officially cancelled the remaining concerts of his Justice World Tour. People who purchased tickets for those shows would be refunded.

However, neither Justin Bieber nor his reps have publicly commented on the cancellation, or given a reason for cancelling them.

Therefore, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Justin Bieber cancelled his Justice World Tour because of a vaccine injury, the Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, exhaustion, or mental health issues. We simply do NOT know WHY he cancelled the concerts.

Fact #4 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Caused His Facial Paralysis

COVID-19 vaccines have been associated with the rare side effect of temporary facial paralysis called Bell’s palsy.

Bell’s palsy may present similarly as Ramsay Hunt syndrome in the form of facial paralysis on one side of the face, but they are different conditions.

It’s like how you can break your leg in a car accident, or from falling off a ladder. It’s the same injury, but the causes are different.

This is why it is wrong to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis, when it developed from a past infection by an unrelated virus.

Fact #5 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Is Caused By Chickenpox Virus

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (Human alphaherpesvirus 3), which is the virus that causes chickenpox.

It has nothing to do with COVID-19, which is caused by a completely different virus – SARS-CoV-2, which is from a completely different virus family – Coronaviridae.

In fact, for Justin Bieber to develop Ramsay Hunt syndrome, he must have had a chickenpox infection in the past.

Even after a chickenpox infection resolves, the virus remains dormant in our nervous system. The dormant virus can reactivate later in life in about ⅓ of cases, causing shingles (herpes zoster).

Read more : Does the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine cause Bell’s palsy?

Fact #6 : Chickenpox Vaccine Prevents Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Shingles and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome are caused by the dormant varicella-zoster virus (VZV). They are prevented by the chickenpox vaccine.

By vaccinating children against chickenpox, you are also protecting them from shingles and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in the future.

Fact #7 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Was Not Caused By Vaccination

Anti-vaccination activists are pointing to a BMJ report from Hong Kong called “Ramsay Hunt syndrome following COVID-19 vaccination” as “evidence” that Bieber’s condition was caused by his COVID-19 vaccination.

There are a few problems with that claim :

  • No one knows if Justin Bieber was even vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • He was assumed to be vaccinated, because his concerts in February 2022 required people to be vaccinated.
  • The Hong Kong report detailed a single case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome in someone who was vaccinated. It was not a study that confirmed that COVID-19 vaccines cause the Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
  • The man in the report developed Ramsay Hunt syndrome two days after getting vaccinated.
  • If Justin Bieber was vaccinated, he would have been vaccinated last year, not recently.
  • Ramsay Hunt syndrome cannot occur without a prior chickenpox infection.
  • The Hong Kong authors postulated that after being vaccinated, the immune system’s ability to suppress the varicella zoster virus may have been temporarily dampened by the switch to producing immune cells that target the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

So let me state this clearly – Ramsay Hunt Syndrome cannot be caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, because it’s caused by a past infection of an unrelated virus. See Fact #3.

Even if that stressful event was the vaccination (which include fear of the vaccine), it cannot possibly occur in anyone who was not first infected by the varicella zoster virus.

Read more : Did Justin Bieber Get Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine?!

Fact #8 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Can Be Triggered By Stress / Infection

Like shingles, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) can be triggered by stress. Could the stress of preparing to perform have triggered Justin Bieber’s condition?

Why not? After all, RHS  naturally occurs in about 5 in 100,000 people per year. That’s approximately 400,000 cases per year globally.

RHS could have also been triggered by any infection, or medication that may suppress the immune system. Even a COVID-19 infection can potentially trigger RHS, but note that I’m not saying he got COVID-19. We also don’t know if he was on any medication.

Unless Justin happened to receive another booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine days before he developed RHS, it would be wrong to blame his condition on the vaccine.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Katy Perry : Why Did Her Eye Glitch On Stage?!

Video footage of Katy Perry suffering an eye glitch on stage has gone viral, with some people blaming it on the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2022-10-28 : Added Katy Perry’s official response to her eye glitch.

Claim : Katy Perry Suffered Eye Glitch From COVID-19 Vaccine!

A video of Katy Perry performing recently at Las Vegas has gone viral, after it showed her suffering some kind of eye glitch on stage.

The video, which was uploaded to TikTok, showed the 38 year-old singer struggling to open her right eye in the middle of her performance.

Almost immediately, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that she’s suffering from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. Here are some examples:

Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. It’s known as the Pfizer eye #PfizerEyes

#KatyPerry: Eye of the #Pfizer. Almost sad if she wasn’t another crazy cultist

Steve Kirsch : There is something very wrong here. My vaccine injured friends would bet the farm that it’s a vaccine injury. If it was the vaccine, she wouldn’t be able to admit it.

The fact that she has said nothing about this on her Twitter feed is also very suspicious. Everyone is talking about this. So it means there isn’t an explanation for this incident that she is allowed to share with the public that the public will believe (that is consistent with what we all observed).

So I’m guessing a COVID vaccine side effect.

Truth : Katy Perry Did NOT Get Eye Glitch From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Katy Perry Apparently Does This Quite Frequently

Katy Perry fans, who call themselves KatyCats, claim that it’s actually part of her act – to mimic old dolls that open and close their eyes when you tilt them.

OK so this is some weird gag she does at her show to resemble those old dolls that opened and closed their eyes when you tilted them.

I was kinda worried it was a stroke or surgery mishap. But no, she does that on purpose.

Yeah she does it pretty frequently during the show. Not every night but she’s done it at least once per 8 show run.

Fact #2 : Katy Perry Does Eye Glitch As Party Trick!

On October 28, Katy Perry publicly addressed the viral eye glitch video, explaining that it was just a “party trick” for her shows. This was what her fans pointed out earlier (see Fact #1 above).

She also mocked conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists who blamed it on the vaccine, calling them “flatearthers” “spaceisfakers”, “birdsarentrealers” and “skyisntbluers”.

She then invited them to watch her repeat her eye glitch party trick in her upcoming 2023 concerts! Such sass!

Read more : Katy Perry Uses Eye Glitch To Announce 2023 Shows!

Fact #3 : Katy Perry May Have Had An Itch

Here is a possible reason on Reddit for her closing an eyelid that only “magically” opened after she rubbed her temple.

Since there are no women on this sub, this is from my friend who is a professional makeup artist, ‘Katy has false lashes on in this. It’s likely there’s something in her eye, or bothering her eye, but she can’t rub them because it will ruin her make up.

Stage make up is very heavy and will get everywhere when you touch it. She’s gentling pulling her temple area to try and alleviate the itch or clear whatever is bothering her eye without doing damage. I have models that do this weekly.

Fact #4 : Katy Perry Has A Wonk Eye

While serving as a judge on the 16th season of American Idol in 2018, Katy Perry shared with a contestant Caleb Kennedy that she has a wonk eye, also known as a lazy eye :

I have a wonk eye as well, and I used to be worried about it. Then a bunch of my fans created a fandom over my wonk-eye. I even have a fandom that calls itself, ‘Katy’s wonk-eye.’

It’s my right eye. So just celebrate all that stuff. Don’t worry about it.

Antivax tech millionaire shared a YouTube video claiming to prove that Katy Perry’s wonk eye is actually her left eye. That video was likely flipped, as Katy herself said that it was her right eye that’s wonky.

Fact #5 : Katy Perry Could Have Had Blepharospasm

Whether her left or right eye is the wonky one, Katy Perry could have had blepharospasm – a fancy term for the involuntary twitching or closing of the eyelid.

Blepharospasm can happen to one or both eyes, and is characterised by “uncontrollable eyelid closure” and/or twitching of the eye muscles.

It is likely that she was touching her twitching facial muscles during the spasm, in an attempt to control them and regain control of her eyelid.

Nevertheless, she seemed unfazed by it, bellowing into the microphone, “Make even more noise for my band!

Fact #6 : Katy Perry Does Not Have Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Now, let me just clear up this nonsense claim that Katy Perry is suffering from the same Ramsay Hunt syndrome that Justin Bieber is suffering from.

The viral video clearly shows that only her eyelid is affected. She does not have half her face paralysed as some have claimed. If half her face had been paralysed, she would have trouble speaking, never mind singing!

Facial paralysis from Ramsay Hunt syndrome cannot be corrected by quickly touching her temple either.

Fact #7 : Katy Perry Does Not Have Bell’s Palsy

Similarly, Katy Perry isn’t suffering from Bell’s palsy, which presents similarly to Ramsay Hunt syndrome in the form of facial paralysis on one side of the face.

Again, she would not be able to speak or sing properly, if half her face was paralysed and this paralysis cannot be quickly fixed by simply touching her temple.

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Did Vaccine Injury Force Justin Bieber To Cancel Tour?!

Did COVID-19 vaccine injury force Justin Bieber to cancel his Justice World Tour?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Vaccine Injury Forced Justin Bieber To Cancel World Tour!

Right after Justin Bieber announced that he was cancelling his Justice World Tour, people started claiming it was due to a COVID-19 vaccine injury.

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on his announcement :

Im not a fan nor do i care about your concerts but it sounds like you have a vaccine injury. I do care about people..your wife too. Please go to [disinformation link removed]. thanks.

Justin Bieber cancels world tour due to vaccine complication

Justin Bieber is big time vaccine injured. Big time. But he cares way way way way way way to much about money to admit. Personally enjoying this.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Vaccine Injury Did NOT Force Justin Bieber To Cancel World Tour!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Justin Bieber Had Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

On 10 June 2022, Justin Bieber announced that he was taking a break from performing, after suffering from the Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

Also known as herpes zoster oticus, the Ramsay Hunt syndrome refers to a shingles outbreak that affects the facial nerve, and can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss.

I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.

As you can see this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face; this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome has nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine, despite what anti-vaccination claim.

Fact #2 : Justin Bieber Recovered From Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Justin Bieber recovered from Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, after resting and undergoing treatment.

In fact, after consulting with his doctors, he went back to continue with the Justice World Tour, performing six live shows.

Read more : Did Justin Bieber Get Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber Stopped Touring Because He Was Exhausted

When Justin Bieber announced that he was suspending his Justice World Tour again, he stated that he was exhausted and wanted to take a break.

He did not suffer a COVID-19 vaccine injury, as alleged. He was simply overwhelmed with exhaustion.

This tour suspension was not even caused by Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which causes facial paralysis but not exhaustion.

After resting and consulting with my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour. I performed six live shows, but it took a real toll on me. This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to my [sic] the people in Brazil.

After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now. So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be ok, but I need time to rest and get better.

Fact #4 : Justin Bieber Is Struggling With Mental Health

According to TMZ, a source with direct knowledge of this decision told them that a significant reason was mental health, and that Justin had been struggling in the last few years and that has taken a toll.

[A] significant reason for the suspension is mental health … Justin’s been struggling in the last few years and it has taken its toll. Another reason is his recent health scare which partially paralyzed his face.

The source also said that there is a chance that Justin will resume his Justice World Tour if he gets better, but for now – it’s suspended until further notice.

Is Balenciaga Selling Water Bottle Slippers For €895?!

Did Balenciaga just introduce water bottle slippers priced at €895?!

Take a look at the viral photos, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Balenciaga Is Selling Water Bottle Slippers For €895!

The Internet has gone crazy over photos of the new Balenciaga water bottle slippers, with comments like these :

“Bottle slippers? Balenciaga is testing how far people will go in the name of fashion” quip netizens as #Balenciaga Conceptualizes slippers made out of plastic bottles

#NEWS: Balenciaga releases ‘Bottle Slippers’ — with price tag of $1,000 USD, you coppin ??

Whose up for a pair of bottle slippers from Balenciaga? Only 895 euros

A number of fashion and celebrity blogs have also jumped onto the bandwagon, posting about these new high-fashion water bottle slippers.

 

Truth : Balenciaga Is NOT Selling Water Bottle Slippers For €895!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Balenciaga Water Bottle Slippers Do NOT Exist

First, let me just state that Balenciaga did not create any water bottle slippers. Those fancy and super-expensive water bottle slippers do NOT exist.

The viral photo showing that these bottle slippers can be purchased on the Balenciaga website for €895 was photoshopped.

That is indeed Justin Bieber in the photo below… but he did not model those bottle slippers either!

Read more : Did Justin Bieber Wear Balenciaga Bottle Slippers?!

Fact #2 : Balenciaga Bottle Slippers Were Created By neondazer

These viral water bottle slippers were just a concept created by a Russian artist / designer called neondazer (Max Arnautov).

He posted photos of the water bottle slippers, including the edited photo of Justin Bieber wearing them, on his Instagram on August 25, 2022.

Wassup hypebeasts, cop or drop? 😂

Meta-irony and metamodernism are best friends of modern fashion, guys. I guess this concept is meta-ironic towards Balenciaga, which became meta-ironic brand itself thanks to @Demna.

When this idea came to me, I thought: “So f*cking funny! But… I will not be surprised if Balenciaga gonna do something like that for real.”

They released earrings made of laces, destroyed Paris sneakers, a trench shitted by birds.. so this bottle slippers are fitting perfectly! Cuz it’s all about overconsumption and its fruits.

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber Photo Was From Balenciaga Fall 2021 Campaign

The Justin Bieber photo that neondazer edited was taken from the Balenciaga Fall 2021 campaign, per GQ.

Taken by photographer Katy Grannan, it featured a clean-shaven Justin Bieber wearing a black leather bomber, scrunchy black sweatpants, white tube socks… and a pair of Balenciaga dad core running sneakers.

neondazer edited out the dadcore running sneakers, and replaced them with his own bottle slippers.

Why Steve Kirsch Is 100% Wrong On Justin Bieber’s Paralysis!

Tech millionaire Steve Kirsch claims he is 99% certain that Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. Find out why he is 100% wrong!

Updated @ 2022-06-13 : Addressed Steve Kirsch’s new claims.
Originally posted @ 2022-06-11

 

Steve Kirsch Is 99% Certain Justin Bieber’s Paralysis Was Caused By Vaccine?

In case you guys don’t know him, Steve Kirsch is a tech millionaire who made his money as one of two people who independently invented the optical mouse.

Well, he’s back with another COVID-19 vaccine conspiracy, after claiming Taylor Hawkins died from the vaccine.

This time, he is 99% certain that Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, using nothing more than VAERS and a calculator… I kid you not.

To top it off, he challenged me to yet another live debate, just like he did with his Taylor Hawkins claims.

Dear Steve, facts aren’t determined by live debates. They remain facts, irrespective of our individual opinions. I’ll just let the facts below speak for themselves…

Read more : Did Justin Bieber Blame Pfizer Vaccine For His Paralysis?!

 

Why Steve Kirsch Is 100% Wrong On Justin Bieber’s Paralysis : A Summary

First, let me quickly summarise some key facts about Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis :

  1. His facial paralysis was caused by the reactivation of a dormant viral infection, resulting in the Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS).
  2. RHS is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), which causes chickenpox. It cannot be caused by a vaccine.
  3. RHS can be definitively confirmed by testing the rash or blood for the varicella zoster virus.

And here is a quick summary of why Steve Kirsch is 100% wrong… yet again :

  1. He offered ZERO evidence that Justin Bieber was even vaccinated.
  2. He offered ZERO evidence that Justin Bieber developed RHS because of the COVID-19 vaccine.
  3. He relied solely on VAERS data to calculate Bieber’s chances of developing RHS from the vaccine.
  4. He wasn’t satisfied with the VAERS data, so he artificially inflated the number to obtain a number he preferred.

Why Steve Kirsch Is 100% Wrong On Justin Bieber’s Paralysis, Point By Point…

Now, I will go through his “points”, and show you why Steve Kirsch is 100% wrong… in detail!

Claim : I blocked his comment offering a live debate on this issue
Fact : I didn’t block Steve’s comment. Tech ARP automatically holds all comments for moderation because we get a ton of troll posts.

Claim : Bieber’s wife was also likely vaccine injured
Fact : No one knows if Hailey Bieber was even vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fact : Hailey Bieber suffered from a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) from a blood clot that passed through a hole in her heart and travelled up to her brain. Even if she was vaccinated, her “mini stroke” was not caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Claim : Lots of young people are getting strokes after COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact : Lots of young people developed stroke before COVID-19 vaccination too. My wife was one of them.
Fact : COVID-19 infection increases your risk of developing stroke, through increased inflammation and hyper coagulation of the blood.

Claim : Justin Bieber must have been vaccinated against COVID-19
Fact : Steve Kirsch conducted his own reader survey to come to the conclusion that Justin Bieber must have been vaccinated, because his concerts required people to be vaccinated.
Fact : Steve Kirsch does not have any evidence or knowledge whether Justin Bieber was vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fact : The vaccination requirement for his concert was determined by the Event Organiser and the venue, not Justin Bieber himself.
Fact : Not all venues require COVID-19 vaccination. State Farm Arena in Georgia and PPG Paints Arena in Pennsylvania, for example, do not require proof of vaccination or even a negative COVID-19 test.
Fact : Whether participants are required to be vaccinated or not, is not evidence that Justin Bieber himself was vaccinated.

Read more : Did Bruce Willis get aphasia from COVID-19 vaccine?!

Claim : VAERS only had 1 report of RHS for non-COVID vaccines in the past 32 years
Fact : VAERS reports are unverified, and cannot be used to reach any conclusions about vaccine safety.
Fact : RHS occurs “naturally” in about 5 in 100,000 people per year. That’s approximately 400,000 cases per year globally.
Fact : The fact that RHS was only reported once in the past 32 years is proof that you cannot use VAERS reports to draw any kind of conclusion.

Claim : VAERS reported 5 cases of RHS after COVID-19 vaccination for Bieber’s age group
Fact : VAERS reports are unverified, and cannot be used to reach any conclusions about vaccine safety.
Fact : 5 cases out of 222 million fully-vaccinated individuals in the United States works out to an incidence rate of 0.002 per 100,000 people – over 2200x lower than the natural incidence rate of RHS.

Claim : According to VAERS, RHS can develop months after vaccination.
Fact : VAERS reports are unverified, and cannot be used to reach any conclusions about vaccine safety.
Fact : RHS can develop whenever the person’s immune system is suppressed – by stress, infection, medication, etc.
Fact : Approximately 400,000 people develop RHS every year, before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.
Fact : There is no evidence that RHS can develop weeks or months after COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact : The case studies of two persons developing RHS after COVID-19 vaccination showed that it occurred within 2-3 days after receiving the vaccine. Not weeks or months later.
Opinion : If Justin Bieber got vaccinated against COVID-19, he most likely got all his doses last year, not this year.
Opinion : Justin Bieber kicked off his Justice World Tour on 18 February 2022. Even assuming he got vaccinated for this tour, he would have received the last dose by 4 February at the latest. It is virtually impossible for his RHS to develop more than 4 months after his vaccination.

Read more : Here’s How Antivaxxers Create Fake News Using VAERS!

Claim : Estimated incidence rate is 338 per 100,000
Fact : The true incidence rate for Bieber’s age group was just 0.002 per 100,000 people, from Steve Kirsch’s own investigation.
Fact : He inflated the number by expanding the search to include all age groups, giving him 66 cases.
Fact : He then multiplied that inflated number by a fictional Under Reporting Factor of 128 that he made out of thin air.
Fact : Steve Kirsch’s estimated incidence rate was artificially skewed by 169,000 times!

Claim : 99% chance it was COVID-19 vaccine that caused Justin Bieber’s RHS
Fact : No one knows if Justin Bieber was even vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fact : Steve Kirsch only derived his 99% chance by artificially inflating the actual incidence rate of 0.002 per 100K people to 338 per 100K people.
Fact : The VAERS-based statistic for Bieber’s age group (which isn’t accurate to begin with) shows a 99.96% chance it was not caused by the vaccine.

Claim : There are two articles proving that COVID-19 vaccine causes RHS
Fact : Those two articles did not prove that any COVID-19 vaccine caused RHS.
Fact : RHS can only be caused by the reactivation of a dormant varicella zoster viral infection.
Fact : Both articles are case reports of a single patient each, who developed RHS within 2-3 days of a COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact : Correlation does not mean causation, especially when there are only two case reports.
Fact : Even if COVID-19 vaccines can trigger RHS, the two articles show that it has to happen within 2-3 days of the vaccination, not weeks or months later.

Did Justin Bieber Blame Pfizer Vaccine For His Paralysis?!

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!

Justin Bieber now admits that he regrets taking the Covid-19 vaccine, saying that it left him with permanent paralysis in his face. Bieber made the confession to a close friend, who later leaked the information to the Daily Mail. Bieber reportedly plans on suing Pfizer for causing his paralysis, despite the fact the company is shielded from liability.

Bieber admitted that “the vaccine has ruined my life. I’m going to take these criminals to court and sue them. The CEO of Pfizer has a lot of skeletons in his closet, and now it’s payback time.”

Justin Bieber is a multi-millionaire with a massive platform. If he manages to stay alive, he may be able to blow the lid off the whole fake-pandemic-conspiracy. It has long been reported that Big Pharma and Hollywood are full of WEF and UN-aligned globalists that seek to form a one world government.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

 

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.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

We are not affiliated with the mainstream media (CBC, CTV etc.) in any way, and any similarities between our content and the work of the MSM is purely coincidental.

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 :

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 :

I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.

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!

Read more : Did Justin Bieber Get Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine?!

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.

I will be using this time to rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so that I can do what I was born to do.

I am going to get better. I’m doing all of these facial exercises to get my face back to normal and it will go back to normal.

It’s just time, we don’t know how much time it will be, but it’s going to be okay.

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”.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Did Justin Bieber Get Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine?!

Did Justin Bieber get the Ramsay Hunt Syndrome from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Justin Bieber Got Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine!

Just hours after Justin Bieber announced that he is suffering from the Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, people started claiming that it was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Here are just a few examples of the many people have posted, claiming that he’s suffering from a COVID-19 vaccine injury…

People will live by the Jab and some will die by the Jab. The consequences of getting the vaccine are starting to show. #Shingles are being disguised as #monkeypox and so is this ‘virus’ #RamsayHuntSyndrome that #JustinBieber has. The vaccines are now the killer enemy. #mRNA

So Justin Bieber got covid vaccine side effects but they callin it something else. Figures.

Justin Bieber got that disease from the Covid 19 vaccine , they are NOT safe 💯💉

His completely healthy wife gets brain blood cloth 2 months back. Now he gets this. Both commonly known vaccine side effects. Don’t deny the facts. This is 100% crystal clear case. Sad fact that @justinbieber
can’t sue because he took it by his own will.

Truth : Justin Bieber Did NOT Get Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Justin Bieber Has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

On 10 June 2022, Justin Bieber announced on his verified Instagram account that he is taking a break from performing, because he was suffering from the Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

He never once said that his facial paralysis was due to the COVID-19 vaccine. His facial paralysis was caused by a viral infection, as Justin himself explained in his video :

I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.

As you can see this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face; this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.

Also known as herpes zoster oticus, the Ramsay Hunt syndrome refers to a shingles outbreak that affects the facial nerve, and can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss.

Fact #2 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Caused His Facial Paralysis

COVID-19 vaccines have been associated with the rare side effect of temporary facial paralysis called Bell’s palsy.

Bell’s palsy may present similarly as Ramsay Hunt syndrome in the form of facial paralysis on one side of the face, but they are different conditions.

It’s like how you can break your leg in a car accident, or from falling off a ladder. It’s the same injury, but the causes are different.

This is why it is wrong to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis, when it developed from a past infection by an unrelated virus.

Fact #3 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Is Caused By Chickenpox Virus

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (Human alphaherpesvirus 3), which is the virus that causes chickenpox.

It has nothing to do with COVID-19, which is caused by a completely different virus – SARS-CoV-2, which is from a completely different virus family – Coronaviridae.

In fact, for Justin Bieber to develop Ramsay Hunt syndrome, he must have had a chickenpox infection in the past.

Even after a chickenpox infection resolves, the virus remains dormant in our nervous system. The dormant virus can reactivate later in life in about ⅓ of cases, causing shingles (herpes zoster).

Fact #4 : Chickenpox Vaccine Prevents Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Shingles and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome are caused by the dormant varicella-zoster virus (VZV). They are prevented by the chickenpox vaccine.

By vaccinating children against chickenpox, you are also protecting them from shingles and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in the future.

Fact #5 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Was Not Caused By Vaccination

Anti-vaccination activists are pointing to a BMJ report from Hong Kong called “Ramsay Hunt syndrome following COVID-19 vaccination” as “evidence” that Bieber’s condition was caused by his COVID-19 vaccination.

There are a few problems with that claim :

  • No one knows if Justin Bieber was even vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • He was assumed to be vaccinated, because his concerts in February 2022 required people to be vaccinated.
  • The Hong Kong report detailed a single case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome in someone who was vaccinated. It was not a study that confirmed that COVID-19 vaccines cause the Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
  • The man in the report developed Ramsay Hunt syndrome two days after getting vaccinated.
  • If Justin Bieber was vaccinated, he would have been vaccinated last year, not recently.
  • Ramsay Hunt syndrome cannot occur without a prior chickenpox infection.
  • The Hong Kong authors postulated that after being vaccinated, the immune system’s ability to suppress the varicella zoster virus may have been temporarily dampened by the switch to producing immune cells that target the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

So let me state this clearly – Ramsay Hunt Syndrome cannot be caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, because it’s caused by a past infection of an unrelated virus. See Fact #3.

Even if that stressful event was the vaccination (which include fear of the vaccine), it cannot possibly occur in anyone who was not first infected by the varicella zoster virus.

Fact #6 : Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Can Be Triggered By Stress / Infection

Like shingles, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) can be triggered by stress. Could the stress of preparing to perform have triggered Justin Bieber’s condition?

Why not? After all, RHS  naturally occurs in about 5 in 100,000 people per year. That’s approximately 400,000 cases per year globally.

RHS could have also been triggered by any infection, or medication that may suppress the immune system. Even a COVID-19 infection can potentially trigger RHS, but note that I’m not saying he got COVID-19. We also don’t know if he was on any medication.

Unless Justin happened to receive another booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine days before he developed RHS, it would be wrong to blame his condition on the vaccine.

Fact #6 : Hailey Bieber’s Mini Stroke Was Caused By Hole In Heart

Justin Bieber’s wife, Hailey Bieber, had a mini stroke (technically a transient ischaemic attack or TIA) in March 2022.

The TIA was found to be caused by a blood clot which passed through a large hole in her heart, called patent foramen ovale (PFO), and travelled to her brain.

A transcranial doppler ultrasound showed that she had a grade 5 PFO – the highest grade of right-left shunt in PFO, allowing a large clot to pass to the brain. She underwent a procedure to close the PFO.

Neither her mini stroke nor the hole in the heart were caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.
