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!

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.

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

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.

Who Erected This NSFW Slide At A Children’s Playground?!

Who erected a NSFW slide at a children’s playground in Vancouver, Canada?

Take a look at that cheeky slide, and find out what’s really going on!

 

Who Erected This NSFW Slide At A Children’s Playground?!

The Internet is abuzz with a picture of a NSFW slide apparently being installed at a children’s playground in Vancouver, Canada!

People are either outraged or amused because the red slide, which resembles a penis entering a vagina, was erected in a children’s playground!

Can’t quite put my finger on it but there is something strange about this new slide at a local park 

I have questions for the designer 

If this is a public park, questions as well as the public officials who approved the design.

Does the kid get a cigarette afterwards? asking for a friend

Ok, this WOKE stuff is go too far. There is a Supervisor in this town that needs to be fired, right now. That design was approved by upper management.

What perv authorized this?

..what is wrong with you people…if this is legit get a parents committee together and have it removed

 

Apparently, NSFW Slide Is A Seth Rogen Movie Prop!

After a quick bit of sleuthing, we found out that this NSFW slide is apparently a prop for an R-rated comedy that’s being filmed in Vancouver!

Here is what we know so far….

Fact #1 : It Was Erected In Maple Ridge, British Columbia

The red slide was erected in a children’s playground in Fletcher Park, Maple Ridge, which is just outside of Vancouver.

Fact #2 : It Was A Prop For The Movie, JFC

The slide is apparently a prop for an unnamed R-rated comedy movie called JFC, which is short for Joy F*ck Club.

Fact #3 : It Is A Real Slide

Some Internet sleuths “claim” that the photo was edited, so it has to be said – this slide is REAL. It was NOT Photoshopped.

Fact #4 : It Has Already Been Removed

This prop was (obviously) erected temporarily for filming and would be removed by the 5 November 2021, which is when the British Columbia shooting is scheduled to end.

However, it appears that someone (tremby) went to check it out, and found it gone. So it was likely placed over the original metal slide for the day of the shooting and then removed.

Fact #5 : JFC Is A Seth Rogen Produced Movie

JFC is about four Asian-American women who are travelling across Asia in search of their birth mothers, and features Ashley Park, Sherry Cola, Stephanie Hsu and Sabrina Wu in those roles.

The movie is being produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and directed by Adele Lim (who co-wrote Crazy Rich Asians) in her directorial debut.

We’re fully leaning into a side of Asian-ness the world doesn’t usually get to see… the messy, R-rated, thirsty AF side. – Adele Lim
