Twitter Suspends Bill Clinton Rape Accuser Juanita Broaddrick's Account

Juanita Broaddrick, who accused former president Bill Clinton of rape, has been suspended from Twitter after claiming COVID-19 vaccines can "alter DNA."

Broaddrick's account was locked for violating the social platform's policy on "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information" related to COVID, Twitter told Fox News.

Twitter said it had emailed Broaddrick about one particular tweet in which she falsely suggested that the coronavirus vaccine can "alter DNA."

"When will this vaccine crap be over? Big Pharma has profited enough for the next hundred years. Stop pushing vaccines that don't work and alter DNA," she posted on Saturday.

Twitter said it told Broaddrick her account can be restored if the tweet is deleted.

"We understand that during times of crisis and instability, it is difficult to know what to do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe," the company said.

"Under this policy, we require the removal of content that may pose a risk to people's health, including content that goes directly against guidance from authoritative sources of global and local public health information."

After sharing a screenshot of Broaddrick's suspended page, Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who had her personal Twitter account permanently banned for "repeated violations" of its COVID-19 misinformation policy, called Twitter "stupid."

"The biggest killer of freedom of speech," she tweeted via her unsuspended congressional account.

"No wonder hardly anyone raises their hand at my town halls when I ask how many people have a Twitter account. People who think this platform is important need to get a life. What a waste."

Broaddrick accused Clinton of raping her in a hotel room in 1978 when he was the attorney general of Arkansas.

The allegations were denied by the former president after they became public in 1999.
Clinton's attorney, David Kendall said in a statement in February on behalf of the then-president of that year: "Any allegation that the president assaulted Mrs. Broaddrick more than 20 years ago is absolutely false. Beyond that, we're not going to comment."

Clinton later told reporters that he had "nothing to add" in response to the allegations beyond the denial issued by Kendall.

Broaddrick, a former nursing home operator, was also a volunteer in Clinton's first gubernatorial campaign in Arkansas in 1978.

Twitter has been contacted for comment.
