Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Case #
5898

Facebook censors article posted by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: Facebook imposed a fact-check label on a post that now-Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. made Jan. 11 about potential side-effects of Tylenol in pregnancy. Kennedy posted, "Hundreds of 'Tylenol lawsuits' already have been filed against retailers and manufacturers of acetaminophen — but that number could soon reach into the thousands, according to an attorney who spoke to The Defender." He included a link to an article about the issue on his web site, Children's Health Defense. Facebook’s label says, “Missing context. Independent fact-checkers say this information could mislead people.” The label links to a Health Feedback fact-check titled, “What do we know about the possible link between acetaminophen use during pregnancy and autism?”
