(RT) The World Economic Forum (WEF) has taken down its tweet that claimed lockdowns have been “quietly improving cities,” and admitted that is not the case. But the backdown didn’t spare the globalist titan from a new wave of mockery.
The WEF’s controversial message turned out to be quite short-lived, surviving less than a day on its feed under a barrage of outraged comments.
We’re deleting this tweet. Lockdowns aren’t “quietly improving cities” around the world. But they are an important part of the public health response to COVID-19. pic.twitter.com/D2Pyb9x4yy— World Economic Forum (@wef) February 27, 2021
The tweet was accompanied by a video, showing deserted streets and silent factories, that noted a record drop in carbon emissions. It also linked to an article claiming that silent cities contributed to better detection of minor earthquakes.
On Saturday, the organization deleted the tweet, accepting that coronavirus-induced lockdowns were not actually “quietly improving cities.”
Still, it insisted that the restrictions have been “an important part of the public health response to Covid-19.”
…The whole gaffe left a huge dent in the reputation of the globalist group, many users argued, and its damage control efforts were not making the situation any better.
Yes, @wef, but the damage is done now. Very many of us have seen, very clearly, just how twisted, controlling and downright evil your intentions are, and will resist them any way we can. We may be unable to stop you, but we can be a massive bloody nuisance every step of the way.— Erictheowl (@Erictheowl1) February 27, 2021
