The Nation of Islam's official Twitter account was banned on Monday, apparently for criticizing Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.
NOI's Brother Abdul Qiyam Muhammad tweeted: "Unsurprisingly, Twitter,Inc. has suspended The Nation of Islam’s official account: @OfficialNOI."

NOI's Rizza Islam was targeted by the White House as one of 12 social media accounts behind 65% of the vaccine misinformation online.
Black Twitter reacted to NOI's ban on Tuesday.
One Twitter user wrote: "They used the vaccines to get to the NOI. NOI breaks no rules so they needed another way to ban them. Labeling disagreeing with the vaccines as dangerous was the perfect cover. This ain’t about those damn vaccines. White ppl don’t want them either. It was about getting the NOI."
Another user tweeted: "4 years of Donald Trump and there was no censorship. 6 months of Biden and look at this! So much for the lesser two evils."
And a third wrote: "But #WhiteSupremacists are untouched."
LMBO, Satan's Always Busy... ?????Hmmmm, ??Was It Because The N.O.I. Talking Bout The Mother Wheel ??OR Was It About The Truth Of The CovID Vaccination... ????????? Satan Plans and Allah Plans; But Allah IS The Best of Planners.

There was no Twitter, Facebook or Youtube when Minister Farrakhan called for the Million Man March.
We don't need any of them.
