Tamera Mowry-Housley’s Husband Faces Backlash For Tweeting ‘Fake News’ About AIDS & Coronavirus In South Africa
While Tamera Mowry-Housley’s husband Adam Housley left Fox News in 2018, after working with the network for 17 years, he’s still reporting news on his personal Twitter account. He’s been giving consistent updates on the coronavirus pandemic, but one of his tweets this week has people calling him out for spreading fake news.
“Tonight I have learned that 1 million body bags have been delivered to South Africa. It’s estimated that nearly 8.5 million people have AIDS or TB in the country and they are very worried about whats coming with the coronavirus.”
“I have great contacts there who say they are likely going to be asking for 1-2 million more body bags. ‘Adam we just don’t have the infrastructure like America to help people here. The socialized health system serves most people, but it’s corrupt, underfunded and understaffed.'”
He later explained why he deleted his tweets.
“I have deleted my South African tweet. It is being completely misunderstood. If you’ve followed me for years you know South Africa was one of my favorite places I’ve ever been. I met Tutu and some amazing people. I have been counting the days to take my kids back.”
His tweet about South Africa that dates back to 2018 was also mentioned.
While he deleted his recent tweets, many Twitter users blasted him for his report, some calling him out for spreading “fake news.”
Adam allow me to educate you! SA has acted swiftly to combat this virus & protect its people. Go focus your Twitter fingers on USA where 1000’s are dying daily from Corona, Flint Michigan’s dirty water, police brutality on Black Americans & immigrants families being destroyed. pic.twitter.com/nIKKKn7OmV
