A consulting company sent out offers to influential people in France … to become a troll. “We have been asked to discredit the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine,” they complain.
Some sites, like individuals, claim that they were offered a certain amount for the negative regarding the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine. The head of the country’s Ministry of Health called such actions “irresponsible.” On BFM TV, Olivier Veran said:
“I don’t know where they are from, I don’t know, from France or from abroad. It is regrettable, it is dangerous, it is irresponsible. “
However, he believes that the main goal of such proposals – to prevent the vaccination of citizens – will not be achieved. Meanwhile, influential people on social networks, mainly scientists and doctors, with more than 1.5 million subscribers, say that the appeals came from an unknown company that wished to remain anonymous.
It is believed to be located in the United Kingdom. The emails offered hefty rewards for collaborating with a client with a “colossal budget.” In the field of activity – the discrediting of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine, reports APE-MPE. Popular scientist Λεό Γκρασέ, with 1.17 million subscribers to his YouTube channel DirtyBiology, says:
“This is strange. They made me an offer of cooperation, which is to discredit the Pfizer vaccine through a video. It’s incredible. The address of the London company that contacted me is fictitious. They never had an office there, this is a laser beauty salon! All employees have suspicious LinkedIn profiles that went missing this morning. All of them used to work in Russia ”.
In the same scenario, events developed with the famous comedian Sami Uladito (400 thousand subscribers), and with the Et ça se dit Médecin community (84 thousand subscribers). Olivier Veran was asked how plausible he considered the version that calls for such activities come from Russia. To which the head of the Ministry of Health replied that he did not know this and did not want to make any assumptions.
Pfizer / BioNTech is trusted and in demand in France, especially given the challenges faced by AstraZeneca. It remains unclear whether anyone accepted the offer of the mysterious firm, and if so, how many such people and sites. Pfizer has not yet responded to a request for comment.
