Robert F. Kennedy Jr., notorious anti-vaxxer and 2024 presidential hopeful, says he wasn’t the one who posted a message on the TikTok web page of a health influencer who was admiring her glutes after a exercise. Certain, RFK Jr., we imagine you as a lot as you imagine Massive Pharma.
The reply occurred in Sept. 2022 on Tyler Idol’s account, which she now has pinned to her web page, and was unearthed by some right-wing dork on X Wednesday. The reply is now deleted, however in accordance with saved recordings, it merely said “Wow” and was accompanied by two smiling faces with hearts emoji. As for how one can inform it was from RFK Jr.’s TikTok account, it’s fairly apparent because the avatar is of the anti-vaxxer, and clicking on it took you to the official TikTok web page for his marketing campaign.
Surprisingly, RFK Jr. didn’t level the finger at any of his pet scapegoats. As a substitute, in a tweet on Thursday, he shifted the blame to a member of his marketing campaign.
“Do folks actually assume I used to be TikToking in 2022,” his post says. “This remark now seems on my account as a result of the account was beforehand owned by one of many marketing campaign’s younger social media managers.”
It does seem that he has some extent as the primary video on his TikTok account was uploaded in Could 2023, which was a month after he officially declared he was running for office. That was again when he was calling himself a Democrat, solely to pivot to running as an independent candidate final October, after which to contemplate going for the libertarian ticket earlier this week. Thoughts you, former President Donald Trump’s camp did attain out in some unspecified time in the future to discuss the anti-vaxxer as a VP pick. With such variable political leanings, perhaps he ought to simply run on the TikTok ticket.
The incident remembers the time former presidential candidate Texas Senator Ted Cruz was caught being just a little attractive on predominant. Again in 2017, the gentleman from the Lone Star State’s Twitter account was found liking a tweet featuring hardcore porn. His employees had been fast to clarify that the gaffe was carried out by another person not related to Cruz, however that didn’t cease Pornhub from promoting said porno as being endorsed by the Senator.
