Anti-vaccine activist Sue Grey, a lawyer who's failed on many accounts to contest the government's Covid-19 vaccine rollout and stop it, was banned from Facebook for a month following her spreading misinformation about vaccines and the pandemic.
The New Zealand Outdoors Party posted a statement on Facebook that co-leader Grey was banned from the platform.
“Sue Grey has been banned from [Facebook] for 30 days! Sue asks that you join her on our platform,” the statement said.

She'd posted to far-right social media platform LetsBFree which allegedly has links to the Outdoors Party on January 28, detailing her removal and peddling others join it.
“Facebook has just banned me for 30 days. Please can you let others know to come and join us here, where we are free to share opinions without censorship,” Grey said.
The reason for removal is not immediately known, as Facebook did not respond to a request for comment.
Grey has posted misinformation on many accounts and created vaccine hesitancy to suit her own biased views and failed grifting agenda.

Last year, she was banned from the platform for seven days in November, and for three days in September. This is understood to be her third removal thus far, but she may have had other restrictions or limitations on her account that have been unannounced.
Sam Hudson, thisquality editor and journalist, contacted her for a comment about the November removal — she refused to give a comment.
Facebook ensures everyone using their platform adheres to its Community Standards, on topics such as Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy or criticism that seeks to spread health information that is not true about the pandemic.
One strike places a warning on an account for violating the Standards, while two strikes restrict an account from creating content, posting or commenting, live streaming and creating a page. Three strikes place the account under a three day restriction, four strikes is a seven day restriction, and five or more is a thirty day restriction.
Grey was contacted to provide comment about her removal, but did not answer her phone before the deadline of this publication.
