Conspiracy Theorist Billy Te Kahika has stumbled upon an unfortunate woe after harassing and bullying Dr Siouxsie Wiles at the Bolton Hotel artisan restaurant in Wellington City while live streaming to his Facebook page.

Wiles is a British microbiologist and science communicator based in New Zealand. She specialises in infectious diseases and bioluminescence, gaining popularity on mainstream outlets amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Before Wednesday, there were cancellations from three different venues due to intentions of spreading misinformation about the virus and degrading Prime Minister Jacinda Arderns' political handling of lockdowns to keep the country safe.

Conspiracy Theorist Vinny Eastwood and Mr Kahika were sitting at a table next to Wiles.

They were preparing to attend a bogus protest against the government for its response to the Pandemic — intentionally calling the response a socialist plan which they believe is to remove rights and freedoms to New Zealanders while she was there.

It was thought instead of having a chat with the microbiologist about their concerns, they both start up a live stream on their mobile devices to verbally intimidate her in a disgusting act of showing no respect or compassion for the work she does.

“What we are doing today is that we are protesting at the absurd narrative of the government surrounding Covid-19,” Mr Kahika said.

“Their socialist plan is at the hands of Bill Gates to destroy New Zealand's economy, rights and freedoms and the opportunity to really let our PM know that she is overreaching.”

“This government is a socialist one turning the country into a communist state.”

He further mentions that the ‘narrative' is not right compared to his agenda of undermining public health and grifting vulnerable people who are being sucked into his make-belief He Whakaputanga takeover.

A removed Facebook post shows a photo taken of her peacefully eating brunch at a table by herself without permission from the deranged trio.

“Guess who Vinny and I are sitting next to?” adding, “I'm sitting on my lips and hands. Do I really believe everyone should live in peace undisturbed, or should I let her know what we think?”

“Souxie, you are one strange looking fish. Today is the chance to let them know what we think.”

Mr Eastwood announced to his personal profile Facebook temporarily restricted the page for not following Community Standards. The post made about Wiles broke the platform's Bullying and Harassment policy.

“Bullying and harassment happens in many places and come in many different forms from making threats and releasing personally identifiable information to sending threatening messages and making unwanted malicious contact,” the policy states. “We do not tolerate this kind of behaviour because it prevents people from feeling safe and respected on Facebook.”

“For public figures, we remove attacks that are severe as well as certain attacks where the public figure is directly tagged in the post or comment.”

The Bullying Prevention Hub has more information about what Facebook is doing to protect people from bullying and harassment.

Mr Kahika has been restricted and banned a number of times from the platform.

The two have run away with $200,000 of an investors' money meant for a Northland housing development.

It was used for the 2020 General Elections, and the Electoral Commission is actively investigating. However, the announcement of doing so has been hidden from the public eye.

A 2020 Land Rover Discovery at a value of $160,000 was also purchased with the money.
