An L.A. Doctor was fired this week because she was part of the group of physicians that were illicitly banned by social media last week.
Dr. Simone Gold, a Los Angeles doctor and founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, says that she was fired after appearing in the viral video advocating for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.
Gold appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight and said that the “White Coat Summit” held in Washington to tout the use of the drug got her fired.
“I’m a board-certified emergency physician for 20 years, and in fact, it seems like until five minutes ago I was considered a hero and people would be clapping and glad that I was doing what I was doing, and then the video came out and I was summarily fired for appearing in what was told to me is an embarrassing video,” Gold told Carlson.
The video Gold and her fellow doctors were in racked up more than a million views before social media giants Youtube, Facebook, Google, and Twitter banned the video.
Tucker said that he could understand why the video was deleted. Tucker insisted that if American saw the video it “would hurt the Joe Biden for President campaign and so they pulled it off the internet and banned anyone from sharing it.”
But Gold noted that the video she was in had nothing to do with her actual job as a doctor.
“I’m very well-liked liked, well-regarded. Thankfully I have a wonderful reputation with the patients, with my staff and with colleagues, and I actually enjoy what I do,” she said.
“We came to Washington because we are so distressed,” Gold continued. “Frontline doctors like myself, we’re seeing patients not get what they need, we’re seeing doctor-patient relationships being completely eroded and governors are empowering pharmacies to overrule doctors who’ve had conversations with their patients. It’s really something that Americans should all be alarmed about.”
Her group’s website was also wiped by the liberal mob.
WOW: Our website host @Squarespace has just completely and arbitrarily shut down our website, claiming a violation of their terms of service.
We are a group of physicians advocating for a better understanding of COVID-19 and its available treatment options.

Gold added that all her group wanted was for America to have all the facts before coming to any conclusions about hydroxychloroquine.
“I don’t want anyone just to believe me because I’m saying it,” Gold told Carlson. “We have put together a white paper that has all the science — it’s utterly irrefutable that hydroxychloroquine is safe.”
After all, the drug has been around for 65 years, she said.
Gold also noted that she has hired high-powered attorney Lin Wood to represent her in her firing case.
