Assessment: During Hellmann’s time on the Pfizer board, Facebook has pushed campaigns to censor posts that question the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines …

Dr. Susan Desmond-Hellmann, who currently serves on Pfizer Inc.’s board of directors, was previously the Lead Independent Director at Facebook, which has frequently censored user content related to the coronavirus outbreak and vaccines. She was also CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation from 2014-2020.

Hellmann joined the tech giant’s board in March 2013 and held the position of Lead Independent Director from June 2015 until October 30th, 2019, not long before the first reported case of COVID-19.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder and CEO, said, “Sue has been a wonderful and thoughtful voice on the board for six years, and I’m personally grateful to her for everything she has done for this company,” with regard to her departure from the company.

“I remain positive about Facebook and the mission to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Facebook’s Shareholders require a Board of Directors that is fully engaged and committed to address the critical issues confronting Facebook at this time,” Hellmann said of her tenure at Facebook.

“Unfortunately, increasing demands from my CEO role, my extended family, and my own health make it no longer possible for me to commit the necessary time and energy required to properly serve Facebook and its shareholders,” she added in a public statement.

During Hellmann’s time on the Pfizer board, Facebook has pushed campaigns to censor posts that question the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines. Leaked internal documents from the social-media company reveal algorithms aimed at “drastically reduc[ing] user exposure to vaccine hesitancy (VH) in comments.”
