A Facebook conference call leaked from Project Veritas showed CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared to be violating the current rules of his own platform, saying he did not understand the long-term effects of “modifying peoples DNA and RNA”, referring to the COVID-19 vaccine .
Facebook said last week that it would expand its efforts to remove false claims about the COVID-19 vaccine. Facebook’s official policy further states that it will specifically remove any content that “claims that the COVID-19 vaccine alters people’s DNA”.

James O’Keefe, of Project Veritas, says the leaked footage from July 2020 shows Zuckerberg expressing opinions that violate his own policy today.
In the leaked footage, Zuckerberg was heard saying, “Some warn about this because we’re not doing the long-term side effects of essentially modifying people’s DNA and RNA.”
O’Keefe gives a subsequent interview with Zuckerberg and Dr. Anthony Fauci in November 2020, in which Zuckerberg is heard voicing an opposite view of the idea that a vaccine could alter a person’s DNA.
“Just to make one point clear, what I understand is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or your RNA. So this is just an important point to make,” Zuckerberg says in the interview.
