Alex Jones accused of selling fake coronavirus cures
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is the latest purveyor of silver-laced potions ordered to stop peddling fake cures for the coronavirus.
Jones claimed on his radio show last week that his Silverblue toothpaste “kills the whole SARS-corona family at point-blank range,” according to a news release on Thursday by New York Attorney General Letitia James. She ordered Jones to immediately refrain from selling the toothpaste and other products as cures on his website, InfoWars.
“As the coronavirus continues to pose serious risks to public health, Alex Jones has spewed outright lies and has profited off of New Yorkers’ anxieties,” James, a Democrat, said in a statement. “Mr. Jones’s public platform has not only given him a microphone to shout inflammatory rhetoric, but his latest mistruths are incredibly dangerous.”
