L.A. Doctor Fired for Being Part of Hydroxychloroquine-Supporting America’s Frontline Doctors Group

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.
