During the tumultuous summer of 2020, amidst the global upheaval caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Canadian doctor Kulvinder Kaur Gill, of Indian descent, raised her voice against government-enforced lockdowns and vaccine mandates. However, her outspokenness led to legal repercussions, with medical organizations filing lawsuits and previous management at X/Twitter censoring her.

Dr. Gill, a specialist in immunology and pediatrics based in Canada, found herself entangled in a legal dispute due to her COVID-related tweets. Faced with a daunting CAD 300,000 (approximately Rs 1,83,75,078) in legal fees, she found support from X, which vowed to cover her financial burdens.

According to X’s statement, Dr. Gill faced harassment from mainstream media and censorship from Twitter’s prior management for her public opposition to COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates. This resulted in investigations and disciplinary actions by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, leaving “cautions” on her professional record.

“Upon learning about her crowdfunding campaign to settle the judgment, Elon Musk pledged his support earlier this week. X will now fully fund Dr. Gill’s campaign to cover her $300,000 judgment and legal expenses,” the statement declared.

Dr. Gill’s legal battles depleted her life savings, leaving her burdened with substantial debt.

Known for her staunch criticism of vaccinations, Dr. Gill expressed her views on X in August 2020, stating, “If you have not yet figured out that we don’t need a vaccine, you are not paying attention. #FactsNotFear.”

Her assertions drew widespread condemnation from the medical community and mainstream media alike. Dr. Gill retaliated by suing 23 individuals, including doctors, journalists, and news outlets, accusing them of participating in a defamation campaign against her.

However, the lawsuit was dismissed by a judge citing anti-SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) legislation, asserting that Dr. Gill’s aim was to suppress her critics’ freedom of speech on a public platform. Consequently, she was ordered to cover the defendants’ legal costs.
