Fox News anchor John Roberts has deleted a tweet suggesting that former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s death “raises new concerns” about the efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines.

In the now-deleted tweet, Roberts said “the fact that Colin Powell died from a breakthrough COVID infection raises new concerns about how effective vaccines are long-term.” 

Roberts deleted the tweet amid backlash and later issued follow-ups claiming that he’d deleted it because “many people interpreted it as anti-vax.”
