Anti-vaxxer Shiva Ayyadurai, who last week sued anti-vaxxer Robert Kennedy for $95 million over allegedly libelous lies Kennedy posted about him - including one disparaging Ayyadurai's claims to have invented e-mail as a 14-year-old - is now suing anti-vaxxer Erin Elizabeth Finn for $115 million for allegedly re-posting Kennedy's alleged lies and then making up some more of her own.
Ayyadurai's complaint, filed this week in US District Court in Boston, says Finn, like Kennedy, should be legally slapped for, among other things, claiming Ayyadurai is in the pocket of Big Vaccine, when everybody knows that's where Kennedy is. Ayyadurai also targets Finn's own remarks, such as that she will be praying for Ayyadurai because anybody who "has this much hatred inside needs some prayers." She also called on her followers to stop following Ayyadurai.
Ayyadurai's complaint continues:
Since Finn’s statements were published on April 28, 2020, Dr. Ayyadurai has lost thousands of followers on social media, been subjected to virulent attacks by Ms. Finn and Mr. Kennedy’s supporters, and suffered loss of business, donations for his campaign, and political support.
Ayyadurai's complaint says that should he rightfully win judgment against Finn, he would use the money only for good - to set up "ten integrative health and wellness centers in economically-depressed neighborhoods" in Massachusetts, in which he would show residents why they should reject doctors and their vaccines and instead boost their immune systems through his own "natural medicine," which he said he has been developing since he was 5 and watched his grandmother use a combination of yoga, herbs, minerals, oils, massage, something akin to acupuncture and prayer to ward off illness.
In his complaint, Ayyadurai said he has made his anti-vaxxism the centerpiece of his campaign to win the Republican nomination for the US Senate seat now held by Sen. Edward Markey, although his complaint only mentioned Joseph Kennedy III - Robert Kennedy's nephew - who is also running against Markey, but as a Democrat.
