Woolery Spox: He Left Twitter Over “Media Abuse”

CNN reports:

Former game show host Chuck Woolery’s son has Covid-19, a spokesperson for Woolery said Thursday. “Chuck’s son is fine and asymptomatic,” Mark Young, with Jekyll and Hyde Advertising, told CNN. Woolery made news late Sunday when President Donald Trump retweeted Woolery saying everyone is lying about Covid-19.

Speaking on “Blunt Force Truth,” the right-wing political podcast he cohosts, Woolery said he “never said Covid was a hoax, but it was the only way” his critics “could really twist and use it against me.” Woolery wanted a break from social media, so he deactivated his Twitter account, Young said.

Woolery’s account “is not gone. He is just taking a break from the abuse he has received from thousands of intolerant people who purposefully mislead people on his statement, including the media,” Young said.
