Vimeo Removes Artist’s Fictional Vaccine Cartoon, Labeling It ‘Dangerous’ Health-Related Content

Vimeo, a major video-sharing services platform, censored the first episode of a cartoonist’s fictional series titled “UNJABBED” for what they claim is “dangerous” health-related content, even though the video includes no overt reference to COVID-19. Ken Avidor, an artist based in Indianapolis, Indiana, makes films with sketches. He is also the author of “Bicyclopolis,” a comic book released in 2018. Given he pays for a subscription service on Vimeo and has released other work on his profile, it caught him off guard when he had his latest work removed.
