Additional Details Emerge About Diamond’s Specific Cause of Death


I’m sure you know that Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway of the popular duo “Diamond and Silk” passed away earlier this month, leaving many devastated.

The cause of death has now been revealed by the Associated Press to be…heart disease.

The death of Diamond, whose real name was Lynette Hardaway, had been a topic of widespread speculation, with many social media users falsely claiming that COVID-19 was to blame. However, the family had not released any information on the cause of death, until now.

The Associated Press reported that the family has confirmed that Diamond died from heart disease and the misinformation about the cause of death has been proven false.

The passing of Diamond, who was widely known for her conservative commentary and support of President Trump, has been met with an outpouring of condolences and tributes from her fans and fellow conservatives on social media.

From the AP:

Lynette Hardaway, a zealous supporter of former President Donald Trump whose death had prompted widespread speculation over its cause, died earlier this month of a heart condition, according to a death certificate obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

Known by the moniker “Diamond” of the conservative political commentary duo Diamond and Silk, Hardaway, 51, died Jan. 8 of heart disease due to chronic high blood pressure.

Hardaway and her sister, Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, found internet stardom as Black women who ardently backed Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign. After making several campaign appearances with the former president, the two leveraged their notoriety to land regular commentator roles at Fox News. Their promotion of coronavirus falsities eventually got them dropped, but they landed at the far-right cable and digital media platform Newsmax.

The cause of Hardaway’s death, which was not released by the family, had become a topic of widespread speculation. A torrent of social media users suggested COVID-19 was to blame.

Many of the posts were based on an unsourced, and since-deleted, online report from November that claimed Hardaway had been hospitalized with COVID-19. Both Diamond and Silk vehemently denied that the virus had put Hardaway in the hospital.

COVID-19 was not listed as a cause or contributing factor on her death certificate, which was provided to the AP by the Hoke County Register of Deeds and was signed by a local doctor. No autopsy was performed.

A memorial ceremony held in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and streamed online Saturday renewed speculation when Richardson suggested her sister’s death was somehow linked to the COVID-19 vaccine. She insinuated Hardaway may have been “poisoned” by another person who had been vaccinated, amplifying the false notion that recipients can affect those around them.

At the memorial, Richardson mentioned people “dying suddenly,” a reference that has become shorthand among some anti-vaccine activists for deaths they say were caused by COVID-19 shots, despite studies showing the vaccines are safe and effective.

Here’s more from the Funeral…

Diamond’s funeral was held recently and it gave us a much greater insight into how she died and what all happened.

It’s a tragic story and very emotional.

President Trump was also there at the funeral and delivered a moving eulogy.

Oh, and he paid for everything.

Class act.

I have all the clips for you, let’s cover them one by one.

We start of with Mike Lindell giving some wonderful remarks and a prayer:

The biggest topic seems to be HOW did Diamond die…

Was it COVID?

Was she vaxxed?

This seems to answer things, here is Silk seemingly suggesting she died from the poison vaxx shedding:

And now we have President Trump:

Trump’s conclusion:

Here is a longer montage of about 4 minutes:

And you gotta love this from Diamond’s brother:

Yes sir, yes indeed!

Here’s more from Breitbart:

Known as “Diamond” from the social media duo “Diamond & Silk,” Hardaway passed away unexpectedly earlier this month at the age of 51. At the time of her death, the former president praised her as a “magnificent” woman. He said on his Truth Social account:

Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, ALL Americans. Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina. Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing. There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out. Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!

The former president repeated those words of praise while attending her funeral on Saturday.

“This is a fantastic woman that we lost. We haven’t really lost her because she’s looking down. And she loved her sister and she loved her family. I talked to her about it and she was a great passionate woman with a great, big, beautiful brain,” he began.

The former president recalled some of the top moments of his presidential campaign and how Diamond & Silk supported him in the earliest days and never jumped ship.

“I turned over the podium, and Diamond loudly and proudly declared, ‘I want everybody to know that we stand behind Donald J. Trump.’ This was so early. It was an incredible thing,” he said, adding later:

On June 16 of 2015, Diamond & Silk were at home watching a certain network which I won’t name. I announced my campaign for president and they were lifelong Democrats, but they ultimately, very quickly, later said, ‘He’s right.’ Because we were talking common sense. We were talking about health. We were talking about walls.

The president concluded his speech by saying that people will miss Diamond “greatly.”

“We will miss her greatly, we will remember her always, and together we will carry on a mission that has been an amazing mission,” he said.
