Diamond & Silk are officially axed from Fox News.
Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson are two well-known conservative media personalities. In the past, they’ve made guest appearances on Fox News and have even participated in rallies. They support President Donald Trump and have even gone to the White House on multiple occasions. However, Fox News decided that their controversial views on coronavirus were not acceptable and cut ties with them.
The Daily Beast reported that Diamond & Silk were removed due to their repetitive actions in promoting conspiracy theories revolving around the Coronavirus pandemic. One conspiracy that got highlighted was their claim that nobody knows where the bodies of over 56,000 Americans who died of the Coronavirus are. They believe that these bodies were designed in the lab. They also accused the World Health Organization of having the ability to “turn the virus on and off.”
In their March 30 live stream, Diamond said: “What I need to know is how many people have passed away in New York, and what I need to know is: Who has the bodies?” She continued, “I need for somebody that does investigative work to call the morgues. To call the funeral homes. We need to know because I don’t trust anything else that comes out of his mouth now. Something’s not right here. Something is off here.”
From there, she transitioned, “Is this being deliberately spread?” Diamond claims she is not a conspiracy theorist and is asking her questions. Gizmodo reports that Silk ponders as to whether or not the virus is “manmade” or even “engineered.” She, on the other hand, believes the WHO conspiracy of the existence of a kill “switch” for the virus.
If that’s not enough, the two also spoke of what can only be said to be insane. Diamond & Silk’s ideas include the coronavirus death counts being inflated and that Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ potential vaccine is a part of his plan to control the population. Another wild idea is that 5G caused the Coronavirus to fill up “empty” hospital beds, a wild pharma and tech crossover.
Weeks before, Twitter had to remove their tweet where the duo urged their followers to disobey social distancing orders. Their argument? They believe that the only way to become immune is for people to go out and expose themselves. They also claim that staying inside for extended periods will only make people sick.
Since April 7, Diamond & Silk’s Fox Nation program has been silent. A source from the network itself said that you wouldn’t see the duo for quite some time.
In the article by Gizmodo, the president was said to believe that Fox News is becoming soft. In response to that, he has directed his Twitter followers to watch One America News Network. However, even this channel comes up with crazy ideas. This includes their claim that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease Dr. Anthony Fauci grew the virus in a North Carolina lab.
