Ineitha Lynnette Hardaway, the “Diamond” of the conservative commentary duo Diamond and Silk, reportedly passed away at her home in North Carolina Monday, according to a message posted to the pair's official Twitter account.
And it took all of a few minutes after news of Hardaway’s death before leftist pundits and talking heads began mocking her death as another “antivaxxer” who died of COVID – despite the fact that no cause of death has yet been released.

Diamond —of the right-wing, Trump- loving duo Diamond and Silk— has died. In late November, she was hospitalized due to COVID-19. The duo was fired by Fox News a couple years ago for spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines. You cannot script this stuff.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) January 10, 2023
The same Diamond who said COVID was a hoax and pushed vaccine conspiracy theories died of COVID today? https://t.co/tsX7sUWKPJ— Dylan Park-Pettiford (@dyllyp) January 10, 2023

Lynette Hardaway, aka ‘Diamond’ from the MAGA Trump supporting duo Diamond and Silk, died from contracting what she called ‘a hoax’ better known as COVID-19.— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) January 10, 2023

Diamond and Silk were fired from Fox News for pushing COVID conspiracies and tonight, Diamond died from COVID.— Chris D. Jackson (@ChrisDJackson) January 10, 2023
It just writes itself, doesn't it? https://t.co/9hKH3ajTXz
Remember, FOX officially fired Diamond & Silk in 2020 for promoting disinformation about Covid-19.— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) January 10, 2023
Because Diamond and Silk are held to a higher standard than, y'know, whoever was president back then.
When a person tries not to die from covid, it's sad.— Jay Lee 🌊❤🐕🐕❤⚽️ 🇺🇦 (@Jay_Lee_C) January 10, 2023
Diamond tried to get people killed with covid.
This is karma with a bow and arrow.

Leftists are now predictably using Hardaway’s death to push for the same vaccine that evidence has shown can cause potentially deadly heart problems in some otherwise healthy people – people who, ironically, are unlikely to die from COVID.
Hardaway, 51, was hospitalized back in November with an unspecified illness, which some suspected without proof was COVID – including many left-leaning news outlets that ran with the headline that appears to have begun with a “Black news” online outlet called “Blavity News” (which has since deleted that article).
But that diagnosis was never confirmed by the pair, and Hardaway denied those claims after returning to the Saturday Newsmax show she shared with her sister on December 15.
Regardless of whether Hardaway died from COVID complications or one of any number of other medical issues, let’s just state for the record that if someone – anyone – passes away and your response is anything other than sincere sympathy and condolences, you’re a terrible human being.
