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.

Former President Donald Trump posted a tribute to Hardaway, 51, on his platform Truth Social, where he praised his iconic, sassy fan who made name for herself alongside "Silk" - her sister, Rochelle Hardaway Richardson - in viral videos blasting leftist politicians and their agenda.

"Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina," Trump posted.

"There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time!" he continued, adding that Hardaway's death "was totally unexpected."

“Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!” Trump ended his post.

While their claim to fame first began in videos posted to social media ahead of the 2016 presidential election, the duo of hilariously sassy black women quickly rose to national prominence particularly among Trump supporters, often appearing at Trump's rallies and even visiting him at the White House. The sisters later landed a Fox News gig that ran from 2018 to 2020, and later launched a once weekly stint on Newsmax.

Our prayers go out to the Hardaway family and all who loved her.
