Diamond & Silk, best known for being the duo who supported Donald Trump and became official Fox content creators, have quietly got the boot from Fox Nation’s streaming service.
via Daily Beast:
The sudden split comes after the Trump-boosting siblings have come under fire for promoting conspiracy theories and disinformation about the coronavirus. “After what they’ve said and tweeted you won’t be seeing them on Fox Nation or Fox News anytime soon,” a source with knowledge of the matter told The Daily Beast.
After rising to prominence during the 2016 election, Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson leveraged their newfound celebrity into regular sycophantic appearances on Fox News, resulting in President Donald Trump raving about their performances, featuring them at rallies, and treating them as “senior advisers.”
The social-media personalities were eventually tapped to provide weekly videos for Fox Nation after it launched as a subscription-based online video network. Their episodes, essentially 5-7 minute distillations of their freeform live-streams, appeared like clockwork on the streaming service until earlier this month.
No new episodes of their online program have been uploaded since April 7, as CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy first noted over the weekend. Prior to this month, the duo never missed a week posting episodes since December 2018.
No comment from Fox News or Diamond & Silk …..yet!
Diamond & Silk haven’t appeared on the network since the March 6th interview on Fox & Friends and a March 7th hit on Fox Business Network’s show hosted by Trish Regan, who was also fired by Fox after her own comments calling the pandemic an “impeachment scam.”
Diamond & Silk used their social-media platform to misinform thier followers about the COVID-19 virus outbreak. During their March 30 livestream, the women alleges the number of American who died of the coronavirus has been exaggerated to make Trump look bad.
As if he needed help….
Diamond via livestream:
“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? 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.”
“Is this being deliberately spread? Look, I’m not being a conspiracy theorist, this is real, but I’m asking my own questions. What the hell is going on?”
Silk, suggests that the disease was “man-made” and “engineered,” and also thinks if there was a “little deep-state action going on behind the scenes.” She also questioned if the World Health Organization had a “switch” to “turn this virus on and off?”
Have several seats ladies…as a matter of fact, take a few rows to reflect the stupidity that comes out of your mouths!
What’s your 2 cents!?
