Trump mourns the death of Diamond and Silk’s Lynette Hardaway

Lynette Hardaway, better known as “Diamond” from prominent conservative group Diamond and Silk, has died, according to a statement on the duo’s Twitter account.

“The world just lost a true angel and warrior patriot for freedom, love and humanity!” Read this tweet monday night “Please respect Diamond’s family’s privacy!”

Hardaway and her sister Rochelle “Silk” Richardson first gained traction in conservative circles as Diamond and Silk in the 2016 election cycle after posting a series of social media offers in support of then-presidential nominee Donald Trump. The duo, who claimed to be former President Trump’s “most loyal supporters,” also appeared at several White House events during Trump’s presidency and occasionally spoke at his campaign rallies.

According to the team’s Facebook page, Diamond and Silk most recently hosted a daily talk show on FrankSpeech, a social media platform founded by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.

Trump posted a tribute to Diamond on his Truth Social account Monday night, announcing that the conservative activist had died at her North Carolina home.

“Silk was with her all the way and at her death,” the post reads. “There was never a better TEAM anywhere and at no time!”

“Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just gave up the ghost,” he continued. “Rest in peace our magnificent diamond, you will be greatly missed!”

Other conservative leaders also took to social media to mourn Diamond’s death, including the North Carolina state representative Richard HudsonShe wrote on Twitter: “Pray with us for your family.”

Frank Pavonnational director of the anti-abortion group Priests for Life tweeted a photo of the sisters and wrote: “May she rest in peace.

“And may we all follow their example of being outspoken advocates for freedom, unafraid to stand up for America’s greatness and unafraid to criticize those who seek to destroy it,” Pavone continued.

Florida representative Matt Gaetz also posted a screenshot of Trump’s tribute and wrote on Twitter, “Very sad news.”

Since their notoriety, Diamond and Silk have supported multiple conspiracy theories, including one early in President Joe Biden’s administration in April 2021, when the pair suggested that someone other than Biden was actually in charge of the executive branch.

Diamond and Silk were also temporarily suspended from their Twitter account in 2020 after spreading false information about COVID-19, and their claims violated guidelines outlined by the Trump administration. Her claims of a coronavirus conspiracy eventually led to her being banned from her regular appearances on Fox News online streaming service, Fox Nation.
