Another Great Loss: ‘Diamond’ of the Duo ‘Diamond and Silk’ Has Died


The web has seen a genuine outpouring of grief for Lynnette Hardaway, known as “Diamond” half of the podcasting, Trump-supporting, black women “Diamond and Silk.” Here is a link to the Epoch Times article about President Trump issuing a release about her.

I first heard the news on Twitter this morning, and it was heartwarming to read all the warm prayers and comments about what a wonderful person she was. Of course, there was the expected crap thrown about by the various leftist trolls who inhabit Twitter, but every one received dozens of angry responses from those who loved her. Elon Musk’s newly free public square mostly showed how many thousands of fans Diamond and Silk have, and how much sadness is engendered by Diamond’s death.

R.I.P., our wonderful “Diamond.”  I did make the comment that she is in heaven now, conversing with Rush Limbaugh.

    They took it down from YouTube, but their commentary on the North Carolina bathroom laws was just epic. lol I forget all the details but they had a democrat governor and it was about transgenders or something.

    She was only 51? What happened to her?  Very sad to hear.

    This is just vile.  Like dancing on a grave.  What a creep.  Good on her for kicking back!

    I’ve only heard of them, but never actually heard them.  What I heard about them was very good.  I’ll have to give them a listen.  Anyplace in particular to start?

    51 is far too young to die.  I pray peace and serenity to her family, friends, and admirers.

    I think I listened to one podcast that David Rubin or somebody else was on. They were funny and warm hearted. I am sorry for their loss.
