Cause of Death
The duo’s tweet shared the news along with a link accepting contributions for Lynnette’s memorial service through a website called giveengo.com. The tweet said:
“The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity! Please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family! Memorial Ceremony TBA.”
The two sisters, Ineitha Lynnette Hardaway and Herneitha Rochelle Hardaway (Silk), were born in Fayetteville, North Carolina to pastoral parents. The sisters were not twins and were a year apart. Lynnette was born in November 1971 and Rochelle was born in 1970. They have three other siblings.
The duo was best known for their political commentary, vlogging, and being ardent supporters of Donald Trump. They received media attention in 2016 during the presidential election after they sensationally switched from lifelong Democrats to stalwart Republicans after Trump’s run for the White House was announced a year earlier.
In 2019, Facebook deemed her page “unsafe for the community” and subsequently removed it from the platform. Additionally, the duo was fired from their roles at Fox News in 2020 after contributing to conspiracy theories around COVID-19. On the air, they claimed that the death toll from the virus was being manipulated to give Trump a “bad image”.
They appeared several times on FOX News as guests during Trump’s tenure as president and their features included appearances with him in the Oval Office.
Trump announced the news of Lynnette’s passing on his social media app. He called her “magnificent” and mentioned that her sister was with her “all the time and when she passed away” at her North Carolina home. He also said:
“There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably because her big and precious HEART just plain gave out. Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed.”
While no information has been released about her cause of death, Lynnette’s health was a concern in November 2022 when the duo’s shared Twitter account pleaded with fans to pray for her. More information will be released via the duo’s Twitter account.
