The Left’s hate and vitriol toward Lynette Hardaway, known to the world as “Diamond” of “Diamond and Silk,” was on display Tuesday with reactions to her passing away.
“The party of ‘love, empathy and tolerance’ is currently celebrating the death of Diamond from Diamond and Silk,” Collin Rugg tweeted. “We are up against some very disturbing people.”

We are up against some very disturbing people.
Hip-Hop Wired staff writer Robert Longfellow wrote that “the MAGA crowd has the sads, but you can’t really trust that they have actual feelings, respectfully.”
Marc Lamont Hill was lambasted on Twitter for saying, “you cannot script this stuff” in a tweet about her death.
Diamond —of the right-wing, Trump- loving duo Diamond and Silk— has died. In late November, she was hospitalized due to COVID-19. The duo was fired by Fox News a couple years ago for spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines. You cannot script this stuff.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) January 10, 2023
Hill was forced to tweet, “I find no pleasure in Diamond’s death,” but added, “the potential ironies connected to her death are noteworthy. And, frankly, sad.”
I find no pleasure in Diamond’s death. She was a human being. She was loved. I wish comfort for those who are grieving her passing. Still, as a public figure, her life and passing will be analyzed. The potential ironies connected to her death are noteworthy. And, frankly, sad.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) January 10, 2023
Lynette Hardaway, aka ‘Diamond’ from the MAGA Trump supporting duo Diamond and Silk, died from contracting what she called ‘a hoax’ better known as COVID-19.— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) January 10, 2023

“LOL,” a person responded. Another said, “This clip made me laugh a little too loud.”
One man claimed, “she’s burning in hell” after taking “Trump’s medical advice.”
At the end of the day, Diamond took Trump's medical advice and now she's burning in hell. MAGA, let that be an example to you.— I Smoked 💎 (@BlackKnight10k) January 10, 2023
Another man tweeted, “Diamond was a buffoon who died because she drank the Kool-Aid, believed the lies and hype, and did her part to perpetrate the fraud. There is little else that can be said.”
“Diamond arent forever, apparently,” one user mockingly tweeted.
“So why is the other one still alive?” another person asked.
“Who had a bigger loss yesterday? Diamond and Silk or TCU?” a man asked.
Other responses included references to “Darwinism” and “Karma,” and called her a “clown” and a “grifter.”
“I will never understand how people can cheer the death of another simply because of their politics. And we see this time and time again on the Left – Scalia, Limbaugh, Cain, now Diamond,” the @PolitiBunny tweeted.

It is only your own humanity and spirit you damage when you do this.
