Claim : Big Pokey Died Suddenly On Stage From Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Big Pokey died suddenly while rapping on stage, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 48 year-old Houston rapper was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Concerned Citizen : Dear Pro Covid Vaxers, Do you seriously not want to know what the fuck is going on?

Another horribly saddening case of ‘died suddenly’ to somebody performing – this time Big Pokey aka Milton Powell. RIP.

There are THREE other stories like this – just from today. These continued sudden deaths are not coincidences. Rather than RISK finding out, it COULD BE the vaccine you would rather play PRETEND & ignore this is even happening.

You were ABSOLUTELY PETRIFIED during Covid – now MORE people are dying each week excessively & you prefer to PRETEND they’re not. Absolutely insane – wake up please.

RIP Big Pokey. Looks like maybe another victim of the mRNA Vaccines. #mRNA #Vaccines #Pfizer #Moderna #BillGates

The vax drop. Safe and effective. #RIP Big Pokey

No Evidence Big Pokey Died Suddenly From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Big Pokey Collapsed While Rapping On Stage

Big Pokey (born Milton Powell on November 29, 1974) was an American rapper from Houston, Texas; and one of the original members of the Screwed Up Click. He released an album called Hardest Pit in the Litter in 1999, before acting in the 2001 film, Soldiers United for Cash, and then Dirty Third 2: Home Sweet Home.

On Saturday, June 17, 2023, Big Pokey was performing at a Beaumont bar for Juneteenth, when he appeared to be breathless before suddenly collapsing and falling backwards onto the stage.

Big Pokey was rushed to the St. Elizabeth hospital, where he died overnight on Sunday, June 18. His death was first announced on Instagram the same day by fellow Houston rapper Bun B:

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our beloved Milton “Big Pokey” Powell. Big Pokey passed away on June 18, 2023. He was well loved by his family, his friends, and his loyal fans. In the coming days, we will release information about his celebration of life and how the public can pay their respects. We ask that you respect his family and their privacy during this difficult time. Big Pokey will forever be “The Hardest Pit in The Litter”!

Fact #2 : Big Pokey Was 48 Years Old When He Died

It is odd that many people are claiming on social media that Big Pokey was 45 years old when he died.

The truth is Big Pokey / Milton Powell was born on November 29, 1974, and was 48 years old when he died.

This may not sound important – 45 years old vs. 48 years old – but it goes to show that these people don’t have a high regard for the truth, or simply don’t bother to verify anything they post.

Fact #3 : Big Pokey’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

It is odd that so many people who have never heard of Big Pokey before his death are now claiming on social media that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

What’s the evidence? They certainly provided zero evidence to back up their claims. Heck, we don’t even know anything about Big Pokey’s health, and whether he had any medical condition!

The truth is – we do not know yet how Big Pokey died. No official cause of death has been released, because his family is still waiting for the results of an autopsy that has been conducted on Big Pokey.

On June 20, the preliminary autopsy was inconclusive, as there was no “pathological” cause for his death. As such, Justice of the Peace Tom Gillam III ordered a full toxicology panel to find out what killed Big Pokey.

Until the final autopsy results are publicly revealed by the coroner, and/or his family, anyone who claims that Big Pokey died from this or that cause of death is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Big Pokey Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Big Pokey / Milton Powell has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Some people pointed out that Big Pokey once posted a photo of himself wearing a face mask as “evidence” that he must have been vaccinated because he was so “compliant”.

Well, Big Pokey did post one short video clip (not photo) of himself wearing a face mask on June 14, 2021, However, he is not seen wearing a face mask in any of the other photos or videos in his official Instagram account. So no, Big Pokey wasn’t “compliant” as they claim.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Big Pokey / Milton Powell suffered a COVID-19 vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Big Pokey was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have been fully-vaccinated more than two years ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not years later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #6 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Often Proven False

Most claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…
