Did Amy Schumer Develop VAIDS After Third Booster?!

Did Amy Schumer just reveal that she developed VAIDS after getting her third COVID-19 booster dose?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Amy Schumer Developed VAIDS After Third Booster!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Amy Schumer just revealed that she developed VAIDS after getting her third COVID-19 booster dose!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Amy Schumer Says She Developed VAIDS After Third Booster

Recommended : Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?!

 

Truth : Amy Schumer Did Not Develop VAIDS After Third Booster!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Amy Schumer Did Not Say She Developed VAIDS

The People’s Voice article claimed that Amy Schumer “revealed that she developed full-blown Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS) as a direct result of getting multiple COVID jabs“.

Amy Schumer has not made any statements claiming that she developed full-blown VAIDS after getting multiple COVID-19 vaccine injections.

As usual, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : Amy Schumer Was Diagnosed With Cushing’s Syndrome

On Tuesday, 13 February 2024, Amy Schumer appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where people noticed that her face appeared puffier than usual.

After her puffy appearance went viral on social media, Amy posted on Instagram that she was going through “some medical and hormonal things” due to endometriosis.

I’ve enjoyed feedback and deliberation about my appearance as all women do for almost 20 years. And you’re right it is puffier than normal right now. I have endometriosis an auto immune disease that every woman should read about. There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now but I’m okay.

Later, she would be diagnosed with Cushing’s syndrome, which was caused by getting steroid injections in high doses.

ISo finding out I have the kind of Cushing that will just work itself out and I’m healthy was the greatest news imaginable. It has been a crazy couple weeks for me and my family.

Fact #3 : Endometriosis Is Not AIDS

Just in case there is any confusion, endometriosis is not AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is caused by HIV – the Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

Why would anyone claim that Amy Schumer developed AIDS when she clearly stated that she has endometriosis???

Fact #4 : Cushing’s Syndrome Isn’t AIDS Either

While high doses of steroid suppresses the immune system, it isn’t AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is caused by HIV – the Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

To be clear – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause Cushing’s syndrome.

Fact #5 : Vaccine AIDS Does Not Exist

This is silly, but let me also point out that there is no medical disease called VAIDS – Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. It appears to be something made-up by anti-vaccination activists to scare people.

AIDS is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Nothing else causes AIDS. Certainly no vaccine, not even the COVID-19 vaccine, causes AIDS.

Robert Charles Gallo – one of the two scientists who independently discovered that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was responsible for AIDS, said in response to the 2021 claim by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro that COVID-19 vaccines cause AIDS:

[I]t’s hard to believe anyone would claim that the covid-19 vaccine causes AIDS. We know what causes AIDS.

I don’t know what your president said. So I don’t want to be too critical. But it is obvious that neither the covid-19 vaccine nor any other vaccine causes AIDS.

Fact #6 : Amy Schumer Had Endometriosis For Years

Just in case you think that Amy Schumer might have developed endometriosis from her COVID-19 vaccinations, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

For one thing – endometriosis affects roughly 10% of women in their reproductive age, since time immemorial.

But more to the point – Amy Schumer had been struggling with endometriosis for years. While she did not reveal when she was first diagnosed with endometriosis, she revealed that she had her uterus and appendix removed in September 2021, after years of suffering.

So, it’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out. The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.

There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus and I’m, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains.

Amy Schumer also revealed in August 2020 (before the COVID-19 vaccines were approved!) that she “couldn’t be pregnant ever again” due to how her endometriosis affected her fertility.

To be clear – Amy Schumer’s endometriosis isn’t new, or related to the COVID-19 vaccines. She has been suffering from endometriosis for many years.

Interestingly, the cover photo of The People’s Voice article were taken from Amy Schumer’s September 2021 Instagram posts. So it appears they knew she was suffering from endometriosis for many years, and it had nothing to do with multiple vaccine booster doses.

Fact #7 : Study Did Not Mention AIDS / VAIDS!

The People’s Voice article pointed to a study which purportedly showed COVID-19 vaccines causing VAIDS in children. That’s not true.

The study did not mention AIDS, VAIDS, or even immunodeficiency. It was also conducted only in a laboratory, using blood samples from 29 children – none of whom were found to have developed any side effect or disease from their COVID-19 vaccinations!

So why would anyone claim that this study showed children developing Vaccine AIDS from the COVID-19 vaccines???

Fact #8 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Was Stephen Colbert Arrested For Fraud + Child Sex?!

Was Stephen Colbert just arrested for taking part in the Plandemic fraud, as well as molesting little boys and girls?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Stephen Colbert Was Arrested For Fraud + Child Sex!

On 28 and 29 November 2023, Real Raw News posted two articles claiming that Stephen Colbert was just arrested for taking part in the Plandemic fraud, as well as molesting little boys and girls!

As usual, the articles were long, rambling and confusing, so here are some excerpts. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Recommended : Is Italian Health Minister under investigation for vaccine murder?!

 

Truth : Stephen Colbert Was Not Arrested At All!

The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Everything posted by Real Raw News must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on creating shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

This disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I debunked earlier:

Fact #2 : Stephen Colbert Is Recovering From Surgery

It is impossible for Stephen Colbert to be arrested on Monday, 27 November 2023, outside of his home because he was recovering from emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix.

He could not have been arrested while preparing to go for a run in a blue jogging suit, while wearing $60,000 Bulgari Flora sunglasses.

He would end up cancelling two weeks of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” as he continues to recover from his surgery.

Fact #3 : Stephen Colbert Is Still Active On Social Media

Stephen Colbert actually posted on Instagram about his surgery for a ruptured appendix on Tuesday, 28 November 2023:

Sorry to say that I have to cancel our shows this week. I’m sure you’re thinking, “Turkey overdose, Steve? Gravy boat capsize?” Actually, I’m recovering from surgery for a ruptured appendix. I’m grateful to my doctors for their care and to Evie and the kids for putting up with me. Going forward, all emails to my appendix will be handled by my pancreas.

This occurred one day after Michael Baxter / Tuffin claimed that JAG investigators arrested Stephen Colbert while he was preparing to go for a jog…

Recommended : Did Australia Approve Mandatory Bill Gates mRNA Vaccine?!

Fact #4 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that JAG investigators arrested Stephen Colbert is absurd. The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Stephen Colbert.

The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

Fact #5 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

JAG officers are not law enforcement officers. They are really military lawyers, and have no powers to arrest anyone – not even military personnel.

They can investigate crimes, defend or prosecute service members accused of those crimes. But JAG officers cannot actually arrest anyone.

Everything posted by Real Raw News should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.

Jamie Foxx Proves He’s NOT Blind Or Paralysed!

Jamie Foxx has publicly proven that he is not blind or partially paralysed as rumoured!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Foxx Blind + Paralysed By COVID Vaccine Blood Clot!

Back in May 2023, people were sharing articles about Jamie Foxx being blind and partially paralysed after suffering a blood clot in his brain (stroke) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are selected quotes and comments, which are all based on claims made by gossip columnist, A. J. Benza:

Journalist A.J Benza is now claiming that the actor’s health has worsened due to a “blood clot in his brain.” The journalist added that the clot has led to Jamie being “partially blind and paralyzed.”

The journalist has said that a well-placed source tells him that the reason behind Foxx’s mysterious illness was a COVID vaccine. He also adds that the actor was pressured into taking the vaccine. “Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” Benza claimed.

He also made a shocking revelation when he added, “The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind.”

Charlie Kirk : According to reports, Jamie Foxx is now “paralyzed and blind” from a blood clot in his brain after receiving the COVID-19 “vaccine.”

Those of us who spoke against the mRNA shot were attacked in every imaginable way. I am infuriated a decent person like Jamie Foxx fell victim to Big Pharma because a movie set is still dumb enough to mandate their cash cow clot shot.

Candace Owens : Their silence seems as though there is some veracity to this claim. We’re all holding our breath to see whether or not Jamie Foxx speaks out.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Jamie Foxx Was Not Blind Or Paralysed!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity 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 : Jamie Foxx Did Not Reveal His Medical Emergency

Born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967, Jamie Foxx was in Atlanta, Georgia filming his Netflix movie, Back in Action, when he suffered a “medical emergency” on April 11, 2023.

The medical emergency apparently occurred off the set, and he was taken to a hospital. His daughter, 29 year-old actress Corinne Foxx, was the one who announced his condition to the world, but she refused to divulge what that medical emergency was.

On Sunday, 23 July 2023, Jamie Foxx spoke publicly in an Instagram video for the first time about his medical emergency, but even then he did not reveal what he suffered from.

The truth is – we, the public, do NOT know what kind of “medical emergency” Jamie Foxx suffered from on April 11, 2023.

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals what that “medical emergency” was, anyone who claims that it was “this” or “that” is likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Had Blood Clot In Brain

Initially, people speculated that Jamie Foxx suffered a ruptured aneurysm like Tom Sizemore, but there was no evidence of that at all.

A. J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx actually suffered from “a blood clot in his brain”, but provided no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. Could that be a doctor or nurse violating the HIPAA law, or a hospital cleaner with no medical knowledge? Who knows?

Interestingly, one of Jamie Foxx’s close friends earlier told Media Take Out that Foxx suffered a brain bleed (haemorrhage) that was discovered when he sought medical attention for headaches. His friend said that he had been suffering from severe headaches frequently.

A brain haemorrhage causes a haemorrhagic stroke, while a blood clot causes an ischaemic stroke. They are both “strokes”, but with completely different treatments. So which is it?

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals his medical condition, it is unknown if he suffered from a ruptured aneurysm, a haemorrhagic stroke, or an ischaemic stroke.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Was Blind / Paralysed

A. J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx is now blind and partially paralysed, but offered no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. His claims run contrary to previous updates by Jamie Foxx’s daughter and friends.

Back in April 2023, one of his close friends disclosed that the doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

On 12 May 2023, his daughter – Corinne Foxx, posted an update criticising rumours that Jamie Foxx’s condition had worsened:

Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.

Then, on May 15, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne Foxx will host a music game show called We Are Family on its network in 2024. Corinne Foxx confirmed it on her Instagram the same day:

WE ARE FAMILY coming 2024!🎶👨‍👧🪩 The Foxx Family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show! 🦊📺

All that suggest that Jamie Foxx is not blind or partially paralysed. While he can certainly play pickleball and host a show while partially paralysed, it would be impossible for him to do both while blind!

I should also point out that Corinne Foxx and Jamie Foxx’s good friend, Dave Brown, were both seen visiting a physical rehabilitation centre in Chicago, which treats patients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. This suggests that Jamie Foxx is undergoing physical therapy for some kind of impairment.

Fact #4 : Jamie Foxx Proved He Was Not Blind Or Paralysed

While Jamie Foxx did not publicly come out and refute A. J. Benza’s claims in May 2023, his representative labelled the claims by A. J. Benza as “untrue” and “completely inaccurate“.

Then on July 21, 2023, Jamie Foxx posted a photo of himself looking dapper in a black suit on top of a golden BetMGM race car. That photo was reportedly taken during the shooting of a new BetMGM commercial on Wednesday, 19 June 2023, in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort and Casino.

This was the first time Jamie Foxx has gone back in front of the cameras since his health scare. But prior to this, Jamie Foxx was seen playing pickle ball in Chicago, and at a golf driving range near Chicago, and even taking a cruise down the Chicago River on a boat!

Then on Sunday, July 23, 2023, Jamie Foxx posted an Instagram video in which he publicly spoke about his hospitalisation for the first time.

He shared that he appreciated how his family kept his condition “airtight”, before demonstrating that his eyes were “working just fine”, and saying that he was “not paralysed”. He also said that people would now be seeing him in public more often.

I just want to say I love everybody and I love all the love that I got.

If you see me out from now on and every once in a while I just burst into tears, it’s just because it’s been tough, man. I was sick, man. But now I got my legs under me, so you’re gonna see me out.

Truth : Mike Batayeh Did Not Die From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity 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 : Mike Batayeh Died From Suicide!

Actor and comedian Mike Batayeh (born Michael Batayeh on 27 December 1970) played Dennis Markowski – the manager of Gustavo Fring’s Lavandería Brillante industrial laundromat in three episodes of Breaking Bad, from 2011-2012.

According to his sister, Diane, Mike Batayeh died suddenly in his sleep from a heart attack, at his Michigan home on June 1, 2023. He was survived by five sisters, and many nephews and nieces.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that my sisters and I announce the passing of our dear brother @Mike Batayeh on Thursday June 1 2023. He will be greatly missed by those who loved him and his great ability to bring laughter and joy to so many. Funeral arrangements will be posted at a later date. #mikebatayeh #mikebatayehbreakingbad

However, the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner’s Office revealed on June 13, that Mike Batayeh’s official cause of death was “asphyxia hanging“. In other words, Mike Batayeh committed suicide.

Fact #2 : Law Enforcement Was Called To His Apartment

According to a police report, the Pittsfield Township Police Department was called to Mike Batayeh’s third-floor, one-bedroom apartment for an “unattended death” and “possible suicide”.

A male relative who filed the report said that he was aware of Mike Batayeh’s “turbulent mental health”, and Batayeh had spent a weekend with him late last month to “distract himself”. The relative also said that Mike Batayeh attempted suicide about a decade ago.

The police report also noted that another witness, identified as his therapist, claimed that Mike Batayeh had been his client “off and on for the past seven years”, and the witness had become concerned when Batayeh missed a scheduled appointment on the morning he died.

Read more : Did Tom Sizemore Die From Vaccine-Induced Stroke?!

Fact #3 : Mike Batayeh Tweeted About Suicide Earlier

Mike Batayeh posted several times about suicide on Twitter:

  • April 9, 2015 : Let’s face it…..Jesus was suicidal and as a roman Catholic I was taught suicide is a SIN….Double stan[d]ard because he was the bosses son.
  • April 17, 2016 : You ever been so bored you contemplate suicide just because it’s something to do?
  • Nov. 20, 2019 : Holiday season is here. It’s a time of reflection and rebirth. It’s also a time of depression and suicide. It’s all perspective. #tistheseason

Fact #4 : Mike Batayeh Was Fully Vaccinated In May 2021

Mike Batayeh was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, after receiving his first Moderna vaccine dose on April 9, 2021, and his second dose on May 7, 2021.

I’m a card carrying member of the “New World Order”.
#vaccinator #covid #novid

While it is unknown if he received a booster dose, it is plausible he may have received one in December 2021.

2021 Christmas tip:

Covid boosters make a great stocking stuffer this season.
#christmas #covidvacccine

I should point out that the last acting gig Mike Batayeh participated in was a TV movie called Prank of America in 2018. There is no evidence Batayeh was “forced” to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in any filming.

Uncle Roger Cancelled In China After Xi Jinping Joke!

Malaysian comedian Uncle Roger just got cancelled from Chinese social media platforms after making jokes about Xi Jinping and China!

 

Uncle Roger Cancelled In China After Xi Jinping Joke!

Uncle Roger just got cancelled from Chinese social media platforms after making jokes about Xi Jinping and China!

The Malaysian comedian, whose real name is Nigel Ng, said that his accounts on Bilibili and Weibo where he has 400,000 followers, were suspended due to a “violation of relevant laws and regulations“!

This crackdown by Chinese authorities came after he posted a video clip on Twitter and YouTube called “Uncle Roger about to get cancelled“.

In that video clip, which appears to be from an undated standup show, Uncle Roger cracked some jokes about China and Taiwan.

Uncle Roger : Are you from Boston?

Audience : Originally from Guangzhou.

Uncle Roger : Guangzhou, China. China, okay, China. Good country. Good country. Good country. Good country. Phew! We have to say that now, correct? All the phone listening. All the phone listening. This nephew got HUAWEI phone. They all listening.

Uncle Roger (tapping his phone) : All our phone tap into it. Long live President Xi. Long live President Xi. Phew! Uncle Roger social credit score going up. Nice.

Uncle Roger : Any niece and nephew from Taiwan?

[Audience woos]

Uncle Roger : Not a real… not a real country. I hope one day you rejoin the motherland. One China.

[Audience laughs]

Uncle Roger : No, don’t clap too hard. This not political show. No, don’t clap. Uncle Roger gonna get cancelled after tonight.

Uncle Roger (looking at audience member) : Nice. Go write good report for Uncle Roger, okay? Dear CCP, Uncle Roger good comrade. Good comrade. Don’t make him disappear, please.

Even though both Twitter and YouTube are not accessible in China, Chinese authorities apparently felt aggrieved enough to order the cancellation of Uncle Roger’s social media accounts in China.

Uncle Roger Proves Chinese Cancel Culture + Rides Controversy!

Despite being cancelled on Chinese social media, and losing access to thousands of his fans, this appears to be a deliberate and incredibly smart move by Nigel Ng.

Chinese comedian Li Haoshi (who goes by the stage name, House), was just arrested and fined $2.1 million for making a joke about a Xi Jinping slogan. So Nigel Ng is well aware of the danger of criticising Xi Jinping and/or the CCP government.

Yet, he deliberately dropped the video clip on Twitter and YouTube right after the Li Haoshi controversy exploded, with the title “Uncle Roger about to get cancelled“. And the CCP government in China took his bait, and promptly cancelled him.

In one swoop, Nigel made his Uncle Roger character famous worldwide. His cancellation is now international news, exposing millions of people to his jokes and character. His 400,000 Weibo fans are now a drop in the bucket. His two video clips have now been viewed MILLIONS of times!

And thanks to his newfound fame and reach, Nigel Ng should see a huge boost in pre-order of the full video which is set to be released on June 4, 2023.

Recommended : China Unveils New Incentives For Wumao + CCP Uncles!

By taking Nigel’s bait, the CCP government just showed the world how it does not operate according to the rule of law. Rather, the CCP government under President Xi Jinping operates autocratically using the rule by law. Anyone who offends Xi Jinping or the CCP government in any way, will get the law thrown at them, whether it is right or not.

The controversy also highlighted the difference between CCP-controlled mainland China, and democratic Taiwan. Even though Uncle Roger in the clip called Taiwan “not a real country”, he was not cancelled in Taiwan because Taiwan not only allows free speech, it protects that right in its constitution.

Nigel Ng certainly isn’t losing any sleep over getting cancelled by the CCP government in China, because he now lives in the United Kingdom where free speech is also protected. In fact, he just doubled down by reposting the video on Twitter, with the message “for some reason this clip got a ton of views this past weekend. I wonder why” together with a pre-order link for his full video.

I should point out that this is not Nigel Ng’s first rodeo with Chinese nationalists.. In January 2021, he was severely criticised on Weibo for collaborating with Chinese-American YouTuber Mike Chen, who is well-known for his critical views of the CCP government.

Even though both did not mention politics during their vote, the social media backlash forced Nigel to apologise for the collaboration, even acknowledging that the video created a “bad social impact”. At that time, he removed all videos involving Mike Chen – which drew criticism that he was too weak.

However, it appears that Nigel Ng may have grown some cojones since then. Good for him!

What dastardly crime did Li Haoshi / House commit to deserve such a massive fine, and arrest? Well, the Chinese comedian simply made a joke using a CCP slogan created by Chinese President Xi Jinping!

The fine was issued by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, which concluded that his show was “a plot amounting to a serious insult to the People’s Liberation Army, and creates a bad social influence“.

We will never allow any company or individual to wantonly slander the glorious image of the People’s Liberation Army on a stage in the [Chinese] capital, never allow the people’s deep feelings for the soldiers to be hurt, and never allow serious subjects to be turned into entertainment.

What a glorious statement indeed by the most noble bureau of culture in China!

The Bureau confiscated RMB 1.32 million in “illegal proceeds” from the entertainment company representing House, and fined it RMB 13.35 million. The company was also banned from performing in Beijing indefinitely.

But that was not the end. On Wednesday, May 17, the Chaoyang branch of the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau stated that an investigation was opened against Li Haoshi / House for making “derogatory remarks against the People’s Liberation Army”.

On the morning of Thursday, May 18, the comedian was arrested by the police. There has been no word on his whereabouts since then.

The US$2.1 Million CCP Joke That Made China Mad!

So what exactly was the world’s most expensive joke all about?

During his show in Beijing on Saturday, Li Haoshi / House spoke about how he adopted two stray dogs since moving to Shanghai. He joked that when they chased after a squirrel one day, he was reminded of these eight words:

作风优良,能打胜仗
Good style of work, capable of winning battles

That was a flipped version of the slogan that was coined by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013, when he set out a list of qualities he wanted from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA)

建设一支听党指挥能打胜仗作风优良的人民军队
Build a people’s army that obeys the party’s command and can win battles with a good style of work

In the audio shared to Weibo, his audience can be heard laughing at the joke. Unfortunately, it went viral and caught the attention of Chinese nationalists and then the CCP government.

His joke was deemed to be insulting because “dogs” and “stray dogs” are used as insults in China. It is also common for Chinese netizens to also use insults like “American lapdogs”, for example.

In other words, his joke was perceived to be insulting both President Xi Jinping (who coined the slogan), and the PLA by referring to its soldiers as “stray dogs” that can win battles with a good style of work.

At military parades, especially when Xi Jinping is watching, PLA soldiers will often shout the slogan:

听党指挥,能打胜仗,作风优良!
Follow the Party’s command, capable of winning battles, with excellent conduct!

Recommended : Winnie the Pooh patch : TW’s middle finger to Xi Jinping!

Now, such jokes may be par for the course in many free, democratic societies, but Li Haoshi / House appeared to have forgotten that China under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is neither free nor democratic.

If he made the same joke using a slogan by Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, he would have gotten only laughs, because Taiwan is free and democratic. Unfortunately, he made a joke about the CCP and the PLA. Even worse, he made a joke about something Xi Jinping said, and that was the ultimate sin that anyone in mainland China can commit.

Li Haoshi / House and his company were not the only casualties of this expensive joke. Three other comedy companies suspended all of their performances as a result of this controversy :

  • Danli Ren Comedy (单立人喜剧),
  • Owl Comedy (猫头鹰喜剧), and
  • Xiaosheng Comedy Club (笑生喜剧脱口秀俱乐部)

Even more startling – a 34 year-old woman surnamed Shi was detained by police in Dalian city, after she posted a comment online, asking “Why should House be banned? Aren’t all soldier brothers also dog brothers?

This goes to show just how closely the CCP government monitors speech in China, and how swiftly and mercilessly it strikes at people who even deigns to mock its authority.

Leslie Jordan : Autopsy + Cause of Death Revealed!

Beloved actor and comedian Leslie Jordan just died, and people are claiming he died from vaccine-induced sudden death!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-05-14 : Added the official cause of death for Leslie Jordan.
Updated @ 2022-10-28 : Added details of his last moments, and LAFD involvement.
Updated @ 2022-10-26 : Added details of his health issues, and deferred autopsy results

Claim : Leslie Jordan Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Leslie Jordan died suddenly at 67 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the beloved actor and comedian died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on his death:

Vaccine causes heart attack that causes crash RIP Wasted talent Comedian Leslie Jordan dies at age 67

Leslie Jordan died from an experimental mRNA ‘vaccine’.

Leslie Jordan had a vaccident. 💉💉💉

Recommended : Robbie Coltrane : New Victim Of Vaccine Death Claim!

 

No Evidence Leslie Jordan Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

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

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Leslie Jordan Died After Crashing His Car

Leslie Allen Jordan (born April 29, 1955) passed away on Monday, October 24, 2022 – at 67 years of age.

There is no evidence that Leslie Jordan’s death had anything to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

At about 8:47 AM that day, Leslie Jordan crashed his BMW into the side of a building at Cahuenga Boulevard and Romaine Street in Hollywood, California.

He was the sole occupant, and not breathing when the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) officers arrived at the scene.

LAFD first responders quickly freed him from his vehicle, and tried to resuscitate him for more than 40 minutes, but failed. He was pronounced dead at 9:38 AM.

LAFD responders quickly freed him from his seat belt and removed him from the vehicle to commence CPR and defibrillation, which continued with advanced life support measures by LAFD Paramedics for more than 40 minutes.
– LAFD Captain Erik Scott

A law enforcement source said that the police believe Jordan may have suffered a heart attack and lost control before slamming his car into the building.

This photo taken by TMZ showed the crash scene where Leslie Jordan’s BMW hit the building.

A tow truck later removed Leslie Jordan’s car, showing heavy damage to the front passenger’s side. The left front wheel was almost ripped off the axle, attesting to the speed at which the car slammed into the building.

Fact #2 : Leslie Jordan Was Experiencing Shortness Of Breath

In the weeks leading to his death, Leslie Jordan was experiencing shortness of breath for the last 3 weeks.

He was so discomfited by his breathlessness that he scheduled to see a cardiologist next week to check out his heart. Unfortunately, he died before he could make that appointment.

Other than being breathless, Jordan had no other obvious health issues. He got infected by COVID-19 last year, but did not appear to suffer any severe illness from it.

Fact #3 : Leslie Jordan’s Cause Of Death Was Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Leslie Jordan’s cause of death was investigated as Case number 2022-11128, by Dr. Grant Ho, the Deputy Medical Examiner at the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

On January 19, 2023, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner released the final autopsy report for Leslie Jordan, listing his official cause of death as Sudden Cardiac Dysfunction, with Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease. The manner of death was “natural“.

So there you have it – the official cause of death for Leslie Jordan was sudden cardiac arrest, and not SADS, myocarditis, or anything related to the COVID-19 vaccine!

Read more : Mikaben : Vaccine NOT Cause of Sudden Death!

Fact #4 : Leslie Jordan Was Fully Vaccinated

Leslie Jordan was fully-vaccinated, getting his first dose on 6 February 2021 and his second dose on 1 March 2021, as he revealed in a video about Dolly Parton getting vaccinated on 2 March 2021.

When he got his first dose, he pointed out that the COVID-19 vaccine was nothing compared to all the drugs he put into his body before he got sober.

I figured I’ve put a hell of a lot worse things in my body with all the drugs I’ve done before sobriety. One good benefit of being a senior citizen.

He also shared that he was “a little achy – a tiny, tiny bit, but nothing,… nothing that should keep anyone from getting vaccinated“.

By all accounts, Leslie Jordan did not suffer any ill effects from his vaccination. In fact, a day after Dolly Parton got vaccinated on 2 March 2021, he sang to the tune of her famous song, Jolene:

Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine.

Stick me in the arms and in the ass.

Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine.

No, thank you, Covid, I’m gonna take a pass.

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

Leslie Jordan was fully-vaccinated over 19 months ago. He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months 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.

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 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s a heart attack, SADS or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

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

Did Mo’Nique Die Suddenly On The Way To Hospital?!

Did comedian Mo’Nique just die suddenly on the way to the hospital?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mo’Nique Died Suddenly On The Way To Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube, Facebook and TikTok videos claiming that comedian Mo’Nique just died suddenly on the way to the hospital, with titles like :

10 minutes ago / Comedian Mo’Nique Died on the way to the hospital / Goodbye Mo’Nique

The death happened a few minutes ago, Our condolences to the family of Comedian Mo’Nique

R.I.P. We are Extremely Sad To Report About Sudden Death Of Mo’NIque

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In A High Speed Car Crash?!

 

Truth : Mo’Nique Did NOT Die Suddenly On The Way To Hospital!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page / video views and advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported Her Death

These YouTube and Facebook videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Mo’Nique’s death.

Mo’Nique may have been rather quiet in the last few years, but she is still a celebrity. If anything happened to her, the celebrity blogs and media would have covered it. If Mo’Nique died, you can be sure – it would have been covered by celebrity blogs and the media globally.

No legitimate media outlet has reported that Mo’Nique died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos?

Fact #2 : Mo’Nique Is Still Alive + Well!

Mo’Nique (born Monique Angela Hicks on December 11, 1967) is still very much alive and well, as of Friday, March 25, 2023, when she last posted a tweet. She also posted a selfie on Instagram a day earlier.

And on March 24, she dropped a trailer for her upcoming Netflix comedy special – My Name Is Mo’Nique!

All those posts came many days to weeks after those YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that she died suddenly on the way to the hospital, or unnamed causes.

Recommended : Did Bruce Willis Just Die In A Hospital?!

Fact #3 : The Videos Provided No Evidence For Her Death

To generate ad money, the videos must engage you long enough, so they come up with some story that Mo’Nique was suffering from leukaemia, and her journey to “find leukaemia”, and getting “support from France”.

The fake news creator probably wanted to say that Mo’Nique was fighting leukaemia (not find it), and received treatment in France (not get support from France), but things go lost in translation.

In any case, after watching the videos, you will realise that none of them offered any evidence that Mo’Nique had leukaemia, or died from it.

That may anger you, but it doesn’t matter. They got you to watch the video, generating income for them. And they know that most people will not realise that, and forward the fake news to their family and friends!

Fact #4 : They Used Stock Photos

If you look closely at the funeral photos that the YouTube or Facebook videos used to “prove” that Mo’Nique died, you will notice odd things like how there are only white people at her funeral.

That’s because they are stock photos. Take for photo, for example. It’s really an iStock stock photo (#155911571) called “Coffin at a funeral service in a cemetery stock photo” that was uploaded on July 27, 2011.

All they do is just tack on Mo’Nique’s photo onto the stock photo to make you think that it was her funeral.

Was Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas?!

Was comedian Joan Rivers killed for revealing that Barack Obama is gay, and Michelle Obama is a transgender woman?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas

People are sharing a video of Joan Rivers saying that Barack Obama is gay, and Michelle Obama is a transgender woman, as evidence the comedian was killed for insulting them!

WeLoveTrump : Joan Rivers “Died Suddenly” After Making This Comment About Michelle Obama…

Well since Michael Obama is trending, it’s time to pull out this little nugget. (Joan Rivers died during plastic surgery shortly after this interview).

Don’t forget just after outing Michelle Obama as a transgender, Joan Rivers went in for a “routine” surgery and died.

 

Truth : Joan Rivers Was NOT Killed For Insulting The Obamas

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to disparage Barack and Michelle Obama by misogynists and Republicans of the MAGA, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joan Rivers Made Comments On July 1, 2014

First, let me just establish some context about Joan Rivers’ comments on the Obamas.

On Monday, June 30, 2014, Joan Rivers officiated an impromptu gay wedding between two of her fans at a bookstore in New York City.

The next day, a reporter approached her on the street, and asked her about officiating that gay wedding, before asking whether the US will ever see a gay president:

Reporter : Do you think that the United States will see the first gay president or the first woman president?

Joan Rivers : Well, we already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down. You know Michelle is a tranny.

Reporter : I’m sorry, she’s a what?

Joan Rivers : A transgender. We all know. It’s OK. 

Reporter : Oh my gosh!

The viral video wrongly claims that she made the comment on July 4, 2014. She made it on July 1 – the day after she officiated the impromptu gay wedding.

It was only reported on July 3 by The Hollywood Reporter, before being picked up by mainstream media on July 4.

Fact #2 : Joan Rivers Called It A Compliment

After the story was picked up by CNN, her representative released this statement that Joan Rivers appears to have written:

I think it’s a compliment. She’s so attractive, tall, with a beautiful body, great face, does great makeup. Take a look and go back to La Cage Au Follies (sic). The most gorgeous women are transgender.

Stop it already … and if you want to talk about ‘politically correct,’ I think this is a ‘politically incorrect’ attack on me because I’m old, Jewish, a woman and a ‘hetty’ – a heteosexual …

And I plan to sue the reporter who, when he turned off his camera, tried to touch me inappropriately on the ass – luckily he hit my ankle.

Read the book … if you think that’s silly, wait to (sic) you see what I say about FDR and Eleanor!

Fact #3 : Joan Rivers Died A Week After Her Endoscopy

On August 28, 2014, Joan Rivers visited her personal throat doctor, Dr. Gwen Korovin, at Yorkville Endoscopy for an appointment to check out her sore throat and hoarseness of voice.

A gastroenterologist, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, who was the medical director of the clinic at that time, performed a laryngoscopy and saw something of concern with her vocal cords.

Dr. Gwen Korovin then started a second laryngoscopy to view Joan Rivers’ vocal cords, even though she was not certified by Yorkville Endoscopy, and only authorised to observe Cohen. It was during that procedure that her vocal cords began to swell, cutting off oxygen to her lungs and leading to a cardiac arrest.

At 9:40 AM, someone at the Yorkville Endoscopy dialled 911, reporting a patient in cardiac arrest. 5 minutes later, the New York Fire Department response team arrived at the clinic, and found that CPR was already being performed on Joan Rivers with a defibrillator attached and a breathing tube inserted into her windpipe.

The firefighters took over the CPR efforts, until an ambulance from Mount Sinai Hospital arrived at the clinic two minutes later at 9:47 AM. The ambulance crew joined in the CPR efforts, as a second NYFD unit with Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) arrived with a supervisor.

By 9:50 AM, ten rescue workers were on site, trying to revive her. She was rushed to the Mount Sinai Hospital, where she died a week later, on September 4, 2014.

Fact #4 : Joan Rivers Autopsy Revealed Her True Cause Of Death

The claim that she was killed by the Obamas was dispelled with the release of her autopsy results and cause of death on Thursday, October 16, 2014.

According to the New York Medical Examiner, Joan Rivers died from a complication of the [endoscopic] procedure she underwent, causing “anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest” that occurred “during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

The classification of a death as a therapeutic complication means that the death resulted from a predictable complication of medical therapy.

In other words, Joan Rivers suffered from laryngospasm – a spasm of her vocal cords that blocked air from reaching her lungs, resulting in a loss of oxygen supply to her brain.

Even if the Obamas wanted to kill Joan Rivers, it would be quite impossible for them to trigger laryngospasm during a procedure with multiple medical personnel in the room.

Fact #5 : Michelle Obama Isn’t Transgender

The claims that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman who was born a man is not only false, it’s absurdly ridiculous, because… she suffered a miscarriage and later gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus.

Viral photos showing Michelle Obama with a penis bulge were also proven to have been edited to falsely show that she was a transgender woman.

Robbie Coltrane Did Not Die Of Vaccine Sudden Death!

Truth : Robbie Coltrane Did NOT Die From Vaccine Sudden Death!

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

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Robbie Coltrane’s Cause Of Death Was Multiple Organ Failure

Robbie Coltrane (born Anthony Robert McMillan) OBE passed away at the Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert, Scotland on Friday, October 14, 2022.

His agent, Belinda Wright, announced his death in a statement that said:

My client and friend Robbie Coltrane OBE passed away on Friday October 14. Robbie was a unique talent, sharing the Guinness Book of Records’ Award for winning three consecutive Best Actor Baftas.

He will probably be best remembered for decades to come as Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, a role which brought joy to children and adults alike all over the world, prompting a stream of fan letters every week for over 20 years.

For me personally I shall remember him as an abidingly loyal client. As well as being a wonderful actor, he was forensically intelligent, brilliantly witty and after 40 years of being proud to be called his agent, I shall miss him.

He is survived by his sister Annie Rae, his children Spencer and Alice and their mother Rhona Gemmell. They would like to thank the medical staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert for their care and diplomacy.

Nine days later, his ex-wife, Rhona Gemmell registered Robbie Coltrane’s death in Glasgow.

Robbie Coltrane’s death certificate revealed that his official cause of death was multiple organ failure.

At the time of his death, Robbie Coltrane also suffered from sepsis, a lower respiratory tract infection, Type 2 diabetes, heart block, and obesity. Those factors, together with multiple organ failures, led to his death.

So let me repeat this for the record – Robbie Coltrane did NOT die from COVID-19 vaccines. His cause of death was multiple organ failure, complicated by sepsis, lower respiratory tract infection, Type 2 diabetes, heart block, and obesity.

Fact #2 : Robbie Coltrane Was In Ill Health

Robbie Coltrane was in ill health for the past two years, stating that he was in “constant pain all day” and disabled.

Back in 2016, he revealed that he had osteoarthritis, which caused his severe pain and limited his mobility even then. He would end up using a walking stick, and eventually, a wheelchair in 2019 while waiting to undergo knee replacement (arthroplasty) operation in the United States.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease, and is associated with an increased risk of falling, bone fractures, and premature death.

Coltrane appeared to be aware of his mortality, reflecting on it in a HBO special for the 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter franchise:

The legacy of the movies is that my children’s generation will show them to their children, so you could be watching it in 50 years’ time. I’ll not be here sadly, but Hagrid will.

Earlier this year, Robbie Coltrane was said to be having serious health issues. In June 2022, he was forced to pull out of London’s Comic Con due to medical reasons.

Recommended : Gwen Casten : Cause of sudden death NOT vaccine!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Robbie Coltrane Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Robbie Coltrane was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Fact #4 : SADS Is An Inherited Heart Condition

It is ludicrous to claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS), because SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is an inherited problem with your heart’s electrical system, which produces an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Note : There is no 2021 data until sometime in December 2022. The 2020 data was only released on 22 December 2021.

Vaccination in the United Kingdom started on 8 December 2020, with over a million doses administered by end of the month. Despite (false) claims that the vaccines cause SADS, that did not result in an increase in SADS cases.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #5 : Vaccine-Induced Death Syndrome Does Not Exist

After social media filters started clamping down on SADS, anti-vaccination activists have coined a new term – Vaccine-Induced Death Syndrome (VIDS or VDS).

There is no such thing as Vaccine-Induced Death Syndrome. It is simply a term they made up to blame every sudden death on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists claim, COVID-19 vaccines do not cause people to suddenly die.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Robbie Coltrane was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his vaccine doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months 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.

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 #7 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Chris Tucker Is Latest Celeb Killed In Death Hoax!

Find out why Chris Tucker went viral on social media, and became the latest celebrity to get killed in a death hoax!

 

Claim : Chris Tucker Is Dead / Died On The Way To The Hospital!

Chris Tucker went viral on social media over the weekend, after people started posting that he just died on the way to the hospital.

It apparently started when a Facebook page called R.I.P. Chris Tucker was created on Friday, September 30, 2022, harvesting over a million page likes with this viral message:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Friday (September 30, 2022), our beloved actor Chris Tucker passed away. Chris Tucker was born on August 31, 1972 in Atlanta. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.

In addition, YouTube creators created videos claiming that the 5th Element and Rush Hour star just died on the way to the hospital.

Read more : Fergie Is Another Victim Of Celebrity Death Hoax!

 

Truth : Chris Tucker Is Not Dead, He’s Very Much Alive!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS on Facebook and YouTube that was created to harvest Likes and video views, and here are there reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Announcement By His Agent

Chris Tucker signed with ICM Partners in April 2021, to represent him in all areas. If he died, ICM Partners would definitely issue a public statement.

Despite claims that they issued a statement on 1 October 2022, there was no such statement. Neither did his long-time manager Tracy Kramer issue any statement about his death.

Fact #2 : Jamia Tucker Did Not Mention His Death

If Chris Tucker really died, you would have expected his family members to post about it.

His niece, singer Jamia Tucker, for example shared an audition for THE WIZ, but never mentioned that her uncle died.

Fact #3 : Chris Tucker Is Currently Filming + Touring

Chris Tucker joined the cast of an upcoming movie about Nike’s pursuit of Michael Jordan for his iconic shoe deal sometime in June 2022.

In addition, he is also touring the United States for live stand-up comedy shows :

  • October 8 : Chandler, Arizona
  • October 15 : Valley Center, California
  • November 11 : Robinsonville, Mississippi
  • November 12 : Lake Charles, Louisiana

If he had actually died, the movie production would have to stop, and his live shows would have to be cancelled, with producers for both efforts issuing their own press releases.

Yet neither have happened – production of the Nike movie appears to continue as normal, and there has been no cancellation of any of Chris Tucker’s live shows.

Fact #4 : No Mention In Mainstream Media

The mainstream media has prepared obituaries for celebrities, and would be amongst the first to break the story.

Yet, not a single newspaper or news network like CNN / BBC, not even celebrity blogs like TMZ, broke the story that Chris Tucker died?

That’s because it never happened – Chris Tucker is very much still alive, and well.

Fact #5 : Chris Tucker Death Videos Offer No Evidence

The videos purportedly showing Chris Tucker dead, or bring driven to the hospital, are all fake.

They do not show him dying or dead. They also offer no evidence that he is actually dead.

Their creators just made up the story to generate views, for the ad money.

Fact #6 : This Is Just Another Example Of Celebrity Fake News

This is yet another example of fake news created by rumour and fake news blogs to drive traffic and increase page views for ad money. Here are examples of other celebrity fake news that we debunked earlier:

Don’t fall for the fake news / fake videos created by people whose only motivation is to make money from your views and clicks.

Did Netflix Star David Arnold Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did comedian and Netflix star David Arnold die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : David Arnold Died From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that David Arnold died suddenly, people started claiming that the comedian and Netflix star died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on his death:

Hmmm passed away from “Natural Causes”@ 54???The vaxxx claims another victim.

David Arnold, another victim of the deadly covid vaccine?

Saw the David Arnold comedy special on @netflix about 3 months ago.

He made a joke about you allow a dog that can lick their own private parts kiss you on your mouth but you won’t take the covid injection

Unknown causes??? Prayers for his family

 

Truth : David Arnold Did NOT Die From Vaccine SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : David Arnold Died From Natural Causes

David Arnold died on Wednesday, 7 September 2022, and his family released a statement on the same day, stating clearly that he died of natural causes.

It is with great sadness that we confirm the untimely passing of our husband, father, brother and friend, David A. Arnold.

David passed away peacefully today in his home and doctors have ruled the cause of death due to natural causes.

Please keep our family in prayer and respect our privacy at this time as we are all shocked and devastated by this loss.

His family pointedly did not mention the COVID-19 vaccine as a cause of death.

Is there even any evidence that David Arnold’s death was related in any way to vaccines? No. Anti-vaccination activists just made up that claim.

Fact #2 : Unknown If David Arnold Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if David Arnold was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Recommended : Did Charlbi Dean Kriek Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if David Arnold was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months 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.

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 #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do NOT Cause SADS

After billions of doses have been administered, there is still no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines cause SADS.

In fact, this is a rather ludicrous claim as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #5 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Did Comedian Nick Nemeroff Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Juno-nominated comedian, Nick Nemeroff, die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2022-07-06 : Added Nick’s autopsy and funeral details, as well as his condition prior to his death.
Originally posted @ 2022-06-30

 

Claim : Nick Nemeroff Died From Vaccine SADS!

After news broke that Juno-nominated comedian, Nick Nemeroff, died in his sleep, people started claiming that he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

Two doses of the vaccine! Publicly refuses any Booster!

Very healthy young 32 yr old! DIES SUDDENLY!!!!!!!!! Wake up people!!!!!!!!!!

Comedian Nick Nemeroff dies suddenly at 32…

His manager said in a text message to CBC News that he didn’t know the cause of death but that he “died in his sleep. 😱😱😱

⚠️Not so much coincidence, this is Vaccines Disaster!

Last words of Comedian Nick Nemeroff who was killed at 32 for speaking up against the vaccine… there’s a covert assassination program going on and those that speak out are targets….

No Evidence Nick Nemeroff Died From Vaccine SADS!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Nick Nemeroff’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

According to an obituary posted by a Montreal funeral home, and his manager, Morgan Flood of Grand Wave Entertainment, Nicholas (Nick) Nemeroff died in his sleep on Monday, June 27, 2022.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Nick Nemeroff, on Monday, June 27, 2022. Beloved son of Howard and Joanne. Wonderful brother and brother-in-law of Davida and Josh, Alex and Tracy Nemeroff. Incredible uncle of Ora, Imogene, Leo and Marina. Adored grandson of the late Archie Nemeroff.

His cause of death is still unknown. Unknown does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury”. Unknown means that, at this time, NO ONE KNOWS what Nick Nemeroff died of.

It also means that anyone who claims that Nick Nemeroff died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

Nick’s older brother, Alex, said that his funeral would only take place after an autopsy was performed to determine the cause of death :

We’re still waiting for word as to what happened. There were no outward signs of anything. No one expected this. He was just way too young for this to happen.

Nick’s funeral took place on July 4, 2022 so his autopsy has been completed. We should wait for the official word, from his family or manager, or an autopsy report, to know his actual cause of death.

Note : You can leave a message of condolence to the Nemeroff family here. The family also said that donations in his memory may be made to the Planned Parenthood chapter of your choice.

Fact #2 : His Manager + Family Never Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

His manager, Morgan Flood, and the Nemeroff family, never mentioned vaccine as Nick’s cause of death.

In their statements and social media posts, they never once mentioned his vaccination, or cause of death. Not even his older brother, Alex.

So anyone who claims that Nick Nemeroff died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Nick Wasn’t Feeling Well

Nick Nemeroff was slated to perform at the Comedy Nest on Saturday, 25 June 2022 – 3 days before he died, but he wasn’t feeling well.

So his older brother, Alex, left a message for Comedy Nest’ boss, David Acer, that “Nick wasn’t feeling well, and would be unable to perform“.

Fact #4 : Video Of Nick Nemeroff Was From 2021

Many anti-vaccination activists have been sharing posting a video of Nick, claiming that it showed him disparaging the Pfizer vaccine in his last words before dying.

One of them even created a video, claiming that Nick posted the video from his hospital bed.

The truth is – that was an old video Nick posted on August 23, 2021, in which he joked about being an antivaxxer for the booster shot.

I will not get the third shot. I will not.

Pfizer me once, no shame.

Pfizer me twice, shame on COVID.

Pfizer me three times, shame on you.

You want me to get a third shot, what’s next? A fifth shot?

Nick was mocking those who are worried about getting the third shot, which he received on Christmas Day, December 25, 2021.

Even in that post, he mocked those who believe that ivermectin can cure COVID-19.

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

Nick Nemeroff last received a COVID-19 vaccine more than 6 months ago, if his December 25, 2021 post above is accurate.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months 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.

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 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up sudden, unknown deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

It is possible that Nick Nemeroff may have died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

But that does not mean SADS is caused by COVID-19 vaccines. That would be rather ludicrous as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

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