Claim : Andy Delort Collapsed From Vaccine Death Spiral!

Right after news broke that Andy Delort collapsed suddenly during a soccer match in Qatar, some people immediately suggested that the French-Algerian professional footballer collapsed from the COVID-19 vaccine death spiral!

Truth : Andy Delort Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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-vaccine activists…

Fact #1 : Andy Delort Had An Epileptic Seizure

Andy Delort (أندي ديلور, born on 9 October 1991) is a French-Algerian professional footballer who is a striker for the Qatar Stars League club Umm Salal, and the Algeria national team.

On the evening of Saturday, 6 January 2024, Umm Salal was playing against Al-Arabi in Qatar, when Andy Delort scored the opening goal. Then he started spinning in a circle at the 16th minute before collapsing onto the pitch, and convulsing in an epileptic fit.

He was quickly attended to by a medical team, but recovered within a few minutes. He walked off the field, and  the game continued. Andy Delort did not need to be hospitalised, and he watched the rest of the game from the substitutes’ bench.

He even sent out an Instagram story at that time, stating “Thank you all for your messages. Everything is back to normal.” (“Merci à tous pour vos messages. Tout est rentré dans l’ordre.“)

Andy Delort later issued this message to his fans:

Hello to the whole RMC team! It’s Andy Delort to tell you that everything is going very well. I had a little bit of fatigue. We did the tests, it’s going very well. Don’t forget that we’re going to start against at Rothern’s with shows where we’re going to talk about everything and nothing, but especially football. See you soon friends, big kisses and long live Ligue 1!

To be clear – Andy Delort did not die after collapsing. Neither was he hospitalised. He only suffered an epileptic seizure, and recovered within minutes on his own.

Fact #2 : Vaccine Death Spiral Does Not Exist

The “vaccine death spiral” does not exist. Like “Turbo Cancer“, “Turbo AIDS“, or even “Vaccine AIDS“, the term “vaccine death spiral” was simply made up by anti-vaccine activists to scare you.

In fact, many cases of “vaccine death spiral” turned out to be just normal cases of seizures that did not result in death.

Fact #3 : Gyratory Seizures Existed Long Before Vaccines

I should point out that gyratory seizures, defined as a rotation around the body axis during a seizure for at least 180 degrees, have been documented long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

As William Makis himself pointed out, it was described in the 2005 Dobesberger et. al paper called Gyratory seizures revisited.

That paper revealed that 12 out of 277 patients suffered gyratory seizures, from 1998 to 2004 – that’s 15 to 21 years before the pandemic! All those patients had existing, intractable (difficult or impossible to control) epilepsies, and had been referred for “presurgical evaluation”.

Fact #4 : Seizures Are Not Side Effect Of COVID-19 Vaccines

To be clear – seizures, gyratory or not, are not a side effect of COVID-19 vaccines. There is no plausible or known pathogenesis for any vaccine to cause gyratory seizures.

Naturally, people claiming or suggesting that COVID-19 vaccines cause seizures, are unable to detail how it is possible, or provide any actual evidence. They want to convince us it’s true, but are too baffled to explain how, or show us any evidence.

In contrast, tens of billions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered worldwide, and extended monitoring over the last 3 years have shown that they do not cause seizures.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Andy Delort Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Andy Delort was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Andy Delort was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in France, Algeria, or even Qatar.

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.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Andy Delort was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Andy Delort was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two years ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered 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 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.

Did OJ Simpson Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer?!

Did OJ Simpson just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine turbo cancer?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : OJ Simpson Died From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

Right after news broke that OJ Simpson died from prostate cancer, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the former NFL star developed turbo cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Alex Jones : Watch OJ Simpson demand you get your COVID Shots. Turbo Cancers are off the charts, and we warned you.

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

Truth : OJ Simpson Did Not Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : OJ Simpson Died From Prostate Cancer

In May 2023, OJ Simpson (born Orenthal James Simpson on 9 July 1947) publicly revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer, and was undergoing chemotherapy. At that time, he did not reveal what cancer he had. It was only in February 2024 when it was reported that OJ Simpson was being treated for prostate cancer.

In the final days before his death, all of his children visited him at his home in Las Vegas, right next to the Rhodes Ranch Golf Club. On Wednesday, 10 April 2024, OJ Simpson died from prostate cancer, surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

To be clear – OJ Simpson did not die from his COVID-19 vaccination. He died from prostate cancer.

Fact #2 : His Family Did Not Blame COVID-19 Vaccines

OJ Simpson’s family announced his death on his official account on X (formerly known as Twitter):

On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer.

He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace.

-The Simpson Family

Notably, OJ Simpson’s family did not claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines, or turbo cancer.

Recommended : Did Olivia Munn Get Turbo Breast Cancer From Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : OJ Simpson Likely Had Advanced Prostate Cancer

When OJ Simpson announced in May 2023 that he was diagnosed with (prostate) cancer, he also said that he was undergoing chemotherapy. That suggests that Simpson was diagnosed with metastatic or advanced prostate cancer.

Unfortunately, the prognosis for advanced or metastatic prostate cancer is rather poor, with a 5-year survival rate of just 32%. So it is not surprising that OJ Simpson would succumb just under a year later.

Fact #4 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist!

I should also point out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and after billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 3 years – there is still no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

What OJ Simpson experienced is similar to what many men with prostate cancer have experienced. The fact that he underwent chemotherapy in May 2023 suggests that he was diagnosed with metastatic or advanced prostate cancer.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti-vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Truth : Cristiano Ronaldo Did Not Die Suddenly In Tragic Car Accident!

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 : Cristiano Ronaldo Is Still Alive + Well!

Cristiano Ronaldo (born Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro on 5 February 1985) is still very much alive and well, as of Monday, 21 March 2024!

Of course, you will want “proof of life”, don’t you? Well, Ronaldo posted a photo of himself enjoying a day out on a beach in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, 20 March 2024!

That post came after the Portuguese national team announced that Cristiano Ronaldo would not be joining its friendly match against Sweden on March 21. However, he will join the team on the eve of its match against Slovenia on March 26.

Recommended : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Tragic Accident?!

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These social media posts, as well as YouTube and Facebook videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported on Cristiano Ronald’s death!

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the world’s best footballers and a mega celebrity. His death would have been covered extensively by the media across the globe!

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

Fact #3 : Viral Car Accident Photo Was From 2009

The viral photo of a badly damaged car is genuine, and shows a car in which Cristiano Ronaldo drove and crashed. However, that happened many years ago, when the Portuguese footballer was just 23 years old!

At 10:20 am on 8 January 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari sports car into a roadside barrier in a tunnel on the A538 Wilmslow Road near the Manchester airport, on the way to train with the Manchester United team.

The car was badly damaged, with one of the front wheels sheared off and thrown over a hundred metres away. However, Cristiano Ronaldo was not injured, and got out of his car by himself, and later went on to train that morning.

Recommended : Did Simon Cowell Just Die In Tragic Car Crash?!

Fact #4 : Cristiano Ronaldo Accident + Funeral Photos Are Fake!

Because Cristiano Ronaldo never died in a car crash or a hospital, these fake news creator have to resort to using photos from other accidents or funerals.

For example, this photo does not show a screenshot of a news report about Cristiano Ronald’s tragic car accident, in which the other car fled the scene.

The fake news creator simply used a photo from a tragic accident in the Portuguese island of Madeira, where a tour bus swerved off a winding street and tumbled down a hill, killing at least 29 people and injuring dozens of other passengers.

To make it more convincing, the fake news creator added the LIVE and BREAKING NEWS chyrons to the image.

Needless to say, Cristiano Ronaldo was not onboard the tour bus. He was never there, never mind injured, or dead, in that April 2019 tragedy.

Recommended : Did Lionel Messi Die Suddenly In Tragic Car Crash?!

In this example, the fake news creator merely added an inset photo of Cristiano Ronaldo with an arrow, a crying emoji and a LIVE chyron, to a photo of the funeral procession of IRA veteran Bobby Storey, which occurred on 30 June 2020.

If you take a closer look, you will see a bagpiper and Argos – a retailer operating in the United Kingdom and Ireland. You may also notice that everyone’s white! That’s because the photo was taken in Belfast, not Portugal!

Cristiano Ronaldo is Portuguese. Why on Earth would his funeral be held in Ireland?! And why would his family want a bagpiper at his funeral?!

Fact #5 : Cristiano Ronaldo Death Hoax Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Cristiano Ronaldo death hoax is, ironically, just another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

News of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the March 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the 39-year-old footballer is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Cristiano Ronaldo Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Cristiano Ronaldo’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps of celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Is Kristoffer Olsson fighting for his life from vaccine injury?!

Is Swedish footballer Kristoffer Olsson fighting for his life in the hospital after suffering a COVID-19 vaccine injury?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-03-14 : Added Kristoffer Olsson’s diagnosis, and COVID-19 vaccination.
Originally posted @ 2024-02-28

 

Claim : Kristoffer Olsson Is Fighting For His Life After Vaccine Injury!

Recommended : Did Cristiano Ronaldo Just Die In Tragic Car Crash?!

 

No Evidence Kristoffer Olsson Is Fighting For His Life From Vaccine Injury!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on social media platforms like Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Kristoffer Olsson Has An Acute Brain Disease

Let me start by simply pointing out that FC Midtjylland posted a statement on Tuesday, 27 February 2024, stating that Kristoffer Olsson suffered an acute brain disease.

According to FC Midtjylland, the 28 year-old Swedish national team player lost consciousness at his home on Tuesday, 20 February – a week earlier. He was taken to the Aarhus University Hospital, where he was hospitalised and placed on a ventilator.

FC Midtjylland stated that Kristoffer Olsson has “an apparently acute disease related to the brain, which is not due to self-harm of any kind, nor is the cause due to external factors“.

That clearly rules out suicide, a drug overdose, or COVID-19 vaccine injury. It is possible that Kristoffer Olsson may have suffered a stroke, although the statement suggests that doctors have not made a diagnosis.

Announcement about Kristoffer Olsson

To be clear – there is no evidence that Kristoffer Olsson has suffered a vaccine injury of any kind. His football club made no such suggestion, and has clearly stated that his brain disease was not due to any “external factors”.

Not surprisingly, people have offered no evidence to back up their claims that Kristoffer Olsson suffered a COVID-19 vaccine injury.

If his doctors, family, and team, never said that Kristoffer Olsson was injured by the COVID-19 vaccine, why should you believe random strangers on the Internet who make such baseless claims???

Recommended : Did Andy Delort Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral?!

Fact #2 : Kristoffer Olsson Was Diagnosed With Vasculitis

On 7 March, FC Midtjylland issued another statement, which revealed that Kristoffer Olsson had “an extremely rare inflammatory condition in the vessels of the brain“, which led to “several small blood clots on both sides of the brain“.

The status of Kristoffer Olsson, who has now been given a definitive diagnosis.

Although the statement does not reveal the “rare inflammatory condition” Kristoffer Olsson was diagnosed with, it likely refers to a type of central nervous system (CNS) vasculitis, which is an extremely rare disease that affects fewer than 3 in 1 million people.

If the blood vessel inflammation (vasculitis) is limited to the brain and spinal cord, and in the absence of bacterial or viral infection, or systemic autoimmune diseases like SLE, then it would be classified as primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS).

There is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can trigger CNS vasculitis. In fact, if COVID-19 vaccines can cause CNS vasculitis, there would have been millions of cases of this extremely rare disease.

Fact #2 : Kristoffer Olsson Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Kristoffer Olsson never revealed his COVID-19 vaccination status, but he was likely fully-vaccinated by September 2021. However, there is no evidence he just received another COVID-19 vaccine dose “weeks ago”

Kristoffer Olsson joined RSC Anderlecht on 21 July 2021, as part of Team A. On 16 September 2021, RSC Anderlecht announced that its entire Team A was vaccinated against COVID-19. So it is likely that Kristoffer Olsson was vaccinated by that date.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even though Kristoffer Olsson was likely fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his COVID-19 vaccine more than 2.5 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.

Did Ice Spice Show Satanic Cross + Gestures At Super Bowl?!

Did Ice Spice flash demonic hand gestures, while openly wearing a Satanic inverted cross, and a Balenciaga outfit?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Ice Spice Showed Satanic Cross + Gestures At Super Bowl!

Some people have been posting a video and photos purportedly showing Ice Spice flashing demonic hand gestures at Super Bowl LVIII, while watching the game with Taylor Swift. They also claim or suggest that Ice Spice openly wearing a Satanic inverted cross, and a Balenciaga outfit, is evidence she is a Satanist!

End Wokeness : Demonic hand gestures on the big screen, upside down cross, Balenciaga sleeve.

Not even hiding it.

Recommended : Did Mel Gibson Call Prince William The Antichrist?!

 

Truth : Ice Spice Did Not Show Satanic Cross + Gestures At Super Bowl!

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of conspiracy fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter)…

Fact #1 : Devil’s Horns Are Not Satanic

The viral video clip which shows Ice Spice flashing the devil’s horns with her hands is genuine, and was recorded during Super Bowl LVIII on 11 February 2024. At that time, the American rapper was watching the game with Taylor Swift.

However, the hand gesture that is often referred to as “devil’s horns” or “sign of the horns” isn’t demonic or Satanic. In fact, several cultures use it to ward off evil spirits!

It was popularised by Ronnie James Dio of the heavy metal band, Heaven & Hell and the rock band Black Sabbath, who copied it from his Italian grandmother who often used it. In the Italian culture, the sign of the horns is a protective gesture like the pentagram. Called el corna, it is used traditionally to ward off the “evil eye” (mallocio).

It’s not the devil’s sign like we’re here with the devil. … It’s to ward off the Evil Eye or to give the Evil Eye, depending on which way you do it. So it’s a bit like “knocking on wood.”

The sign of the horns is also used by Hindus and Buddhists. The hand gesture is called “Karana Mudrā“, and is used to “expel demons” and remove “sickness or negative thoughts“. So the showing the sign of the horns is actually the OPPOSITE of worshipping Satan or evil spirits.

In modern times, the devil’s horns / sign of the horns has become a common rock ‘n’ roll gesture, and a mainstream way of saying, “Hell, yeah!“, or “Rock on!

Fact #2 : The Inverted Cross Isn’t Satanic Either!

The inverted cross that Ice Spice wore at Super Bowl LVIII is also real, and was designed by Alex Moss. However, that inverted cross isn’t Satanic or demonic either.

Thanks to horror movies, and conspiracy theories, some people believe that the upside-down or inverted cross is satanic, or the symbol of a Satanist. But it is actually the Cross of St. Peter – an ancient symbol of St. Peter’s crucifixion in Christianity.

In Christian history, St. Peter insisted that he be crucified upside down as he did not believe that he was worthy of being crucified in the same way as Jesus Christ. Hence, the Catholic Church uses the upside down cross (without a corpus) to represent St. Peter.

In fact, the Pope – as a successor of Peter, employs the inverted cross as a symbolic reminder of Saint Peter’s martyrdom. As long as the upside down cross does not have a corpus (a figure of Christ), it is not satanic or demonic.

Fact #4 : No Evidence Balenciaga Is Satanic

Bizarrely, some people are pointing out that Ice Spice wearing a Balenciaga outfit is evidence that she is Satanic.

As far as I can determine – there is nothing Satanic or demonic about a Balenciaga outfit. Needless to say – none of those who made those claims have actually provided any evidence that Balenciaga fashion is Satanic or demonic, or that Satanists wear Balenciaga to show their devotion to Satan.

Did Tony Hutson Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did former Dallas Cowboys lineman Tony Hutson die suddenly from vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Tony Hutson Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Fully vaccinated former Dallas Cowboys lineman Tony Hutson has died at the age of 49, leaving doctors and family baffled.

Recommended : Died Suddenly Movie : More Vaccine Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Tony Hutson Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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-vaccine activists…

Fact #1 : Tony Hutson Died On 3 February 2024

Tony Hutson (born Antonio Hutson on 13 March 1974), who played as an offensive lineman in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins (now Washington Commanders), passed away on 3 February 2024.

His death was only revealed in the middle of February, when his obituary and funeral details were released:

Visitation
3 to 6 PM, Friday, February 16, 2024
Serenity Gardens Funeral Services

Funeral Service
2:30 to 4:30 PM, Saturday, February 17, 2024
Dumas Community Center

Fact #2 : Tony Hutson’s Cause Of Death Was Not Revealed!

While many people are claiming that Tony Hutson died suddenly from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect, they have offered no evidence to back up their claims.

In fact, it is impossible for us, Joe Public, to know that, because Tony Hutson’s cause of death has not been revealed!

Tony Hutson could have died from any number of common causes of death in the United States – cancer, car accident, stroke, suicide, heart attack, cardiac arrest, and yes, COVID-19.

Until and unless his family, or the coroner’s office, announces his official cause of death, anyone who tells you that Tony Hutson die from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Tony Hutson Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Tony Hutson was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Tony Hutson was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

After all, Tony Hutson retired from professional football in 2001 – more than 23 years ago! Even if he was still playing professional football, he would not have been required to get vaccinated – there was no vaccine mandate for players or coaches in the NFL!

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.

Until and unless his family (or the authorities) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Tony Hutson was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Tony Hutson was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two years ago! He cannot possibly have suffered 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 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.

Truth : Lionel Messi Did Not Die In High Speed Car Crash!

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 His Death

These social media posts, as well as YouTube and TikTok videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported on Lionel Messi’s death!

Lionel Messi is one of the world’s best footballer and a mega celebrity. His death would have been covered extensively by the media across the globe! And his fans would have mourned his death on social media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet has reported that Lionel Messi died recently from any cause, never mind a tragic car accident. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / TikTok videos?

Fact #2 : Lionel Messi Is Still Alive + Well!

Lionel Messi (born Lionel Andrés Messi on 24 June 1987) is still very much alive and well, as of Tuesday, 9 January 2024.

Of course, you want proof of life, right? What you should be asking is the proof of death when you see social media claims that some celebrity or athlete has died. But I digress…

Well, Lionel Messi himself posted a photo with his family on New Year’s Day – 1 January 2024. As you can see, not only is he very much still alive, his family looks great!

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

Fact #3 : This Car Accident Photo Was From 2009

To convince you that Lionel Messi died (even though he’s still alive), the fake news creators had to make use of unrelated car crashes.

In this example, the video claimed that Lionel Messi, Xavi, and Cristiano Ronaldo, died in this car accident.

The truth is – that is a photo of a Ferrari 599 that crashed in October 2009, on the Great Ocean Road in southern Victoria, Australia. The driver was a 64 year-old man called Carlo Vaccari.

Mr. Vaccari lost control while driving his Ferrari 599 at 80 km/h and ploughed into two motorcyclists travelling in the opposite direction. He was convicted of careless driving, but only fined $3000.

Recommended : Did Simon Cowell Just Die In Tragic Car Crash?!

Fact #4 : This Car Accident Photo Was Posted In 2014

It is unknown when this car accident happened, but this undated car accident photo was posted by WreckedExotics.com on August 13, 2014.

Apparently, the driver lost control of his Ferrari 458 Italia while trying to overtake another car, and crashed into a trash bin. The driver left the scene of the accident, possibly under the influence of drugs / alcohol.

Even though this incident happened in Madrid, Spain, this photo is old and has nothing to do with Lionel Messi.

Recommended : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #5 : This Car Accident Occurred In 2012

This photo does not show Lionel Messi’s fatal car crash. This accident actually occurred at around 9 PM on 1 September 2012, at the E42 highway near Francorchamps in Belgium.

The driver was a 63 year-old man from Saint-Ghislain, and was obviously not Lionel Messi.

Recommended : Did Toby Keith Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #6 : Lionel Messi Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Lionel Messi death hoax is, ironically, also fuelled by MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in its fake fact check article:

News of footballer Lionel Messi’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the January 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the 36-year-old footballer is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Lionel Messi Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Lionel Messi’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justin Bieber, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Are Soccer Players Keeling Over From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Are soccer players keeling over while playing on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Soccer Players Are Keeling Over From COVID-19 Vaccine!

The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) activist group, which is chaired by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., just posted an article suggesting that soccer players are keeling over while playing on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Here is an excerpt from the long, rambling article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Keeling Over on the Soccer Field: Is It ‘Long COVID’ — or the Vaccines?

There is an urgent need for studies comparing the health of COVID-19-vaccinated and unvaccinated people. This research is not being done. The data that would identify people who die or were hospitalized is available to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but is not being released.

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

 

No Evidence Soccer Players Are Keeling Over From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Let’s take a closer look at the various claims in the article, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Pretty Common

The first reports of soccer players keeling over on the field did not start only “in the summer of 2021”. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a medical emergency that has been documented for as long as medical records exist.

And SCA is actually pretty common. The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

In addition, the COVID-19 vaccines were first prioritised towards vulnerable people, and not athletes. So some athletes who collapsed on the field in the summer of 2021, like Christian Eriksen, were actually unvaccinated!

The incidence of SCA also did not increase after the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced, which squashes the claim that vaccines are causing a spike in sudden cardiac arrest deaths.

As this Peterson-KFF chart shows, the incidence of heart disease as well as other causes of death in the United States remained relatively stable during the pandemic. Only deaths from COVID-19 varied significantly during that time.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Causes Far More Myocarditis Than Vaccines!

It is true that younger males are more likely than other segments of the population to develop myocarditis after taking COVID-19 vaccines based on mRNA technology. However, what you may not know is that – the risk of developing myocarditis is much, much higher with COVID-19 infections!

The large SAFECOVAC study showed that the risk of developing vaccine myocarditis is less than 1 in a million doses. On the other hand, the study data showed that the risk of developing myocarditis after a COVID-19 infection is hundreds of times higher than getting 3 doses of any COVID-19 vaccine!

If you are worried about myocarditis, you should definitely want to AVOID getting infected with COVID-19.

Recommended : SAFECOVAC: Vaccine Myocarditis Risk Less Than 1 In Million!

3x Pfizer 2.7 +1.8x +1.3x Baseline
3x AstraZeneca 2.1 +1.4x Baseline -0.2x
3x Sinovac 1.5 Baseline -0.3x -0.4x

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Vaccines Continue To Be Monitored

COVID-19 vaccines received their Emergency Use Authorisations (EUA) in December 2020 through early 2021, after passing large Phase 3 clinical trials. Even then, they continue to be monitored by their manufacturers, and health authorities across the world.

Even after the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines received their full FDA approval on 23 August 2021, and 31 January 2022 respectively, they continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

After three years of safety monitoring and billions of doses administered, COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be largely safe and effective. There is zero evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines are nefariously targeting soccer players, and “assassinating” them while they play on the field.

Fact #4 : Viruses Multiply, Vaccines Won’t

The claim that COVID-19 vaccines produce more spike proteins than an actual COVID-19 virus infection is illogical. After all, viruses multiply, while the vaccines won’t.

Even if we simply look at the mRNA vaccines alone, they contain a limited number of mRNA instructions that encode for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The mRNA instructions enter a limited number of cells, which then produce and display those spike proteins on their surfaces, to trigger our immune system.

If you are infected by the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus though, it quickly hijacks your cells to produce millions of copies – each covered with spike proteins, which then infect even more cells, in an ever-expanding chain reaction.

Until your immune system learns to stop and defeat the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it will keep producing millions and millions of viruses that will circulate through your body, delivering those nasty spike proteins everywhere.

So if you are really worried about the spike protein, you should really get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #5 : No Evidence SARS-CoV-2 Is A Bioweapon

There is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was developed as a bioweapon. Neither is there any evidence that the spike protein was man-made, or “engineered to be toxic”.

For one thing – SARS-CoV-2 isn’t virulent enough to serve as a bioweapon. There are far more potent bioweapons that have already been tested in the past that make this coronavirus look puny.

COVID-19 also disproportionately targets the elderly and the vulnerable, instead of the “fighting age” population. A good bioweapon would do the opposite.

The Chinese also did not have any antidote at hand to deal with COVID-19, when it first broke out in Wuhan.

Did Tom Lockyer Collapse From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did Tom Lockyer collapse during a Premiere League match from cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Tom Lockyer Collapsed From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

Truth : Tom Lockyer Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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-vaccine activists…

Fact #1 : Tom Lockyer Suffered A Cardiac Arrest

Tom Lockyer (born Thomas Alun Lockyer on 3 December 1994) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays for Luton Town – a Premiere League soccer club.

On 16 December 2023, Luton Town was playing against Bournemouth, when Tom Lockyer suddenly collapsed on the pitch during the second half, after suffering a cardiac arrest.

He was responsive, but was stretchered off the field, and taken to a hospital. Luton Town later announced that Lockyer was “stable and currently undergoing further tests“.

Fact #2 : Tom Lockyer Was Discharged With An ICD

On Thursday, 21 December 2023, Luton Town announced that Tom Lockyer was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, after getting an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) fitted.

We are thankful to report that our captain Tom Lockyer has now begun a period of rehabilitation from the comfort of his own home after he was discharged from hospital on Wednesday.

This encouraging news follows a successful procedure that took place on Tuesday whereby Tom had an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) device fitted to prevent a repeat of Saturday’s incident.

The clinical advice Tom and the Club has taken since the Championship play-off final has been conducted by the most renowned cardiologists, who have been involved at every step, along with a team of supporting multi-disciplinary consultants.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : Tom Lockyer Collapsed In May For Different Reason

This isn’t the first time Tom Lockyer collapsed while playing on the pitch. On 27 May 2023, he collapsed just 12 minutes into a game against Coventry City.

He was treated by the medical team, and was conscious when he was taken off the field, and taken to a hospital for further tests. Eventually, he was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, and underwent ablative surgery.

His most recent collapse in December 2023 though has nothing to do with his prior heart condition. This was confirmed by his club, Luton Town:

We can now confirm that the tests taken this week had revealed that the issue Tom experienced on Saturday was different to the atrial fibrillation he suffered in May.

Needless to say – no COVID-19 vaccine is known to cause atrial fibrillation, or any other cardiac electrical conditions.

Fact #4 : Athletes Are At Higher Risk Of Cardiac Arrest

While student athletes appears to be the epitome of healthy young people, many are at risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

In fact, studies show that sudden cardiac arrest is the leading medical cause of death in young athletes. On average, about 2,000 young people in the United States (less than 24 years old) die from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and many do not have previously-known heart disease.

That’s why many states in the United States enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #5 : Unknown If Tom Lockyer Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Tom Lockyer was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Tom Lockyer was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom.

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.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Tom Lockyer was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Tom Lockyer was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two years ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered 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 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.

Truth : Reed Ryan Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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-vaccine activists…

Fact #1 : Reed Ryan Suffered A Cardiac Arrest

Reed Ryan (born on 27 December 2000) was a senior defensive linesman at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

While training in a weight room on Tuesday, 21 November 2023, Reed suddenly went into a cardiac arrest. School officials managed to resuscitate him, and he was rushed to the ICU at the St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth.

Tragically, Reed Ryan never recovered, and passed away in the ICU a week later – on Tuesday, 28 November 2023.

Fact #2 : Reed Ryan Died From A Genetic Heart Condition

While some people started claiming that Reed Ryan somehow died from the COVID-19 vaccine, they never actually provided any evidence to tie his death to the vaccines.

Perhaps knowing that his death would be misused by people with ulterior motive, Reed Ryan’s family revealed his cause of death.

In an obituary that was released on November 29, his family revealed that Ryan Reed died from “a cardiac arrest” caused by “an undetected genetic heart condition” and a “large” heart (cardiomegaly).

Reed went into cardiac arrest on November 21st following a football team workout in the weight-room doing what he loved. This was the result of an undetected genetic heart condition and a large, loving heart.

The athletic training team was tremendous in their efforts to immediately initiate CPR and regain his pulse. The ICU hospital staff at St. Mary’s-Duluth were amazing in doing everything possible for him.

We want to especially thank Jessa, Hannah, Dawn, Sabrina, and Abbi, his teammates, the UMD coaching staff and administration–especially Forrest Karr and Coach Weise.

Reed Ryan is survived by his parents, Erin and Stephanie, his sister Robyn, and his brother Chase (Paige) Parr.

His family also stated that Reed has donated several of his organs, and his death will be part of an NCAA research study to help prevent the same condition from happening to other athletes.

Did Raphael Dwamena Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did football star Raphael Dwamena collapse and die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?!

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

 

Claim : Raphael Dwamena Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Raphael Dwamena died suddenly at just 28 years of age, some people immediately suggested that the former LaLiga star and international striker was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Recommended : FDA Refused To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

 

No Evidence Raphael Dwamena Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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 : Raphael Dwamena Apparently Suffered Cardiac Arrest

Raphael Dwamena (born on 12 September 1995) was a Ghanaian professional footballer who won nine caps for Ghana between 2017 and 2018, and played internationally as a striker.

On Saturday, 11 November 2023, Raphael Dwamena was playing in an Albanian Superliga match between FK Egnatia and Partizani, when he suddenly collapsed in the 23rd minute of the first half.

Dwamena was stretchered off the field, but despite attempts to resuscitate him, was pronounced dead on the way to the Kavajë Hospital. He was only 28 years old when he died.

Although an official cause of death was not announced, the media has so far reported that he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.

Fact #2 : Raphael Dwamena Had History Of Heart Problem

In 2017, Raphael Dwamena was on the verge of signing with Brighton & Hove Albion FC, when he was diagnosed with a ventricular arrhythmia. That led the club to cancel his transfer from FC Zurich.

In 2019, Real Zaragoza terminated his contract while he was on loan from Levante, due to his health problems.

In 2020, Vejle Boldklub also terminated its loan of Raphael Dwamena due to his heart problems. That year, he was finally fitted with an implantable cardiovascular-defibrillator (ICD), which would later save his life at least once. Even though he finally had an ICD implanted, he was also advised to quit professional football.

In 2021, Raphael Dwamena lost his contract with Austrian club FC Blau-Weiss Linz, again due to his heart problems. At that time, he collapsed on the field during a game. Fortunately, his ICD shocked him back to life, but his career in Austria was over.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : Raphael Dwamena Apparently Removed His ICD

On 14 November 2023, Dr. Antonio Asso told the Spanish outlet, Sport, that Dwamena had his defibrillator removed a year before he collapsed and died suddenly on the field.

He died as a result of a respectable personal decision. But if the defibrillator had not been explanted, Raphael would still be alive.

Dr. Asso was Dwamena’s cardiologist, who convinced him to implant the defibrillator in the first place. He also advised him to quit professional football.

We managed to convince him of the imperative need to implant a defibrillator to at least guarantee his life, at the same time that we advised against practicing professional sports.

A couple of years ago they told me that the defibrillator had saved his life when he had a malignant arrhythmia that had been correctly treated automatically by the device. We had subsequently lost contact. 

From that moment on, I was aware that one day the tragedy that occurred on Saturday on a soccer field in Albania would happen.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Raphael Dwamena Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Raphael Dwamena was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Raphael Dwamena was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom. European football clubs never had a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

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.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Raphael Dwamena was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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.

Matt Ulrich : CTE + A Gun May Have Caused His Death!

Super Bowl champion Matt Ulrich likely suffered from CTE, and his death may have been from a self-inflicted gun shot!

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

 

Matt Ulrich : People Claim Vaccine Caused His Death!

Right after news broke that Matt Ulrich died suddenly at just 41 years of age, some people immediately suggested that COVID-19 vaccines caused the death of the former Super Bowl champion!

Matt Ulrich : CTE + A Gun May Have Caused His Death!

Sadly, anti-vaccine activists now automatically blame all sudden deaths on the COVID-19 vaccine, especially if the actual cause of death has not been revealed.

In many cases, the actual cause of death is later revealed to be something else altogether, like these examples:

Which brings us to Matt Ulrich. Born Matthew James Ulrich on 30 December 1981, he was a former offensive guard for the Indianapolis Colts, who retired in 2007 after playing two seasons with them.

Matt Ulrich’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

On Wednesday, 8 November 2023, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay revealed on X (formerly Twitter) that Matt Ulrich had died:

I am heartbroken to hear of the passing of Matt Ulrich. Matt was with us only two seasons, but left his mark on many. Great guy, I hear he was a great dad—and he was a Super Bowl champ. My prayers to his family. 🙏

Matt Ulrich was 41 years old when he died, and survived by his wife, Alison Ulrich, and their four sons – Gunther, Dalton, Bowden, and Thoreau. Alison – Matt Ulrich’s widow, later posted a tribute to her husband:

As many of you know, one of a kind Matt has passed away and is in a better place.

Matt, we love you so much. You are profoundly missed. We all want you back for just one more day. One more hug. One more kiss. One more laugh. One more joke. One more wrestle with the boys. It seems impossible to do this life without you. 

Please pray for peace and comfort for the boys. They have lost their greatest fan, coach and friend.

I don’t have details on a service yet but will post here when I do. Thank you to everyone for reaching out and offering help. We appreciate it and are surrounded in love.

Neither Jim Irsay, not Alison Ulrich, revealed how Matt Ulrich died. So, we do NOT know Matt Ulrich’s cause of death. He could have died from suicide, a heart attack, a car accident, cardiac arrest, or even a fall! There is no indication, never mind evidence, that he died from some kind of COVID-19 vaccine injury.

Until and unless his family (or the authorities) reveal his cause of death, anyone who tells you that Matt Ulrich died from this or that cause of death is likely lying to you.

Matt Ulrich Was Likely Suffering From CTE

On 10 November 2023, the Dokken Nelson Funeral Service, which is handling his funeral in Bozeman, released an obituary for Matt Ulrich.

In that obituary, Dokken Nelson confirmed that Matt Ulrich died on 5 November 2023, and that Matt Ulrich had “a long-standing interest in the neurodegenerative disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE”.

The obituary further stated that his family was donating some of his brain tissue to help “further the understanding of this disease”. That suggests that Matt Ulrich was suffering from CTE.

He served on the Advisory Board of Harvard Medical School’s Football Health Study, a long-term research effort into NFL players’ health. He had a long-standing interest in the neurodegenerative disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, and his family has donated some of his brain tissue as a way to further the understanding of this disease.

Matt Ulrich Allegedly Died By Gun Suicide

On 9 November 2023, a man who claimed to be his cousin – Rich Bianco, refuted claims that Matt Ulrich died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

#MattUlrich Ex NFL Super Bowl Lineman is dead at 41. He’s my cousin and he didn’t die from the shot like a lot of people are saying. Please stop the rumors

Will miss you Matt #NFL #Colts

Rich further stated that there was a firearm involved in his death, suggesting that Matt Ulrich died by gun suicide.

There was a firearm. Lets see what the police say.

To be clear – his family did not issue a statement saying that Matt Ulrich died from a self-inflicted gun shot, triggered by CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). They are likely and understandably grieving from their loss. But all evidence so far points to that conclusion, and frankly, that’s more than we – the public – deserve to know.

Unfortunately, it is no longer possible for families to grieve in peace for their loved ones taken too early. Instead, family members are being forced to publicly reveal or hint at their actual cause of death, just to stop people from making baseless claims.

No Evidence Matt Ulrich Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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 : Matt Ulrich’s Cause Of Death Still Unknown

Matt Ulrich (born Matthew James Ulrich on 30 December 1981) was a former offensive guard for the Indianapolis Colts, who retired in 2007 after playing two seasons with them.

On Wednesday, 8 November 2023, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay revealed on X (formerly Twitter) that Matt Ulrich had died:

I am heartbroken to hear of the passing of Matt Ulrich. Matt was with us only two seasons, but left his mark on many. Great guy, I hear he was a great dad—and he was a Super Bowl champ. My prayers to his family. 🙏

Irsay did not reveal when exactly Matt Ulrich died, or the circumstances behind his death. Ulrich was 41 years old when he died, and survived by his wife, Alison Ulrich, and their four sons.

Fact #2 : Alison Ulrich Did Not Reveal His Cause Of Death

Alison – Matt Ulrich’s widow, later posted a tribute to her husband, but she too did not mention when he died, or his cause of death.

As many of you know, one of a kind Matt has passed away and is in a better place.

Matt, we love you so much. You are profoundly missed. We all want you back for just one more day. One more hug. One more kiss. One more laugh. One more joke. One more wrestle with the boys. It seems impossible to do this life without you.

Until and unless his family (or the authorities) reveal his cause of death, anyone who tells you that Matt Ulrich died from this or that cause of death is likely lying to you.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : Matt Ulrich Likely Suffered From CTE

On 10 November 2023, the Dokken Nelson Funeral Service, which is handling his funeral in Bozeman, released an obituary for Matt Ulrich.

In that obituary, Dokken Nelson confirmed that Matt Ulrich died on 5 November 2023, and that Matt Ulrich had “a long-standing interest in the neurodegenerative disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE”.

The obituary further stated that his family was donating some of his brain tissue to help “further the understanding of this disease”. That suggests that Matt Ulrich was suffering from CTE.

He had a long-standing interest in the neurodegenerative disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, and his family has donated some of his brain tissue as a way to further the understanding of this disease.

Fact #4 : Cousin Refuted Vaccine Death Claim

On 9 November 2023, a man who claimed to be his cousin – Rich Bianco, refuted claims that Matt Ulrich died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

#MattUlrich Ex NFL Super Bowl Lineman is dead at 41. He’s my cousin and he didn’t die from the shot like a lot of people are saying. Please stop the rumors

Will miss you Matt #NFL #Colts

Fact #5 : Cousin Said A Firearm Was Involved

Rich Bianco further stated that there was a firearm involved in his death, suggesting that Matt Ulrich died by gun suicide.

There was a firearm. Lets see what the police say.

Regardless of whether Matt Ulrich committed suicide by gun, or that firearm accidentally discharged and killed him, what’s certain is that – the COVID-19 vaccine didn’t pull the trigger.

Recommended : 1 In 4 Americans Know Someone Who Died From Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : Unknown If Matt Ulrich Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Matt Ullrich was fully-vaccinated and twice boosted, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Matt Ulrich was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because he retired from the NFL in 2007, and 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.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Matt Ulrich was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Matt Ulrich was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more two years ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered 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 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.

Duangphet Phromthep : Why He Died Suddenly In UK!

Duangphet Phromthep, the former captain of the football team that was rescued from a flooded Thai cave, died suddenly in the United Kingdom.

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

Updated @ 2023-11-04 : Added the official cause of death for Duangphet Phromthep
Originally posted @ 2023-02-16

Claim : Duangphet Phromthep Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Duangphet Phromthep died suddenly, people immediately claimed that the 17 year-old former captain of the Wild Boars football team that was rescued from a flooded Thai cave died from vaccine SADS!

Another Sudden cardiac arrest with unknown cause especially in the young— after Covid infection/Covid vaccine era — spooky

Now offical that taking the shitty mRNA jab is more dangerous than being trapped a mile underground in a flooded cave. #DuangpetchPromthep

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

 

Truth : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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…

Fact #1 : Duangphet Phromthep Was Found Unconscious In His Dorm

Duangphet Phromthep was the 13 year-old captain of the Wild Boards (Moo Pa) football team that was rescued two weeks after a flash flood trapped them in a Thai cave on 23 June 2018.

Also known as Dom and Nong Dom, Duangphet Phromthep went to Chiang Mai to study sports, and received a scholarship to study at the Brooke House College Football Academy in Leicester, England, last year.

A teacher found Dom unconscious in his dorm on Sunday, 12 February 2023, and called the police. A Leicestershire police spokesperson confirmed this, stating:

Shortly before 1pm on Sunday, police were called to a boarding school in Leicester Road, Market Harborough by the East Midlands Ambulance Service.

The call concerned the welfare of a pupil. The pupil – a 17-year-old boy – was taken to hospital. He has since died.

Duangphet Phromthep was then sent to the Kettering General Hospital. However, he was unresponsive and died on Tuesday, 14 February, 2023. Ian Smith, the principal at Brooke House college released this statement:

This event has left our college community deeply saddened and shaken. We unite in grief with all of Dom’s family, friends, former teammates and those involved in all parts of his life, as well as everyone affected in any way by this loss in Thailand and throughout the college’s global family.

The college is liaising with statutory authorities and the Royal Thai embassy in London, and dedicating all resources to assist our student body, as they as young people process Dom’s passing. Beyond that, we are unable to comment further at this time and would ask for privacy and compassion as we continue to support the students in our care at this time, drawing on the kindness and assistance of the Market Harborough community.

Fact #2 : Duangphet Phromthep Allegedly Had A Head Injury

Claims that Duangphet Phromthep died from a cardiac arrest, or in his sleep from SADS, appear to be completely unfounded.

According to Supatpong Methigo – a Buddhist monk who taught him earlier, Duangphet’s grandmother told him he had died, after hitting his head in an accident.

Phra Khu Prayut Jetiyanukarn, abbot of Wat Phra That Doi Wao in Chiang Rai, said Duangphet’sthat  mother phoned him around 6 AM and told him that her son had died. The abbot said according to initial reports, there was an accident, a fall, and Duangphet was injured. He was admitted to the hospital, and put on a ventilator, but later died.

Other relatives told Thai reporters that they were informed that Duangphet had been injured in an accident that led to his death, and that details would be given by his football club in England.

Fact #3 : Duangphet Phromthep’s Death Was Not Suspicious

The cause of death for Duangphet Phromthep was initially not officially confirmed, but the Leicestershire police said that his death was not suspicious, and a file would be prepared for the coroner.

The boy’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

Fact #4 : Duangphet Phromthep Died From Suicide

On 4 October 2023, an inquest into Duangphet’s death was held at the Leicester Coroner’s Court. Professor Catherine Mason, the senior coroner for Leicester city and South Leicestershire, recorded a conclusion of suicide.

She said that Duangphet “was not known to mental health services, and it is not known why he took the actions that he did“, so “it could not have been foreseen or prevented“. She also stated that the “police investigation has found no evidence of third-party involvement or suspicious circumstances“.

The boy’s death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

It may seem obvious now, but I have to point out that Duangphet Phromthep most definitely did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect, as claimed or suggested by many anti-vaccine proponents.

Recommended : Hunter Brown : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine SADS!

Fact #5 : UK Never Had A Vaccine Mandate For Travellers

The United Kingdom never instituted a vaccine mandate for travellers. Travellers were required to test before flying to the UK, and quarantine on arrival.

The testing requirement was only lifted on 11 February 2022 for fully-vaccinated travellers. Even so, travellers who were not fully-vaccinated could still continue to travel to the UK. They just had to undergo a pre-departure COVID-19 test, and a PCR test on the day of arrival, or the next day.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Duangphet Phromthep Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Duangphet Phromthep was ever 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 Thailand, or the United Kingdom.

Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Duangphet Phromthep was fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you. For certain – he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine are often proven false. Here are some other examples:

Did Damien Harris Collapse From Vaccine Injury?!

Did Buffalo Bills running back Damien Harris just collapse on the field from a COVID-19 vaccine injury?!

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

 

Claim : Damien Harris Collapsed From Vaccine Injury!

Right after news broke that Damien Harris collapsed during a game, and was taken off-field in an ambulance, some people immediately suggested that the Buffalo Bills running back just suffered a COVID-19 vaccine injury!

DiedSuddenly : Damar Hamlin watches Bills teammate Damien Harris on the ground in the latest terrible NFL injury. He was carted off.

Damar Hamlin and now Damien Harris have both suffered vaccine injuries on the field.

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

 

Truth : Damien Harris Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Injury!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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 : Damien Harris Was Conscious + Aware

On Sunday night, October 15, 2023, the Buffalo Bills faced off against the New York Giants at the Highmark Stadium.

During that game, Damien Harris was tackled by linebacker Bobby Okereke, with Harris’ helmet hitting Okereke squarely on his left shoulder. After that tackle though, Harris did not get up.

When he laid on the turf, medical staff and Buffalo Bill trainers rushed to attend to him. Unlike Damar Hamlin (who was watching the game), Damien Harris did not require CPR and remained conscious.

He was eventually immobilised and loaded on an ambulance. He even gave a thumbs up before he was placed in the ambulance.

Fact #2 : Damien Harris Suffered A Neck Injury

Damien Harris did not suffer any vaccine-induced cardiac arrest or myocarditis, as some people are claiming / suggesting. He suffered a neck injury after he slammed hard into Bobby Okereke during the game.

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott later said that initial tests indicated that Damien Harris’ injury was not as serious as they may have thought.

It’s my understanding he has full movement. Fortunate that he is seemingly heading in a good direction, with the reports we are getting. So I am very thankful to God for that.

To be clear – Damien Harris suffered a neck injury from a hard hit to his head. It was most certainly not caused by any “COVID-19 vaccine injury”.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Damien Harries Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Damien Harris was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

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.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Damien Harris was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Damien Harris was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses over two years ago!

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

Truth : Patriots Fan Dale Mooney Did Not Die From COVID-19 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 : Dale Mooney Died After Being Punched

On Sunday night, 17 September 2023, 53 year-old Dale Mooney, was watching the game between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins at the Gillette Stadium, when there was bickering between two sections of the 300 tier.

His friends who were watching the game with him said that a group of Dolphins fans “verbally taunted” Dale Mooney, who was standing at the aisle. He suddenly pushed his way into the other section to tussle with the group.

Some people tried to break up the altercation while others tried to get away. Mooney’s Patriots hat fell off just before he was punched twice in the face by a Dolphins fan. He then collapsed to the ground, and never got back up.

Police and fire personnel responded quickly to the scene at around 10:57 PM, and performed CPR on him for 10-15 minutes but could not revive him. Dale Mooney was taken to the Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, where he was pronounced dead.

One witness at the scene, Joseph Kilmartin, said that Dale Mooney fell unconscious after getting punched twice in his face.

They started tussling around for a few minutes. At one point another Dolphins fan walked over. He punched him three times, and the man just went out. It was pretty hard to watch.

Mooney’s widow, who was not at the game, later claimed that he was punched to death after being taunted by Dolphins fans. An eyewitness claimed that Dale Mooney and the Dolphins fan who punched him had been arguing for much of the game.

Obviously, the COVID-19 vaccine has no bearing on Dale Mooney’s death, as he only collapsed after being punched three time, with two hits right in his face.

Fact #2 : Dale Mooney Will Undergo An Autopsy

Norfolk County DA’s office has opened an investigation following “normal protocol”, with an autopsy due to take place in coming days.

A man in his 30s, who was described as having a salt and pepper beard was led away by the police. However, no arrest has been made over this incident, and no changes have been filed so far.

Until and unless the autopsy report reveals that the COVID-19 vaccines somehow caused his death, anyone who claims that Dale Mooney died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccines is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Dale Mooney Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Dale Mooney was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Dale Mooney was unvaccinated against COVID-19. 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.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Dale Mooney was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #4 : 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 death or tragedy…

Did KJ Hamler Get Pericarditis From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Was Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler benched after developing pericarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : KJ Hamler Developed Pericarditis From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that KJ Hamler was benched after a pericarditis diagnosis, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Denver Broncos wide receiver developed pericarditis from the COVID-19 vaccine doses he received!

Alex Berenson : A Covid vaccine success story in three acts

Get jabbed
Get Covid
Get pericarditis

Safe AND effective

Hope you recover quickly, @Kj_hamler

DC Draino : There are few things more evil than forcing an NFL player to be vaccinated against his will and then cutting him from the team when he develops deadly heart problems from the side effects

I hope KJ Hamler sues the NFL and Denver Broncos into bankruptcy

Some young people survive vaccine injury – 13 cases that did!

Brandon Taylor Moore : #Bronco’s KJ Hamler announces that he has been diagnosed with #pericarditis – which is medical speak for “I took the vaccine & it 🤬’d up my heart ❤️.”

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

 

No Evidence KJ Hamler Developed Pericarditis From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete 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 : KJ Hamler Has Mild Pericarditis

KJ Hamler (born Kahlee Jacoby Hamler on July 8, 1999) is a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos who made his NFL debut in the 2020 season.

On Monday, 31 July 2023, KJ Hamler announced that he was diagnosed with mild pericarditis, after suffering some chest pains while working out.

He pointed out that he feels great physically, but has to take a break to treat the pericarditis. He is reportedly expected to miss weeks, not months, due to this pericarditis diagnosis.

After feeling some chest pains while working out on the break before camp started, I got everything checked out and was diagnosed with mild heart irritation, called pericarditis. I’ve got a great treatment plan with medicine and am taking a quick break to get this all taken care of so I can get back to doing what I love.

I will be back on the field—better and stronger than ever—as soon as possible this season! I feel great physically and this is very frustrating for me to deal with. I know most of you have heard or know of my story and these past few years what I’ve been going through on and off the field.

I’m so grateful for my teammates & coaches. Appreciate the support from the Broncos Country and encouragement I have been receiving. This is something to bring awareness to anybody. So anyone with chest pains please get checked out by your doctor!

Fact #2 : Broncos Waived KJ Hamler With NFI

In a sign that KJ Hamler’s pericarditis is mild and will resolve quickly, the Denver Broncos are reportedly waiving him on a non-football illness (NFI) designation.

This is a procedural move which allows KJ Hamler to return in the 2023 season. If they placed him on reserve, or the non-football injury list instead, he could end up not playing for the entire season.

KJ Hamler had only just recovered from surgery to treat a torn pectoral muscle he sustained in March while training on his own in the offseason.

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #3 : Pericarditis Is Most Commonly Caused By Infections

Pericarditis is the inflammation of the pericardium – the fibrous sac covering the heart. Most people only know it as a known but rare side effect of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna.

What you may not know is that pericarditis is most commonly caused by viral infections, followed by bacterial infections (commonly tuberculosis), heart attack, autoimmune diseases, and chest trauma.

And yes – COVID-19 infections can cause pericarditis, and acute pericarditis is a major clinical manifestation of long COVID syndrome.

Fact #4 : Pericarditis Existed Long Before COVID-19 Vaccines

In addition – people have suffered from pericarditis long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented. On average, about 40 per 100,000 people develop pericarditis every year.

An August 2022 study showed that an average of 125,209 patients every year were diagnosed with pericarditis in the United States from 2007 to 2016. Males between the ages of 20 and 50 – like KJ Hamler – are most commonly affected.

Fact #5 : KJ Hamler Was Fully-Vaccinated Two Years Ago!

It is interesting to note that when people share screenshots showing that KJ Hamler was fully-vaccinated, they crop out the date. And it’s easy to see why.

KJ Hamler was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, receiving his second dose in the last week of July 2021 – TWO YEARS ago!

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

KJ Hamler cannot possibly have suffered 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 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.

Recommended : Did Joesthetics / Jo Lindner Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #7 : KJ Hamler Got Infected With COVID-19

KJ Hamler tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, August 3, 2021. That was just after he received his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

While many anti-vaccination activists are saying that this proves that the vaccine isn’t effective, the truth is you need to wait about 14 days for your body to develop the necessary antibodies after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

In fact, KJ Hamler pointed out to reporters back in August 2021 that he was not yet 14 days clear of the second shot.

I should also point out that the COVID-19 vaccines are not designed to block infections. They were designed to prevent you from developing severe COVID-19, or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #8 : 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!

Did Cedric Roussel Die Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did former Premier League footballer Cedric Roussel die suddenly from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Cedric Roussel Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Cedric Roussel died suddenly while sitting on a terrace in Mons, some people immediately claimed that the former Premier League footballer died from a heart attack caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

RIP CEDRIC!! ANOTHER VACCINE DEATH VICTIM!! 💉 #wwfc

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

 

No Evidence Cedric Roussel Died From COVID-19 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 : Cedric Roussel Died From Heart Attack / Cardiac Arrest

Cedric Roussel (born 6 January 1978) was a Belgian professional footballer who played in the Premier League with Coventry City in 1999, and the Belgium national team in 2003. He retired in February 2015 at the age of 37, and became a real estate agent.

On 24 June 2023, Cedric Roussel was sitting on a terrace at a marketplace in Mons, Belgium, when he suddenly collapsed. Despite the best efforts of paramedics who rushed to the scene, they were unable to revive him.

Initial reports say that Cedric Roussel died from a sudden cardiac arrest, but later reports say that he died from a heart attack.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Cedric Roussel Had Myocarditis

There is no evidence that Cedric Roussel was suffering from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

In fact, if he suffered from myocarditis, Cedric Roussel would not be casually sitting on a terrace enjoying a day out in Mons. He would have been experiencing chest pain and/or shortness of breath.

Fact #3 : Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis Affects Mainly Young Adults

Vaccine-induced myocarditis is not only rare, it occurs mainly in young adults and adolescent males 12 to 39 years in age. Cedric Roussel was 45 years old when he died.

To help you understand that, I created this table to show you the risk of vaccine-induced myocarditis for different age groups.

Note : Baseline refers to the typical number of myocarditis cases expected in the unvaccinated population.

Age Group Male Rate
(per million doses)
Baseline
(per million doses)
12-17 32.4 2.0
18-24 30.7 1.8
25-29 12.2 1.9
30-39 6.9 1.9
40-49 3.5 1.9
50-64 1.9 1.9

Read more : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #4 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Common

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many countries enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Cedric Roussel Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Cedric Roussel was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

Some anti-vaccination activists are sharing a photo alleging to show Cedric Roussel getting a COVID-19 vaccine. That’s actually a photo of a different Cedric Roussel!

This Cedric Roussel who posted a photo of himself getting the COVID-19 vaccine is actually a 5o year-old French politician and former Member of Parliament who served in its Committee on Cultural Affairs and Education.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Cedric Roussel the footballer died from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

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

Even if Cedric Roussel was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have been fully-vaccinated more than two years before his death!

He cannot possibly have suffered 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 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.

Did ESPN director Kyle Brown die from vaccine SADS?!

Did ESPN director Kyle Brown just collapsed and died suddenly at a baseball game from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?!

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

 

Claim : ESPN Director Kyle Brown Died From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Kyle Brown died suddenly in his sleep, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 42 year-old ESPN director was a victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Died Suddenly : These kind of deaths are becoming all too common. #diedsuddenly

Another #vax victim ESPN DIRECTOR KYLE BROWN DIES SUDDENLY AT 42 !

On his 2nd shot early on but #ESPN had strict #vaccine mandates & got sued by fired workers who refused so I can’t blame a guy with young kids who needed his job. #DiedSuddenly

What’s sad is nobody will even question whether or not it was the vaccine. ESPN – you mandated the shots. It’s time to have a public health announcement that these shots were/are dangerous. We have to face reality and try to save people. RIP Kyle Brown

No Evidence ESPN Director Kyle Brown Died From Vaccine SADS!

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 : Kyle Brown’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

ESPN director Kyle Brown (born Kyle Matthew Brown) suffered a “medical emergency” at an NCAA (National Collegiate Athletics Association) regional tournament in North Carolina on Saturday, June 10, 2023.

The super regional game, between Alabama and Wake Forest was delayed by two hours due to the “non game-related medical event“. Hours later, ESPN revealed that Kyle Brown, sadly, passed away.

On Saturday morning, our beloved ESPN director Kyle Brown suffered a medical emergency and tragically passed away at the NCAA super regionals in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

An 18-year ESPN employee, Kyle was a deeply admired member of our production team, and highly accomplished, having captured two sports Emmy awards while working a multitude of sports, from baseball and basketball, to Monday night football and college football.

A former Ohio State pitcher, Kyle cherished the opportunities to have a career in sports. His ESPN family wishes to extend our deepest condolences and full support to Kyle’s loved ones, including his wife, Megan, their four children – Makayla, Carson, Camden and Madden, and their beloved dog, Rookie.

He was 42 years old. Kyle will be greatly missed.

Kyle Brown’s medical emergency, and his cause of death, has not been revealed. Until and unless his family, or ESPN, or the North Carolina Chief Medical Examiner, reveals the nature and cause of death, anyone who tells you that Kyle Brown died from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : There Are 3 Kyle Browns Associated With ESPN

In their rush to promote these anti-vaccine claims, or simply to capitalise off the news that someone notable died, some people are apparently posting photos of the wrong Kyle Brown.

From what I can surmise, there are at least three people called Kyle Brown who are, or were, associated with ESPN:

  • Kyle Emanuel Brown, a radio host with ESPN Radio 1700AM out of San Diego, California
  • Kyle Matthew Brown, the ESPN director from Ohio
  • Kyle Brown, program director of 710 ESPN in Seattle, which was rebranded to Seattle Sports in 2022

Fact #3 : Kyle M. Brown Was Likely Fully-Vaccinated

We cannot be completely sure, but Kyle M. Brown was likely fully-vaccinated by April 2021, when he posted this on his Twitter account:

2nd shot, done!

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Assuming Kyle M. Brown was fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in April 2021 – that would have been 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.

No Evidence Malik Gant Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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…

Fact #1 : Malik Gant’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

Malik Gant (born on May 29, 1997) was an American football player who signed twice with the New England Patriots in May 2019, and in August 2021. Before that, he played at Marshall University from 2015-2018.

On Thursday, May 25, 2023, Malik Gant was found deceased in Miami, Florida. However, the circumstances behind his sudden death is unknown. The Gant family released this statement two weeks later, on Jun 7:

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of our beloved family member, Malik Gant. Malik was found deceased on May 25, 2023, in Miami, Florida. We are devastated by this unimaginable loss and are grieving deeply.

Malik was a remarkable individual who touched the lives of many with his kindness, charisma, and unwavering spirit. He will be remembered as a loving son, a cherished brother, a devoted grandson, a valued teammate, and a dear friend to countless individuals. His memory will forever live on in our hearts.

During this difficult time, we would like to express our sincere gratitude for the outpouring of support, prayers, and condolences we are receiving from our community, friends, and loved ones. Your kindness and compassion provide us with strength and comfort. In the coming days, we understand that many of you would like to pay your respects and honor Malik’s memory. Information on funeral services and arrangements will be shared once they become available.

Once again, we thank you for your support. Please keep Malik and our family in your thoughts and prayers as we navigate through this profound loss.

Malik’s mother, Sirraya Gant, has since posted four more times on her son’s death, but never once mentioning the COVID-19 vaccine, or blaming it for her son’s death.

Neither his family, not the Florida authorities, mentioned his cause of death, so Malik Gant could have died suddenly from any number of reasons – an accident, a fall, gun violence, suicide, drug abuse, sudden cardiac arrest, etc.

Until and unless his family reveals the cause of his sudden death, or the circumstances behind his death, anyone who claims that Malik Gant died from this or that cause of death is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Stephan Bonnar Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #4 : Unknown If Malik Gant Was Vaccinated

Malik Gant has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

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, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Malik Gant suffered a COVID-19 vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

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

Even if Malik Gant was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of her doses more than a year earlier.

He cannot possibly have died suddenly 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.

Fact #1 : Tom Hanks Is Still Alive + Well!

Tom Hanks is still very much alive and well, as of May 16, 2023, when his interview on The Adam Buxton podcast was released. In that interview, he said that AI may allow him to continue appearing in movies even after he dies.

I can tell you that there is discussions going on in all of the guilds, all of the agencies, and all of the legal firms in order to come up with the legal ramifications of my face and my voice and everybody else’s being our intellectual property.

What is a bona fide possibility right now is, if I wanted to, I could get together and pitch a series of seven movies that would star me in them in which I would be 32 years old from now until kingdom come.

Anybody can now recreate themselves at any age they are by way of AI or deep fake technology. I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on.

Of course, that podcast was recorded earlier – on April 18. But on the same day the podcast was released, Tom Hanks himself posted about his wife’s latest record with Emily Shackleton – I Loved You First.

Tom Hanks is also on a book tour, to promote his novel – The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece. On May 16, he was in Tulsa for a book signing and a Q&A session with his fans.

So yeah, Tom Hanks is very much alive, well, and healthy!

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported his death.

When Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, got infected with COVID-19, the worldwide media breathlessly reported on their condition – they were both fine.

No legitimate media outlet has reported that he died recently from any cause. Why should you believe random YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos?

Fact #3 : The Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of three examples used in many of these videos.

This photo was edited from a Getty Images stock photo of a funeral, to add a crying lady and other people, as well as a photo of Tom Hanks in a frame.

This photo of his funeral is also fake. This is actually a photo of Serbian folk singer, Šaban Šaulić, who died on February 17, 2019. His funeral was held on February 22, 2019.

The fake news creator flipped the photo, and superimposed a large and overly bright head of Sylvester Stallone together with a framed photo of Tom Hanks magically floating in front of him!

This funeral photo is really a stock photograph of a funeral that is available on the Unsplash website.

Fact #4 : This Video Is From Veep

This video that some people are sharing out is actually a video clip from the final scene of the comedy television series, Veep.

It shows Tom Hanks dying at the age of 88, after winning four Oscar awards and a statuette for Philadelphia 2.

Just in case you are wondering, Tom Hanks was born on July 9, 1956) and will only turn 88 in the year 2044. And the movie Philadelphia 2 does not exist.

Fact #5 : Tom Hanks Death Hoax Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Tom Hanks death hoax is, ironically, also being driven by a fake fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

Rumors of the actor’s alleged demise gained traction on Sunday after a ‘R.I.P. Tom Hanks’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the American actor’s passing:

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Tom Hanks Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Tom Hanks’ unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps whose celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Celine Dion, Simon Cowell, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Justin Bieber, Harrison Ford, Sylvester StalloneDolly Parton, Lucy Liu, Clint Eastwood, and Melanie Laurent.

He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Did Joe Biden Just Walk Away From Air Force Falcons?!

Did US President Joe Biden bizarrely walk away from the Air Force Falcons, before the football team could present him with a helmet and signed ball?!

 

Claim : Joe Biden Bizarrely Walks Away From Air Force Falcons!

People are sharing a Twitter video and post that appears to show US President Joe Biden suddenly walking away from the Air Force Falcons, before the football team could present him with a helmet and signed ball.

Sinnaig : 🇷🇺😂🤨 This guy “runs” the world…
Biden hosted the US Air Force Academy football team “Falcons” at the White House.
He was supposed to be presented with a ball signed by the team, a helmet and a football jersey. He only took the sweater and suddenly turned around and left…😂

In the video, a female officer gestures to President Biden, who pauses before turning around to walk away from the team with a football jersey, while two officers appear to be waiting to hand him a football and a helmet.

Why Joe Biden Walked Away From Air Force Falcons!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by pro-Russia activists, and promoted / shared by  the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and pro-CCP netizens, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : President Joe Biden Presented CIC Trophy To Air Force Falcons

First, let me just give you some context on what’s going on.

The video was recorded at around 2:40 PM on Friday, April 28, 2023 at the White House where President Joe Biden presented the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy to the Air Force Falcons.

Fact #2 : Air Force Falcons Presented Joe Biden With Ball + Helmet

Sinnaig falsely claimed that the President Joe Biden walked away before the Air Force Falcons presented him with a signed ball and a helmet, taking with him only a football jersey.

The truth is – the Air Force Falcons presented Joe Biden with all three items. This was specifically mentioned in the White House transcript of the event.

(The President is presented with an Air Force Falcons jersey, football, and helmet.)

Fact #3 : The Video Was Edited

The video is genuine, but edited to convey the impression that President Biden is a doddering old fool.

The fake news creator specifically cut out an earlier segment of the video so that it appears that Joe Biden walked away from the team before they presented him with the football and helmet.

In the original video (which I posted below), you can see Air Force Falcons coach Calhoun call on two Air Force captains to present the three items to President Biden.

Our two captains: Haaziq Daniels, quarterback, and — and running back Brad Roberts.  And, sir, they have a couple of small items here for you.

Captain Haaziq Daniels first hands Biden the jersey, which he holds up for a photo, before he gives him the signed football. Biden then mocks an attempt to throw it, saying “Go down, out, and down” to laughter from the crowd.

After handing the football back to Captain Daniels, he says “Where I’m going tonight, I may need that helmet.“, and turns to take the helmet from Captain Brad Roberts.

Before walking off, he turns towards the team, and says something to them. It is inaudible, but according to the White House transcript, this was what he said:

Well, thank you very much.  What a great, great honor.  I appreciate it very much.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

After that, he turns around and walks out of the room, carrying only the jersey. It wouldn’t be possible for him to hold onto all three items after all.

The two Air Force captains then places the football and helmet on the table, before taking a photo with General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Did Al-Nassr President Call Cristiano Ronaldo A Scam?!

Did former Al-Nassr president Musalli Al-Muammar say that the club was cheated by Cristiano Ronaldo, and called him a scam?!

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

 

Claim : Al-Nassr Got Cheated + Cristiano Ronaldo Is A Scam!

Here is the Music Mundial article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Recommended : Did Cristiano Ronaldo Just Die In Tragic Car Accident?!

 

Truth : Al-Nassr President Did Not Call Cristiano Ronaldo A Scam!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created by Music Mundial and other websites to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Fake Claim Originated With El Desmarque

The fake news appear to have originated with Spanish sports publication El Desmarque, and was quickly picked up by other websites.

It is odd why they posted it, because Al-Muammar’s statement reads like satire, particularly the part where he compared signing up Cristiano Ronaldo with getting two kebabs instead of the three he ordered.

Fact #2 : ArabiaNews50 Does Not Exist

ArabiaNews50 / ArabicNews50 / Arabia News 50 / Arabic News 50 – the news outlet that allegedly interviewed Al-Muammar does not exist!

Anyone who does a quick search online would quickly realise that, so it is very odd so many websites continue to propagate this claim. Wink wink, nod nod.

Fact #3 : Al-Nassr Called The Claim False

Al-Nassr’s press advisor Walid Al-Muhaidib vehemently denied that Al-Muammar made those comments, calling them “false”. He also pointed out that there was no such media outlet called Arabic News 50 / Arabia News 50.

The talk in the Spanish press that we felt cheated on the Ronaldo deal, based on the Arabia News 50 website, is false and incorrect. The press came up with his joke and thought it was true.

Tras revisar la información que contenía la versión original de esta noticia ElDesmarque.com ha confirmado que no era correcta. Procedemos a eliminarla y pedimos disculpas por el error.

Did Andrew Dodson Die On The Field From Vaccine?!

Did high school football player Andrew Dodson die suddenly on the field from a COVID-19 vaccine injury?!

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

 

Claim : Andrew Dodson Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine Injury!

Right after news broke that Andrew Dodson died suddenly on the field, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the high school football player was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Dr. James E. Olsson : KENTUCKY – High School Football Player DEAD at Practice…

“SUDDEN DEATH”… Andrew Dodson died on Monday… Was participating in a “normal football action”…

“You hear of all the concussions, helmet to helmet, from what we’re hearing that was not the case”…

William Makis MD : 17 year old high school football player Andrew Dodson died on April 3, 2023.

He “suffered an injury” during a football practice game last week – he was “participating in normal football action” Many unanswered questions.

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

 

Truth : Andrew Dodson Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine Injury!

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

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

Fact #1 : Andrew Dodson Did Not Die On The Field

First, let me just clarify the incident behind Andrew Dodson’s tragic death. The 17 year-old Kentucky high school football player collapsed on the field during the Pulaski County varsity football game on Friday, 31 March 2023.

He was taken to the Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital in Somerset, and underwent several surgeries. Unfortunately, he was ultimately pronounced dead early Monday morning, 3 April 2023.

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) confirmed his death in a statement posted on Facebook and Twitter.

No words can explain, justify or rationalize tragedies such as these. We only ask for peace and comfort to all around him.

His funeral was held on Thursday, April 6, and Andrew Dodson was later interred in the Somerset Cemetery.

Fact #2 : Andrew Dodson Died From A Head Injury

Andrew Dodson did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine injury. We know this because his father, Alan Dodson, shared how his son died from blunt force trauma.

During that Pulaski County varsity game, Andrew Dodson was tackled by another player, and he hit his head on the ground. Even though he was wearing a helmet, he suffered a severe brain injury, and ultimately died in the hospital.

It was not a violent hit or helmet-to-helmet. It was a simple, clean tackle. His head hit the turf, and Andrew suffered blunt-force trauma to the brain.

He had a major surgery to relieve the pressure and has never awakened. He has been fighting for his life on total life support.

His parents told news outlets that their son was injured during “a very routine play” during practice, and that “no one is to blame“.

Just to be clear – Andrew Dodson’s cause of death was blunt force trauma to his head, and not a COVID-19 vaccine injury. He died from an accident – a head injury during a football game, and not the vaccine!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Andrew Dodson Was Vaccinated

Andrew Dodson has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, and many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar who “died suddenly” were never vaccinated. So it is possible that Andrew Dodson was never vaccinated against COVID-19.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Andrew Dodson suffered a vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen that I looked into:

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

Why Utah State WR Josh Davis Suddenly Collapsed!

Did Utah State wide receiver Josh Davis suddenly collapsed on the field from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect?!

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

 

Claim : Utah State WR Josh Davis Suddenly Collapsed From Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Josh Davis collapsed on the field during practice, people immediately claimed that the Utah State wide receiver was injured by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Steve Kirsch : Have you ever seen so many cardiac arrests among young kids before in your life????

Truth : Josh Davis Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Side Effect!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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…

Fact #1 : Josh Davis Collapsed Suddenly During Practice

Josh Davis (born August 13, 2002) is a former Carlsbad high school football player who joined the Utah State University’s Aggies football team in February 2022.

Some people appear to be confusing him with a different Josh Davis (born Joshua Davis on September 21, 1998) who plays for the Weber State Wildcats as a running back.

The Utah State Josh Davis was training with his team at the Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium on Thursday, March 23, 2023, when he suddenly collapsed on the field.

He was immediately treated by the Utah State University (USU) training staff and emergency medical personnel. He was later taken to the Logan Regional Hospital and then the McKay Dee Hospital, where he was stabilised and underwent therapeutic hypothermia to preserve his neurological function.

Although he was initially not identified, Utah State University later issued a statement identifying him as Josh Davis.

Davis, a redshirt freshman wide receiver from Carlsbad, California, collapsed during practice on Thursday and was immediately treated by USU’s athletic training staff, led by Mike Williams, Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, followed by emergency medical personnel, who transported him to Logan Regional Hospital

Davis received initial critical treatment and was stabilized at Logan Regional Hospital before being transported to McKay-Dee Hospital, where their critical care team continued treatment with therapeutic hypothermia to lower the body temperature to preserve his neurological function.

Davis’ parents, Matt and Chrissy, arrived in Utah Thursday evening, and were met at the hospital by Utah State Team Physician Dr. David G. Liddle, Interim Athletics Director Jerry Bovee, head football coach Blake Anderson and athletic trainer Kendra Gilmore.

Fact #2 : Josh Davis Suffered A Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Utah State University then shared a photo with an update on Friday, March 24, announcing that his condition was upgraded from critical to “Fair Condition” that morning.

It also stated that Josh Davis collapsed after suffering a “non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest“.

Josh Davis, a football player for Utah State, has been upgraded from critical to fair condition as of Friday morning, following a non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest during Thursday’s spring practice on Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium.

Aggies head coach Blake Anderson praised the USU training staff for their quick action, which likely saved Josh Davis’ life.

Awake, alert, and breathing on his own. The training staff absolutely saved his life. No hesitation all. Miracle.

Read more : Did Ryan Keeler Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Josh Davis Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Josh Davis never publicly revealed his COVID-19 vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, which is why many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar were never vaccinated.

Utah State University (USU) required students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for Spring Semester 2022, but dropped that requirement for the Fall 2022 intake.

Since USU calls Josh Davis a freshman (first year student), it is likely he joined USU in the fall, which would mean he was not subjected to the earlier vaccine mandate. That does not mean he is unvaccinated. It simply means – we don’t know his vaccination status.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Josh Davis was fully-vaccinated or boosted is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Is Byron Jones Retiring From Vaccine Injuries?!

Is Miami Dolphins football player Byron Jones retiring after COVID-19 vaccine injuries left him unable to run or jump?!

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

 

Claim : Byron Jones Is Retiring From Vaccine Injuries!

People are claiming that Byron Jones is retiring from the NFL and his Miami Dolphins team, after COVID-19 vaccine injuries left him unable to run or jump!

Byron Jones gives a veiled warning against the COVID vaccines.

“DO NOT take the injections they give you,” Jones wrote. #SafeAndEffective

Byron Jones warns about the Biden Jab!

Byron Jones, the 30-year-old Dolphins cornerback is apparently saying goodbye to the NFL – with clear words… 💉🙄

Truth : Byron Jones Is Not Retiring From Vaccine Injuries!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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…

Fact #1 : Byron Jones Was Warning Other NFL Players

Claims that Miami Dolphins football player Byron Jones is retiring after suffering vaccine injuries is based on a tweet he posted on Saturday, February 25, 2023.

Much has changed in 8 years. Today I can’t run or jump because of my injuries sustained playing this game.

DO NOT take the pills they give you. DO NOT take the injections they give you.

If you absolutely must, consult an outside doctor to learn the long-term implications.

His tweet was not targeted at the public, but at other NFL players, especially the draft class of 2023, because he followed up with this tweet:

It was an honor and privilege to play in the NFL but it came at a regrettable cost I did not foresee. In my opinion, no amount of professional success or financial gain is worth avoidable chronic pain and disabilities.

Godspeed to the draft class of 2023.

Fact #2 : Byron Jones Was Not Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine

Byron Jones (born Byron Philip Jones on September 26, 1992) was first drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2015, and played five seasons with them.

When he signed with the Miami Dolphins on March 21, 2020, he was the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL at that time.

By March 2022, he had to undergo surgery on his left Achilles, with a recovery timeline of several months. However, he didn’t heal well enough, and played no part in the Dolphins’ regular season.

His position coach Sam Madison questioned his ability to pull through his injury in January 2023:

He could have… helped. Injuries come up. Some people fight through them. Some don’t.

Fact #3 : Byron Jones Is Not Retiring

While Byron Jones seemed to imply that he was retiring or had retired from the NFL, he never actually said so. A source later confirmed with ESPN that Byron Jones was not retiring.

Fact #4 : Byron Jones Never Mentioned Any Vaccine Injury

Byron Jones appears to be warning his fellow NFL players against taking the pills or injections given by their team doctors, not COVID-19 vaccinations.

He also did not mention that he suffered any COVID-19 vaccine injury, or attributed his inability to run or jump to the COVID-19 vaccines.

On Monday, February 20, 2023, another member of the UNLV Rebels team found him dead in a Las Vegas studio apartment at around 1:10 PM. Las Vegas police officers were called to the scene shortly thereafter.

UNLV Rebels head coach Barry Odom said in a statement issued by the university :

While I had the honor of knowing Ryan for only a couple of months, he already stood out to our coaching staff as an incredible person, student and teammate.

Our condolences and prayers go out to Ryan’s family as we grieve along with them over this tremendous loss.

Fact #2 : Ryan Keeler’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

The cause of Ryan Keeler’s sudden death is still unknown. While the 911 call was initially handled as a medical call, Las Vegas authorities are investigating Ryan Keeler’s sudden death.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office listed his time of death as 4:05 PM, and said that the cause and manner of Ryan Keeler’s death were pending, as blood toxicology results can take several weeks.

Las Vegas Police officer Robert Wicks also said that an investigation of Ryan Keeler’s death remained open, pending the autopsy report from the coroner and detective findings. The police do not suspect foul play.

Until the Clark County Coroner’s Office reveals his official cause and manner of death, anyone who tells you that Ryan Keeler died of this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Ryan Keeler Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Ryan Keeler has never publicly announced his COVID-19 vaccination status, but it is likely that he was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19.

While the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) does not have a vaccine mandate, his previous school – Rutgers, requires all students and employees to be fully-vaccinated and obtain a booster dose when eligible.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Ryan Keeler was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it is impossible for the COVID-19 vaccine to cause his “collapse” as he would have received his doses many months ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering 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 #5 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen cases I fact checked recently.

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

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

 

No Evidence Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia Died From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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…

Fact #1 : Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia Collapsed On The Field

After school ended on Friday, February 10, 12 year-old Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia and his 10 year-old brother took part in football practice with their team, the Essex County Predators, at the West Side Park in Newark, New Jersey.

Soon after the session started, Elijah Jordan – a sixth grade student of the Rise Academy Charter School, suddenly collapsed. As his brother, Mekhi, recounted :

He didn’t get hit, like no contact or anything. He ran about 20 yards, said he was going to take a little break.

I don’t think he caught his breath that he needed to get. So, when he got up, he passed out.

Fact #2 : No One There Knew CPR

The team’s head coach reported left, leaving another coach and parents to handle the training session. Unfortunately, none of them were trained to perform CPR, and could not resuscitate Elijah Jordan after he collapsed.

Spectators at the field called 911 twice, while Elijah’s younger brother, Mekhi Stradford, called his mother, Raven Brown. She called 911 a third time, and rushed over to the football field.

He said they were throwing water on him and they were fanning him.

Even though the incident took place just a few hundred yards from the Newark Police precinct, it took EMS about 30-40 minutes to arrive. Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia was taken to the University Hospital in Newark, where he died.

Fact #3 : Autopsy Was Performed On Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia

An autopsy was performed on Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia, and his family is awaiting the results.

Until the autopsy results for Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia are announced or revealed by his family, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from any cause of death.

Recommended : Did Duangphet Phromthep Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #4 : Mother Did Not Blame Vaccine For Her Son’s Death

If Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia died from the COVID-19 vaccine, his mother would have spoken up about it.

Yet, Raven Brown did not blame the COVID-19 vaccine for her son’s death. She only called for coaches to be CPR-certified.

Coaches out there need to be CPR certified. He was a great kid. He didn’t deserve this.

She also created a GoFundMe to raise funds for his funeral. Even in its description, she did not cast any blame for her son’s death.

Elijah was an outgoing, loving young kid. He loved dancing and football and loved his family. He made sure everyone was comfortable with his infectious smile. He loved going to school and he loved his friends.

At a young tender age of 12, Elijah passed away playing football, doing what he loved.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia was ever 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.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Elijah Jordan Brown-Garcia received the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Kaden Clymer : 6-Foot Blood Clot NOT From Vaccine!

Fact #6 : Cardiac Arrest Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly die from cardiac arrest. The truth is – people have been dying from cardiac arrest since time immemorial, long before any vaccine was invented.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

On average, about 2,000 young people in the United States die from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and many do not have previously known heart disease.

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

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen cases I fact checked recently.

Claim : Cadet Hunter Brown Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

When news broke that US Air Force Academy cadet Hunter Brown suddenly collapsed and died on the way to class, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

We know he had the jab because he had to stay to in the Air Force. This is really getting out of hand…how many more people have to die before these woke pricks shut down this massive deadly vaccine scam?

Truth : Hunter Brown Did Not Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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…

Fact #1 : Cadet Hunter Brown Suffered A Medical Emergency

On Sunday, January 8, 2023, Candyce and Dustin Brown spoke on the phone with their son, cadet Hunter Brown, who was at his dorm, discussing his class schedule for his sophomore year at the the US Air Force Academy.

Hunter was recovering from a foot surgery he underwent two months earlier, to treat a torn ligament he suffered during football practice.

The next day, Hunter Brown experienced a “medical emergency” while leaving his dormitory for class that Monday morning. It was the USAFA cadets’ first day back from their winter break.

A 21 year-old sophomore (second year student) from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Hunter was also an offensive lineman on the US Air Force’s Falcon football team.

First responders attempted live saving measures, but were ultimately unsuccessful. The US Air Force Academy announced his death on Tuesday, January 10, 2023.

With heavy hearts we share the loss of a cadet.

C3C [Cadet Third Class] Hunter Brown died Monday after suffering a medical emergency while on his way to class.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, teammates and fellow cadets. #NeverForgotten

Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark, U.S. Air Force Academy Superintendent also issued a statement on Hunter Brown’s death:

Hunter was a standout offensive lineman on the Falcon football team and was well-respected in his squadron.

The entire U.S. Air Force Academy mourns his loss, and our hearts and condolences are with his family, his squadron, and all who were touched by this incredible young man.

Fact #2 : Hunter Brown’s Cause Of Death Was Pulmonary Embolism

Agents of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office secured the area where Hunter Brown collapsed and eventually died. They then conducted an investigation into his death – a standard protocol for any military member who dies on-base.

The El Paso County Coroner’s Office said that Hunter Brown’s autopsy was expected to take several weeks. At the end of January 2023, they told his parents of their preliminary results.

According to the preliminary report, the cause of death for Hunter Brown was pulmonary embolism –  blood clots in his lungs. Officials said they found a blood clot in his uninjured leg that was likely to blame for his pulmonary embolism.

The final autopsy result for Hunter Brown has not been released, pending toxicology reports.

Fact #3 : Hunter Brown’s Parents Spoke Out Against Conspiracy Theories

Hunter Brown’s parents spoke up against the conspiracy theories about his death. His mother, Candyce said:

He had a surgery two months before, but we don’t want to feed into any conspiracies. We also still have our personal questions about why, but it wasn’t put out there that he had surgery. No one knew that.

They told Military.com that they didn’t appreciate members of the public speculating about the cause of his sudden death, when they did not know the official cause, and didn’t have the recent context of his recent foot surgery.

Fact #4 : Hunter Brown’s Sister Said He Didn’t Die From Vaccine

Hunter Brown’s sister, Hannah, recently said publicly that her brother’s death was not due to a “jab”, in response to yet another callous post about his death.

Please take this down now. It wasn’t due to a “jab”. This isn’t political and we are hurting.

Fact #5 : Hunter Brown Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that he was “forced” to get vaccinated, it was initially unknown if Hunter Brown was ever vaccinated against COVID-19.

Hunter Brown was a sophomore (second year) student at the United States Air Force Academy, which does not have a vaccine mandate for students. The Department of Defense only had a vaccine mandate for service members, not cadets.

On August 30, 2021, the United States Air Force Academy held a vaccination point of distribution for cadets to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in line with the guidance from the Secretary of Defense. Department of Defense guidance is that only vaccines fully licensed by the FDA are mandated for service members.

Currently, no administrative or disciplinary actions will be taken against cadets who do not receive the vaccine. Service-level policies, when released, determine what, if any, actions will be taken.

It was only on January 27, 2023, that his family confirmed to Military.com that he was vaccinated against COVID-19.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen cases I fact checked:

Did Ben Idir Mehenni Die Suddenly From Vaccine?!

Did Algerian footballer Ben Idir Mehenni die suddenly on the field from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

Claim : Algerian Footballer Ben Idir Mehenni Died From Vaccine!

No Evidence Algerian Footballer Ben Idir Mehenni Died From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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…

Fact #1 : Ben Dir Mehenni Suddenly Collapsed + Died

On Tuesday, 24 January 2023, Union sportive de Oued Amizour (Sports Union of Oued Amizour) played against M.C. Rouiba in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) at the Stade de Reghaia (Reghaia Stadium).

A few minutes before the game ended, Ben Idir Mehenni who played for Oued Amizour collapsed on the field, and was rushed to the Reghaia hospital. Unfortunately, he could not be saved, and passed away.

Ben Idir Mehenni’s death was first announced by the Béjaia Radio, and confirmed by the Fédération Algérienne de Football in a Facebook post on Wednesday, 25 January 2023.

Le joueur a été victime d’un malaise quelques minutes à la fin de la rencontre et a été évacué en urgence à l’hôpital de Reghaia où il avait rendu l’âme quelques minutes après.

The player fell ill a few minutes after the match and was rushed to Reghaia hospital where he passed away a few minutes later.

Fact #2 : Ben Idir Mehenni’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

While many people claimed that Ben Idir Mehenni died from a heart attack, there has been no official source for that claim.

Neither Béjaia Radio nor the Fédération Algérienne de Football said that Ben Idir Mehenni died from a heart attack.

While Ben Idir Mehenni may well indeed have died from a heart attack, he could also have died from a sudden cardiac arrest – another condition which commonly causes athletes to suddenly collapse and die.

In any case, until and unless there is official word from the hospital on his cause of death, or an autopsy report, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Ben Idir Mehenni died from heart attack, the vaccine, or some other cause.

Fact #3 : Ben Idir Mehenni Was Likely Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

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

It is actually pretty likely that Ben Idir Mehenni was not vaccinated, as Algeria has a very low COVID-19 vaccination rate. Less than 15% of its population is fully-vaccinated, and less than 18% ever receive a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Unless he had earlier travelled overseas to play football, it is more than likely that Ben Idir Mehenni was never vaccinated against COVID-19.

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #4 : No mRNA Vaccine Approved For Use In Algeria

While many people blame his death on mRNA vaccines, specifically the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, no mRNA vaccine has ever been approved for use in Algeria!

Only four COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for use in Algeria so far:

  • Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaxzevria : viral vector vaccine
  • Sinovac CoronaVac : inactivated virus vaccine
  • Sinopharm Covilo : inactivated virus vaccine
  • Gamaleya Sputnik V : viral vector vaccine

As you can see – it is really not possible for anyone in Algeria to die from an mRNA vaccine, because no mRNA vaccine is available in Algeria!

Fact #5 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen cases I fact checked recently.
