Claim : Aaron Carter Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Aaron Carter died unexpectedly, anti-vaccination activists immediately claim that the 34 year-old singer and brother of Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

When the #normies wake up and realize what is actually happening with the #vaccine and it’s #VaccineSideEffects and #VaccineDeaths will there be hell to pay for the #unvaccinated ???#backstreetboys #Aaroncarter

Aaron Carter Was Found Dead In His Bathtub. He Received The Pfizer Vaccine. 💉👀

Oh my God… Enough with the vaccines already! People are dropping dead and we KNOW FROM WHAT! #TheUnvaccinatedAreNOTDying

Truth : Aaron Carter Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Aaron Carter Drowned In His Bathtub

Aaron Carter (born Aaron Charles Carter on December 7, 1987) drowned in his bathtub on Saturday, 5 November 2022.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call at 11 AM that morning, saying that “a male had drowned in the tub“. The call came from Aaron Carter’s housekeeper who found his body in the bathtub.

Neighbours heard his housekeeper screaming, “He’s dead, he’s dead”, when they tried to assist her:

I have a police scanner for work and heard the call come in that there was an unresponsive male in the bathtub.

My wife is a nurse and we headed over and banged on the door, she had her AED [automated external defibrillator] with her.

A woman answered the door and was screaming, ‘He’s dead, he’s dead,’ but wouldn’t let us in because she’d already called the cops.

– Tony Cheval, a local photojournalist

Homicide detectives were dispatched to his house at 4200 LA Vista Drive in Lancaster, California, where they found him dead in his bathtub.

Fact #2 : Police Came A Day Earlier On Another Welfare Check

The last time anyone saw Aaron Carter alive was 2 AM on Friday – a day earlier, when police came for a prior welfare check.

His housekeeper opened the door, but Aaron told them to leave and asked his housekeeper not to bother him.

Fact #3 : Aaron Carter Died For A Long Time In The Bathtub

The housekeeper did not see Aaron Carter all day Friday, but on Saturday morning, she went to his bedroom door to see if he wanted coffee.

That’s when she heard his dog inside the bedroom going crazy. When she opened the door, she found Aaron’s body in the tub, with the water jets still running.

Law enforcement officers believe that Aaron died in the bathtub for a long time, as there was a smell of decomposition, and the water had turned an unnatural colour.

Fact #4 : Police Found Compressed Air Cans + Medications

Police officers said that there was no evidence of foul play at this time.

However, they found multiple cans of compressed air in Aaron Carter’s bathroom and bedroom, as well as bottles of prescription pills. There was no suicide note.

This form of inhalant abuse can cause permanent brain damage, as well as seizures, coma and even sudden cardiac arrest. It can also cause asphyxiation by displacing oxygen in the lungs, with the inhalant.

Fact #5 : Aaron Carter’s Cause of Death Was Deferred

Aaron Carter’s body was taken away by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office, for an autopsy to determine his official cause and manner of death.

According to the just released Case Number 2022-11542 report, his body was examined by Dr. Hunt, the Deputy Medical Examiner, and was ready to be released to his family.

However, Aaron Carter’s official cause of death was “deferred pending additional investigation“. That usually means the coroner is waiting for blood, drug and/or toxicology test results to determine the cause and manner of death.

Until the autopsy results are known, anyone who claims that Aaron Carter died of this cause or that cause is lying to you. There is no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines had any part in his death.

Fact #6 : Aaron Carter Had A Long History Of Drug Addiction

While it is unknown how Aaron Carter drowned in his own bathtub, but people close to him suggested that he died from a drug overdose or suicide.

Courtney Stodden said that Carter confided his troubles to her, and she was always afraid that “this was going to happen“.

I am literally so upset about Aaron Carter’s death.

He’s reached out to me so many times and I was always so afraid to think this was going to happen.

He called me to confide – I always hoped that he’d heal but now he’s at peace … I’m so gutted. #ripaaroncarter #rip #tooyoung

Todd Bridges specifically mentioned Aaron Carter’s long history of drug addiction in his tribute on Twitter:

Addiction is a Horrible battle. It’s a fight you can never stop fighting. Some of us get out to start over and some of us don’t make it. God still loves us all no matter what. God and my mom and me saved my life. RIP
Aaron carter my brother in Arms

Aaron Carter admitted on a 2019 episode of The Doctors that he was addicted to huffing compressed air. He even claimed that his late sister, Leslie Carter, introduced him to the habit, before fatally overdosing in January 2012, at the age of 25.

In September, some of his fans actually called the police to conduct a welfare check on him, after they suspected he was doing drugs. Halfway through a livestream, he turned off the camera but his fans could hear “spraying and inhaling going on in the background”.

Fact #7 : Aaron Carter Had Mental Health Issues

Aaron Carter previously revealed that he was battling with multiple mental health issues in a 2019 appearance on The Doctors.

Not only was he diagnosed with schizophrenia, multiple personality disorder, and acute anxiety; he was also manic depressive, and had post traumatic stress disorder. He was on quite a few medication to treat them:

The official diagnosis is that I suffer from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression.

I’m prescribed to Xanax, Seroquel, Gabapentin, Hydroxyzine, Trazodone, Omeprazen. This is my reality. I have nothing to hide.

In September 2019, his own brother – Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter, actually filed a restraining order against Aaron, citing his “increasingly alarming behaviour”, and his “recent confessions” of wanting to kill Nick’s wife – Lauren Kitt, as well as their unborn child.

In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confessions that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family.

We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else.

Fact #8 : Aaron Carter Was Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is ludicrous that anti-vaccination activists would so blatantly claim that Aaron Carter died from the COVID-19 vaccine, when he was an anti-vaxxer himself and never received the COVID-19 vaccine!

As evidence, they are sharing a May 2021 video in which Aaron Carter said that his fiancee would get the Moderna vaccine, but he would get the Pfizer vaccine instead.

However, it appears he did not go through with the vaccination, because he lost his role In in the Las Vegas show – Naked Boys Singing in August 2021, over his refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

This was later confirmed in June 2022, when Aaron Carter said on an Instagram livestream that he never got vaccinated against COVID-19, and ended up getting infected twice.

Bizarrely, he stated that his reason for not taking the COVID-19 vaccine was because he was a descendent of the Mayflower colonists, which he claimed made him a “thorough blood patriot” with a superior immune system.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Let me be clear – Aaron Carter was not vaccinated against COVID-19, just like Kaden Clymer who antivaxxers falsely claimed suffered a 6-foot long blood clot from the vaccine!

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

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

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

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

Katy Perry Explains Eye Glitch + Mocks Vaccine, Robot Claims!

Katy Perry just explained her viral eye glitch, and mocked those who claimed it was a vaccine side effect, or that she’s a robot!

 

Katy Perry : Eye Glitch Is Her Party Trick!

Days after a video of her eye glitch went viral on TikTok, Katy Perry addressed her eye glitch, calling it her “broken doll eye party trick“, which her fans have already noted that she does quite often in her shows.

She also pointed out another party trick in her shows – pouring beer out of her tits, and pointed out that she doesn’t “actually lactate hops”!

heck I pour beer out of my tits (that’s a party trick too… I don’t actually lactate hops silly goose!)🍺 Hope to sing along with you in 2023! And we’ll drink, this one’s on me, cause we’re all #chainedtothealgorithm 🤡⛓ #therealproblemlolhaha😅

Katy Perry also took the opportunity to mock conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists who blamed her eye glitch on the COVID-19 vaccine, calling them “flatearthers” “spaceisfakers”, “birdsarentrealers” and “skyisntbluers”.

Tongue-in-cheek, she invited them to catch her “party trick” in her Las Vegas concerts next year!

Oooh, the sass! I so love her!

Read more : Why Did Katy Perry Suffer Eye Glitch On Stage?!

Katy Perry also responded to those who joked that her eye glitch was “evidence” that she’s really a robot. After all – who could be so perfect?

Three days earlier, she posted a photo of herself looking stonily ahead like a robot, while wearing a brown dress by ABOUT YOU.

This is social media marketing at its best!

 

Katy Perry Uses Eye Glitch To Announce 2023 Shows!

Now that she has gone viral with her eye glitch, Katy Perry announced an extension of her Las Vegas residency, and a slew of 14 concerts in 2023!

  • February 15, 17, 18, 22, 24 and 25
  • April 5, 7, 8, 12, 14 and 15

The show’s set list is a fun 🎢 through memory lane going all the way back to 2008, a time when we weren’t all frozen by the paranoia of our own echo chambers! 🤸🏻‍♀️ This show is a nonstop party about finding unconditional love and strangely (for me) not political at all

Tickets go on sale at 10 AM, Friday, November 4, 2022 at axs.com/katyinvegas.

Note to all antivaxxers and conspiracy theorists, if you buy one of the VIP packages, you will get to meet Katy Perry herself, and you know – ask her to perform her eye glitch for you!

Here’s a better idea – buy ME a VIP package to her concert, and I will get Katy Perry to document her eye glitch party trick for you in high-definition video, up close! You can’t beat that kind of evidence!

Katy Perry : Why Did Her Eye Glitch On Stage?!

Video footage of Katy Perry suffering an eye glitch on stage has gone viral, with some people blaming it on the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Updated @ 2022-10-28 : Added Katy Perry’s official response to her eye glitch.

Claim : Katy Perry Suffered Eye Glitch From COVID-19 Vaccine!

A video of Katy Perry performing recently at Las Vegas has gone viral, after it showed her suffering some kind of eye glitch on stage.

The video, which was uploaded to TikTok, showed the 38 year-old singer struggling to open her right eye in the middle of her performance.

Almost immediately, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that she’s suffering from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. Here are some examples:

Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. It’s known as the Pfizer eye #PfizerEyes

#KatyPerry: Eye of the #Pfizer. Almost sad if she wasn’t another crazy cultist

Steve Kirsch : There is something very wrong here. My vaccine injured friends would bet the farm that it’s a vaccine injury. If it was the vaccine, she wouldn’t be able to admit it.

The fact that she has said nothing about this on her Twitter feed is also very suspicious. Everyone is talking about this. So it means there isn’t an explanation for this incident that she is allowed to share with the public that the public will believe (that is consistent with what we all observed).

So I’m guessing a COVID vaccine side effect.

Truth : Katy Perry Did NOT Get Eye Glitch From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Katy Perry Apparently Does This Quite Frequently

Katy Perry fans, who call themselves KatyCats, claim that it’s actually part of her act – to mimic old dolls that open and close their eyes when you tilt them.

OK so this is some weird gag she does at her show to resemble those old dolls that opened and closed their eyes when you tilted them.

I was kinda worried it was a stroke or surgery mishap. But no, she does that on purpose.

Yeah she does it pretty frequently during the show. Not every night but she’s done it at least once per 8 show run.

Fact #2 : Katy Perry Does Eye Glitch As Party Trick!

On October 28, Katy Perry publicly addressed the viral eye glitch video, explaining that it was just a “party trick” for her shows. This was what her fans pointed out earlier (see Fact #1 above).

She also mocked conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists who blamed it on the vaccine, calling them “flatearthers” “spaceisfakers”, “birdsarentrealers” and “skyisntbluers”.

She then invited them to watch her repeat her eye glitch party trick in her upcoming 2023 concerts! Such sass!

Read more : Katy Perry Uses Eye Glitch To Announce 2023 Shows!

Fact #3 : Katy Perry May Have Had An Itch

Here is a possible reason on Reddit for her closing an eyelid that only “magically” opened after she rubbed her temple.

Since there are no women on this sub, this is from my friend who is a professional makeup artist, ‘Katy has false lashes on in this. It’s likely there’s something in her eye, or bothering her eye, but she can’t rub them because it will ruin her make up.

Stage make up is very heavy and will get everywhere when you touch it. She’s gentling pulling her temple area to try and alleviate the itch or clear whatever is bothering her eye without doing damage. I have models that do this weekly.

Fact #4 : Katy Perry Has A Wonk Eye

While serving as a judge on the 16th season of American Idol in 2018, Katy Perry shared with a contestant Caleb Kennedy that she has a wonk eye, also known as a lazy eye :

I have a wonk eye as well, and I used to be worried about it. Then a bunch of my fans created a fandom over my wonk-eye. I even have a fandom that calls itself, ‘Katy’s wonk-eye.’

It’s my right eye. So just celebrate all that stuff. Don’t worry about it.

Antivax tech millionaire shared a YouTube video claiming to prove that Katy Perry’s wonk eye is actually her left eye. That video was likely flipped, as Katy herself said that it was her right eye that’s wonky.

Fact #5 : Katy Perry Could Have Had Blepharospasm

Whether her left or right eye is the wonky one, Katy Perry could have had blepharospasm – a fancy term for the involuntary twitching or closing of the eyelid.

Blepharospasm can happen to one or both eyes, and is characterised by “uncontrollable eyelid closure” and/or twitching of the eye muscles.

It is likely that she was touching her twitching facial muscles during the spasm, in an attempt to control them and regain control of her eyelid.

Nevertheless, she seemed unfazed by it, bellowing into the microphone, “Make even more noise for my band!

Recommended : Did Bruce Willis Get Aphasia From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : Katy Perry Does Not Have Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Now, let me just clear up this nonsense claim that Katy Perry is suffering from the same Ramsay Hunt syndrome that Justin Bieber is suffering from.

The viral video clearly shows that only her eyelid is affected. She does not have half her face paralysed as some have claimed. If half her face had been paralysed, she would have trouble speaking, never mind singing!

Facial paralysis from Ramsay Hunt syndrome cannot be corrected by quickly touching her temple either.

Fact #7 : Katy Perry Does Not Have Bell’s Palsy

Similarly, Katy Perry isn’t suffering from Bell’s palsy, which presents similarly to Ramsay Hunt syndrome in the form of facial paralysis on one side of the face.

Again, she would not be able to speak or sing properly, if half her face was paralysed and this paralysis cannot be quickly fixed by simply touching her temple.

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

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

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

Doug Brignole Died From COVID-19, Not Vaccine!

Former Mr Universe Doug Brignole died from COVID-19, and not the vaccine!

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

Updated @ 2022-10-27 : Added Doug Brignole’s official cause of death, and additional details
Originally posted @ 2022-10-17

 

Claim : Doug Brignole Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Doug Brignole died at 62 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the former Mr Universe and Mr America bodybuilder died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS)!

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

Doug Brignole said “If I die, you are right” because he was super fit and healthy and he knew that the only way he would die would be if the vaccine was poison. And he died. Therefore the people saying the vaccine is poison were fucking right.

Doug Brignole (1960 – 2022) R.I.P: According to Doug, those who have been saying the “vaccines are safe and effective” should now admit that they were misled, tell the world who misled you, so that other people can benefit by ignoring those fear mongers.

Steve Kirsch : The clear conclusion: the vaccines are unsafe. I was right.

Truth : Doug Brignole Died From COVID-19, Not Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Doug Brignole Died From COVID-19!

Doug Brignole (born Douglas Brignole on December 15, 1959) passed away on Thursday, October 13, 2022 – at 62 years of age, just two months shy of his 63rd birthday.

At that time, he was getting ready to make a special appearance at the AAU Mr Universe contest in Las Vegas, on October 22.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner conducted an autopsy of Doug Brignole’s body to determine his cause of death as Case number 2022-10791.

Doug Brignole’s cause of death was just announced as COVID-19, complicated by Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease.

So there you have it – confirmation that Doug Brignole did NOT die from COVID-19 vaccine complications or side effects.

Recommended : Why Did Katy Perry Suffer Eye Glitch On Stage?!

Fact #2 : Doug Brignole Was Fully Vaccinated

As a fitness and bodybuilding guru, Doug Brignole was very particular about his health. He read up on the COVID-19 vaccines, and was firmly behind the science.

In fact, he posted in April 5, 2021, that he just received his COVID-19 vaccine and that everyone should use him as a “test”, to see if the vaccine was safe or dangerous.

I’m vaccinated ! Well, the first of two. Let’s get this done so we can get back to traveling, going to concerts, and having fun.

My vaccine was yesterday, and I had no problem with it. My deltoid was a bit sore, but otherwise fine. We’re all in this together, so let’s do our share to beat it.

I have enough confidence in the vaccine, based on my research, to get it done. Those of you who think the vaccine kills people can use me as a test.

If I die, you were right. If I don’t die, and have no ill effects, you were wrong, and should admit it (at least to yourselves).

Better yet, you should admit to the world who misled you, so other people can benefit by avoiding those fear mongers.

Doug Brignole did not suffer any significant side effects, or die from his COVID-19 vaccination that he took in April 2021.

The very fact that he was fit and getting ready for a special Mr Universe appearance proves that the vaccine had no deleterious effect on his fitness or health.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Doug Brignole Received Bivalent Booster Dose

Anti-vaccination proponent Steve Kirsch, who is ironically fully-vaccinated, claim that someone who knew Doug Brignole told him that he received the latest (bivalent) booster dose less than a week before he died.

While that is possible, there is currently ZERO EVIDENCE that Doug Brignole received the bivalent booster dose just a few days before he died. Even Kirsch himself admitted that Brignole’s girlfriend refused to talk to him about this.

As we have seen, Doug Brignole is not shy about telling people when he got vaccinated, and would have no qualms sharing that he received the latest bivalent booster dose.

So it is peculiar that he did not post about getting the bivalent booster dose, at all. Unless Steve Kirsch can actually provide any actual evidence, we will have to chalk this up to the same old Kirsch-style boastful but baseless claims.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccine Is Not A Force Field

Inevitably, anti-vaccination activists will now point to Doug Brignole’s death from COVID-19 as evidence that the vaccines don’t work.

COVID-19 vaccines work. They just do not function like a force field that repels the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as antivaxxers claim they should work.

Instead, they are training boot camps for your immune system, offering facsimiles of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to give it the opportunity to learn how to identify and defeat the real coronavirus.

While that training will protect the vast majority of vaccinated people from severe disease or death from COVID-19, it is not 100% efficacious.

This is partly because antibody levels will wane over time (hence, the need for booster shots), and partly because the COVID-19 virus is constantly mutating.

Therefore, some vaccinated people like Doug Brignole will still catch COVID-19, and develop severe illness and even die. But their risk is far less than that of the unvaccinated.

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

Doug Brignole was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 more than 18 months ago. That’s 1.5 years ago.

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

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

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

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

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

Fact #7 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From 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.

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

Fact Check : Did Louie Anderson Die From Booster Dose?!

Did comedian and actor Louie Anderson die from his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose?

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

 

Claim : Louie Anderson Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

Antivaxxers are suggesting that comedian and actor Louie Anderson died from heart complications brought on by his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose!

Louie Anderson was a passenger on my cousin’s flight 2 days ago.. He was flying to appear on Conan.. He was an extremely friendly man and spoke with her most of the flight… 

They talked about his cancer and shared with her how he’s been in remission 5 years now.. half way through the flight he started complaining about his heart.. he was swearing and pale and the staff became very worried.. he received medical treatment shortly after he landed..

He also spoke about the vaccine and how Mr. Anderson received his 3 vaccine a few weeks ago.

To make that claim more credible, they often include a link to an article about Louie Anderson’s death.

 

Truth : Louie Anderson Died From Cancer, Not Booster Dose!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by antivaxxers to scare people from protecting themselves with the COVID-19 vaccines.

Like Betty White, Bob Saget and Meat Loaf, there is NO EVIDENCE that Louie Anderson died from the COVID-19 booster dose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Louie Anderson Died From COVID-19 Vaccine

While antivaxxers are suggesting that Louie Anderson died from the COVID-19 vaccine, they offer absolutely NO EVIDENCE for their claim.

The articles they shared as “evidence” do not mention that Louie died from the booster dose. They only added those article links to mislead you into thinking that they are evidence that he died from the booster dose.

After all, most people don’t bother to click on the links to actually read the articles. That’s the same reason some people believe that Meat LoafBob Saget and Betty White died from their COVID-19 booster shots…

Fact #2 : Louie Anderson Died From Cancer Complications

The truth is – Louie Anderson died from complications related to his cancer on Friday, 21 January 2022.

This was confirmed by his longtime publicist, Glenn Schwartz, who told reporters that Anderson died died to complications of diffuse large B cell lymphoma.

He did not die from COVID-19, or the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Fact #3 : His Publicist Refuted The Claim

When Politifact asked his publicist, Glenn Schwartz, about this claim, he replied – “Not true“.

Fact #4 : Louie Anderson Was Hospitalised For 4 Days

Louie Anderson was hospitalised in Las Vegas from 18 January until he died on 21 January 2022.

So the story most definitely lied about Louie Anderson flying to tape a show with Conan two days ago.

Hours before he died, fellow comedian Pauly Shore visited him to say his goodbyes :

Fact #5 : Conan Ended In June 2021!

Conan O’Brien ended his eponymous late night show on 24 June 2021, after 28 years on the air.

The US FDA only authorised the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 booster dose for immunocompromised people like Louie Anderson on 12 August 2021.

Therefore, it was not possible for Anderson to receive a booster dose a few weeks before flying to tape the Conan show.

Fact #6 : Anderson Last Appeared On Conan In March 2021

Louie Anderson last appeared on Conan on 16 March 2021, but that was a remote appearance from Henderson, Nevada.

That was more than 6 months before the US FDA authorised the first booster dose on 22 September 2021.

So Anderson could not possibly have received a booster dose before doing a remote show on Conan.

In fact, in that show, he told Conan that he just received his second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, joking about it.

Conan : You got vaccinated?

Anderson : I just got my second shot and, God, just right after I got it, maybe an hour, I started getting nauseated, I was feeling sick, I called the doctor going, ‘Can it happen that fast?’ and then I went, ‘Oh, wait — I did stop and get White Castle on the way home.’

Fact #7 : Anderson Had A Heart Problem

In addition to battling diffuse large B cell lymphoma, Louie Anderson also had an unspecified heart problem.

In 2003, he was hospitalised and underwent two procedures to correct that heart problem – allegedly a double-bypass surgery.

Therefore, it would ridiculous to pin any heart problems on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Booster Dose Proven Safe + Effective

The COVID-19 booster dose is nothing more than a third dose of existing COVID-19 vaccines – all of which have undergone not only massive clinical trials, but also post-approval monitoring.

They have been proven to be safe and effective time and time again, and the booster dose is no different.

It is unknown if Anderson actually received a booster dose, but he had already had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine without any adverse effect.

Therefore, it is highly unlikely that he would suddenly suffer an adverse effect from a booster dose.

This is yet another example of fake news by antivaxxers, to mislead you on the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Just look at how antivaxxers claimed that Betty White died from the booster dose, only for her death certificate to reveal that she died from a stroke!

Did they apologise? Correct themselves? Nope. They just moved on to the next celebrity death.

Please SHARE this fact check with your family and friends, and protect yourself and your family by vaccinating against COVID-19!

Was Nevada Governor Assaulted Because He’s A Black Man?

Was the Governor of Nevada assaulted by security officers who didn’t recognise him, because he’s a black man?

Take a look at the shocking video, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Nevada Governor Was Assaulted Because He’s A Black Man!

These messages have gone viral on WhatsApp, together with a video showing security officers wrestling a man to the ground, almost taking down a metal detector in the process.

The Governor of Nevada USA, an African-American going to a meeting was not recognized by security and was treated like a real black and they nearly killed him 😲 😰 😭

حاكم ولاية نيفادا رجل اسود ذهب الي اجتماع لم يتعرف عليه الأمن والنتيجة 😩😩😩😩

The Governor of Nevada, USA, an African-American going to a meeting, was not recognised by security. They manhandled him like a criminal. 🤣🤣🤣

In the video, you can hear the man recording the video shouting, “That’s your Lieutenant Governor! What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing? That’s your Lieutenant Governor!

The man then continues, “You guys are gone! You guys are gone!

 

Truth : Nevada Governor / Lt. Governor Was NOT Assaulted At All!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS being shared on WhatsApp, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : That’s Not Nevada Governor Or Lieutenant Governor

The man in the video is neither the Governor of Nevada, nor its Lieutenant Governor.

The current Governor of Nevada is Steve Sisolak, while the Lieutenant Governor of Nevada is Kate Marshall.

They are both Caucasians, and from the Democratic Party.

Fact #2 : Man Wrestled To The Ground Is Mack Miller

The man who was filmed being wrestled to the ground is Mack Miller, a convicted US Army deserter and a Republican who is running to replace Kate Marshall as Lieutenant Governor of Nevada.

Irrespective of what the man on the video was shouting, he has NOT been elected Lieutenant Governor of Nevada. He is merely one of several people running for the job.

It was not that the security officers did not recognise him. He was simply not an elected Nevada official.

Fact #3 : Mack Miller Was Removed For Being Disruptive

The video was recorded at the Clark County Commission Office’s meeting, where the committee voted in a 5-2 decision to declare the spread of COVID-19 misinformation “a public health crisis”.

Protestors at the meeting claimed that the decision violated their First Amendment rights, and Miller was ejected after apparently joining the protest which broke out into a fight between demonstrators and the security officers.

Being an African American was not the reason why he was forcibly removed. It should be noted that one of the two security officers carrying him out is African American.

Fact #4 : It Was An Accident

The claim of assault is not legitimate. The video clearly shows Mack Miller jumping backwards as the two security officers forced him out.

When the two security officers hit the metal detector, it almost fell. That’s when Miller fell backwards – when the two security guards lost their grip on him, as they tried to hold the metal detector up.

It was not assault. It was merely an accident.

78-Card GeForce RTX 3080 Mining Rig Powered Up!

The mega crypto-mining rig, built using 78 GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards, has powered up!

Check it out, and find out why crypto-miners are buying graphics cards by the pallets!

 

78-Card GeForce RTX 3080 Mining Rig Almost Operational!

You may have seen Simon Byrne’s crypto-mining rig, that uses 78 GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards arranged in an array of 13 x 6 cards.

That 78-card RTX 3080 mining rig, which he calls Bertha 2, is almost operational. And he’s keeping it cool with 120 fans, with RGB, of course! It is said – RGB makes thing go faster? 😉

In this picture, you can see most of the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards powered up. When fully operational, it should deliver 6.5 gigahashes per second!

In case you are wondering what Berta – his first-generation mining rig – looks like, here is a photo he shared :

He created Bertha 1 using 130 Zotac GeForce RTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, in January 2018 – 3 years ago!

 

How Much Money Can This RTX 3080 Crypto Mining Rig Make?

Just how much money can Simon make from this crypto-mining rig?

Officially, RTX 3080 cards start at $699, but due to the shortage of cards, they are now selling for about $1,199 each.

So the cards in this rig alone would cost approximately $93,522. Let’s call it a flat $100,000 for the whole rig, plus power supplies.

The average commercial electricity rate in Las Vegas (where he’s based) is 8.43 cents per kWh. So electricity should cost about $1444 per month. Let’s make that $2166 per month (+50%) to account for cooling costs.

Each GeForce RTX 3080 has a hash rate of 83.57 MH/s using the Ethash (Phoenix) algorithm, which should generate approximately 0.22236870 ETH worth US$165 every month.

So the total rig of 78 cards should generate 17.3447586 ETH worth $12,840 per month. Deducting electricity costs, that’s a net profit of $10,674 per month or $128,088 per year!

That’s an incredible ROI of 10.7% per month, which means he recovers the cost of the entire rig in just under 9.5 months.

No wonder crypto miners are buying up graphics cards by the pallets… at the expense of PC gamers all around the world!

Simon assured gamers that he doesn’t buy his cards from the regular retail supply chain. However, the large-scale purchase of graphics cards for crypto-mining is a major cause of graphics card shortage across the world.

Crypto Mining Rig With 78 GeForce RTX 3080 Cards!

Can’t find an affordable GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card? That’s because crypto-mining is one of the reasons why there is a shortage of graphics cards worldwide.

Here is a crypto-mining rig being built by Simon Byrne, using the 78 GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards arranged in an array of 13 x 6 cards.

With a power consumption of 300 watts per card, that’s crypto-mining rig would require at least 23.4 kilowatts of power to run, and a lot of air-conditioning to keep them cool!

Update : This GeForce RTX 3080 mining rig is almost operational!

Key NVIDIA EGX Announcements @ MWC Los Angeles 2019!

At MWC Los Angeles 2019, NVIDIA announced major partnerships on their EGX edge computing platform with Microsoft, Ericsson and Red Hat to accelerate AI, IoT and 5G at the Edge.

Catch the official NVIDIA EGX briefing on these new updates, and find out what it means for edge computing!

 

The Official NVIDIA EGX Briefing @ MWC Los Angeles 2019

Before the official announcement, NVIDIA gave us an exclusive briefing on their EGX edge computing platform. We are sharing it with you, so you can hear it directly from Justin Boitano, General Manager of NVIDIA’s Enterprise & Edge Computing division.

Here is a summary of what NVIDIA unveiled at MWC Los Angeles 2019 :

NVIDIA EGX Early Adopters

NVIDIA actually announced EGX at Computex Taipei in June 2019 – a combination of the NVIDIA CUDA-X software and NVIDIA-certified GPU servers and devices.

Now, they are announcing that Walmart, BMW, Proctor & Gamble, Samsung Electronics and ETT East have adopted the EGX platform, and so have the cities of San Francisco and Las Vegas.

  • Samsung Electronics — The Korean electronics giant is using AI at the edge for highly complex semiconductor design and manufacturing processes.
  • BMW — The German automaker is using intelligent video analytics in its South Carolina manufacturing facility to automate inspection. With EGX gathering data from multiple cameras and other sensors in inspection lines, BMW is helping ensure only the highest quality automobiles leave the factory floor.
  • NTT East — The Japanese telecom services giant is using EGX in its data centers to develop new AI-powered services in remote areas through its broadband access network. Using the EGX platform, NTT East will provide remote populations the computing power and connectivity required to build and deploy a wide range of AI applications at the edge.
  • Procter & Gamble — The world’s leading consumer goods company is working with NVIDIA to develop AI-enabled applications on top of the EGX platform for the inspection of products and packaging to help ensure they meet the highest safety and quality standards. P&G is using NVIDIA EGX to analyze thousands of hours of footage from inspection lines and immediately flag imperfections.
  • Las Vegas — The city is using EGX to capture vehicle and pedestrian data to ensure safer streets and expand economic opportunity. Las Vegas plans to use the data to autonomously manage signal timing and other operational capabilities.
  • San Francisco — The city’s Union Square Business Improvement District is using EGX to capture real-time pedestrian counts for local retailers, providing them a powerful business intelligence tool for engaging with their customers more effectively.

NVIDIA EGX Case Study : Walmart

Walmart is a pioneer user of EGX, deploying it in its Levittown, New York, Intelligent Retail Lab — a fully-operational grocery store where it’s exploring the ways AI can further improve in-store shopping experiences.

Using EGX’s advanced AI and edge capabilities, Walmart is able to compute in real time more than 1.6 terabytes of data generated each second, and can use AI to :

  • automatically alert associates to restock shelves,
  • open up new checkout lanes,
  • retrieve shopping carts, and
  • ensure product freshness in meat and produce departments.

NVIDIA EGX Partnership With Microsoft

NVIDIA announced a collaboration with Microsoft to enable the closer integration between Microsoft Azure and the NVIDIA EGX platform, to advance edge-to-cloud AI computing capabilities for their clients.

The NVIDIA Metropolis video analytics application framework, which runs on EGX, has been optimized to work with Microsoft’s Azure IoT Edge, Azure Machine Learning solutions and a new form factor of the Azure Data Box Edge appliance powered by NVIDIA T4 GPUs.

In addition, NVIDIA-certified off-the-shelf servers — optimised to run Azure IoT Edge and ML services — are now available from more than a dozen leading OEMs, including Dell, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Lenovo.

NVIDIA EGX Partnership With Ericsson

NVIDIA also announced that they are collaborating with Ericsson on developing virtualised RAN technologies.

Their ultimate goal is to commercialise those virtualised RAN technologies to deliver 5G networks with flexibility and shorter time-to-market for new services like augmented reality, virtual reality and gaming.

NVIDIA EGX Partnership With Red Hat

Finally, NVIDIA announced a collaboration with Red Hat to deliver software-defined 5G wireless infrastructure running on Red Hat OpenShift to the telecom industry.

Their customers will be able to use NVIDIA EGX and Red Hat OpenShift to deploy NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate AI, data science and machine learning at the edge.

The critical element enabling 5G providers to move to cloud-native infrastructure is NVIDIA Aerial. This software developer kit, also announced today, allows providers to build and deliver high-performance, software-defined 5G wireless RAN by delivering two essential advancements.

They are a low-latency data path directly from Mellanox network interface cards to GPU memory, and a 5G physical layer signal-processing engine that keeps all data within the GPU’s high-performance memory.

The Realme Selfie Guide + Showcase Of US West Coast!

Realme smartphones are not known for the selfies, which is a shame. We took the Realme 3 on a trip across the US West Coast, and here is our Realme selfie guide and showcase!

Find out what settings you should use on Realme smartphones, and check out the selfies we took from the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles!

Don’t forget to also check out our Realme Nightscape Guide For Awesome Night Shots!

 

The Realme 3 Selfie Camera

The Realme 3 selfie camera has a higher-resolution 13 MP sensor with a brighter f/2.0 lens. The Realme 2, you may recall, has an 8 MP front camera with f/2.2 lens.

Its f/2.0 aperture puts its front camera on par with many flagship-class smartphones like the HUAWEI Mate 20, the Samsung Galaxy A9 2018, the HONOR 20, and the OPPO R17 Pro.

Its higher-end brother, the Realme 3 Pro, also has a front camera with a wide f/2.0 aperture. The only difference is it has a higher-resolution 25 MP sensor, instead of a 13 MP sensor.

 

The Realme Selfie Camera Guide

We highly recommend that you enable these settings before you start shooting – Location, Flip Selfie, and Auto HDR. These are the common settings you find in other Realme smartphones, like the Realme 2 Pro and the Realme 3 Pro.

Location

While travelling in the US, we do not always have time to note the exact location (building, street address, etc.) where we take these photos.

Enabling Location lets the Realme 3 add the GPS coordinates to every photo, so you can always look up the location when you get back.

Flip Selfie

We highly recommend turning on the Flip Selfie option, which basically gives you a mirror image of the selfie. This is important because it makes sure any text in the background will be readable.

This was not enabled by default, which led to some of our selfies not turning out right. Make sure you enable this option before you start taking your selfies!

Auto HDR

Selfies are often impromptu… spontaneous… There’s very little time to set-up a selfie, unless you’re an influencer and you would have a buddy or two, with LED lighting, etc (you get the idea).

This is why you should make sure Auto HDR is enabled. It lets the Realme 3 automatically decide when is the best time to take HDR shots (combining multiple shots with different exposures).

HDR will bring out the details in both dark and overexposed areas of a photo, while increasing the picture’s dynamic range. Take a look at this example :

Without Auto HDR, both faces in this selfie shot would be too dark because of the overly bright background.

It may not be obvious in the picture above, but it was CRAZY HOT and BRIGHT at the Grand Canyon when I took that photo in the shade. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out!

Realme 3 Selfie Samples From Boulder City

After landing in Las Vegas, we headed straight for Boulder City, which is a small town about 30 minutes away.

You will pass it on the way to the Grand Canyon, or Hoover Dam. So it’s a great place to stop for the night, especially if you plan to visit Hoover Dam.

But first, we had some burger and chicken fingers at The Chicken Shack. The folks here are extremely friendly! 😄

Here is Nick with the Double Shack burger, with double beef patties and cheese. Only$9.79 before taxes, , with a side of fries and a drink!

And here are Steve and Justin with my order of chicken fingers! 😄

The chicken tenders here are large strips of chicken breast meat. I prefer dark meat, but they were juicy and tender. Only $7.99 for 5 of “em!

This is Allyson from the Boulder Pit Stop, serving our Pit Burger and Turkey Burger. Seriously great burgers even without adding cheese, bacon or mushrooms.


The Pit Burger with a 1/3 lb patty is only $5.75 before taxes, and the Turkey Burger only $4.50 before taxes. If you’re ever going to Boulder City, make sure you try them out!

 

Realme 3 Selfie Samples From Hoover Dam

The best view of Hoover Dam is actually midway across the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.

Just turn off about a mile after the security check point, and walk up to the Memorial Plaza, which leads to the pedestrian walkway of the bridge.

There’s no need to walk all the way to the end. Just walk until you get a picture you like, or to the mid-point, so you can have one foot in Nevada, and another foot in Arizona! 😀

The lifts were undergoing maintenance so there were no tours that day. However, Hoover Dam tour guides like Alan gave us a presentation on the Hoover Dam instead.

You can feel the pride and love they have for this American engineering marvel!

 

Realme 3 Selfie Samples From The Grand Canyon

Being short on time, we took a short plane + helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon at a Boulder City airport.

Scott here took us on a short cruise down the Colorado river, through the Grand Canyon West Rim.

The bulk of the Grand Canyon West Rim (seen behind us) belongs to the US National Park, while the opposing side is part of the Hualapai Indian Reservation.

It was CRAZY HOT and really bright at the Grand Canyon that day, but thanks to its Auto HDR capability, this selfie taken at Guano Point turned out much better than I expected!

Since it was so bright, I expected harsh shadows on our faces, and a terribly blown-out background. Yet, the shadows were surprisingly soft, and you can clearly see the Grand Canyon in the back, and even the clouds and the blue sky!

 

Realme 3 Selfie Samples From Las Vegas

It’s been years since my last visit to Las Vegas, and while much has remained the same, a lot has changed!

Here is the venerable Las Vegas landmark – the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas signboard!

While it has not changed, it has been upgraded with a special parking lot built into the median, so tourists can park and not get hit by traffic on both sides of the Las Vegas Boulevard! 😅

I then spent three days at Dell Technologies World 2019, where I met really nice people like Stephanie Silva from McLaren…

And Ben Driscoll and Kendall Peters, who ran the always-busy Press and Analyst Room!

We also had the opportunity to meet and take selfies with the incredibly funny and entertaining Penn & Teller!

These guys are AWESOME! If you can only catch one magic show in Las Vegas, you MUST catch Penn & Teller.

Realme 3 Selfie Samples From San Francisco

After so many days in Sin City, we flew ourselves to San Francisco, and checked ourselves into the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary!

Located just 1.25 miles or just over 2 km from the San Francisco, it served as a federal prison for 29 years. during which 36 prisoners tried to escape.

Ironically, hundreds of tourists now pay good money to visit Alcatraz every day! 😅

Welcoming us was Ray Hood, a volunteer with the US National Parks Service.

He commutes from Sacramento to help US Park Rangers like Wendy Solis here educate visitors on the rich history of Alcatraz, and to warn us about being “painted white” by the current avian occupants of Alcatraz…

Prison chow at Alcatraz did not agree with us, so we escaped on a boat and headed to the Fisherman’s Wharf, where Ernesto served us Boudin’s new crab chowder in a sourdough bowl!

I met Rodrigo “Roy” Gutierrez outside of Pier 33. He spray painted that piece for me in just 5 minutes! 🤩

Again, Auto HDR kicked in for a nicely exposed photo, even though it was a dastardly bright day.

While I was in San Francisco, I had my MacBook Pro checked out by Brennan Duong at Apple Store Union Square.

Finally, we had to stop by The Baked Bear for their humungous and really delicious ice-cream sandwiches! This is Sam with my 🐻tastic ice-cream sandwich!

That’s a 🐻 of an ice-cream sandwich! Not a 🐨 or a 🐼 but an actual 🐻… 😁

We originally planned to have one each, but it was so big – we had to share!
