Ineitha Lynnette Hardaway, aka “Diamond”, of the iconic conservative sister duo ‘Diamond and Silk‘ has tragically passed away at the age of 51.
Ineitha and her sister Herneitha Rochelle Hardaway Richardson, aka “Silk”, were popular live-stream bloggers, conservative political activists, and Newsmax and FrankSpeech.com hosts.
Donald Trump released a statement on her passing tonight on Truth Social. He wrote,
“Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, ALL Americans. Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina. Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing. There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out. Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!”
The Diamond and Silk Twitter account tweeted out an announcement of Diamond’s untimely passing, saying, “The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity! Please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family! Memorial Ceremony TBA.”

Back in 2018, the sisters appeared before Congress and bravely stood up against Facebook’s censorship of conservative news and media outlets. They destroyed Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson who tried to shame them for monetizing their Facebook content, holding strong to their pro-Trump beliefs, and defending their right as Americans to freedom of speech and to express their own political opinions without retaliation or penalty.
When Johnson tried putting them down for supporting Trump and making money off of their social media pages, Diamond shut him down with a brilliant response, saying, “Yes because that’s what it’s all about. It’s supposed to be about obtaining the American dream. We are African-American women, and if illegal aliens can come over here and build businesses, why can’t we? And we were born on this soil!”
“You’re not gonna brush us off and dismiss us like we don’t have merit here,” she continued. “These people censor us for no reason. They put limitations on our page for no reason, and that is wrong!”
Today, the United States lost a true inspiration who made it her mission to defend her rights as an American citizen and showed us all what it means to be a patriot.
