Damar Hamlin Death: Damar Hamlin, a safety for the Buffalo Bills, suffered a heart collapse following a tackle earlier this month and was on the verge of passing out. Thankfully, he is now healing, but almost yearly, conspiracy theorists disseminate allegations that the 24-year-old is actually a body double who was killed by the vaccine.
Hamlin made his first public appearance on January 22 during a matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. Some people, nevertheless, believed that he was hiding something sinister. Jack Posobiec, a verified Twitter user, tweeted, “Why didn’t the NFL let us see Damar Hamlin’s face?” Posobiec has over a million followers. Four million people have viewed the tweet.
I’m sorry, but this Damar Hamlin episode at the Bills stadium is beyond questionable, tweeted Vidmax.com, a blue check publication. Why did he always wear his ski mask and why wasn’t his family in the box with him? What the heck is going on? The hashtags #bodydouble, #damarhamlim, #conspiracytheory, and #VaccineDeaths were used in the tweet.
Another verified user named Andrew Rose, whose twitter bio reads, “MAGA. Republican. Patriot. Proudly unvaccinated,” tweeted, “Damar Hamlin died from the vaccine. The NFL faked his injury for a money scheme and to shut down the narrative. That’s why they refuse to show his face. Wake. Up.” He also accused Hamlin of using “Illuminati signs.”
Hamlin is taking the ludicrous conspiracy theory in stride, he tweeted, “Clone” with a photo of himself.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen also blasted the lies, saying on Kyle Brandt’s Basement podcast, “So yes that was Damar. There’s absolutely zero chance, there is absolutely zero chance. He’s Damar Hamlin. That’s our guy. That’s our brother. He was with us — pregame, postgame. He was up in the suite with his family, his little brother, 100 percent. So people need to stop that s**t.”
In case you missed it, on Jan. 2, the sixth-round draft pick made a routine tackle against Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. Hamlin stood up when the play ended but collapsed on the field seconds later. He received CPR for approximately minutes before being transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in critical condition. Although he suffered lung damage and his heart was resuscitated twice, Hamlin survived. He was discharged from the hospital on Jan. 11 and fans are hoping he will make a full recovery.
Just yesterday (Jan. 24), Damar Hamlin tweeted, “Thankful for all the GENUINE love, thoughts & prayers from all across the world.. y’all will hear from me soon!”
