Diamond and Silk

Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, better known as Diamond and Silk, are sisters, social media personalities, and political activists best known for their patriotism and the corresponding condemnations by leftist individuals and organizations, including Facebook. They endure frequent hatefully racist attacks from the left, such as radical leftist activist Bree Newsome describing them as “a modern-day minstrel show”

The duo received media attention during the 2016 campaign and again in April 2018 when Facebook notified them they were “unsafe to the community” due to their advocacy for patriotic causes. Formerly Democrats, they repented when Trump announced his candidacy on television. According to Hardaway, “When he announced and we heard everything that he stood for, it was on and poppin’, and we’ve been on the Trump train ever since.”

The duo regularly appears on Fox News shows as well as ABC’s Nightline. They are vocal critics of both the far-right and far-left for “spewing hate and … creating violence” declaring “all of them should be condemned and denounced. Period”.
