A video posted by Belgian author and speaker Jean-Jacques Crèvecœur shows a montage of people who supposedly died after being vaccinated against COVID-19. The late rapper DMX, whose real name was Earl Simmons, and late television host Larry King are among the people included in the video.
The video’s caption reads, “This little video presents a few people who were nevertheless very proud to be vaccinated… It killed them…. A few tens of hundreds of thousands die or suffer from the side effects of these injections which are deceptively presented to us as vaccines. More than ever, these injections of genetically modified material put you at much greater risk than COVID itself.”
The video has over 5,300 reactions, 1,800 comments, and 11,000 shares, as of writing.
This is false.
DMX died after suffering a heart attack due to drug overdose, according to media reports. DMX also died at the age of 50, not 44. The video also claims he died on April 2, 2021, but he had only collapsed that day and died a week later on April 9.
Other famous personalities in the video are actress Ashley Taylor Gerren, popularly known as Gerren Taylor, and professional boxer Marvin Hagler. Hagler died of natural causes, while no verified source disclosed Taylor’s cause of death.
None of the other individuals mentioned in the video have been confirmed to have died due to the COVID-19 vaccine. While a number of individuals mentioned died after receiving the COVID-19 vaccines, investigations into whether the vaccines directly caused their deaths are still ongoing. Other individuals mentioned in the video died due to other causes and/or had the vaccines ruled out as their immediate cause of death.
