According to The Daily Beast, Fox News has cut ties with the pro-Trump duo Diamond & Silk for promoting conspiracy theories and disinformation about the coronavirus. The pair has contributed original content to the network’s streaming service Fox Nation after it launched in 2018.

“After what they’ve said and tweeted you won’t be seeing them on Fox Nation or Fox News anytime soon,” a source close to the matter told the Beast.

“No new episodes of their online program have been uploaded since April 7, as CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy first noted over the weekend,” the Beast’s Lachlan Cartwright and Justin Baragona report. “Prior to this month, the duo never missed a week posting episodes since December 2018.”
