Fox News has "cut ties" with pro-Trump conservative comediennes Diamond & Silk, according to the Daily Beast blog. The duo recently appeared on Fox's streaming network, Fox Nation.

The news comes after Diamond & Silk were locked out of their Twitter account for telling people to go outside to become immune to Covid-19.

The pair recently rankled liberals by appearing to question whether Covid-19 was part of an elaborate hoax to undermine President Trump.

"What I need to know is how many people have passed away in New York, and what I need to know is: Who has the bodies?" Diamond said during a March 30th livestream. "I need for somebody that does investigative work to call the morgues, to call the funeral homes. Something's not right here. Something is off here."

Diamond added: "Is this being deliberately spread? Look, I'm not being a conspiracy theorist, this is real, but I'm asking my own questions. What the hell is going on?"

One unnamed source told the Daily Beast that it is unlikely Diamond & Silk will appear on Fox News in the near future.

The duo became right-wing darlings when they professed their admiration for President Trump and took on anyone who criticized him on their popular YouTube channel.

But they have faced scorn, contempt and disdain from those on the left who oppose their political views and their loyalty to Trump.

Social media conservative activists Diamond and Silk were locked out of their Twitter account for advising their 1.4 million followers to go outside and stop quarantining.

The Fox Nation hosts, real names Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, sent out a tweet telling followers to go outside to become immune to the coronavirus.

"The only way we can become immune to the environment; we must be out in the environment. Quarantining people inside of their houses for extended periods will make people sick!"

Twitter banned the comediennes from the microblogging platform on Wednesday.

A Twitter spokesperson told Mediaite.com: "The tweet is in violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. The account will be locked until the account owner removes the tweet."

Twitter has been accused of censoring or locking the accounts of conservative users or permanently banning users who don't support their liberal ideologies.
