Diamond & Silk Blast Mark Zuckerberg For Saying Facebook Reached Out to Them: ‘That Was a Lie’

Outspoken Trump supporters Diamond and Silk appeared on The Ingraham Angle after they were mentioned numerous times on Capitol Hill this week during Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg‘s testimony to lawmakers.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) grilled the tech giant after the pro-Trump duo blasted the social media site for deeming them as “unsafe for the community.”

They began by expressing gratitude for all the support they’ve received in recent days and were happy that Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook made an “error” by cracking down on them. However, they still want to talk directly with him so he can “rectify” the situation  “make this right.”

Diamond and Silk, whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, pushed back at Zuckerberg’s assertion to Congress that Facebook reached out to them after the ordeal.

“We have not been in communication with Facebook,” Hardaway said. “We have not been contacted. We haven’t spoken to anyone over the phone. So that was a lie.”

They blasted the blog The Grio, which accused them of being “Fox News puppets” that are “viral court jesters” who “dance” for President Trump and his administration. Hardaway insisted that they were simply being used as “clickbait” by the site.

Diamond and Silk also commented on Roseanne Barr defending them but corrected her after she called them “comedians.”

“I don’t think that we’re comedians,” Hardaway told Laura Ingraham. “What we say may be comical or may be funny, but we really be telling the truth. We’re trying not to be so funny, but it comes out funny.”
