Herman Cain died in July after being hospitalized for over a month after testing positive for COVID-19, so it was extra strange that his old Twitter account sent a tweet on Sunday denouncing the deadliness of COVID-19.
“It looks like the virus is not as deadly as the mainstream media first made it out to be,” the tweet said, which included a retweet of an article from West Journal entitled “CDC Now Says 94% of COVID Deaths Had an Underlying Condition.”
No, Cain wasn’t tweeting from beyond the grave. The account is now run by his family and social media managers, according to The Huffington Post. Even so, the now-deleted tweet received instant backlash.
“This is the sassiest, ‘Surprise! I’m a zombie now!’ announcement ever,” Patton Oswalt tweeted.
“Can we dig Herman up and have independent doctors confirm this? PS: Do you know how f*cking creepy it is that you continue to tweet from his account?” Don Winslow tweeted.
