Coronavirus: Keri Hilson says 5G causes COVID-19, Twitterati think she's either 'on cocaine or stupid'
Keri Hilson is trending on Twitter currently and it is not for anything remotely related to her professional career. She tweeted that COVID-19 is caused by 5G and users have slammed her, calling her 'stupid'.
"People have been trying to warn us about 5G for YEARS. Petitions, organizations, studies...what we’re going thru is the affects (sic) of radiation. 5G launched in CHINA. Nov 1, 2019. People dropped dead," she tweeted. Kery also attached screenshots that explained the origins of 5G and its dangers. One of the screenshots also contained a news article about a 2019 Netflix documentary wherein Bill Gates warned against a pandemic that would originate from China.
She later on attached a video from another user, which explained how 5G = Corona. "I also hv a friend who’s been showing me youtubes over the past year on the physical/human affects (sic) of 4 & 5G. Researched for myself today re: COVID19...connections were quite peculiar. And after all I’ve read, believable", wrote Keri in the caption.
She didn't stop at that. "And to be clear, I’m saying there have been lots of studies & experiments that point to the possibility that the dangerous levels of of electromagnetic radiation (5G) could be CAUSING the contagious virus," Keri added.
Twitter was quick to reward Keri for her theory of the year. "You don't seem to understand radiation, viruses, or studies." tweeted a user while another post read, "Girl, you STILL going. log off LMFAOO".
A concerned user tweeted, "It’s definitely not time to be spreading wild conspiracy theories. Especially ones that are definitely not true. Spreading this kind of misinformation is stupid".
"That's not how viruses work sis. Didn't you take biology in middle school?" read another tweet. Another fan is positive that Keri is under the influence of cocaine.
Continuing her theories, Keri tweeted, "Why do you think the virus is not happening in Africa like that? Not a 5G region. There may be a few bases there, but not as prevalent as other countries. It has nothing to do w/ melanin (for those theories)..."
This is not the first time Keri has faced backlash online. In 2011, at the Soul Train Music Awards, Keri refused to pose with the edition of the magazine. which featured Beyonce and Jay-Z on the cover. Beyonce fans, or 'Beyhive' as they are called, went on relentlessly to troll Keri for demeaning their idol. It didn't take much time for Keri to crack under all the hate that she received and she took to Twitter to request an end to this.
Currently, Keri is working towards making a comeback to the music world. However, judging by her recent tweets, it doesn't look great for Keri at the moment. What do you think about Keri's theory about coronavirus? Let us know in the comments below.
