Claudia Jordan Tweets "Rest in Paradise DMX" & Social Media Loses It


Recommended Posts

We haven't yet received a full update about DMX's recovery, but Claudia Jordan has reportedly created a firestorm online. We've been covering this DMX story since its inception after it was reported that the beloved rapper had suffered a heart attack as a result of a drug overdose. Dark Man X has struggled with addiction for decades and revealed only recently that it was his mentor who got him hooked. DMX shared that he was 14-years-old when he smoked a blunt laced with crack cocaine, unbeknownst to him, and it sent him down a path of addiction that he wasn't prepared for. Fans continue to cheer for DMX during his hospital stay and he's been applauded worldwide as prayers in dozens of languages have poured onto social media.

There have been differing reports regarding DMX's status, but his family and friends have honored the rapper by holding a vigil outside of the hospital. Tributes have covered social media platforms for days as everyone has banded together, hoping that DMX will soon return home. However, on Tuesday (April 6) evening, Fox Soul talk show host Claudia Jordan suggested that DMX has passed away.

A tweet that is no longer on her Twitter account began circulating. "Rest in Paradise DMX. [red heart emoji][crown emoji][praying hands emoji]," Jordan stated. Soon, panicked fans rushed online in disbelief, looking for confirmation from the rapper's family. Because an announcement hasn't arrived, fans aren't giving up hope. They are, however, giving Jordan grief. Later, she responded, "I'm sorry."

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that DMX is scheduled for more tests this week and he's still on life support. Check out a few responses below.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
