According to Newsone the reports of Kevin Samuels‘ death that flooded social media timelines everywhere offered no immediate verification that the 56-year-old died as his faithful followers demanded proof.
As a result, Samuels’ name became a top trending topic on Twitter on Thursday afternoon as people tried to sort out the facts.
My #RolandMartinUnfiltered @BlkStarNetwork has been working to confirm whether social media influencer Kevin Samuels has passed away. We reached out to the Fulton County Medical Examiners and was told they “could not confirm or deny” they have someone named Kevin Samuels there.

The Instagram account for Plug Talk claimed Samuels died from “cardiac arrest,” but the post offered no verification of its report.
Other Instagram accounts quickly latched on to that same narrative without offering any confirmation.
It appears that the reports of Samuels’ death originated from a single social media post in which there are claims he died Thursday morning.
The reactions to Samuels’ alleged death have teetered between gleeful exuberance from women who have taken offense to his slanderous misogynoir and caution from those who wanted to know more.
kevin samuels made a career off of bashing women and upholding oppressive gender standards and y’all want us to take the high road when we find out he passed away

I don’t believe Kevin Samuels is dead, for the record. But me not feeling bad if he is doesn’t mean I’m “celebrating” it. He went out of his way to be cruel.
We are not required to mourn virtues he didn’t show. And asking black women, of all ppl, to show tact is audacious

Regardless of if this Kevin Samuels news is true or not, you gotta be an evil MF to cheer for someone’s death because you don’t like some of the things they’ve said

As mentioned above Kevin’s good friend Anton Daniels confirmed his death on Instagram, noting that he does not do rumors.
