HASagreeing to reports, Kevin Samuelsa self-proclaimed relationship guru and image consultant who is best known for his misogynistic comments about black women, in particular, has died.
However, it has not been verified that the 56-year-old died. As a result, Samuels’ name became a trending topic on Twitter Thursday afternoon as people attempted to set the record straight.
Plug Talk’s Instagram account claimed Samuels died of “cardiac arrest,” but the post did not offer verification of its report. Other Instagram accounts quickly latched onto that same narrative without offering any confirmation.
It appears that the reports of Samuels’ death originated from a single social media post claiming he died Thursday morning.
Samuels has had no social media activity
Samuels’ Instagram account included a video she posted Wednesday afternoon in which he talks about “modern women” and reflects on whether they are “a party of 1.”
That was Samuels’ most recent social media activity, as his Facebook had not been updated since at least Tuesday. His final tweet was posted in April, but that post was linked to his Instagram. The last video he posted on his YouTube channel was about the aforementioned “Modern Women” and was published at the same time as the Instagram post on Wednesday.
Samuels is considered misogynistic
Samuels has gained a following through the way he addresses black women. His image consulting agency works with “men who want to improve their appearance,” according to his website.
He was in the news recently for all the wrong reasons for describing women who are at least 35 and not married as leftover women.
“If you made it to 35 and you’re not married, you’re a leftover woman,” Samuels said on her podcast last month. “You’re what’s left over. Men know there’s probably something wrong with you. Whether you want to hear it or not, I’m going there with you. I’m telling you the truth you don’t want to hear. Men know there’s probably something wrong with you. And here’s the thing: when you were 22 to 25 years old and you didn’t want to settle, you were trying to get the CEO, the pilot, the investment banker, what you were trying to get flew out the door…”
Samuels then asked one woman, “What do you think about sharing a man?” to which she replied, “I’m fine with that, because, if they’re going to mess with other womenI’m going to do what I want to dotoo.”
Predictably, Samuels responded, “No, no, that’s not how it works: you share your man and you sit down.”
