As Damar Hamlin continues to recover from a serious medical emergency that occurred during a Monday Night Football game, disturbing rumors and insensitive jokes have surfaced. One such instance came from former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Jim Breuer, who made tasteless jokes about the situation during a conservative Christian event called the ReAwaken America Tour. In the middle of making jokes about vaccines and being called a conspiracy theorist, Breuer made a reference to Hamlin’s cardiac arrest incident, causing audience members to be uncomfortable.
Damar Hamlin is still alive?
Adding to the absurdity, rumors have also emerged that Hamlin could have a body double. This speculation arose after Hamlin attended a divisional playoff matchup wearing a mask, hoodie, and sunglasses, leading some to believe that it was not actually the 24-year-old player. These claims have been debunked and have been deemed as disrespectful to the player who is still recovering from his medical emergency.
Hamlin was discharged from a Buffalo hospital on January 11, after spending a week at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. He was on a ventilator before his release. It’s important to note that making jokes or spreading rumors about someone who is recovering from a serious medical incident is insensitive and disrespectful. It’s also important to respect the privacy and well-being of the player during this difficult time.
