BUTwriting in reports Kevin SamuelsThe self-proclaimed relationship guru and image consultant who is best known for his misogynistic comments, in particular about black women, has died.
However, it has not been confirmed that the 56-year-old man died. As a result, Samuels’ name became Actual topic on Twitter on Thursday afternoon as people tried to clear things up.
The Plug Talk Instagram account claimed that Samuels died of “heart failure“, but the message did not offer confirmation of its message. Other Instagram accounts quickly jumped at the same narrative without offering any confirmation.
Reports of Samuels’ death appear to have come from a single social media post claiming that he died Thursday morning.
Samuels has not been active on social media.
Samuels’ Instagram account contained a video she posted on Wednesday afternoon in which he talks about “modern women” and muses on whether they are “a party of one”.
It was Samuels’ last social media activity, as his Facebook hadn’t been updated since at least Tuesday. His last tweet was in April, but this post was linked to his Instagram. The latest video he posted on his YouTube channel was dedicated to the aforementioned “Modern Women” and was published at the same time as the Instagram post on Wednesday.
Samuels is considered a misogynist
Samuels has gained a following through the way he addresses black women. His image consulting the agency works with “men who want to improve their looks,” according to its website.
He was in the news recently for all the wrong reasons he was describing unmarried women over 35 as “leftovers” women.
“If you’ve lived past 35 and are single, you’re a remnant woman,” Samuels said on her podcast last month. “You are what is left. Men know that something is probably wrong with you. Whether you want to hear it or not, I’m going there with you. I’m telling you the truth that you don’t want to hear. Men know that there is probably something wrong with you. CEO, pilot, 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 will do what i wanttoo much.”
As expected, Samuels replied, “No, no, it’s not: you share your man and sit down.”
