Marvelous Marvin Hagler has sadly passed away at the age of 66, his wife Kay Hagler said on Saturday.
The cause of death was not immediately known, until saw what Thomas “Hitman” Hearns had to say on social media.
About an hour before Hagler’s passing was announced, Thomas “Hitman” Hearns posted on Instagram, “A real true warrior Pray for the king and his family. He’s in ICU fighting the after effects of the vaccine! He’ll be just fine but we could use the positive energy and Prayer for his Full Recovery!”
That of course led to speculation about the COVID vaccine.
Boxing journalist Michelle Joy Phelps reposted what Hearns put on Instagram, and she was immediately attacked for it.
Phelps posted, “Just before Marvin Hagler’s Passing, Tommy Hearns said this is why he was in the ICU.”
Here’s how some reacted to it:
Hearns later posted about the issue himself. He said, “Allow us to have our peace…this is not an anti-vaccine campaign…it’s outrageous to have that in mind…”.
