It appears the conspiracy theories pertaining to Damar Hamlin aren’t about to go away following the safety’s collapse due to cardiac arrest earlier this year.
Hamlin has been out of hospital for several weeks and has made a few public appearances since, yet some people on the internet insist he died on that fateful night in January and has been cloned.
The discussion intensified after the Buffalo Bills player was interviewed by Michael Strahan on Good Morning America this week. Asked by Strahan whether he remembers getting up after tackling Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins, Hamlin took a lengthy pause.

“That’s something I don’t really want to get too deep into the detail of,” he said after regaining his composure. “It’s something I’m still trying to work through. You know, ‘Why’d it happen to me?’”
Strahan also asked the player how doctors described what happened to him that night.
“Um… that’s something I want to say way from,” he replied.
“Honestly, no. I’ve always been a healthy, young, fit, energetic human being, let alone – an athlete,” he said after the host asked whether anything strange had surfaced from previous medical exams. “It’s something that we’re still processing and still talking through with my doctors just to see what everything was.”
Some fans have wondered whether Hamlin was told not to answer questions of such nature.
“That was strange. Wonder who told him not to answer that?” a Twitter user wrote, while another tweeted, “Yeah, it means he got a pay out and signed an NDA.”
What makes this particularly interesting is the fact that Hamlin’s own teammate, wide receiver Cole Beasley, liked a tweet pushing the conspiracy theory.
“Damar Hamlin says that he wants to ‘stay away from’ answering questions about what happened to him on the field since he was in perfect health,” it reads. “I think we all know what that means.”
If there was any chance of this going away soon, Beasley’s social media activity has probably made it a bit more difficult.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
