They are sisters named Lynnette Hardaway (and Rochelle Richardson) and are well-known for their support for President Donald Trump. The campaigns garnered more media attention for the sisters in 2016 after they claimed that Facebook had notified them that they were “Unsafe to be with the Community”.

During Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony, Republican Congress members brought Diamond and Silk censorship claims to the U.S. Congress. Since 2018, the Chit Chat Tour has taken the two sisters across the country.
