Boston Woman Desperately Seeks Media Attention Despite Not Having Coronavirus With Misleading Viral Facebook Post
A Boston yoga instructor turned pothead professional named Hillary King has been desperately seeking attention as a potential coronavirus patient, despite not being treated as one by doctors.
In a desperate, attention seeking post that has gotten thousands of shares on Facebook, yesterday Hillary made it clear that she really, really wants to get coronavirus.
TL;DR – she has a sore throat and a cough, but wants you to think it’s worse, so she fed off the Wuhan virus hysteria by pretending that her simple cough was actually a viral virus. She wasn’t tested for the Wuhan virus because she hasn’t had contact with anyone afflicted with it and doesn’t meet the standards to be tested for the disease.
She’s also wearing a dust mask in the picture. If they suspected her of having the Red Chinese Wuhan virus she’d have a surgical mask on that loops around the ears.
A hospital would also never give you a dust mask if you complained about shortness of breath.
If she was really sick and in the hospital for days she probably wouldn’t have flawless make up on either.
She’s also edited her post 11 times as the shares keep coming.
She claims a doctor told her she had symptoms of the virus but couldn’t test her for it because the hospital “has no testing kits at the time,” despite the fact that Charlie Baker announced yesterday that the state has 5,000 test kits available.
Baker said that, even though the state has now received the ability to process testing for an additional 5,000 people, the samples must still go through the state lab in Jamaica Plain.
But besides that her story checks out completely.
I call Karen Coronavirus a professional pothead because literally everything she posts on her Facebook is about pot, and she calls herself a cannibas consultant.
You know who else is a cannibas consultant? Me. Come smoke me up and then I’ll testify in front of the State Legislature about how high it got me. This is a job.
As a result of her viral post she’s gained a lot of eyeballs on her Facebook page, so she wisely began to direct traffic towards her show “Weed Talk Live” that no one watches besides her an a couple stoner friends.
I’ve never before seen a human being want to have a disease like this woman wants to have coronavirus.
Here’s an idea – maybe you have a cough because you smoke entirely too much weed. Not that I’m against weed, because I like weed. But if everything in your life seems to revolve around weed, you might want to look into alternative hobbies. Just sayin.
She really tried to milk this for media attention and eventually got it from WBZ, but even David E. Wade knew that something didn’t smell right:
“When I woke up, I had a bad cough and sort of a feeling, like shortness of breath,” Hillary King said via FaceTime from her home in the North End. She’s worried she has coronavirus, and even though she wants to be tested, the answer was ‘no.’
It happened Wednesday night as her symptoms worsened. Now she’s home, in self isolation, but still without an answer. “I started feeling a tickle in my throat on Monday,” she explained. Hillary didn’t think much of it at first, but by Wednesday, she was worse with a nasty cough and trouble breathing. So she called her health insurer. “They recommended that I go to urgent care or the ER,” she said.
Her next step was to call the closest hospital. “After speaking to somebody at the ER at Mass Gen, they told me to come down,” she said. They immediately gave her a mask. “And the chairs for the patients were spaced out, six feet apart, in all directions,” she explained. “They listened to my lungs. They said it sounded clear. They took my temp. No fever.”
But her cough was bad and she says her doctor wanted to test her for the coronavirus, but couldn’t do it because she didn’t meet the criteria. She hadn’t traveled to a hot spot zone overseas or been in direct contact with someone with a confirmed case. “If you don’t meet one of those they will not test you right now because they only have so many tests and they’re saving them for folks who do meet that criteria,” she said.
Hillary was eventually sent home where she plans to stay, alone, for at least 14 days. “It’s really scary to think about that I could have been asymptomatic but contagious,” she said. “That’s why I’d really like to know and get tested and find out if that’s what it is.”
Listen to what David E. Wade says at the end of the video:
“We need to make it crystal clear that there are trained professionals who decided that she wasn’t eligible or they didn’t think she needed the tests, so this is just her side of the story.”
Translation – we know this woman’s just looking for attention, but we’re in the news industry so we are too. We mean no offense to the medical professionals who this woman is completely ignoring in her desperate attempt to become a viral victim of a viral virus.
