Aretha Franklin Suggests That The Zika Virus Killed Prince

As the world is still reeling over the death of Prince, a legendary songstress is offering her take on his passing.

Aretha Franklin called in to MSNBC Thursday to comment on the singer’s untimely death and speculated that perhaps the Zika virus killed him.

Oh Aretha…

“They’re saying flu-like symptoms,” said Franklin. “I’m wondering if it has anything to do with this Zika virus.

According to the CDC people very rarely die from Zika virus and it’s most damaging to pregnant women.

The CDC reports:

People usually don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika. For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected. However, Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause a serious birth defect called microcephaly, as well as other severe fetal brain defects.

We can’t even be mad at Auntie Aretha, she sounds like someone’s skeptical grandma….


What do YOU think about Aretha’s Prince comments???
