Alan Komissaroff, the senior vice president at Fox News Media, recently passed away, aged 47, just two weeks after suffering a heart attack. Netizens have since taken to social media speculating that his death was from the Covid vaccine.

In a GoFundMe, Alan Komissaroff's wife, Rachael, revealed that she called 911, and he sadly died while paramedics were taking him to the hospital. The campaign revealed that he slipped into a coma and never woke up again.

Alan Komissaroff joined the news outlet in 1996 when it launched under the company name 21st Century Fox Corp. He worked his way to the top and oversaw the coverage of politics, including the network's busy Election Night reporting.

@simonateba Be like Africa, don’t take that shot
@simonateba When will Fox reporters start to investigate the vax? Or is the independent media still the only ones willing to do it?
@BretBaier @FoxNews To young, Hope it’s not like so many others they say are due to the covid shots. People beware as many are dying. Don’t know if the shot has anything to with it. I hope not. If sod God help them all🙏🙌
