TEMPE, Arizona (LifeSiteNews) —A stand-up comedian collapsed on stage Saturday night just after celebrating the fact that she was triple-vaxxed and “never got COVID.” 

“I don’t mean to brag, but I don’t care, I want you to know, double vaxxed, booster, flu shot, and, I’m gonna be honest, I have the shingles shot, too,” Heather McDonald, a pop-culture commentator, said on stage at the beginning of her comedy show in Tempe, Arizona. 

“Traveled, went to Mexico twice, did shows, meet and greets, never got COVID,” she continued.  

“Clearly, Jesus loves me the most. Seriously,” she said before beginning to sway, stumble forward and then fall to the floor. 

Warning: potentially upsetting scene

The audience can be heard laughing after she fell, apparently thinking it was part of her act. 

USA Today reported that the comedian suffered a skull fracture from her fall. McDonald said during her “Juicy Scoop” podcast on Tuesday that this had  “caused some bleeding” but that she “was already starting to heal.”  

McDonald shared in a video posted Monday by TMZ, “I’ve never ever fainted in my life.” 

A Sunday post from her Facebook page clarified that “She had consumed no alcohol prior to or during the show.” 

“Thus far the tests have revealed no underlying medical issues that may have precipitated this event,” the post stated, adding, “Approximately 3 weeks ago Heather had her COVID booster.” 

McDonald’s management told NBC12 News that “She may have lost consciousness because of dehydration.  

On Wednesday, McDonald posted footage of the incident to her Instagram page with the caption: “I fainted on stage and fractured my skull in front of a sold out show at the @tempeimprov What do you think caused it? #karma #Jesus #comedy #juicyscoop #standup #covid 

Her overlaid TikTok caption read, “When you faint on stage after you brag about being vaccinated.”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) commits genocide (the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region), has committed forced abortions (the one-child policy), allowed COVID to be spread across the world with their lies, allows dangerous sweatshops to operate, and suppresses their people's freedoms and faith (think of Hong Kong and, separately, the persecution of Christians, Muslims and member of Falun Gong).

The CCP is an evil organization and needs to be stopped!

Please SIGN and pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, rather than give your hard-earned money to the lying, COVID-spreading, genocidal, abortion-forcing, freedom-suppressing Chinese Communist Party.

With the Beijing Olympics now underway, the CCP is only interested in one thing: gaining the respect and admiration of the rest of the world.

But, the CCP is only deserving of disgrace and rebuke, not respect or admiration.

So, we must raise our voices against their shameful lies, murders and reign of tyranny. And, we must also do what can to hit them where it hurts -- in the pocketbook!

Please SIGN and pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, rather than give your hard-earned money to the lying, genocidal, abortion-forcing, freedom-suppressing Chinese Communist Party.

Pledging to buy local, or to buying products from anywhere but China, might present a challenge as everyone will have to make a concerted effort to look at the labels of their purchases, and maybe pay a little more for a product made outside China.

But, this is something which every man, woman and child can do to protest the manifest evil which the Chinese Communist Party, as distinct from the Chinese people, is responsible for.

Please SIGN and pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, rather than give your hard-earned money to the lying, genocidal, abortion-forcing, freedom-suppressing Chinese Communist Party.

Is Main Street America or High Street Europe, with their lockdowns, censorship, and mandates looking more and more like China because we have allowed ourselves to become addicted to communist labor?

Have we allowed cheap goods to take over liberty and justice?

This is not a partisan issue, this is about a way of life that ensures a dignified future for workers around the world versus a totalitarian communist system that floods the world with cheap goods and evil ideology…

It's time we put our money where our mouth is, and buy local rather than give our money to the CCP.

Thank you for SIGNING this pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, or at least try to purchase products not made in China. After signing, please consider SHARING with your like-minded friends, family, parishioners and colleagues.

One YouTube user commented on the footage of McDonald’s collapse, “They do say timing is the key to comedy. This is hands down the hardest I’ve ever seen someone get slapped in the face by irony.” 

McDonald recently posted a video of herself in the hospital two days after her fall, showing two completely black eyes (warning: profanity). She said they are most likely due to the physical impact of hitting her head, according to USA Today. 

On Tuesday the comedian shared that she felt “slightly weird” shortly before coming onstage, but moved ahead with her skit anyway. Soon after, she said she began feeling dizzy, and she recalled thinking, “Wow … this better pass soon. I don’t know how I’m going to do the rest of my act for like an hour.” 

In an Instagram story that has since expired, McDonald promised to return to the Tempe, Arizona venue to complete the show. She was on stage for only three minutes Saturday night. 

Unexplained collapses and deaths, particularly among athletes, have spiked over the past year, as have Vaccine Adverse Event Reports (VAERS). In fact, a graph on the official VAERS website shows a tremendous spike in reported vaccine adverse events coinciding with the rollout of COVID shots, as compared to VAERS for the entire past couple of decades.
