Jones on Fisher

Carrie Fisher, best known for work as Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" films, suffered a now fatal heart attack while flying to Los Angeles from London on Friday. After the plane landed, Fisher was rushed to a local hospital. After her mother, Debbie Reynolds, announced that she was in stable condition, Fisher was pronounced dead on Tuesday. In the hours since the announcement was made, social media quickly went viral, as entertainers, athletes, politicians, and fans around the globe shared their memories of a star of one of the most popular film franchises in movie history.

However, the issue was discussed on the December 27 edition of "The Alex Jones Show," where the host had to raise questions about possible foul play.

As reported by Right Wing Watch on Tuesday, conspiracy theorist and host Alex Jones didn't appear totally convinced that Carrie Fisher died of a heart attack. "I'm not gonna kick off a conspiracy theory here, but you hear about star killers and different stars that say 'as soon as you're not big, as soon as you're name isn't as big, as soon as you're not making the money," Jones said, before adding, 'Look out when a big movie comes out you, or a big book, if you die though it will make it incredibly valuable."

"When that second hurrah comes around, and sometimes, especially the Mafia that's out in Hollywood, will kill you," Alex Jones pointed out.

Jones went on to claim the he has spoken to "high-profiled" people in Hollywood, who warned him that "indeed, this is something you'e really got to worry about it." Jones did note that Fisher appeared "old for her age" and that she was known to party hard with fellow "Star Wars" co-star Mark Hamill.

Jones views

In conclusion, Alex Jones left the death of Carrie Fisher an open question, comparing it the passing of comedian Joan Rivers, who the conspiracy theorist questioned whether or not her negative comments about Michelle Obama had anything to do with her death.

Jones has been in and out of the news as of late, being accused of promoting the debunked "Pizzagate conspiracy" about Hillary Clinton, which resulted in an armed gunman being arrested at the location. President-elect Donald Trump has also received backlash for appearing as a guest on Jones' show last year.
