Three days before his death, Hormone shared that he was being placed on a ventilator and asked his followers to pray for him.
“If you don’t believe God can heal me on your stupid ventilator then keep hell away from my ICU room, there’s no room here for fear or lack of faith!” He wrote on Twitter.
Brian Houston, founder of Hulsong Church, paid tribute to Hormone, a former member of the Los Angeles Congregation.

Dr. Orn Friedman, who treats Cowid’s 10 patients at Cedars Sine Medical Center in Los Angeles, described the hormone death as “surprisingly disappointing.”
“Virtually every person who is getting sick enough to be hospitalized has not been vaccinated,” Friedman told KCBS-TV.
