As TvShowsAce previously reported, food writer Julie Powell was confirmed dead today by her publisher. Her husband Eric later told media outlets his wife had died of cardiac arrest. Chills are tingling down the spines of the food writer’s fans as they dig into her eerie Twitter activity during the final month of her life.
Just a few days before her passing, Julie took to Twitter to tweet something truly disturbing related to her health. She added that her doctors wrote it off as no big deal. She passed away just a few days later. Taking screenshots, retweeting, and leaving comments, many of the food writer’s followers are raising their eyebrows at her sudden death. And, they are seriously questioning if cardiac arrest is really what ended her life.
Why was her final tweet so disturbing?
On October 25, just one week before her death, Julie Powell tweeted something truly disturbing about a condition she woke up with. She penned in her final tweet: “So I woke up with something that’s literally Black Hairy Tongue. People, including my doctor, seem to think it’s no big deal, and will go away soon, but it certainly is gross.” The original tweet can be seen down below:

Her tweet has accumulated over 100 replies (which is way more than what her tweets usually accumulate). Most of the replies are quick to point out how eerie the tweet is because she died just a few days later.
One individual penned in response to the tweet: “Her doctor thought it was no big deal and she died the next day.”
“This is disturbing to read after seeing Ms. Powell’s obituary. My condolences to her family.” Another chimed in.
Turns out the loveable blogger in the movie "Julie and Julia" (played by Amy Adams) isn't loveable after all
"The Unclean are assholes, but noble me won't give them Covid!"
Also, "My husband has Covid and I probably do too."

Julie Powell had COVID recently
Digging deeper into her activity on Twitter, her fans learned she had suffered from COVID roughly a month prior. Her Twitter activity suggested she never fully recovered and got struck down with the flu as well. While current reports claim she died of a heart attack, those reading her Twitter activity say they can’t ignore the fact that she died so soon after having COVID.
One frustrated individual penned in a tweet regarding her death a few hours ago: “This. Is. Not. Normal.”
Julie Powell, the blogger of "Julie & Julia" fame, tweeted this and died the next day. She was 49.
Her husband said it was from a heart attack. But her Twitter feed shows she had COVID in September and had been feeling ill ever since.

Another individual tweeted it was painfully obvious that she died of long COVID.
So is anyone going to talk about how Julie Powell had SARS-CoV-2 for much of September and then in October had a bout of "flu" and then, at 49, died of cardiac arrest. Nothing to see here, right? #vasculardamage #longcovid

Very sad to read about the death of author Julie Powell at only 49 due to cardiac arrest on 26 October. Very disturbing to read on this very platform her tweets about prolonged and worsening symptoms after covid. We need to fully support clinically people with #LongCovid https://t.co/oEJB3MOMrI

Outraged, many of the food writer’s followers begged Julie Powell’s husband to look deeper into her death for answers.
Rest in peace, Julie Powell.
