#RIPJeffBezos is currently trending on Twitter at #1 position. The users were presented with the news that the Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has died after drowning in a river. Is Jeff Bezos Dead or Alive?
The rumors speculated that the richest person in the world Jeff Bezos, with a net worth of over $130 Billion, has died. Is this true?
The rumors are entirely false. The death hoax was created in order to defame him and probably to topple down the Amazon stocks.
On July 6, Amazon had hit an all-time high at the stocks market while all the other businesses were suffering due to the ongoing global pandemic. The richest man sold $4 Billion worth of stocks in only one week of February 2020, which added a few billion dollars to his net worth.
Everyone is bored during the lockdown, and what better way to entertain themselves than start a nationwide trend?
A similar trend focused on Ellen DeGeneres trended earlier this week. #RIPEllen had everyone going wild on the internet and look if she is actually dead or not. In the end, it turned out a hoax, and people were relieved to know that the American comedian is alive.
Initially, people were shocked to hear the news. But later on, the trend took a new path where people shared cool memes to mock Jeff Bezos.
What initially started as a piece of alleged heart-breaking news, took a different shape altogether after a while. People shared jokes and memes targeting Amazon’s future without Jeff.
People went on great lengths to picture that the upcoming CEO of Amazon will be bald and not necessarily rich. Some of the celebrities compared to the current CEO are Pitbull, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Michael Jordan, Johnny sins, etc.
RIP Jeff Bezos’s death hoax disturbed the people at first and they even criticized the trend-setters, but soon the trend showed how much people love Jeff Bezos all around the world.
Jeff Bezos is considered one of the greatest philanthropists after Bill Gates, he recently donated $100 Million to a food charitable organization Feeding America to help the poor and underprivileged survive the global pandemic.
Never let false claims get through your head, all they do is spread negativity and hatred.
