Conspiracy Theorists Are Freaking Out Over Bill And Melinda Gates' Divorce

Not even 24 hours after Bill and Melinda Gates announced their divorce and the QAnon conspiracy theories are already flying around.

The Microsoft founder has taken the brunt of certain ideas in the past, particularly over the last few months after some people began believing the coronavirus vaccination is actually the tech billionaire planting a trackable microchip inside people.

So upon announcing their separation, it's probably not come as much of a surprise that QAnon supporters have made a start on decoding their split in an attempt to figure out what's really going on here.

One of the more dominant of the theories is that the divorce has come as a result of Melinda Gates actually being male.

One comment reads: "The current version of 'Melinda' Gates is a dude, change my mind."

Another says: "Bill and Melinda Gates are getting a divorce. I'm sure he's going to really miss that dude. Bill that is."

Some people just weren't up to taking in all of the information and, posting on QAnon's GreatAwakening message board, wrote: "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD - STOP POSTING ABOUT THE GATES DIVORCE."

Another idea from people is that the divorce is actually a ruse to protect their huge fortune. One wrote: "FOLLOW THE MONEY. They divorce to secure some of their money, for when Bill Gates has his money seized by Trump for crimes against humanity, IMO."

Back in 2010, the couple announced they would be giving around 95 percent of their colossal fortune (around $127 billion/£91bn) away, launching the Giving Pledge, which saw a number of high-profile billionaires promise to share their wealth.

At the time, Melinda said in a statement: "Philanthropy is different around the world, but almost every culture has a long-standing tradition of giving back.

"Bill and Warren [Buffett] and I are excited to welcome the new, very international group of philanthropists joining the Giving Pledge, and we look forward to learning from their diverse experiences."
