A bonkers hoax video about Bill Gates has been making the rounds on social media — and it’s setting the anti-vaxx conspiracy world on fire.
The video claims to show Gates briefing the CIA in 2005 about a vaccine to immunize religious fanatics.
The video, which is obviously faked, is getting gobbled up by online conspiracy theorists who’ve latched onto the Microsoft co-founder as the mastermind behind the coronavirus pandemic.
One version of the video had amassed close to 37,000 views in just a few days.
The pixelated video shows a man who looks vaguely like Gates (but sounds nothing like him) giving a presentation to an audience of about six people.
While the Gates video isn’t specifically about coronavirus, it’s being shared to bolster unscientific claims about the origin of the virus.
