Kate Middleton and the ongoing rumors of cancer

Despite Kate Middleton revealing her health struggles, conspiracy theorists continue to spread their theories online. While some users have apologized for their previous comments about her, the Guardian reports that the conspiracy theories have not subsided. The hashtag #Kategate saw a surge in mentions, reaching 400 at its peak. BrandMentions, a social media monitoring company, noted that mentions increased from the previous weekend.

Conspiracy theories are popular on various platforms including Twitter, Instagram and TikTok. A video posted on TikTok, viewed over 200 thousand times in one day, claims that the announcement made by the future British queen may have been manipulated with the help of artificial intelligence. The BBC confirmed the authenticity of the footage, stating that Kate was filmed by a crew from the broadcaster.

Professor Quassim Cassam, an expert in conspiracy theories at Warwick University explains that rumors can often be fueled by evidence that disproves them. Conspiracy theories are resilient because the evidence is seen as part of the conspiracy. Some individuals spread conspiracies for entertainment purposes according to Whitney Phillips, an expert on digital platforms and ethics at Oregon University.

Both experts believe that Kate hoaxes will eventually fade as new conspiracy theories emerge on different topics. Phillips notes that speculation and theories can be entertaining or serve as a distraction for participants without considering its impact on those involved. Despite efforts to dispel hoaxes, they persist and continue to circulate online.

In conclusion, even after Kate Middleton shared her health concerns with her fans and media outlets around the world; there are still those who choose to spread false information about her using social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter. It is important for people to fact-check any information they encounter online before spreading it further and causing harm or distress to others involved in such incidents.
