The youngest daughter of Bill Gates said that the worst thing about TikTok Are the many false opinions held about his family.
Phoebe Gates refers that she only sees “misconceptions and conspiracy theories” on the social network.
Theories and more
Bill Gates went from being the ingenious head of Microsoft to being one of the most hated people by a large number of conspiracy theorists. Conspiracy theories are all over the Internet and point the finger of blame for the new coronavirus pandemic at governments, 5G antennas and Gates, so after a long silence, the billionaire decided to speak out.
In a call with different journalists before a charity summit to fight measles and polio, Gates spoke out. “I’ve never been involved in any kind of microchipping,” he said, adding, “It’s almost hard to deny this because it’s so stupid or bizarre.”.
The now philanthropist warned of a global pandemic in 2015 in a TED talk. This, coupled with his fight to get a vaccine against COVID-19, has made him the center of conspiracy theories.
Phoebe has 64 thousand followers on TikTokwhere he posts pictures and videos with his parents: Bill Gates and Melinda French.
Phoebe is the youngest of the couple’s three children. She studies at Stanford University and has interned at British Vogue. She also uses her social media to talk about the need for sustainability in fashion.
“I’m pretty realistic that people start following me because of my family name. And people probably find it amusing to see my dad goofing around and playing Boxbollen,” Gates told The Information in an e-mail.
“But once they follow me, they stay, and I think some of that is because of the topics I post about, like women’s health. And, honestly, TikTok is fun,” he adds
