A fake story is spreading via social media that claims George Soros has died. The story claims his body was discovered in a Burj al Arab hotel in Dubai.
The story appeared on the website redlinepage.com, which reads in part –
Literally a few hours ago the world was in shock – George Soros was dead! He was found dead in the Burj al Arab hotel in Dubai. He was 87 years old.
From what we now know, the cause of death was heart attack. The death of a Jewish billionaire caused a huge stir in Dubai. The whole hotel was surrounded by the police and the army in just over an hour and a half. All guests in the hotel are prohibited from leaving until the end of the matter. Nobody can enter it. The UAE authorities are already in place, and even Jacob Rothschild has appeared on one of the journalists.
At 11:30 AM, George Soros was to meet Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Makotum. He did not appear at the meeting. Concerned by this situation, the sheikh went to the Burj al-Arab hotel where Soros had recently been staying. From one of the consignees, he learned that he had never been a sign of life since last night! Mohammed ordered him to enter his room and check what had happened. There he saw him dead, lying beside the bed. He immediately alarmed the hotel manager and called the ambulance. But it was too late … George Soros had been dead for many hours
Despite the claims in the story, George Soros is still very much alive. The article has been kicking around the Internet for a number of days now, and as such the fact that Soros tweeted from his social media Twitter account only yesterday (26th) at the time of writing should be enough to prove this story is fake.
The RedLinePage.com uses a Blogspot page as its source, not a reputable media outlet or press statement from anyone credible. Since the death of George Soros is likely to garner much mainstream media attention, we don’t need to rely on anonymous, unknown websites to acquire this kind of news.
When it comes to the deaths of celebrities, we recommend sticking to the mainstream outlets to get this sort of news. Celebrity death hoaxes are a popular type of hoax spread by fake news website such as the sites that have been responsible for circulating this nonsense story.
