Bill Gates calls pandemic conspiracy theories about him, Dr. Fauci “crazy and evil”

Microsoft co-founder turned philanthropist Bill Gates said in an interview Tuesday he has been taken aback by the volume of "crazy" and "evil" conspiracy theories about him and Dr. Anthony Fauci spreading on social media during the COVID-19 pandemic, but said he would like to explore what is behind them.

Gates said the millions of online posts and "crazy conspiracy theories" about him and about top U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci had likely taken hold in part because of the combination of a frightening viral pandemic and the rise of social media.

"Nobody would have predicted that I and Dr. Fauci would be so prominent in these really evil theories," Gates said.

Gates, a billionaire who stepped down as chairman of Microsoft Corp in 2014, has through his philanthropic Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, committed at least $1.75 billion to the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. That includes support for some makers of vaccines, diagnostics and potential treatments.

Since the pandemic began a year ago, millions of conspiracies have spread over the Internet, fuelling misinformation about the coronavirus, including claims that Fauci and Gates created the pandemic to try and control people, that they want to profit from the virus’ spread, and that they want to use vaccines to insert trackable microchips into people.
