After #RIPJeffBezos began trending today on Twitter and reached number 1 position, it has now been revealed that the death rumour is a hoax.

Many people had joined the thread thinking that the Amazon CEO was truly dead after it was rumoured that he drowned in a river.

Twitter users were initially shocked and took to the platform to mourn him with the hashtag. However, after the rumour was debunked, the trend took a new path as users shared memes to mock Jeff Bezos. Some even claimed that he died due to drowning in the Amazon river.

It is not clear how the rumour of his death began but it is believed the death hoax was created in order to defame him and probably to topple down the Amazon stocks.

On July 6, Amazon had hit an all-time high at the stocks market while all the other business were suffering due to the ongoing global pandemic. The richest man sold $4 Billion worth of stocks in only one week of February 2020, which added a few billion dollars to his net worth.
