People’s reactions to the passing of American-Hungarian billionaire and philanthropist George Soros are all over the internet. After reading the tweet from Anti Woke that read, “BREAKING: According to media reports, George Soros has died earlier today aged 92 in Hungary,” everyone was curious about what had happened to him and what the valid reason for his death was.
There has been a follow-up Tweet that supports our suspicions that Gorge Soros is, in fact, alive and well, and they tweeted incorrect information. It appears that this is an internet hoax begun by “Anti Woke,” while speculation grows, there is no truth behind this story.
Although individuals must have the right to free speech, Twitter may also serve as a haven for fabrications and false information. One tweet went viral on the internet and launched the entire narrative.
❌❌ George Soros reps officially confirmed that George Soros is not dead.
➡️ “He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said

George Soros, raised in a non-observant Jewish family and was born on August 12th, 1930, in Budapest, survived the Nazi takeover of Hungary and immigrated to the UK in 1947.
Before founding his first mutual fund, Double Eagle, in 1969, Soros started his commercial career by working in various positions in merchant banks in the United Kingdom and later the United States. Soros and Jim Rogers established the Quantum Fund in 1970.
He made billions of dollars from the fund, which went on to become one of the most prosperous hedge funds in history. He also began making investments in businesses like Goldman Sachs and Coca-Cola.
Soros is a significant donor to liberal groups and supports progressive-liberal political candidates globally, such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
In addition, he founded the Open Society Foundations, an organization that promotes human rights and democracy worldwide. In February 2018, his net worth was $8 billion, making him one of the wealthiest investors in the world. As of his significant betting made against the British pound in 1992, Soros is referred to as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England.”
