Kate Middleton and the ongoing rumors of cancer

Despite Kate Middleton revealing she has a tumor, conspiracy theorists continue to spread theories online. While some users have apologized for their previous comments about her, the Guardian reports that conspiracy theories have not ceased. The hashtag #Kategate saw a surge in mentions, reaching 400 at its peak. BrandMentions, a social media monitoring company, noted that mentions increased from the previous weekend.

The topic is popular on various platforms including X, Instagram, and Tik Tok. A video posted on Tik Tok, viewed 200 thousand times in one day, claims that the announcement made by the future British queen may have been manipulated with the help of artificial intelligence. The BBC confirmed the authenticity of the footage, stating that Kate was filmed by a crew from the broadcaster.

Professor Quassim Cassam, an expert in conspiracy theories at the University of Warwick, explains that rumors can often be fueled by evidence that disproves them. Conspiracy theories, he notes, are resilient because the evidence is seen as part of the conspiracy. Some individuals spread conspiracies for entertainment, according to Whitney Phillips, an expert on digital platforms and ethics at the University of Oregon.

Both experts believe that the Kate hoaxes will eventually fade as new conspiracy theories emerge on different topics. Phillips notes that speculation and theories can be entertaining or serve as a distraction for participants, without considering the impact on those involved. Despite efforts to dispel the hoaxes, the theories persist and continue to circulate online.
