GEORGE Soros is trending – with the internet gripped by another fake obituary.
The Hungarian-American philanthropist is the latest victim of a death hoax.
"George Soros dead" is trending because of a fake obituary on Twitter.
It's not the first time Soros' "death" made headline news.
In 2013, Reuters accidentally published an obituary on Soros.
The news agency realized it was a death hoax and quickly pulled the report.
People on Twitter were declaring the successful financier dead.
The account "anti-woke" tweeted: "BREAKING: According to media reports George Soros has died earlier today aged 92 in Hungary".
But HITC shot down the claim.
They said: "George is alive and he’s also in the news for his business ventures."
It's not clear who started the rumor, but it seems it started spreading on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.
One person wrote: "Is it true that George Soros died today?"
Another said: "Fake news spreading about the death of George Soros.
"I was immediately suspicious when they said he died in Hungary. I believe he's banned from Hungary."
Soros is a Hungarian-American businessman and philanthropist.
As of November 2022, he has a net worth of US$6.7billion, according to Forbes.
He was born in Budapest on August 12, 1930, to a non-observant Jewish family.
His birth name is György Schwartz, with the family changing their Jewish sounding surname to Soros in 1936.
He survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary and later moved to the UK to study.
Soros started his career working in banks in the United Kingdom and then the United States, before starting his first hedge fund, Double Eagle, in 1969.
He has been married three times and has five children.
