I'm sure by know you've heard several conspiracy theories surrounding the Coronavirus.  Most of them seem to be politically based, terrorist based and some are "crazy" based.  One of those has just been revealed coming from Rosanne Barr to said something to the effect that the virus was sent to kill the women of her generation.  "The boomer ladies that, you know, that inherited their, you know, are widows.  They inherited the money, so they got to go wherever the money is and figure out a way to get it from people."  Well there's another theory attached to another celebrity that's being shared.

According to kron4.com, phone masts that enable the next generation of wireless communication – 5G – are being set on fire in the United Kingdom, apparently by people motivated by a theory that 5G helps spread the coronavirus.  The theory that faster 5G internet is either causing or accelerating the spread of the coronavirus being shared widely on social media despite there being no evidence to support it.  Mast fires were reported in Belfast, Liverpool and Birmingham, according to local media.

Last week, actor Woody Harrelson posted about the conspiracy theory on his Instagram, writing “a lot of my friends have been talking about the negative effects of 5G.”  “Though I haven’t fully vetted it I find it very interesting,” he added.The post has since been liked and shared more than 25,000 times.  Harrelson added more fuel to the fire by Instagramming a video showing Chinese campaigners attacking phone towers there. That video got more than 300,000 views.
