A mind-boggling conspiracy theory goes viral suggesting that the Big actor is dead and that his appearance on Saturday Night Live was a deepfake after strange Instagram post from Kirsten Dunst.
Lockdown may be driving some of us a little crazy. A bunch of people believe they’ve stumbled down a spooky rabbit hole that paints beloved actor Tom Hanks as one of the world’s biggest villains… and he might actually be dead. Oh, and the Tom Hanks Saturday Night Live episode is a deepfake.
Who is Tom Hanks according to these conspiracy theorists? A pretty nasty man who is involved in some really dark business; human trafficking and paedophilia. Sounds insane, right?
It all started when a woman called Sarah Ruth Ascraft and a Hollywood actor who starred in Thor, Isaac Kappy, alleged that the actor known for his role award winning role as Forest Gump was a paedophile.
“Steven Spielberg is a paedophile. Oh, and I’m not going to talk about Tom Hanks who is also a paedophile. Tom Hanks, folks, is a paedophile,” Isaac Kappy said in one of his livestreams shortly before being discovered dead in an alleged suicide.
Tom Hanks appears on home filmed Saturday Night Life (SNL) episode to prove he’s not dead. Deepfake?
A report from Business Insider claims he died at the scene in Bellemont, Arizona after he “forced himself” off a bridge and was struck by a car, according to a statement from Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves.
“On May 13, 2019 at 7:26 a.m., troopers were called to Interstate 40 eastbound at Transwestern Road (milepost 185) for a subject who forced himself off the Transwestern Rd bridge onto Interstate 40,” the statement read.
It continued: “He was then struck by a passing car. The man has been identified as 42-year-old Isaac Kappy of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Mr. Kappy died on-scene.”

Oh yeah, and Tom Hanks is either dead or in prison right now
His death piqued people’s interest in his case as the actor, who was 42-year-old at the time, had previously told his followers that he was not suicidal.
People were a little freaked out when Tom Hanks visited the scene of his death and shared a bizarre picture of a glove with the following comment: “Historic Route 66. Roadkill? I hope not! Hanx.”

Now some people believe that Tom Hanks has either been arrested or has died of the coronavirus after a popular conspiracy podcast talked about it.
It only got worse after the U.S. president accidentally Tweeted a message that insinuated that Tom Hanks had died. He was quick to delete the the Tweet.
While most people are calling the conspiracy theory ‘insane and unbelievable’ others are now even more convinced after Kirsten Dunst shared a weird little picture of Woody from Toy Story (played by Tom Hanks) lying on the ground.

You’d assume that after Tom Hanks appeared Saturday Night Live that this conspiracy theory would be laid to rest, but people think they have an answer for that too… it’s a deepfake.
A deepfake is a fake photo, video or story generated by AI neural networks. Deepfake creators use artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to imitate the work and characteristics of real humans. Deepfakes differ from traditional fake media by being extremely hard to identify.
