Conspiracy Theories Surface After Singapore Ship Strikes Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore

Conspiracy theories arise following collapse of Baltimore Bridge: Is this the start of World War III?

After a Singapore-flagged container ship struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, causing it to collapse and killing six workers, conspiracy theories began to circulate about a deliberate attack. However, authorities found no evidence of criminal activity.

On social media platforms, various theories emerged that implicated different groups, such as terrorists or foreign agents, in the supposed attack. Influencers like Andrew Tate and conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones added fuel to these speculations, suggesting cyber attacks and hinting at the possibility of a Third World War.

Despite Singapore port authorities’ explanation that the collapse was due to a “momentary loss of propulsion” of the ship, as seen in video surveillance footage, rumors continued to circulate online. Some linked the incident to conflicts in Gaza or questioned diversity initiatives by companies.

Authorities reiterated that there was no indication of a terrorist attack. However, these assurances did not stop conspiracy theories from gaining traction online. Various interpretations of the incident were put forward by different individuals and groups.

In conclusion, while authorities have ruled out any intentional attack on the bridge in Baltimore due to insufficient evidence, conspiracy theories continue to persist online with varying degrees of intensity. It remains to be seen how long these theories will keep circulating before they are finally dispelled once and for all.
