Did Bill Gates say that 3 billion people need to die?

Published

on

A viral video on social media shows a man who claims that Bill Gates said that 3 billion people need to die. The clip shows a man identified as “Dr. Robert O. Young” who is allegedly quoting Gates during a panel entitled “International Tribunal for Natural Justice”.  In the video, Young says, quote: “For the purpose of sterilization and population control, there’s too many people on the planet we need to get rid of. In the words of Bill Gates, at least three billion people need to die,” end of quote.

 

The claim is FALSE; here are the facts:

The clip circulating on social media was extracted from a 90-minute video posted on YouTube on 20th November 2019 and falsely makes the claim against Bill Gates, about “sterilization and population control”.

 

The speaker in the video, Dr. Robert O. Young, is a discredited American author found guilty and jailed for practicing medicine without a license. The group, International Tribunal for Natural Justice, is a fringe faction known for spreading conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several credible news organisations, including the reputable international news agency, Reuters, have debunked the claim saying there’s no evidence Gates ever made such a statement. The Robert Young group merely slanted a speech by the billionaire philanthropist, Gates, where he spoke about the benefits of slowing the rate of population growth, but he has not advocated killing people.

 

CONCLUSION

The claim that Bill Gates said 3 billion people need to die is FALSE
