The seemingly never-ending drama surrounding crypto advocate John McAfee took a sinister turn today as the famous personality said an attempt on his life has been made.
Tweeting to his 830,000 followers, McAfee said that he was unconscious for 2 days following an apparent attempt on his life:
I apologize for my three day absence but I was unconscious for two days at the Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina and just woke up. My enemies maged to spike something that i ingested. However, I am more difficult to kill than anyone can possibly imagine. I am back.— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) June 22, 2018
After a conspicuous three-day silence from the usually active twitter-user, McAfee also tweeted a picture of himself looking very worse for wear in a hospital bed - claiming he knows “exactly” who the perpetrators of the apparent attack are:
And for those who did this - You will soon understand the true meaning of wrath. I know exactly who you are. Youh had better be gone. pic.twitter.com/URgz5BtMLF— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) June 22, 2018
While the precise nature of the alleged attack is as yet unclear, McAfee’s wife - Janice - emphasised how precarious his security situation is, and pointed to the kind of perpetrator who might be responsible for the alleged attack:
He doesn't need to be tough on Twitter. Despite what you idiots think, he actually has real security threats against his life for speaking out against corrupt governments and three letter agencies. Just because it doesn't make the evening news doesn't mean it isn't happening.— Janice McAfee (@theemrsmcafee) June 22, 2018
Turbulent Time for McAfee
Following his announcement on Monday that he will no longer be promoting ICOs due to unspecified “threats from the SEC,” this latest twist in the saga appears to be a particularly shocking incident - even for the eccentric 72 year old - and undoubtedly more details will emerge as he recovers.
