TikTok trend over zombie apocalypse in China debunked
Several TikTokers believe a zombie apocalypse will occur in 2022. Although the rumors about TikTok are a complete lie, what caused it all?
Here’s everything you need to know.
How did the rumor of the zombie apocalypse start on TikTok?
According to the outlet, the rumor came from an online article titled We Are The Might that was published on July 16, 2021 on the site.
The piece is written by Ruddy Cano and begins with the claim: ‘This is how the zombie apocalypse will probably start in China.’
The writer mentioned that a communist nation like China is most likely to start a zombie apocalypse. He added that the country’s officials would keep the epidemic under wraps until it got out of their control.
Cano took a cue from the tragedy of the Chernobyl disaster that took place in 1986.
He wrote: “Communist countries have chosen time and time again to suppress information until it can no longer be denied. In 1986, when the Chernobyl disaster occurred, the Soviet Union refused to acknowledge the problem until other countries had conclusive proof that something was wrong.’
The article went on to point out that the Chinese believe that “losing face” after doing something is possibly “worse than a mistake”.
He also quoted a quote from Max Brooks’ fictional book World War Z.
The sentence read: ‘By refusing to tell the world the truth about the zombie outbreak, the Communist Chinese government has aided its spread due to misinformation about what is really going on.’
The writer said that if the apocalypse really happened in China, the citizens would do anything to keep the outbreak secret. He argued that they would not appreciate looking “powerless” in front of the rest of the world.
The article further noted that the Chinese population would even lie to hide their mistake. He noted that people would say “the outbreak was natural rather than criminal negligence.”
Social media users are reacting to the zombie apocalypse rumor
A lot of users actually believed the stupid rumors that spread around the internet. They took to various social media platforms to share their views on it.
One user shared: “Lowkey I hope the Chinese zombie thing is real. I’m so tired of living in capitalism.”
