‘I’m concerned about his health, his family, and I just hope that by some miracle he’s set free’

Among the crazy conspiracy theories that have cropped up during this presidential election season, one easily tops them all. According to Mic, Twitter users started a rumor that the one-and-only Pamela Anderson poisoned WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with tainted vegan food while spying on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
But is there any proof to support this off-the-wall theory? Well, no, not really. This past Saturday, photographers spotted the former Baywatch star heading in to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where Assange continues to evade rape charges and extradition to Sweden, the Associated Press reports. Wearing cat eye sunglasses and carrying a Pret a Manger bag full of “vegan snacks”, Anderson doesn’t look like your typical spy, but then again, who are we to judge?
Apparently, as she explained to the UK Press Association, she delivered Assange "a nice vegan lunch and some vegan snacks” out of concern for his health. Reportedly a fan of Assange, Anderson went on to say jokingly, “He said I tortured him with bringing him vegan food. I really believe in him and think he’s a good person and I’m concerned about his health, his family, and I just hope that by some miracle he’s set free.”
Sure, maybe in this interconnected world a famous actress and an infamous hacker could be BFFs. But Twitter users were quick to question the unlikely relationship after WikiLeaks published a series of mysterious tweets following their eco-friendly lunch. According to Mashable, many users saw the tweets as a “dead man’s switch” prompted by a flavorless sandwich assassination of Assange.

Apparently all it takes is some vegan takeout, a buxom blonde, and a few indecipherable tweets to launch an epically unbelievable conspiracy theory.
