The Black Hand Conspiracy
Just last month, end of year 2015 we were shocked by another air crash after there were two other plane accidents months ago. The recent accident belongs to the same Airline companies “Malaysian Airline”. The recent accident is belong to Malaysian company “Air Asia”. Days after the shocking Air Asia, we were curious by a theory of these crashes called “The Black Hand Conspiracy”. The post, by a Tianya user being called “The Landlord” by redditors (based on a hazy Google Translate version of his username), essentially claims that a “black hand,” which is a metaphor for an evil, international organization, hijacked and shot down Malaysia Flight MH370 and Flight MH17. “This has pretty much killed the 6th largest airline: Malaysian airline,” the post continues, adding a specific warning to anyone who would dare fly with a Malaysian airline in the future. “Now the black hand are targeting Air Asia to ruin this airline cause it too belong to Malaysia. Given how powerful the black hand are, I suggest that all Chinese thinking about traveling to avoid Air Asia, so that you don’t disappear like those on MH370.”
At the time, the poster was accused of being a conspiracy nut, but now users on both Weibo and Reddit are jumping at the chance to support his theory. This may give a small effect to customers, but won’t be long since many governments and companies involved to this case.
“Some Reddit users are claiming that the post may have been edited to include Air Asia after the disappearance of the jet”.
