Eyebrows were raised recently when it was learned that Amazon’s Alexa device provided a rather curious response when asked about chemtrails, but it seems that the popular digital assistant may have already been silenced by the ‘powers that be.’
Multiple videos circulating online over the last few days have shown that, when asked “what is a chemtrail,” the device responded with an incredible answer that appeared to endorse the infamous conspiracy theory.
Specifically, it said that chemtrails were “trails left by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed at high altitudes for a purpose undisclosed to the general public in clandestine programs directed by government officials.”
When the website Mashable wrote about this weird answer, word quickly began to spread online and, it would seem, eventually reached Amazon, who swiftly changed the devices response to the more prosaic explanation for chemtrails which says that they are simply jet engine exhaust.
While skeptics will say that the company merely corrected a mistake made by the device where it was pulling the information about chemtrails from a disreputable source, conspiracy theorists will argue that the device was adjusted because it got too close to the truth.
