Conspiracy theorists often make false and cruel accusations that some disasters are staged and that the victims and their families are being played by what they call crisis actors. Their “proofs” are just that persons resembling the victims or having similar names are still living. They will even go as far as harassing these people in real life.
Flat-Earth is an extreme conspiracy theory, and its followers are also susceptible to making the same claims about crisis actors for related disasters, like the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.
Other disasters that these people dismissed by creating crisis actor accusations include Sandy Hook school shootings, Boston Marathon bombing, Sydney terrorist attack, and Paris terrorist attack.
