‘Armed, dangerous and unhinged’: John McAfee tweets ‘warning’ about lookalike imposter

‘Armed, dangerous and unhinged’: John McAfee tweets ‘warning’ about lookalike imposter
John McAfee made fun of his renegade reputation with a tongue-in-cheek tweet warning people to be on the lookout for an armed and dangerous man – one who looks suspiciously exactly like him, but with a blonde wig.

McAfee, who is running for president of the US in 2020, shared a photograph of the supposed mystery doppelganger on Twitter. The tweet also warned that the imposter was usually in the company of “an even more dangerous black woman,” a likely reference to his wife Janice McAfee. 

The software engineer and bitcoin advocate was recently detained in the Dominican Republic after his yacht was seized, along with weapons and ammo found on board. He also recently tweeted about allegedly having a run-in with the CIA earlier in July, and is wanted in the US for tax evasion. 

Although currently still on the move to, as he says, avoid the US Department of Justice, McAfee took the time recently to shoot down one particular conspiracy theory about him which claimed he was behind a YouTube channel that has been posting drone footage apparently shot on Jeffrey Epstein’s island.
