Some people believe Joan Rivers' death was an "Illuminati sacrifice," since she passed away Thursday, which also happened to be Beyoncé’s birthday. Rivers was also born in 1933 and died at the age of 81, while Beyoncé was born in 1981 and turned 33 on Thursday.

Additionally, one of Rivers’ last tweets was about the singer: 


The comedian was referring to the infamous elevator fight between Solange and Jay Z that took place in May. Due to these coincidences, many believe the mysterious, sinister Illuminati planned for Rivers’ death to occur on Sept. 4.

Though Rivers went into cardiac respiratory arrest while undergoing throat surgery, Twitter users flooded the social media blog to discuss the coincidence or “conspiracy.”


Joan Rivers' daughter, Melissa, released a statement Thursday confirming her mother had passed away. “It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother,” Melissa said. “Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated. My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
