  • Pop singer Michael Wendler (49) has repeatedly made negative headlines in recent months with the spread of corona conspiracy theories.

  • In February, his Instagram profile was blocked because of this.

  • Now he is even taking advantage of the death of comedian Mirco Nontschew to spread conspiracy theories on Telegram.

  • The «world» takes a position on the wrong headlines.

  • Criticized on Instagram Oliver Pocher (43) the “no matter” interpreter now sharp.

Michael Wendler causes outrage with his conspiracy theories – and doesn't even stop at the death of a colleague. For example, the 49-year-old distributed a manipulated “Welt” article on Telegram about the recently deceased Mirco Nontschew. However, the headline was edited to make it appear that the comedian died from a booster vaccination.

Instead of “Mourning for Mirco Nontschew” as in the original published by “Welt”, the presumably falsified title is: “After booster vaccination”. The Telegram group claims that the headline was subsequently adjusted by the editorial staff. When asked for 20 minutes, the “Welt” editorial team made it clear: “The headline shared by Michael Wendler is clearly a crude forgery.” The Wayback Machine's online archive also shows that “Mourning Mirco Nontschew” is the original title.

It is unclear whether Wendler himself falsified the headline or merely shared an image that had already been manipulated. In another Telegram post, however, he clearly suggests that a vaccination could be the cause of Nontschew's death.
