A letter sent to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been retweeted on social media after the death of prominent actor Sir Sean Connery on Saturday,media the Verge reported. But it turned out that the letter was fake and was part of a satirical article about Apple published by the humor website Sopertino.
The printed letter, dated 1998, showed that Connelly was furious that Jobs had asked him to appear in an Apple ad. “I’m not going to sell my soul for Apple or any other company. I’m not interested in what you call ‘changing the world’. The letter said. You’re a computer salesman, I’m James Bond! “
The “letter” began to be retweeted on Twitter on Sunday morning. Connelly had been trying for years to get rid of the James Bond role, and by 1998 he had moved on to other roles. The fake letter was also widely shared in 2011, thanks to another unsuspecting Twitter user, CNET reported.
