Following his appearance in a BBC News Covid-19 programme, some Twitter users dived into a strange notion suggesting that Henry Dyne’s struggle with the virus was a fake.
Even though Henry’s sarcastic Instagram bio unintentionally thrust him into the centre of a crazy social media frenzy, the resulting film portrayed him as a crisis actor.
Henry Dyne, in the midst of his public rant, corrected the record by revising his Instagram profile.
As the internet grows, so do Henry Dyne’s ideas.
Henry Dyne, then 28 years old, spoke out about his battle with the coronavirus in an interview with the BBC in July 2021. He subsequently advised everyone to get vaccinated.
As soon as the BBC interview leaked online, conspiracy theorists began speculating that Henry was a crisis actor who had been prepared for the interview.
While these wild accusations were circulating online, Henry Dyne modified his Instagram bio to read, “1x Oscar-winning crisis actor,” in an apparent attempt at humour. But that just made people more suspicious, and another group of easy marks fell for the crisis actor hoax.
An Instagram user who was recently interviewed by the BBC has updated her bio.
Because of the unexpected show, Henry Dyne has updated his Instagram profile. During a BBC interview, the respondent stated that his self-description as an “Oscar-winning Crisis Actor” was ironic.
Instagram Page for Dyne. Currently, you can read: “This bio is poking fun at you conspiracy theorists. but I’ll take the helm if you need me to.
According to an earlier draught of the IG bio, “This bio is ridiculing conspiracy saboteurs (always)” confirmed that the bio was always sarcastic. Henry Dyne has been called out to by HITC for comment.
Unlucky and in Hospital
Dyne, unfortunately, caught the illness that summer of 2021 and ended up in the hospital. He claimed that he hadn’t gotten the vaccine as a kid because he assumed the virus would be less severe.
The IT consultant was unlucky since he likes to make people laugh on Instagram. When I get into bed, my mind races, and I find myself wide awake an hour later.
Yes, I’m everywhere. Then, suddenly, one morning, I awoke at six o’clock. He continues, “I told them I was dialling 911 for an ambulance.” Having a fever and hallucinations was the scariest part.
In July, he went to the hospital. He was hooked up to an oxygen tank while he talked to BBC reporters covering the epidemic of Covid in young people.
As he puts it, “I felt it could be very great to go on record and say, ‘This is my experience. It’s a whole lot worse than I first imagined. Vaccinate yourself.
When he was born, he had no idea that he would soon become the target of anti-vaccine extremists. The allegations that he was a “crisis actor” started at this point.
After the worst of the criticism died down and Dyne was on the mend, he made light of the situation by calling himself an “Oscar-winning crisis actor” in his Instagram bio.
“Laughter is the only thing left to do,” he says, “but little did I imagine that this joke would get me in so much difficulty.”

Review 2021: The Coronavirus Pandemic, a BBC News Special, aired on December 27 and set off round two. The original interview with Dyne was included in the video.
Someone recorded themself watching the episode, searching for Henry Dyne online, and reading the words “crisis actor” on his Instagram bio.
The video was initially shared on YouTube and Facebook by anti-vaccine activists, but it went viral after being shared on Twitter.
A Welsh political hopeful named Richard Taylor was a major catalyst for the social media uproar. He shared the clip on Facebook and received several comments after tweeting about it.
At the 2019 General Election, Taylor, who was running for the Brexit Party in Blaenau Gwent, received 20% of the vote. A Swansea movie theatre he helped save after it was shut down for violating Covid rules received £61,000.
Taylor posted a video with the caption “We see you” but later clarified via email that she was not implying anything. Those who follow me on social media are free to draw whatever conclusions they like from my posts.
“I have lived believing that when someone tells you who or what they are, believe them,” Taylor wrote, “therefore I would have taken Mr Dyne at face value when he identified himself as a crisis actor.”
The threats and harassment were also rejected by him.
After dedicating most of his life to serving others, he remarked, “I would never willfully contribute to harming or threatening another human.”
