The information which is allegedly being shared by Bill Gates was actually a tweet by @WolfieBabiee on August 19, 2019.

The tweet by @WolfieBabiee goes as, “I don’t want to see any tweet hating on Muslims for slaughtering animals, about 1 million animals killed each day by KFC, McDonalds, Burger King etc. to feed the rich & making hella money out of it. During Eid Muslims sacrifice them to feed the poor for Free & y’all lose ur mind.This comment was well received on Twitter and is currently being photoshopped and circulated under Bill Gates’ name.

Conclusion:

In our search , it is clear that Billgates never came in support for the hate campaign against the muslims regarding the slaughtering of animals, nor did he compare it with the slaughtering in large food chains like KFC, McDonald’s etc. It turns out that the said tweet is shared by a random twitter user not Billgates.
