News of Alibaba cofounder Jack Ma’s disappearance from public view has driven heated speculation across social media in recent days.
Jack Ma is one of the world’s most successful business people. And, until recently, he was also quite talkative. Now Jack Ma has seemingly fallen off the face of the Earth following the denunciation of his homeland government. Many suspected that Chinese officials have ‘taken him out’.
The Chinese billionaire was replaced as a judge in the final episode of the show by Alibaba’s co-founder Lucy Peng and his picture was also removed from the judging webpage, reported the Financial Times.
The news report also quoted an Alibaba spokesperson who stated that Mr Ma could no longer be part of the finale of the show “due to a schedule conflict”.
