But the politician meant February 24, the day Russia invaded Ukraine.

There’s no evidence that a global catastrophe will happen on September 24, but hysterical social media users have started counting down anyway.

One person said: “Zombies! I am so delighted. The end is Zigh (sic).”

Another claimed unfounded: “I’m on good authority (source: The Simpsons) that Saturday is the day…not sure what time, maybe an early meal.”

While a third panicked: “Simpsons predicted September 24 as the end of the world. There could be a solar storm.”

And one social media user quipped: “I hope… [a] zombie apocalypse (lol).”

Rumors of a solar flare or an intense burst of electromagnetic radiation in the sun’s atmosphere are also circulating online.

Solar flares usually pose no danger to humans, but conspiracy theorists argued that such an event would be quite different.

A solar flare caused radio interference in Africa and the Middle East last week, fueling fears.

A episode from The Simpsons that supposedly predicted that the world would end on September 24, 2022 has contributed to the frenzy.

The episode, titled “Homer Goes to Prep School,” shows Homer joining a survival group.

“The apocalypse is coming. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe never, but it’s coming,” the cartoon dad tells Marge.

However, the show never mentioned the alleged doomsday.

The theory was spread after it was discovered that the episode number was 24/9, which has since been interpreted as September 24.

And conspiracy theory notes have also falsely claimed that Vladimir Putin would launch a nuclear weapon on September 24, unleashing World War III.
