David Attenborough, 95, has long been at the centre of all that is good in the world; the God of nature, if you will. But fans of the environmentalist were left in utter dismay on Monday night when his name was trending on Twitter with over 10,000 posts talking about the journalist.
It’s considered bad news when someone is trending on social media, and many fans felt their heart drop in their chest when they saw Mr Attenborough’s name up in bold.
Taking to the social media platform, thousands shared their concerns about whether he was OK.
“OMG WHY IS DAVID ATTENBOROUGH TRENDING AGAIN,” one exclaimed.
A second said: “Someone confirm David Attenborough is alive and well?!”
In his interview with 60 Seconds, the legendary journalist said he hopes the way Covid-19 has isolated people and forced them to reduce the pace of daily living has helped them recognise the value of nature.
He also touches on how we need to urgently unite around ditching fossil fuels, exclaiming: “Why should we go on poisoning life on earth?”
Recently, an old interview resurfaced of the popular broadcaster talking about how his worldwide fame came with a huge sacrifice to his home life, admitting that his job impacted his relationship with his two children – Susan and Robert – while they were growing up.
Talking to the Radio Times in 2017, Sir David told Louis Theroux: “If you have a child of six or eight and you miss three months of his or her life, it’s irreplaceable. You miss something.”
