On its website, Jack Ma’s photos were taken down while his name was no longer on the judge list. Another Alibaba executive had replaced Jack Ma’s position due to a ‘schedule conflict’ as Alibaba’s spokesperson informed.

However, netizens doubt that Jack Ma had been missing for nearly 2 months as they didn’t spot him on any public channel. Before that, Ma was one of the most recognized entrepreneurs in China, who often appeared on the screen and shared advice to the youth.

Jack Ma’s disagreement with the Chinese government

Netizens are guessing Jack Ma’s disappearance is due to his controversial statements against Chinese administration systems.

As Jack Ma is one of the most successful and admired people in China, every single word from him could have an immense influence on the public. However, his anti-regulation speech in Shanghai has enraged Chinese President Xi Jinping. This evoked rumours for his suspected missing.

Angered by Ma’s statements, the Chinese government suspended the initial public offering of Ant Group which is worth $37 billion. According to reports, President Xi Jinping directly ordered this.
