The #MandelaEffect was coined to represent the phenomenon in which people all over the world swear that they remember South African President Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 80s – complete with vivid recollections of news coverage and an emotional interview with Mandela’s widow – when really he died in 2013 at home. The term is now used to refer to a situation in which a large number of people believe that an event occurred when it did not.
