Sean Connery's letter to Steve Jobs is a fake

Sean Connery's letter to Steve Jobs is a fake
In recent days, one of the greatest actors of all time, Sean Connery, passed away at the age of 90. Between tributes and celebrations, an alleged letter that the Scot would have sent to Steve Jobs in the late 90s to decline his invitation to appear in one of the Apple commercials has sprung up (indeed, reappeared). This is a fake.

No, Sean Connery did not send this letter to Steve Jobs

It had already circulated in 2011, thus misleading many. This is the text of the message that 007 par excellence would have sent to the CEO of Cupertino in 1998.

Mr Jobs: I'll tell him another time. Do you understand English, right? I don't sell my soul to Apple or any other company. I have no interest in "changing the world" as it suggests. It has nothing that I need or want. She is a computer salesman, I'm the f ***** or JAMES BOND! I can't think of a quicker way to destroy my career than to appear in one of its gross commercials. Please do not contact me anymore.

This is a fake created by the satirical portal Scoopertino which focuses its publications on everything related to the bitten apple. Below is the letter that according to the authors was typed.

Jon, I respect your views but please look at the research debunking this letter. It hurts us all when good people circulate fakes.

Not many are aware of the fact that about a decade ago Sean Connery stumbled upon a practice attributable to spam, asking visitors to his official website to indicate the email addresses of their friends and contacts in order to send their messages in support of the Scottish National Party, the party aiming at the country's independence from the United Kingdom.
