America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel was forced to speak out and deny fan theories claiming that he has been kidnapped.

Some fans of the comedian were under the impression that Howie was no longer safe after he posted a series of ‘weird’ TikTok videos online.

Taking to Twitter, Howie shared a video in which he simply stated: ‘I’m fine. I’m really fine.’

The strange conspiracy theories all began when TikTok creator @baliyadi posted a series short videos where she investigated the supposed hidden messages in Howie’s TikTok videos.

In her seven-part series, she claimed that Howie allegedly pointed to the letters SOS on his Lifeguard Santa Monica hoodie.

And claimed that the TV star did it again in a DIY video in which he held a paper bag with Shoe Stuff written on it.

She claimed the S’s on the paper bag looked more like the number 5 which would mean he had displayed the number 55.

55 in an international dialling code which will alert the police that you’re being held captive, or that there’s an intruder in your house, and you cannot talk.

At first, Howie appeared to play into the conspiracy theory by posting more videos with S-O-S messages and strange symbols, including a video where he plays ‘Message in a Bottle’ by The Police.

But on Sunday night, he put an end to the fan theories as he posted his smiling video to ensure fans he was ‘fine’.

However, some fans still aren’t sure as one replied: ‘that sounds like something a person holding u hostage would make you say.’

We’re just going to take Howie’s word for it and believe that he is perfectly safe.
