Deluge of emotions as Bill and Melinda Gates announce divorce

Shocking reactions have trailed the news that Microsoft founder, Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda are set for divorce.

The couple who jointly run the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest private philanthropic foundation, announced on Monday they will divorce after 27 years of marriage.

Making the announcement on Bill Gates’ official Twitter page, they said the move became necessary as they could “no longer grow as a couple”.

They however promised to continue to work together on their joint project – Gates Foundation – which has positively affected millions across the globe.

The news has expectedly triggered a floodgate of emotional, and sometimes outrageous reactions, making #after27 the number 1 on Twitter top trends.

See some reactions below.

@MattWalshBlog said:

“65 years old, married for three decades, and divorcing because you can “no longer grow together as a couple.” I’ll never understand it.”

New York City-based standup comedian, @CaslerNoel opined:

“I just heard that Bill & Melinda Gates are divorcing, truly sad news. Mel, call me. Anytime. Seriously.”

Nigeria’s award-winning investigative journalist, Fisayo Soyombo tweeted:’

“Bill and Melinda Gates parting after 27 years and their divorce announcement is more harmless than what some ongoing lovers exchange. So civil. Love can go rancid but no breakup should be caustic.”

British broadcaster @Piers Morgan simply tweeted “Wow”.

Another Twitter user @ KingKomo had this to say:

“After 27 years of marriage you’re stuck with me for life. Sorry, do you think I’m going back to the streets at 60?”

And @VickyShegzy had a rather cheeky take on the matter…

“Melinda leaving Bill gates after 27 years because Bill named his company after his genitals… Microsoft”
