Ronald Watkins (born 1987 or 1988)[1] is an American conspiracy theorist and site administrator of the imageboard website 8chan.[2][3] He has played a major role in spreading the discredited far-right QAnon conspiracy theory,[4][5] and has promulgated baseless conspiracy theories that widespread election fraud led to Joe Biden's victory over Donald Trump in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.[4][6] He is the son of Jim Watkins, the owner and operator of 8chan.[7] Some journalists and researchers believe that one or both of the Watkinses know the identity of, or are themselves, "Q", the person or group of people behind QAnon.
