|Other names||Code Monkey Zero|
Ronald Watkins (born 1987 or 1988) is an American conspiracy theorist and site administrator of the imageboard website 8chan. He has played a major role in spreading the discredited far-right QAnon conspiracy theory, 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. He is the son of Jim Watkins, the owner and operator of 8chan. 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.
