Megan kicked off a star-studded year of fake celebrity deaths at the beginning of January when she was forced to join Twitter after ‘RIP Megan Fox’ began trending. She soon put the record straight and has been alive ever since.
Surely the greatest example of mistaken celebrity death this year, Cher’s supposed demise arose from a hashtag misreading after Margaret Thatcher died. ‘Now Thatcher’s dead’ came out as ‘Now that Cher’s dead’ and fans of fierce auto-tuning the world over were sent into a panic.
Back in August, Breezy was the victim of a hoax in which it was claimed he had died of a seizure. And back in 2009, he was also the victim of a hoax in which it was claimed he pulverised then-girlfriend Rihanna before being forgiven by her and millions of adoring teen girl fans. Oh wait, that actually happened.
When Chloe was rumoured to have died in a tragic snowboarding accident, the young actress went on a Twitter rant – slamming the individuals who had started the hoax. She mainly seemed to be cross that it wasn’t even snowing in Switzerland at the time (although it probably was snowing in the Alps, Chloe…).
Goldblum – famously the subject of countless death hoaxes over the years – mostly seemed to be dying of cliff falls and heart attacks in 2013.
The internet’s always killing this guy off, too. And, unable to think of anything new, Twitter said Sandler also died in a snowboarding accident.
Yep, snowboard again. This time in August. You know how you always go snowboarding in August, right?
