I have been blogging for quite a few years now and since 2007, I have seen many celebrities fall victim to the “death hoax”.
We’ve seen Rihanna and other famoust stars trend on Twitter and Google trends for this reason.
The latest victim was Beverly Hills Cop star Eddie Murphy. It was rumored that he died of a snowboarding accident in Switzerland. It is not the first time that the actor has fallen victim to the death hoax. He was reported to have died back in 2009, 2010 and this year being his second (first hoax came out two months ago).
I don’t know the reason behind this but apparently, anyone that dies (be it that they are a known celebrity or not) goes on top of Social Media Trends immediately after the news breaks out.
I remember that my blog crashed several times during the death of Kung Fu TV series star David Carradine.
Eddie Murphy is alive an well folks!
