Blake Shelton NOT Dead, Singer Mocks Death Hoax
Blake Shelton is NOT dead, despite a made-up news report. The inaccurate story is yet another cruel death hoax.
The completely fake news story was reported on Facebook after a “R.I.P. Blake Shelton” page was created on Tuesday. The information given surrounding his so-called death read, “At about 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday (March 28, 2017), our beloved singer Blake Shelton passed away.”
The bogus report goes on, “Blake Shelton was born on June 18, 1976 in Ada. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.” The Facebook page, which attracted thousands of “likes,” garnered widespread attention, as hundreds of fans mourned the singer on social media.
But it’s all a cruel, twisted lie. Shelton, thankfully, is alive and well, despite the sick report. One Twitter user, who was clearly skeptical of the story, wrote, “@blakeshelton Sorry to hear that you died. LOL This appeared on Facebook today,” prompting an immediate response from the singer. “Well shit…” Shelton joked.
Shelton is just the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax. Only days ago, Gossip Cop corrected a disturbing report that falsely alleged Trevor Noah had tragically died in a car accident. That wasn’t true, and the same goes for this latest, sick death hoax.
