Robin Williams Victim of Death Hoax

Robin Williams is the victim of a new death hoax. A rumor that the actor and comedian died while filming a movie in Austria is spreading thanks to a fake report from the phony Global Associated News prank site. The bogus story claims Williams “fell more than 50 feet to his death in a remote area of the Hahnenkamm mountains.” It is 100% false. Williams is NOT dead. He’s alive and well.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no end to the Internet’s sick habit of “killing off” celebrities with these rapidly distributed hoaxes and rumors. In recent months, Global Associated News also falsely pronounced Keanu Reeves and Usher “dead” as well. These disgusting death hoaxes need to stop.
