Bill Cosby - Gett Images
The funnyman became quite the trending topic when a “R.I.P Bill Cosby” page popped up on Facebook.
And Cosby has not been the only celebrity this week being killed off. There has been an onslaught of death hoaxes, most recently, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift & Eddie Murphy.
Cosby is no stranger to death hoaxes. In 2010, the comedian was killed off any number of times, until in his exasperation, he told CNN news that “I don’t want to do this anymore, because this is my fourth time being reported [dead]“.
The comedian went on to say, “I don’t know. Maybe a psychiatrist will say I’m feeding [the rumor starter's] ego, but I just want to say to friends of that person: Just tell him to stop, because it isn’t funny,”
The response came after the comedian heard of a dear friend, left in tears, for fear the rumor was actually a fact.
Is It Time For the death Hoaxes to Stop? I don’t know about you, but in my humble opinion, YES it is! Before long, few of us will know what to believe as true or just a myth. It seems that many amongst the social network are also getting fed up with this ridiculous form of amusement by unknown hoaxers on Twitter and Facebook.
Below are some of the most popular tweets:
” Bill Cosby has died….only on twitter…not in real life. Quit starting stupid twitter death hoaxes.” says annoyed @breakingnews
