On November 14, there were numerous death rumors circulating on Twitter. Because of the shocking nature of the news, the hashtag “RIP Jimmy Fallon” quickly became popular on social media. The information is false, though. The late-night host is still in good health. Jimmy Fallon passed away, according to a tweet from the @FallonTonight account. Additionally, a picture of the television host and a dog in black and white was uploaded. We regret to inform you of the passing of Jimmy Fallon, late-night legend, husband, and father of two. Check further details here.
It is no doubt to say that the tweet went rapidly viral on multiple social media platforms. Netizens were shocked, to say the least after coming across the said tweet. Due to the fact that the announcement appeared to have originated from the host’s official late-night show account, many people believed it to be accurate. The information is false, though.
Jimmy Fallon Dead Or Alive?
The tweet featured the incorrect birth year for the anchor. Jimmy Fallon was born in 1974, not 1923 as some claim. He would be 48 years old after this. Fallon would be 99 years old if the year in the tweet were to be taken at face value. Evidently, the social media post was altered with Photoshop to produce a fake tweet. Let us tell you that several internet users did not verify the tweet. While many believed the tweet, many questioned its authenticity.
However, tributary posts and condolence messages flooded Twitter in a very short course of time. Apart from RIP messages, several users also created memes about the matter. Within some time, the hashtag started trending on Twitter. After the chaos, Jimmy Fallon himself took to Twitter to clear the mess. He posted a tweet in which he wrote, “Elon, can you fix this? #RIPJimmyFallon”. Apart from Fallon, his representatives also confirmed that the host is alive.
The bogus tweet appears to be a hoax about a celebrity’s passing. Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, J.K. Rowling, Bad Bunny, and other prominent celebrities have also succumbed to the fad. In an effort to achieve popularity online, people produce clickbait content that is disguised as fake news. When news of significant gravity breaks online, it is necessary to fact-check the same through other reliable sites because, unfortunately, disinformation travels online solely for internet “clout.” For more updates, follow Social Telecast and get all the latest details about trending news occurring worldwide.
