Celebrities like Charlie Sheen, Jackie Chan, Jon Bon Jovi, Adam Sandler, Justin Bieber, Christian Slater, Eddie Murphy and many more have already become the victim of death hoax. The most recent celebrity who became the prey of the online death hoax is Brad Pitt. He is alive and perfectly all right. The death hoax of Brad Pitt went viral online on 29th July (Sunday) morning. The rumor stated that the 48-year-old star died in a snowboarding accident in Zermatt, Switzerland. According to the rumor, he lost his snowboard control, crashed into a tree at a high rate of speed and died instantly.
The site also stated that ski patrol teams airlifted Pitt to a local hospital after being injured in the crash. The death hoax was begun by a prank site called Global Associated News. The site included a disclaimer at the bottom of the original story that this is 100% fake story. It also included that this site is an entertainment website and the posted story is just for entertainment purpose. Readers never read the disclaimer at the bottom as they overcome with emotion after reading the first line. Death hoax of Brad Pitt is just like the Charlie Sheen’s death hoax in 2010.
