In case you’ve heard reports that Robert Redford is dead, just know that they’re nothing but a sick hoax.
The rumors began when Britain’s Sky News claimed that the 79-year-old actor died after falling off of a golf cart in Santa Monica, California. Tributes on Twitter began pouring in after the fake report went public, but Redford’s rep says it’s a “sick hoax.”
Sky News has also reported several other celebrity deaths in the past, but they have all proven to be untrue. Redford’s publicist, Cindi Berger said, “This is a sick hoax. I just spoke to him and there is no truth to this whatsoever.”
The hoax spread like wild fire on Twitter and in just fifteen minutes, there were hordes of fans talking about their sadness because of his death.
People will make up anything to get their fifteen minutes in the spotlight, won’t they?
