DEBUNKED: Tom Selleck isn’t de.ad in 2022 as hoax leaves fans concerned
The internet has witnessed several obnoxious rumors lately, such as the latest one that claims renowned actor Tom Selleck is now dead.
A number of posts widely circulated on Twitter claim that the Hollywood star has pa.ssed away, and some fans have come to believe it.
Like Tom, many celebrities have fallen prey to such baseless rumors.
Here’s a look at where Tom’s d.e.ath hoax stems from.
Tom Selleck isn’t d.ead
A YouTube channel well known for spreading false rumors about celebrity deaths is responsible for the hoax.
On July 26, a video titled, “10 Minutes Ago/ R.I.P. Tom Selleck / He di.e.d of a dangerous incurable disease / Goodbye Tom Sellec” was shared on the channel, which has more than 22,800 subscribers.
Not only does the claim lack evidence, but it has also misspelt the actor’s last name.
The description only details his career, without any mention of his false de.ath. Many have slammed the channel in the comments for making up sick rumors about celebrities just for the sake of attention.
The same channel also claims that Chuck Norris died today – that is just as ridiculous a claim as the hoax about Tom’s de.ath.
Is it true; has Tom Selleck died? 🙁
