Hugh Hefner is the latest celeb to fall victim to the internet’s death hoax over the weekend, after stories claimed he died of natural causes on Sunday December 28, 2014.
The hoax was posted from a fake NBC page, but thankfully Hugh is still alive and kickin, even posting a picture from his wife Crystal Hefner’s Twitter page.
As of 11p last night, the story had over 159,000 Facebook shares, over 39,000 likes, and about 1800 Twitter shares.
The story states that “police responded to Hugh Hefner’s estate on December 28 at approximately 9 a.m., where Hefner’s body was identified, and he was pronounced dead.”
Don’t believe it though, it’s FAKE!
