Truth : Clint Eastwood Did Not Die From Cancer / Ligma Virus!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Clint Eastwood Is Still Alive!
Clint Eastwood (born Clinton Eastwood Jr. on May 31, 1930) is still alive as of August 31, 2023.
He had not been sighted in public for over 550 days now, but celebrated his 93rd birthday on May 31, 2023. He also began filming his last movie, Juror No. 2, with Nicholas Hoult and Toni Collette in June 2023.
Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death
These YouTube videos and articles have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported his death!
Clint Eastwood may not have been in the public eye for some time now, but he remains a Hollywood legend, not only as an actor but also as a filmmaker.
If he was really hospitalised for a viral infection, or even a fall, it would have been reported by both mainstream media, as well as celebrity blogs.
Yet, no legitimate media outlet or even a celebrity blog reported that Clint Eastwood was hospitalised, much less died from a viral infection. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #3 : Ligma Virus Does Not Exist
It is impossible for Clint Eastwood to die from a Ligma virus infection, because there is no such virus!
The Ligma virus was created in a 2018 Internet hoax, which claimed that Fortnite game streamer, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins died from it. The fake Ligma virus was simply resurrected and used in the Clint Eastwood death hoax.
Fact #4 : Clint Eastwood Death Photos Were Edited
I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.
In this example, the fake news creator edited a photo of pallbearers leaving St. Mary Parish after a funeral for two siblings – 7 year-old Sean Munroe, and 8 year-old Lexi Munroe, who died after getting trapped in a wooden hope chest.
The funeral was not only far away in Franklin, Massachusetts, it occurred on January 20, 2014 – many years ago.
To make you think it was Clint Eastwood in that casket, the fake news creator simply added a large, floating picture in front of the man in the front.

This photo does not show Clint Eastwood dying in the hospital from the Ligma virus. It is really a photo of Ahmet Dobran, an 82 year-old cancer patient who was attacked and robbed by three men.
That violent attack broke his back in three places, and Mr. Dobran died in the hospital five months later, after drifting in and out of a coma.
Not only did this incident happen far away in East London, this photo was taken a few years ago, in January 2018.

Fact #5 : Clint Eastwood Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too
This Clint Eastwood death hoax is, ironically, also being driven by a fake fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:
News of actor Clint Eastwood’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the August 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the actor best known for the movie Invictus and best known for his roles in Dirty Harry or A Fistful of Dollars is alive and well.
Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Clint Eastwood Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.
The statement from Clint Eastwood’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps of celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Oprah Winfrey, Simon Cowell, Taylor Swift, Madonna, Toby Keith, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Justin Bieber, Robert Pattinson, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman, Dolly Parton, Lucy Liu, and Melanie Laurent.
He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.
Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.
Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.
