Truth : Oprah Winfrey Did Not Die Suddenly In A Hospital!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on social media, and YouTube, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Oprah Winfrey Is Still Alive + Well!

Oprah Winfrey (born Orpah Gail Winfrey on January 29, 1954) is still very much alive and well, as of July 12, 2023.

That was when she posted on Facebook about the fourth episode of “The Covenant of Water: The Podcast” with Abraham Verghese!

A day earlier – on July 11, she posted a video of herself speaking about her Love & Happiness Journal.

To be clear – Oprah Winfrey was not hospitalised for any serious disease. She did not commit suicide, or die in the hospital. She is still alive and well!

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Reported Her Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Oprah Winfrey’s death or suicide.

Oprah Winfrey is the “Queen of All Media” and one of the most influential woman in the world. If anything happened to her – even if she just fell down, it would have been worldwide news.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet reported that Oprah was hospitalised or died suddenly in a hospital from any cause. Only a bunch of small-time YouTube channels?!

That’s because it never happened. Oprah Winfrey is still alive, period.

Fact #3 : Scammers Using Fake Oprah Winfrey Death Video

Scammers were found to use a fake video claiming that Oprah Winfrey committed suicide to trick people into installing malware.

The “shocking video” was found to be linked to a fake Fox News Facebook app that, when installed, will request for permission to access the user’s basic information, and post on their behalf.

You should NEVER install any app to view any video, and you should certainly not allow any app to post on your behalf!

Note that scammers may send you the scam links via text messages. Even though telcos have now banned links in SMS messages, scammers can send you similar messages via WhatsApp or Telegram.

Fact #4 : Oprah Winfrey Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Oprah Winfrey death hoax, ironically, is also being driven by another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project.

News of television host Oprah Winfrey’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the July 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the former host of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Oprah Winfrey Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake excuse for writing about fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Oprah Winfrey’s unnamed reps confirming that she is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Taylor Swift, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Morgan Freeman, Simon Cowell, Madonna, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber, Harrison Ford, Sylvester StalloneTom Hanks, Toby Keith, Lucy Liu, Clint Eastwood, Dolly Parton, and Melanie Laurent.

She 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.
