Did Mel Gibson Call Prince William The Antichrist?!

Did Mel Gibson call Prince William the Antichrist, and the future king of the NWO’s one world government?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mel Gibson Called Prince William The Antichrist!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Mel Gibson just told staff and associates that Prince William is the Antichrist, and the future future king of the one-world government ushered in by the New World Order!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Mel Gibson: ‘Prince William Is the Antichrist’

Recommended : Was King Charles Just Exposed For Raping Children?!

 

No Evidence Mel Gibson Called Prince William The Antichrist!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Mel Gibson Called Prince William The Antichrist

The People’s Voice article claimed that Mel Gibson told his staff and associates that Prince William is the Antichrist, and the future king of the New World Order’s one world government.

However, a quick check showed that it is the only source for quotes attributed to Mel Gibson, which is surprising since celebrity blogs and mainstream media outlets have, and certainly would have, reported on such controversial claims… if he actually made them.

Yet, no one else has apparently seen Mel Gibson call Prince William the Antichrist. In fact, I can find any evidence Mel Gibson ever commented on Prince William! There is also no evidence Mel Gibson ever met Prince William either.

Unfortunately, but perhaps not surprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claims.

Fact #2 : Princess Diana Died In A Car Crash

The People’s Voice article claimed that Princess Diana was sacrificed in an Illuminati blood ritual.

That is easily disproven – Princess Diana and her partner, Dodi Fayed, died from injuries sustained in a fatal car crash in Paris, France.

The many photographers who were following their car, witnessed the crash. Some rushed to help the victims, while others took photographs. Needless to say – no one ever claimed to have witnessed Princess Diana being sacrificed in an Illuminati blood ritual.

Yet again, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that Princess Diana was sacrificed in an Illuminati blood ritual.

Fact #3 : Lethal Weapon 5 Has Not Been Confirmed

The People’s Voice article claimed that Mel Gibson is preparing to direct Lethal Weapon 5 in Los Angeles.

Well, Mel Gibson has been “preparing” to do that for years now. As of 19 February 2024, there is still no evidence that Lethal Weapon 5 has actually been “green-lit” for production this year.

In November 2021, Gibson revealed in a London interview that he was “in talks” to helm and direct Lethal Weapon 5, to honour his friend and the director of its previous films – Richard Donner, who passed away in July 2021.

Then in 2022, Mel Gibson expressed confidence in a Screenrant interview that Lethal Weapon 5 could arrive in 2023. However, that never happened.

Finally, Daniel RPK – a “semi-reliable industry insider” suggested that in December 2023, that Lethal Weapon 5 was in the works, with shooting expected to start in 2024, with Mel Gibson directing and reprising his role of Martin Riggs. He also suggested that Danny Glover will return as Roger Murtaugh.

That said – no one else – not Mel Gibson himself, Warner Bros or Danny Glover, have confirmed the rumour.

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Did Amy Schumer Develop VAIDS After Third Booster?!

Did Amy Schumer just reveal that she developed VAIDS after getting her third COVID-19 booster dose?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Amy Schumer Developed VAIDS After Third Booster!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Amy Schumer just revealed that she developed VAIDS after getting her third COVID-19 booster dose!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Amy Schumer Says She Developed VAIDS After Third Booster

Recommended : Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?!

 

Truth : Amy Schumer Did Not Develop VAIDS After Third Booster!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Amy Schumer Did Not Say She Developed VAIDS

The People’s Voice article claimed that Amy Schumer “revealed that she developed full-blown Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS) as a direct result of getting multiple COVID jabs“.

Amy Schumer has not made any statements claiming that she developed full-blown VAIDS after getting multiple COVID-19 vaccine injections.

As usual, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : Amy Schumer Said She Had Endometriosis

On Tuesday, 13 February 2024, Amy Schumer appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where people noticed that her face appeared puffier than usual.

After her puffy appearance went viral on social media, Amy posted on Instagram that she was going through “some medical and hormonal things” due to endometriosis.

I’ve enjoyed feedback and deliberation about my appearance as all women do for almost 20 years. And you’re right it is puffier than normal right now. I have endometriosis an auto immune disease that every woman should read about. There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now but I’m okay.

Fact #3 : Endometriosis Is Not AIDS

Just in case there is any confusion, endometriosis is not AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is caused by HIV – the Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

Why would anyone claim that Amy Schumer developed AIDS when she clearly stated that she has endometriosis???

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Planning To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS?!

Fact #4 : Vaccine AIDS Does Not Exist

This is silly, but let me also point out that there is no medical disease called VAIDS – Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. It appears to be something made-up by anti-vaccination activists to scare people.

AIDS is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Nothing else causes AIDS. Certainly no vaccine, not even the COVID-19 vaccine, causes AIDS.

Robert Charles Gallo – one of the two scientists who independently discovered that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was responsible for AIDS, said in response to the 2021 claim by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro that COVID-19 vaccines cause AIDS:

[I]t’s hard to believe anyone would claim that the covid-19 vaccine causes AIDS. We know what causes AIDS.

I don’t know what your president said. So I don’t want to be too critical. But it is obvious that neither the covid-19 vaccine nor any other vaccine causes AIDS.

Fact #5 : Study Did Not Mention AIDS / VAIDS!

The People’s Voice article pointed to a study which purportedly showed COVID-19 vaccines causing VAIDS in children. That’s not true.

The study did not mention AIDS, VAIDS, or even immunodeficiency. It was also conducted only in a laboratory, using blood samples from 29 children – none of whom were found to have developed any side effect or disease from their COVID-19 vaccinations!

So why would anyone claim that this study showed children developing Vaccine AIDS from the COVID-19 vaccines???

Fact #6 : Amy Schumer Had Endometriosis For Years

Just in case you think that Amy Schumer might have developed endometriosis from her COVID-19 vaccinations, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

For one thing – endometriosis affects roughly 10% of women in their reproductive age, since time immemorial.

But more to the point – Amy Schumer had been struggling with endometriosis for years. While she did not reveal when she was first diagnosed with endometriosis, she revealed that she had her uterus and appendix removed in September 2021, after years of suffering.

So, it’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out. The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.

There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus and I’m, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains.

Amy Schumer also revealed in August 2020 (before the COVID-19 vaccines were approved!) that she “couldn’t be pregnant ever again” due to how her endometriosis affected her fertility.

To be clear – Amy Schumer’s endometriosis isn’t new, or related to the COVID-19 vaccines. She has been suffering from endometriosis for many years.

Interestingly, the cover photo of The People’s Voice article were taken from Amy Schumer’s September 2021 Instagram posts. So it appears they knew she was suffering from endometriosis for many years, and it had nothing to do with multiple vaccine booster doses.

Did Bruce Willis Just Die On The Way To The Hospital?!

Did Bruce Willis just die suddenly on the way to the hospital?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-01-27 : Updated with new details and versions.
Originally posted @ 2023-05-30

People are sharing YouTube and Facebook videos claiming to prove that Bruce Willis just died suddenly at home, or on the way to the hospital, with titles like :

Truth : Bruce Willis Did Not Die On The Way To The Hospital!

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 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media reported Bruce Willis’ death.

Never mind the slew of ridiculously terrible movies he participated in before his retirement, Bruce Willis remains a Hollywood mega star. His diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) got front page news all over the world!

If Bruce Willis really did die, whether from his dementia, a car accident, or a heart attack, the worldwide media would have reported it. Such momentous news would not have been left to a bunch of small-time celebrity death blogs / small YouTube and Facebook channels!

The truth is – no legitimate media outlet reported that Bruce Willis died suddenly from any cause, because it never happened

Fact #2 : Bruce Willis Is Still Alive + Well!

Bruce Willis did not die, and is still very much alive and well, as of Saturday, 27 January, 2024. That was when he posted a photo of himself on his official Instagram account.

Bruce Willis officially retired from acting in March 2022, after his aphasia diagnosis, and his family announced that his aphasia was caused by frontotemporal dementia on February 16, 2023.

However, Bruce Willis did not die in 2022 or even February, May, August, or December 2023 as alleged by people on social media. He’s very much still alive!

In fact, on Tuesday, January 23, 2023, he posted a video on Instagram, showing him with his grandchildren at the beach.

Recommended : Did Simon Cowell Just Die In A Car Accident?!

Fact #3 : Bruce Willis Death Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of three examples used in many of these videos.

This photo that shows Bruce Willis on a hospital bed, was edited from a stock photo of an old man, taken by Raul Rodriguez. It’s titled “Elderly 80 plus year old man recovering from surgery in a hospital bed“.

In addition, the purple ribbon isn’t used for awareness of frontotemporal dementia, which is relatively uncommon. The purple ribbon is often used to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and pancreatic cancer.

Incidentally, frontotemporal dementia is different from Alzheimer’s disease, affecting a different part of the brain, and presenting with different symptoms.

Recommended : The Sara Lee Car Accident / Death Video Scam!

This photo of a large funeral is not of Bruce Willis, but of Irish makeup artist Cathriona White, taken on October 10, 2015.

If you look carefully, you can spot actor Jim Carrey looking sombre next to the pallbearer. He dated Cathriona White for three years, from 2012-2015. She died from a suicide by prescription drug overdose on September 28, 2015.

The fake news creator just added a photo of Bruce Willis, making it look like Jim Carrey and the lady beside him were carrying it. The truth is there was no photo, and they were just holding hands.

This photo of Bruce Willis’s funeral is also fake. This is actually a photo of Serbian folk singer, Šaban Šaulić, who died on February 17, 2019. His funeral was held on February 22, 2019.

The fake news creator flipped the photo, and superimposed a large and overly bright head of Sylvester Stallone together with a photo of Bruce Willis magically floating in front of him!

Fact #4 : Bruce Willis Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

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

News of actor Bruce Willis’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the January 2024 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 his roles in The Fifth Element or Die Hard is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Bruce Willis 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 Bruce Willis’ unnamed reps 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 Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

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.

Did Jamie Dornan Suffer Heart Attack From Vaccine?!

Did Jamie Dornan recently suffer a heart attack from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Dornan Suffered Heart Attack From Vaccine!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which suggests Irish actor Jamie Dornan recently suffered heart attack symptoms that was likely caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, but is instead being blamed on caterpillars by the media!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is (intentionally?) long and confusing. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Fully Vaccinated Actor Hospitalized With ‘Heart Attack Symptoms,’ Media Blames Caterpillars

Recommended : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

 

Truth : Jamie Dornan Did Not Suffer Heart Attack From Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Two Friends Were Hospitalised At The Same Time

I should start by pointing out that it wasn’t just Jamie Dornan who was hospitalised in Portugal. His friend, Gordon Smart, was hospitalised at the same time!

What do you think are the odds of two friends suffering a heart attack from their COVID-19 vaccinations at the same time? Of course, The People’s Voice article offered no evidence that their hospitalisations were due to COVID-19 vaccines.

Perhaps that’s why the long article curiously left out Jamie Dornan’s friend who was hospitalised at the same time! It would have introduced too many inconvenient questions, wouldn’t it?

Fact #2 : Jamie Dornan Did Not Suffer A Heart Attack

The People’s Voice article suggested that Jamie Dornan suffered heart attack symptoms, and is the “latest young and healthy person to be struck down with a bizarre health ailment”. Well, that’s not really true.

Sometime in March 2023, Jamie Dornan went on a golf trip in Portugal with three friends – one of whom was Scottish broadcaster Gordon Smart.

As Gordon Smart recounted the story on a BBC comedy podcast, he (not Jamie Dornan) started feeling some “tingling” in his “left hand” and “left arm”, which he thought was “normally the sign of the start of a heart attack”.

It was Gordon Smart who was taken to the local hospital, where his heart beat was measured at 210 beats per minute (tachycardia). It was at the hospital where he saw Jamie Dornan as well. According to Smart, Jamie Dornan was hospitalised soon after him, after his limbs went numb:

There [Dornan] was with all this stuff attached to this chair saying, ‘Gordon, about 20 minutes after you left, my left arm went numb, my left leg went numb, my right leg went numb. And I found myself in the back of an ambulance.

Gordon Smart never said that Jamie Dornan suffered a heart attack. In fact, Gordon never said he suffered a heart attack either. He only “thought” the tingling sensation he experienced might be early symptoms of a heart attack.

Recommended : Did WHO Unveil Global Police Force With Arrest Powers?!

Fact #3 : Hospitalisation Claim Was Refuted

Jamie Dornan himself never spoke about his hospitalisation in Portugal. In fact, a source close to Dornan refuted Gordon Smart’s story:

He never went into the hospital — he even played a game of golf the next day and won.

Fact #4 : It Was Gordon Smart Who Mentioned Caterpillars

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that the mainstream media came up with the story that Jamie Dornan’s health scare was caused by toxic caterpillars. That’s not true either.

It was Gordon Smart (again) who mentioned in the BBC comedy podcast that their health scare was likely caused by the pine processionary caterpillars. He said that he received a “phone call from the doctor” a week after the golf trip, to ask if the group came in contact with caterpillars on the golf course.

The doctor also sent him a local news story about processionary caterpillars, which have thousands of tiny hairs that have an irritating protein called thaumetopoei, which can cause rashes and allergic reactions.

It turns out that there are caterpillars on golf courses in the south of Portugal that have been killing people’s dogs and giving men in their 40s heart attacks. It turns out we brushed up against processionary caterpillars and had been very lucky to come out of that one alive.

So there’s my story. The good news is it wasn’t a caffeine overdose, it wasn’t a hangover. It was a poisonous, toxic caterpillar.

Even though Gordon Smart suggested that the caterpillars might cause heart attacks, the truth is – pine processionary caterpillars do not cause heart attacks. They can cause severe rashes, and allergic reactions, but not heart attacks.

Did Sylvester Stallone Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Did Sylvester Stallone just die suddenly in the hospital?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-01-26 : Added new updates, including updated MediaMass claim.
Originally posted @ 2023-04-12

 

Claim : Sylvester Stallone Just Died Suddenly In Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube and TikTok videos claiming to show Sylvester Stallone just died in a hospital, with titles like :

Recommended : Did Cristiano Ronaldo Just Die In Tragic Car Accident?!

 

Truth : Sylvester Stallone Did Not Die Suddenly Anywhere!

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 : Sylvester Stallone Is Still Alive + Well!

Hollywood legend, Sylvester Stallone (born Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone on July 6, 1946), is still very much alive and well, as of 26 January 2024.

For those who readily believe claims that Sylvester Stallone has died without even asking for evidence, here are some recent “proof of life”…

On 18 January 2024, Syl Stallone posted on his official Instagram account about the upcoming second season of his reality TV show – The Family Stallone.

Just last month, Sylvester Stallone posted a video of himself on 13 December 2023, speaking about never giving up when the time gets tough.

As you can see, Sly Stallone is still very much alive and well, even regularly keeping in shape in his gym – weeks and months after these fake YouTube videos claimed that he died in a hospital, at home, or even on the street!

Recommended : Did Dolly Parton Just Die Suddenly From A Stroke?!

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

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

Sylvester Stallone is a Hollywood icon, starring in the Rocky and Rambo movies, as well as more recently, The Expendables movies.

No legitimate media outlet reported that Sylvester Stallone was sick, much less died suddenly in a hospital!

If Sylvester Stallone did indeed die, the worldwide media would have reported on his death. Yet, no one but small YouTube and TikTok channels picked up on his tragic death? That’s because it never happened.

Fact #3 : The Photos Were Edited

The photos used in these videos were edited from real photos, with some celebrities added in to make it look genuine. In this example, the fake news creator added Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

The actual photo is of the February 2019 funeral of Argentinian footballer, Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash off Alderney on 21 January 2019.

The photo was taken by Associated Press, and shows Nantes defender Nicolas Pallois and Emiliano Sala’s brother, Dario, helping to carry his coffin at his funeral on 19 February 2019.

Recommended : Did Lucy Liu Just Die In A Training Accident?!

Even when it comes to the really good photo-editing efforts, there are still some clues to show you that these were edited images.

In this example, you can see that Sylvester Stallone’s chin appeared to be cut out. More damning is pillow which had a Queensland Health logo on it.

Unless Sylvester Stallone happened to be filming in Queensland, Australia; there is no way he would end up being treated in its hospital!

Fact #4 : Sylvester Stallone Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Sylvester Stallone death hoax is, ironically, also being driven by a fact check article by the MediaMass Project.

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Alec Musser Died From COVID-19 / Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Alec Musser died unexpectedly at just 50 years of age, some people immediately claimed that the the former TV star died suddenly from vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), while others suggested that he died from COVID-19 even though he was fully-vaccinated!

Truth : Alec Musser Did Not Die From COVID-19 / Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Alec Musser Died In His Home

Alec Musser (born Alexander Barrett Musser on 11 April 1973) was an American actor and fitness model, who starred in the popular soap opera, All My Children after winning the reality TV contest, I Wanna Be A Soap Star, in August 2005.

His fiancee, Paige Press, last saw him on Friday night, 12 January 2024. She found Alec Musser dead at their home in Del Mar, California, the next morning. Paramedics and law enforcement officers responded to the scene, and confirmed his death.

Paige would later tell Fox News that Musser was suffering from “a severe case of COVID”, and she believes he died from the illness. She also said that an autopsy would be conducted.

He was a very healthy person. I mean he took exceptional care of his body and what went into it. …He’d eat some cookies and that was the worst thing I ever saw him do.

Fact #2 : Alec Musser Died By Gun Suicide

On Tuesday, 16 January 2024, the San Diego Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that Alec Musser died by suicide, and that his death was gruesome. He apparently shot himself in the chest using a shotgun.

According to TMZ (archive), the story was quite different from what was reported earlier. Apparently, Paige Press went to bed on Friday evening, and woke the next morning to find Alec Musser slumped over on their bathroom floor, with the shotgun near him.

Case Number : 2024-00141
Name : MUSSER, Alexander Barrett
City of Residence : Del Mar
State of Residence : California
DOB : 04/11/1973
Gender : Male
Place of Death : Found, home, 345 10th Street, Del Mar, California, 92014, San Diego, USA
Place of injury : Home, 345 10th Street, Del Mar, California, 92014, San Diego, USA
Date and time of death : 01/13/2024 0643
Date and time of Injury : 01/–/2024 Unk
Summary : The decedent was a 50-year old White male who lived with his fiancée in a home in Del Mar. His fiancée last knew him to be alive on the evening of 01/12/2024 when she had gone to bed. On the morning of 01/13/2024, she awoke and went to find the decedent seated and slumped forward on the bathroom floor. She noted a firearm near him and an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest and called 911. Paramedics and law enforcement responded and confirmed the death.
Cause of Death/Updated CoD : Shotgun wound of the chest
Contributing Conditions : None
Manner : Suicide
Investigating Agency : San Diego Sheriff
Next of kin notified : Yes

So there you have it – definitive proof that Alec Musser died by suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Alec Musser did not die from severe COVID-19, vaccine SADS, or any COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Alec Musser Had Severe COVID-19

According to Fox News, his fiancee said that Alec Musser was suffering from severe COVID-19, and she believed he died from COVID-19.

However, the San Diego Department of Medical Examiner’s case report did not mention that Alec Musser tested positive for COVID-19, or was suffering from COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Alec Musser Was Likely Vaccinated

According to Fox News, his fiancee said that Alec Musser was fully-vaccinated and boosted. While I would chalk that up as “likely” true, I would not call it definitive as the same Fox News report (archive) also claimed that his fiancee believed that he died from COVID-19.

As the coroner’s office stated, Paige Press found Alec Musser dead from a gunshot to his chest. So it would be most peculiar for her to claim that he died from severe COVID-19, or point out to Fox News that he was fully-vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.

His fiancée, Paige Press, says Musser was suffering from “a severe case of Covid,” and believes he died from the illness. He was both vaccinated and boosted. She says he died at their home in Del Mar, California.

In any case, Alec Musser’s death by gun suicide had nothing to do with whether he was fully-vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.

Was Brad Pitt Just Found Dead From Suicide?!

Was Brad Pitt just found dead from suicide?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Brad Pitt Was Just Found Dead From Suicide!

People are sharing YouTube videos and Facebook posts claiming that Brad Pitt just died, or was found dead from suicide, with titles like :

FOX Breaking News: Brad Pitt found dead (Suicide)

R.I.P country actor Brad Pitt passed away last night, fans burst into tears.

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In A High Speed Car Crash?!

 

Truth : Brad Pitt Was Not Found Dead From Suicide!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from scams, page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Brad Pitt Suicide Ad Was FB Malware

Let me start by warning you that the Brad Pitt being found dead from suicide was a malware scam that circulated through a Facebook advertisement.

Those who clicked on it were directed to a scam website which tries to trick users into installing malware, rogue Facebook apps, rogue antivirus scanners, or tricked into divulging personal information through fake surveys.

Some were also asked to allow a fake Fox News app to gain permission to their profiles. Those who bypassed the permission pop-up were directed to a fake story about Brad Pitt’s suicide:

Brad Pitt, 52, a multi-awarded American actor and husband of Angelina Jolie, 41, shot himself in the head at a shooting range on Sunday. He was under significant stress because the couple “were going through a divorce and he had a history of depression”, sources have said.”

After extensive media coverage, Facebook finally issued a warning to advise people not to click on the fake advertisement, and to warn those who did so earlier, to change their account passwords and scan for malware.

Fact #2 : Brad Pitt Is Still Alive

Brad Pitt (born William Bradley Pitt on December 18, 1963) is still alive as of 21 January 2024. In fact, he was just spotted in public several days ago!

Even though Brad Pitt is notoriously a very private person, he was seen entering the Gagosian Gallery with his new girlfriend, Ines de Ramon, on Friday, 19 January 2024.

Wearing a brown leather bomber jacket, Brad Pitt looked very healthy for someone who is supposed to have died!

Recommended : Did Simon Cowell Just Die In A Car Accident?!

That night, Brat Pitt and Ines de Ramon attended an exhibition by his Moneybag director, Bennett Miller. Britney Spears’ ex-husband, Sam Asghari, was also there. He asked Pitt for a selfie, and later went to chat with Pitt’s former in-laws, James Haven and Jon Voight.

As you can clearly see, Brad Pitt is still very much alive… and looking great!

Fact #3 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

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

Brad Pitt is one of the most famous celebrities in the world. If he only tripped and fell while walking along Hollywood Boulevard, it would have been international news, covered by celebrity blogs and media outlets.

No legitimate media outlet, or even celebrity blog, reported that Brad Pitt was found dead from suicide, or died suddenly from any cause, because it’s simply not true. Why should you believe some small-time or YouTube channel or random Facebook posts?!

Fact #4 : Brad Pitt Funeral Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.

This photo used to show Brad Pitt’s funeral is actually a photo from the funeral of Fernando Gaitan, the Colombian TV producer and screenwriter who created the telenovela Yo soy Betty, la fea, which has been adapted in multiple countries.

The funeral was held in Bogota, on Thursday, 31 January 2019. Obviously, that was not Brad Pitt’s funeral, as he was very much alive at that time!

The fake news creator merely added a photo of Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie holding up his photo.

Recommended : The Sara Lee Car Accident / Death Video Scam!

This photo does not show Brad Pitt’s coffin being carried out during his funeral. It actually shows the coffin of one of the six Philpott children during their funeral in June 2012. They were murdered by their parents, Mick and Mairead Philpott, who set fire to their home.

If you look carefully, you can see that the pallbearers are carrying multiple coffins. Did it not strike you strange that Brad Pitt’s funeral would have more than one coffin???

Also, the coffin looked remarkably small for an adult. That’s because the coffin was for a 10 year-old little girl called Jade. The fake news creator merely tacked on a photo of Brad Pitt to fool you into believing that it was his funeral.

Fact #5 : Brad Pitt Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

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

News of actor Brad Pitt’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the January 2024 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 his roles in Fight Club, Legends of the Fall or A River Runs Through It is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Brad Pitt 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 Brad Pitt’s unnamed reps confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

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.

Was Oprah Just Exposed In Jeffrey Epstein Client List?!

Was Oprah Winfrey just exposed in the Jeffrey Epstein list, as one of his clients?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Oprah Winfrey Just Exposed As Jeffrey Epstein Client!

People are claiming on social media that Oprah Winfrey was just exposed in the Jeffrey Epstein list, as one of his clients. At least one person even claimed that she was arrested as a result!

Donald J. Trump 🇺🇸 News : 🚨JUST IN: Oprah Winfrey has been revealed as a client on The Epstein List.

Recommended : Was Oprah Winfrey Just Arrested + Jailed In Gitmo?!

 

Truth : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested Or Exposed As Epstein Client!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on social media platforms like Facebook and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Jeffrey Epstein List Is All-Encompassing

First, I should point out that the so-called “Jeffrey Epstein list” that was released as by New York judge Loretta A. Preska, is not is a list of his clients, or people who were somehow complicit in his crimes.

The list of names that is set to be released soon comprises of everyone involved or named in the defamation lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre against Ghislaine Maxwell – Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend and convicted accomplice. For example:

  • People who were accused of wrongdoing
  • People making those accusations of wrongdoing
  • Victims of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and/or their associates,
  • Potential witnesses to those crimes, or witnesses called by the defense
  • Employees of Jeffrey Epstein or Ghislaine Maxwell
  • People who visited Jeffrey Epstein’s home or island
  • People who flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane

In other words – this Jeffrey Epstein list is not his “black book” of people who took part in his crimes, or abetted them. It comprises of people who was once associated with Jeffrey Epstein or Ghislaine Maxwell, including victims and witnesses.

Fact #2 : Epstein Is Not Weinstein

I should also point out that Jeffrey Epstein is not Harvey Weinstein. Their surnames may rhyme, but they are not related, and are completely different men.

Yet, people who posted about Oprah Winfrey being “exposed” in the Jeffrey Epstein List as a client, bizarrely used this photo of Oprah and Harvey Weinstein.

Did they confuse the two men because they had similar-sounding surnames? Or did they use the Oprah-Weinstein photo because they couldn’t find any Oprah-Epstein photo?

Recommended : Jeffrey Epstein List : Watch Out For Fake Lists!

Fact #3 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested

This is really silly, but it has to be said – Oprah Winfrey was not arrested after being “exposed” in the Jeffrey Epstein List.

Oprah Winfrey is a mega celebrity, and one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of $3.5 billion as of May 2023. If she was ever arrested, it would have been international news.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, not even celebrity blogs, have reported that Oprah Winfrey was in any legal trouble, never mind arrested!

On top of that, Oprah posted a video on Instagram on Monday, 15 January 2024, in which she thanked Dolce & Gabbana for the purple dress she wore to the 29th Critics’ Choice Awards the day earlier.

Needless to say – she was seen in public, with the other cast members of The Color Purple, at the Critics’ Choice Award on Sunday, January 14 2024!

Recommended : Did Jamie Lee Curtis Post Photo Of Naked Child In Box?!

Fact #4 : Oprah Was Only Mentioned Incidentally

In the court documents released by Judge Preska, Oprah’s name came up five times. However, she was never mentioned as a witness, a victim, or a potential accomplice. In fact, her name only came up incidentally!

Exhibit 1 : Oprah’s name appeared in the screenshot of a Daily Mail article (in a separate suggested article called Oprah sells Gustav Klimt painting for whopping $150million to private buyer in China…).

Exhibit 8 : Oprah’s name appeared in the screenshot of a Radar Online article (in a separate suggested article called Oprah Surprisingly Says Goodbye To Her Neighbor Ellen Degeneres).

In the remaining three mentions (here, here and here), Oprah was referenced in a single email between Sharon Churcher and a book agent, as a description of the “market” Virginia Giuffre’s book would appeal to:

Hi Jarred

Hopefully you have Virginia’ s book pitch by now.

She has some amazing names which she can share with you in confidence and I think she also has a human interest story that could appeal to the Oprah/female set as well as the Wall Streeters who follow Epstein — a hedge fund king.

In short – Oprah was quite irrelevant in the Giuffre vs. Maxwell case. Her name appeared incidentally in some documents, but she was never mentioned as an individual of interest.

Did Jamie Lee Curtis Post Photo Of Naked Child In Box?!

Did Jamie Lee Curtis really post a photo of a naked child in a box?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Lee Curtis Posted Photo Of Naked Child In Box!

People are posting screenshots of an Instagram post which shows that Jamie Lee Curtis has a photo of a naked child in a box hanging on her wall!

Gina Bontempo : Why does Jamie Lee Curtis have a painting of a naked child stuffed in a box hanging on her wall? She deleted this whole thing shortly after posting it.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Why Jamie Lee Curtis Has Photo Of Naked Child On Her Wall!

Here is what you need to know about Jamie Lee Curtis and the photo of a naked child on her wall…

Fact #1 : Jamie Lee Curtis Posted It In January 2023

First, let me start by confirming the photo / screenshot is genuine. In fact, Jamie Lee posted the original photo on her Instagram account.

OK. This is a weird post. But I have Covid, so fuck it. During one of the SAG nomination panels for @everythingeverywheremovie I told the story of how I ended up with my office furnished with my beautiful Pollack chairs from that movie. I mentioned that if people followed me, that was not a cheap trick to try to get people to boost my numbers, but I couldn’t figure out how else to get the picture out into the world, that I would post a picture of them on my IC in my offices for @comet.pictures and I am a truth teller so here you go.

However, the renewed 2024 interest in Jamie Lee Curtis and the photo of a naked child on her wall is peculiar, as she posted the photo in January 2023 – a year ago!

Fact #2 : Jamie Lee Curtis Addressed The Controversy

After conservative media personalities and conspiracy theorists called her taste in art “creepy” or “sick”, or linked it to Jeffrey Epstein and the Balenciaga BDSM scandal, Jamie Lee Curtis quickly deleted her Instagram post.

She later addressed the controversy, stating that it was a photograph by an artist who gifted it to her 20 years earlier:

Last week I posted a picture of some chairs that included a photograph on the wall by an artist that was gifted to me 20 years ago.

Fact #3 : It Was Photographer’s Daughter In A Tub Of Water

There have been suggestions that the viral photo showed a naked child in a suitcase, or a box, insinuating that it celebrated or condoned child abuse or child pornography.

Some have also suggested that it was a photo of one of Jamie Lee Curtis’ adopted daughters – Annie Guest or Ruby Guest, or an unnamed niece. None of that is true.

The truth is – the photo shows the photographer’s daughter in a small plastic tub filled with water, as Jamie Lee Curtis explained:

As I have said, I am a truth teller so here’s the truth. It’s a picture of a child, taken by her mother, of her playing in their backyard in a tub of water. Nothing more, nothing less. I took down the post because I didn’t want to keep something up that upset anyone.

There isn’t anything nefarious or unseemly about the photo – many parents take similarly innocent photos of their children. Perhaps only perverts can see the perversion in such photos?

Fact #4 : It Was Taken By Betsy Schneider

The photo was actually taken by Betsy Schneider, a notable American photographer who often publishes and exhibits photos of her family.

The viral photo, in particular, is called The Tub, and was taken in 2003, as part of her photo series, Sweet is the Swamp.

I should point out that Betsy Schneider was one of just 9 photographers to be awarded the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in 2011. If she ever gifted me a print, I would certainly have it framed and mounted on my wall!

Did Angelina Jolie Die Suddenly From Stroke?!

Did Angelina Jolie just die suddenly from a stroke?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Angelina Jolie Died Suddenly From A Stroke!

People are sharing YouTube videos and articles which claim that Angelina Jolie just died suddenly from a stroke or cancer or unknown causes, with titles like :

RIP! Angelina Jolie Is No More | Sad News About Angelina Jolie

Died in the hospital / The doctor just announced the sad news of the passing of Angelina Jolie

Recommended : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

 

Truth : Angelina Jolie Did Not Die Suddenly At All!

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 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported Her 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 her death.

Angelina Jolie is not just a celebrity, she is also prominent for her humanitarian work. Even if she did not die, the worldwide media would have reported on her health issues, as they did when she underwent a preventive double mastectomy in 2013, and a preventive salpingo-oopherectomy in 2015.

No legitimate media outlet reported that Angelina Jolie was hospitalised for any reason, never mind dying suddenly from a stroke or a car accident. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Angelina Jolie Is Still Alive + Well!

Angelina Jolie is still very much alive and well, as of Monday, 8 January 2024. Of course, you need actual “proof of life”, right?

Well, Angelina Jolie posted an Instagram video on 18 December 2023, which shows her discussing the documentary “We Dare to Dream” with its filmmaker, Ward Al-Kataeb.

As you can see – Angelina Jolie is not dead, or in the hospital. She certainly looks alive and very healthy for someone who allegedly died from a stroke or a car accident!

Recommended : Did Dolly Parton Just Die Suddenly From A Stroke?!

Fact #3 : Angelina Jolie Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.

This photo which claims to show Angelina Jolie lying on a hospital bed, was edited from a real photo of Leila McKinnon.

The Australian Ninja Warrior host and Channel 9 presenter posted that photo on her Instagram account on 26 April 2022, after undergoing knee surgery following a skiing accident.

If you look carefully, you will notice that Angelina Jolie mysteriously has some blonde hair, behind her brunette hair. That’s because the fake news creator did not edit out the hair after superimposing her face!

Recommended : Did Lucy Liu Just Die In A Training Accident?!

This photo does not show Angelina Jolie’s funeral. It was originally taken on Thursday, 24 March 2016, in the town of Ballymagroarty, in Derry, Northern Ireland.

If you look carefully, you will notice that the coffin is really too small to hold the body of an adult like Angelina Jolie. That’s because it’s the coffin of an 8 year-old boy called Evan McGrotty.

Evan McGrotty died with his 12 year-old brother Mark, 46 year-old father Sean, as well as 57 year-old grandmother Ruth Daniels, and her 14 year-old Jodie Lee Daniels, when their Audi Q7 lost grip on a thick blanket of algae and slid off the slipway at the Buncrana harbour in Donegal, and sank to the bottom of the sea.

The fake news creator flipped the photo horizontally to make it more difficult to conduct a reverse image search, and added a photo of Angelina Jolie on top of the coffin.

Fact #4 : Simon Cowell Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Simon Cowell 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 actress Angelina Jolie’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world.

Did Daniela Costa Die From mRNA Vaccine SADS?!

Did Spanish actress Daniela Costa die suddenly from mRNA COVID-19 vaccine SADS?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Daniela Costa Died Suddenly From mRNA Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Daniela Costa died, some people are claiming or suggesting that the 42 year-old Spanish actress died suddenly from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine!

William Makis MD : Spanish actress – 42 year old Daniela Costa died suddenly on Dec.14, 2023.

Cause of death not disclosed. COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine sudden deaths are at an all time high

#DiedSuddenly #cdnpoli #ableg #Pfizer #Moderna

Recommended : Did Study Show COVID-19 Vaccines Can Worsen Cancer?!

 

Truth : Daniela Costa Did Not Die From mRNA Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Daniela Costa Died From Breast Cancer

First, let me just point out that Daniela Costa (born 1981 in Barcelona, Spain) died on 15 December 2023 from breast cancer. She did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine or mRNA vaccine side effect.

It is surprising to see people claiming that a cause of death was not provided. Her husband, Oskar Salcedo, who announced her death on Facebook, clearly stated that she died from breast cancer.

El Amor de mi Vida!!!
Mi querida compañera y madre de nuestro hijo Daniela Costa, nos dejo ayer en este plano físico, para unirse con Dios y el Universo, descansando en Paz!!!
La terrible enfermedad del Cancer de mama pudo con ella!!!

The Love of my Life!!!
My dear companion and mother of our son Daniela Costa, left us yesterday on this physical plane, to join God and the Universe, resting in Peace!!!
The terrible disease of breast cancer took her!!!

Recommended : Did Pamela Villanueva Collapse From Vaccine On Live TV?!

Fact #2 : Breast Cancer Is Deadliest Cancer In Women

According to the Spanish Network of Cancer Registries, breast cancer is the deadliest cancer in women for the year 2020 (PDF), accounting for 15.1% of all cancer deaths in women.

On top of that, Spain has been seeing a yearly increase of 0.9% in breast cancer cases every year, from 2002 to 2020. This yearly increase was seen years before COVID-19 vaccinations started in earnest.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Daniela Coasta Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Daniela Costa was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Daniela Costa was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Spain. In fact, as of May 2023 (source), Spain only fully vaccinated 85.7% of its population, with a further 1.3% receiving only one dose. That means about 13% of Spaniards remain unvaccinated against COVID-19.

On top of that, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless Daniela (or her family) reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Daniela Costa was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Recommended : More Vaccine Lies Exposed In Died Suddenly Movie!

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Daniela Costa was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses more than two years ago!

She cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Did Tom Cruise Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Did Tom Cruise just mysteriously die suddenly in a hospital, from an unspecified cause of death?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Tom Cruise Just Died Suddenly In Hospital!

A number of YouTube channels are claiming that the Tom Cruise just mysteriously died suddenly in a hospital, from an unspecified cause of death!

5 Minute Ago / Suddenly famous actor Tom Cruise died and everyone is saying farewell

Tom Cruise Has Passed Away At The Age Of 61, Fans Can Not Stop Crying At His Funeral.

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In A High Speed Car Crash?!

 

Truth : Tom Cruise Did Not Just Die Suddenly!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS reated and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported that Tom Cruise has died.

Tom Cruise is more than just a famous actor, he is a Hollywood icon. Even if he only tripped in public and fell on his butt, it would have been breathlessly reported by the celebrity blogs, if not the mainstream media.

No legitimate media outlet reported that Tom Cruise was sick or hospitalised, never mind mysteriously dying suddenly. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Tom Cruise Is Still Alive + Well!

Tom Cruise (born Thomas Cruise Mapother IV on 3 July 1962) is very much alive, as of Sunday, 31 December 2023. But of course, you want “proof of life”, don’t you?

Well, Tom Cruise was seen with a former Russian model and socialite, Elsina Khayrova, at a party in London’s Mayfair on Saturday, 9 December 2023. They later went on a date in London’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.

But frankly speaking – people should really be asking for proof of Tom Cruise’s sudden death, whenever they see one of those viral videos or articles claiming that he suddenly died!

Recommended : Did Harrison Ford Just Die In Hospital / Plane Crash?!

Fact #3 : Tom Cruise Funeral Photos Are Fake

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.

This photo of a large funeral was not of Tom Cruise, but of Irish makeup artist Cathriona White, taken on October 10, 2015.

If you look carefully, you can spot actor Jim Carrey looking sombre next to the pallbearer. He dated Cathriona White for three years, from 2012-2015. She died from a suicide by prescription drug overdose on September 28, 2015.

The fake news creator just added a photo of Tom Cruise, making it look like Jim Carrey and the lady beside him were carrying it. The truth is there was no photo, and they were just holding hands.

Recommended : Did Lucy Liu Just Die In A Training Accident?!

And this photo is so absurd, it beggars belief that so many people fell for it! After all, it was a poorly-edited photo with the overly large heads of John Travolta and Connor Cruise (Tom Cruise’s son) overlaid onto the real photo.

The original photo was taken on 17 November 2017, at the funeral of Margaret McAlorum, the 63 year-old mother of murdered schoolgirl, Megan McAlorum, at the Belfast City Cemetery in Northern Ireland.

Fact #4 : Tom Cruse Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Tom Cruise 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 Tom Cruise’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the December 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 his roles in Mission: Impossible, Jerry Maguire, Rain Man or Top Gun is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Tom Cruise 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 Barry Gibb’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 Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Cristiano Ronaldo, Clint Eastwood, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justin Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, and Tom Hanks.

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.

Matthew Perry : Actual Cause of Death Confirmed!

The LA County Medical Officer has finally determined the cause of death for Matthew Perry!

Find out if Matthew Perry really died from drowning after suffering a cardiac arrest, or from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Updated @ 2023-12-17 : Added Matthew Perry’s official cause of death

Matthew Perry Died Suddenly In His Hot Tub!

The Internet is just obsessed with Matthew Perry’s sudden death. Not only because so many of us have such fond memories of Chandler Bing in Friends, but also because Matthew Perry died suddenly under bizarre circumstances.

He was said to have accidentally drowned in his hot tub, while other people claim that he suffered a cardiac arrest. Anti-vaccination proponents naturally claimed that Matthew Perry died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Matthew Perry : Cause of Death Confirmed!

Here are the latest updates on the circumstances surrounding Matthew Perry, and his sudden death in his bathtub.

On Saturday, 28 October 2023, Matthew Perry played an hour game of pickleball at the Riviera Country Club in the morning – shorter than usual. According to Extra host, Billy Bush, his pickleball partner said that he had been feeling tired for the past week, and on the day itself.

I spoke to the woman he [Matthew Perry] played with this morning and every morning. She said he had been fatigued today and over the past week. A little more than usual. He played for one hour, then went home.

When he got home, he sent his assistant out on an errand. When his assistant returned two hours later, he discovered Matthew unresponsive, and under water in his hot tub.

His assistant called 911, at around 4 PM, which was confirmed by a representative for the Los Angeles Police Department:

West L.A. officers responded to [a residence] at 4:10 p.m. for a Death Investigation of a male in his 50s.

Recommended : Clint Eastwood Just Died On The Way To Hospital?!

The assistant lifted Matthew Perry’s head from under the water, and tried to get him some air. But by the time first responders got to his Pacific Palisades home, Matthew Perry was already dead.

Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Erik Scott said:

Los Angeles City Firefighters responded [and] found an adult male unconscious in a stand-alone hot tub.

A bystander had brought the man’s head above the water and gotten him to the edge, then firefighters removed him from the water upon their arrival.

A rapid medical assessment, sadly, revealed the man was deceased prior to first responder arrival.

Sadly, it was reported that Matthew Perry wasn’t in his hot tub for very long before his apparent drowning. Law enforcement officers noted that his body was not waterlogged, when first responders arrived.

Recommended : Did Matt Ulrich Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

There appears to be some confusion about the earlier claims of him dying from cardiac arrest, which stemmed from reports that first responders were called to the scene for a cardiac arrest.

The 15-second dispatch call has emerged, revealing that it was his assistant who reported a cardiac arrest to 911. But first responders were actually called to the scene for a drowning.

Agent 23. Rescue 23, EMS 9 [Emergency Medical Situation 9 refers to a drowning] on the radio. In response to the drowning.

It is unknown if he actually suffered a cardiac arrest. He could have fallen unconscious for any number of reasons. At this point in time – Matthew Perry’s official cause of death has not been revealed, or confirmed.

Captain Scot Williams of Los Angeles Police Department said that his Robbery-Homicide Division was investigating Matthew Perry’s sudden death, but no foul play was suspected at this time:

The Robbery-Homicide Division is handling the death investigation involving Matthew Perry and foul play is not suspected at this time.

Recommended : Is Celine Dion Now Forced To Use A Wheelchair?!

While unnamed sources at the scene claimed that no drugs were found at the scene, the LAPD Captain Scot Williams refused to comment on what its officers recovered at the scene:

I will not comment on what was or was not recovered at the scene, as the investigation is ongoing.

Sources told TMZ that law enforcement officers did not find any illegal drugs, but they found prescription drugs, specifically anti-depressants, and anti-anxiety drugs, as well as an unnamed drug for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy was conducted on Matthew Perry (Case 2023-14789, now removed), but the determination of his official cause of death was deferred, pending toxicology results.

Recommended : Did Lionel Messi Just Die In High Speed Car Accident?!

On 8 November 2023, The Blast obtained Matthew Perry’s death certificate. It too said that the official cause of death is being deferred pending toxicology reports.

However, initial toxicology reports indicate that there was no meth or fentanyl in his system when he drowned. His death certificate officially recorded his time of death as 4:17 PM.

On Friday, 15 December 2023, the Medical Examiner revealed Matthew Perry’s official cause of death – acute effects of ketamine, although the exact method of intake was unknown. The manner of his death was ruled as an accident (drug and drowning related).

Matthew Perry was reportedly receiving ketamine infusion therapy prior to his death for depression and anxiety. However, his last known treatment was 1.5 weeks prior to his death, and could not have been a contributing factor.

Per the Medical Examiner Investigator’s report, his last known treatment was 1½ weeks prior to death, and the ketamine in his system at death could not be from that infusion therapy, since ketamine’s half-life is 3 to 4 hours, or less.

The toxicology report stated that Perry had such high levels of ketamine in his blood that it ultimately led to his death from “cardiovascular overstimulation” and “respiratory depression“. It noted that Matthew Perry had blood ketamine levels of up to 3.54 mg/dL, when the levels for general anaesthesia in surgery was between 1.0 to 6.0 mg/dL.

At the high levels of ketamine found in his postmortem blood specimens, the main lethal effects would be from both cardiovascular overstimulation and respiratory depression.

The postmortem report also listed other contributing factors to Matthew Perry’s death – drowning, coronary artery disease, and the effects of buprenorphine (which is used to treat opioid addiction).

While the autopsy report could not determine how Matthew Perry received such a high dose of ketamine (trace amounts was found in his stomach contents), what is certain is that he died from an ketamine, and not from the COVID-19 vaccine, or some other cause of death.

Fact : Matthew Perry Did Not Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Matthew Perry Drowned In His Hot Tub

Matthew Perry (born Matthew Langford Perry on 19 August 1969) was most famous for starring as Chandler Bing in the NBC sitcom, Friends, from 1994 to 2004. He also appeared in Ally McBeal, The West Wing, The Odd Couple, and The Good Wife.

On Saturday, 28 October 2023, Matthew Perry played a two-hour game of pickleball in the morning, and then sent his assistant out on an errand. When his assistant returned two hours later, he discovered Matthew unresponsive, and underwater in his hot tub.

A representative for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed, saying:

West L.A. officers responded to [a residence] at 4:10 p.m. for a Death Investigation of a male in his 50s.

His assistant lifted his head from under the water, and tried to get him some air, and then called 911. But by the time first responders got to his Pacific Palisades home, Matthew Perry was already dead.

Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Erik Scott said:

Los Angeles City Firefighters responded [and] found an adult male unconscious in a stand-alone hot tub.

The 15-second dispatch call has emerged, revealing that it was his assistant who reported a cardiac arrest to 911. But first responders were actually called to the scene for a drowning.

Agent 23. Rescue 23, EMS 9 [Emergency Medical Situation 9 refers to a drowning] on the radio. In response to the drowning.

In other words – it was unknown, at that time, if he actually suffered a cardiac arrest. He could have fallen unconscious for any number of reasons.

Fact #2 : No Foul Play Was Suspected

Captain Scot Williams of Los Angeles Police Department said that his Robbery-Homicide Division was investigating Matthew Perry’s sudden death, but no foul play was suspected:

The Robbery-Homicide Division is handling the death investigation involving Matthew Perry and foul play is not suspected at this time.

While unnamed sources at the scene claimed that no drugs were found at the scene, the LAPD Captain Scot Williams refused to comment on what its officers recovered at the scene:

I will not comment on what was or was not recovered at the scene, as the investigation is ongoing.

Fact #3 : Matthew Perry Died From Acute Effects Of Ketamine

An autopsy was conducted on Matthew Perry by the LA County Medical Examiner, and his body was marked as ready for release to his family.

However, the preliminary autopsy report (Case 2023-14789, now removed) stated that determination of his official cause of death was deferred, pending toxicology results.

On Friday, 15 December 2023, the Medical Examiner revealed Matthew Perry’s official cause of death – acute effects of ketamine, although the exact method of intake was unknown. The manner of his death was ruled as an accident (drug and drowning related).

Matthew Perry was reportedly receiving ketamine infusion therapy prior to his death for depression and anxiety. However, his last known treatment was 1.5 weeks prior to his death, and could not have been a contributing factor.

The toxicology report stated that Perry had such high levels of ketamine in his blood that it ultimately led to his death from “cardiovascular overstimulation” and “respiratory depression“. It noted that Matthew Perry had blood ketamine levels of up to 3.54 mg/dL, when the levels for general anaesthesia in surgery was between 1.0 to 6.0 mg/dL.

At the high levels of ketamine found in his postmortem blood specimens, the main lethal effects would be from both cardiovascular overstimulation and respiratory depression.

The postmortem report also listed other contributing factors to Matthew Perry’s death – drowning, coronary artery disease, and the effects of buprenorphine (which is used to treat opioid addiction).

To be clear – the full autopsy report did not mention the COVID-19 vaccine as a contributing cause.

 Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #4 : Matthew Perry Had Long History Of Substance Abuse

While it has been said that no drugs were found at the scene of his sudden death, Matthew Perry has a long history of substance abuse.

He started drinking at the age of 14, and later became addicted to Vicodin, Oxycontin, and Xanax. It was his Vicodin addition that led to a jet-ski accident, and his first stint in rehab in 1997 – at the height of his Friends fame.

In 2022, he told The New York Times how he spent $9 million fighting his addiction:

I would fake back injuries. I would fake migraine headaches. I had eight doctors going at the same time. I would wake up and have to get 55 Vicodin that day, and figure out how to do it.

When you’re a drug addict, it’s all math. I go to this place, and I need to take three. And then I go to this place, and I’m going to take five because I’m going to be there longer.

It’s exhausting but you have to do it or you get very, very sick. I wasn’t doing it to feel high or to feel good.

I certainly wasn’t a partier; I just wanted to sit on my couch, take five Vicodin and watch a movie. That was heaven for me. It no longer is… I’ve probably spent $9 million or something trying to get sober.

According to Matthew Perry, he ended up in rehab at least 15 times, and had 14 stomach surgeries after suffering gastrointestinal perforations from his opioid abuse.

He also recounted in his 2022 memoir – Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing (US | UK | AU), that in 2018 – when he was 49 years old, and years before COVID-19 vaccines were invented – his colon burst from excessive opioid use, and he ended up in a coma for two weeks, and was hospitalised for five months.

The doctors told my family that I had a 2 percent chance to live. I was put on a thing called an ECMO machine, which does all the breathing for your heart and your lungs. And that’s called a Hail Mary. No one survives that.

Fact #5 : High Ketamine Levels Unlikely From Treatment

While Matthew Perry is known to have received ketamine infusions to treat his depression and anxiety, his last known treatment was 1.5 weeks prior to his death. It is, therefore, impossible for those ketamine treatments to contribute to his death, and certainly impossible for the high levels of ketamine in his blood to originate from that last known treatment, as the Medical Examiner pointed out:

Per the Medical Examiner Investigator’s report, his last known treatment was 1½ weeks prior to death, and the ketamine in his system at death could not be from that infusion therapy, since ketamine’s half-life is 3 to 4 hours, or less.

Recommended : Did Mike Tyson Just Die Suddenly In Tragic Accident?!

Fact #6 : Matthew Perry Was Possibly Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Matthew Perry did not publicly mention his COVID-19 vaccination status, so it is uncertain he was vaccinated against COVID-19. His family also has not mentioned his vaccination status.

The only “evidence” quoted by many people that Matthew Perry was vaccinated was his May 2021 tweet promoting a T-shirt with the words, “Could I BE Any More Vaccinated?

Other than that single tweet, we really have no evidence that Matthew Perry was actually vaccinated against COVID-19. People claiming that was fully-vaccinated and/or boosted certainly offered no evidence to back up their claims.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. Many people who died suddenly were found to be unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Matthew Perry died from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Matthew Perry was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean he died from the COVID-19 vaccine, as he would have received his doses more than two years ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months or years later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITTdevelop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false in every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Did Mike Tyson Just Die Suddenly In Tragic Accident?!

Did Mike Tyson just die suddenly in a tragic accident?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mike Tyson Just Died In Tragic Accident!

People are sharing YouTube and Facebook videos claiming to prove that Mike Tyson just died suddenly in a tragic accident, with titles like :

Truth : Mike Tyson Did Not Die At All!

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 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported that Mike Tyson has died, whether in a tragic accident, or suddenly at home.

Mike Tyson (born Michael Gerard Tyson on June 30, 1966) is considered as one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time. He is also “famous” for his controversial actions in and out of court, including infamously biting off a piece of Evander Holyfield’s right ear.

Since leaving the ring (and prison), Tyson rebuilt himself in entertainment, appearing in TV shows and movies like Ip Man 3, and even his own one-man show in Las Vegas.

If Mike Tyson really did die, the worldwide media would have reported it. Such momentous news would not have been left to a bunch of small-time celebrity death blogs / small YouTube and Facebook channels!

The truth is – no legitimate media outlet reported that Mike Tyson died suddenly from any cause, because it never happened

Fact #2 : Mike Tyson Is Still Alive + Well!

Mike Tyson did not die, and is still very much alive and well, as of Saturday, 9 December, 2023. That was when he posted a photo of himself on his official Instagram, X (formerly Twitter), and Facebook accounts.

In those social media posts, he posted about his endorsement of Seminole Gaming casinos in Florida, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

It was awesome to be a part of #ANewEraofSeminoleGaming with @officialhardrock. Craps, roulette, and sports betting are now live at Seminole Gaming casinos in Florida. “
@hardrockholly @hardrockbet

As you can tell – he’s very much still alive and well!

Fact #3 : Mike Tyson Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

However the December 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports.

This is yet another of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp, Telegram, and social media platforms, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Gal Gadot Just Hosted Hamas Attack Screening

First, I should point out that Gal Gadot has not returned to Israel. She is still in the United States. In fact, she just hosted a controversial short film screening in Los Angeles, on Wednesday night, 8 November 2023.

The short film, which is titled “Bearing Witness to the October 7 Massacre”, was a 43-minute compilation of “extremely graphic and violent” videos that documented “the atrocities committed by Hamas on October 7th, 2023”.

The private screening was held at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, with some 200 people attending, including an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) official, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, and Hollywood executives.

Despite a heavy police presence, two opposing groups of people ended up clashing outside the event. But Gal Gadot was reportedly not in attendance at that time.

To be clear – Gal Gadot has not returned to Israel for military duty, and is currently still in the United States.

Fact #2 : Gal Gadot Photos Are 18 Years Old!

I should also point out that these photos are very old. They were definitely not taken recently.

Some fact checkers have stated that the photos were taken when Gal Gadot was called up for military service at 18 years old. That’s actually incorrect. The photos of Gal Gadot serving in the Israeli military are about 18 years old.

According to her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, those photos were taken when Gal Gadot was 20 years old. That would mean they were taken sometime in 2005, not 2023.

Gal was 20 years old.

According to The Washington Post, Gal Gadot participated in the 2006 Lebanon War, which took place between Israel and Hezbollah from 12 July to 14 August 2006. That would confirm that the viral Gal Gadot military service photos were taken in 2005-2006, not in 2003 or 2023.

Fun fact : The viral photo of was taken by photographer Shaul Golan, as confirmed by Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot in 2017.

Fact #3 : Gal Gadot Only Served 2 Years In IDF

Like other Israeli citizens, Gal Gadot (born Gal Gadot-Varsano on 30 April 1985) was required to serve in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Military service is compulsory in Israel, with women required to serve for at least 24 months (men serve at least 32 months).

As part of her military service, Gal Gadot would have to learn basic military skills like how to use a gun, which would explain the photo of her posing with an Uzi submachine gun.

But she primarily served as a combat fitness instructor during her mandatory IDF service between 2005 and 2007, attaining the rank of Samal (Sergeant).

After her compulsory military service, she began studying at IDC Herzliya (now Reichman University), while working as a model and actress.

Fact #4 : IDF + Publicist Confirmed She Did Not Rejoin IDF

Just in case you still need convincing, her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, confirmed that Gal Gadot really, truly did not rejoin the IDF.

She has not joined the Army in 2023.

A spokesperson for the IDF also said that Gal Gadot has not rejoined the Israeli army, and that the photo is “outdated”.

Did Tyler Christopher Die From Vaccine Cardiac Event?!

Did Tyler Christopher die suddenly from a cardiac event caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Tyler Christopher Died From Vaccine Cardiac Event!

Right after news broke that Tyler Christopher died suddenly in his apartment, anti-vaccine proponents immediately claimed or suggested that the soap opera actor, and former husband of Eva Longoria, suffered a cardiac event caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

DiedSuddenly : We’re watching actors Die Suddenly left and right. Reminder that actors were given a strict vaccine mandate.

All of them were unable to show up on set without being fully vaccinated and providing proof that they were. Get ready to see a lot more of this.

William Makis MD : ACTORS Dying suddenly – Matthew Perry (age 54), Tyler Christopher (age 50) are the most recent losses: Vast majority were forced to take COVID-19 Vaccines to get or keep a job

Oct.31, 2023 – 50 year old Tyler Christopher, ex-husband of Eva Longoria, star of “General Hospital” and “Days of our Lives”, died suddenly from a cardiac event in his San Diego Apartment.

#Lets_go_brandon : ‘General Hospital’ Alum Tyler Christopher Dead at 50 After ‘Cardiac Event’… it’s funny how the killing by vaccine crowd start calling these things, “cardiac events“…. more young, healthy people are dying in the last two years with no apparent reason…

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Tyler Christopher Died From Vaccine Cardiac Event!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Tyler Christopher Died From Unspecified Cardiac Event

On Tuesday, 31 October  2023, Maurice Benard, who also appeared on General Hospital and Days Of Our Lives, announced on Instagram that Tyler Christopher died after suffering a cardiac event in his San Diego apartment:

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Tyler Christopher. Tyler passed away this morning following a cardiac event in his San Diego apartment.

Tyler was a truly talented individual that lit up the screen in every scene he performed and relished bringing joy to his loyal fans through his acting. Tyler was a sweet soul and wonderful friend to all of those who knew him.

Tyler was an advocate for better mental health and substance use treatment who openly spoke about his struggles with bipolar depression and alcohol. We are beyond devastated by the loss of our dear friend and pray for his children and his father.

Tyler Christopher’s rep, Chi Muni Lo, confirmed his death:

This news was incredibly shocking, and I am devastated by his loss. He was a very gifted actor, and more importantly, an amazing friend. My heart goes out to his friends and family who loved him so much.

At no point in time did any of his family members, friends, or representatives ever suggested that the cardiac event that he suffered had anything to do with COVID-19 vaccines.

Recommended : Did Bruce Willis Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #2 : Tyler Christopher Flatlined Three Times Earlier

Tyler Christopher does not only have depression, he has a long history of alcohol abuse – he actually had his first drink at just nine years old!

In fact, he spoke openly about his alcohol addiction, even revealing on Maurice Benard’s podcast how he almost died after his heart stopped three times in the past.

At some point, you cannot survive it. At some point, it will kill you – and it has. Three times, I have flatlined. And nobody knows that.

Three times I have flatlined, and they brought me back. Twice from [alcohol] poisoning, once from withdrawal.

It is unknown if Tyler Christopher flatlined again from alcohol poisoning or withdrawal, but this is certainly a possibility.

He had actually been arrested just six months earlier, after passing out drunk at the Burbank Airport in Los Angeles on 26 May 2023.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Facing Life Behind Bars For Child Rape?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Tyler Christopher Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that Tyler Christopher was compelled to vaccinate against COVID-19, there is no evidence he actually got vaccinated against COVID-19.

He did not appear to posted anything about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine on social media, and he had already left both General Hospital and Days of Our Lives due to his alcoholism and bipolar disorder. So there was simply no “requirement” for him to get vaccinated to “stay on the job”.

For all we know – Tyler Christopher may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. Many people who suffered sudden death or injuries were found to be unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Tyler Christopher is fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Matthew Perry Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Tyler Christopher was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean he suffered a cardiac event from the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, he would have received his doses more than two years ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months or years later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITTdevelop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Did Brooke Shields Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Was Brooke Shields rushed to the hospital, after collapsing suddenly from a COVID-19 vaccine seizure?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Brooke Shields Collapsed From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Brooke Shields collapsed suddenly and was rushed to the hospital, anti-vaccine proponents immediately claimed or suggested that the actress suffered a seizure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : Brooke Shields Rushed To Hospital After ‘Frothing At The Mouth’ welcome to the new normal. Oddly, this is pretty much only happening to vaccinated people. I wonder why?

Vaccine Deaths-SADS : Brooke Shields Rushed To Hospital After ‘Frothing At The Mouth’ #NewsBreak She has been having seizures after the jab. Hope you survive, so you can get more.

Sacred Habitats : Looks like Brooke Shields took the COVID vaccines and she’s paying for it right now.

People, y’all have got to wake up.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Brooke Shields Did Not Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Brooke Shields Had A Grand Mal Seizure

On Wednesday, 1 November 2023, Brooke Shields (born Brooke Christa Shields on 31 May 1965) revealed in a Glamour interview that she suffered a scary medical emergency several weeks earlier in September.

The actress recounted how she was waiting for a table at the L’Artusi restaurant in New York City, when she suffered a seizure.

Two women came up to me; I don’t know them. Everything starts to go black. Then my hands drop to my side and I go headfirst into the wall.

Brooke Shields explained that she suffered a “full blown grand mal seizure“, which is also known as a tonic-clonic seizure. She did not suffer any COVID-19 vaccine injury.

I start having a grand mal seizure… Frothing at the mouth, totally blue, trying to swallow my tongue.

Fact #2 : Bradley Cooper Accompanied Her To The Hospital

The next thing Brooke Shields remembered was being loaded onto an ambulance, and given oxygen, and realising that “Bradley fucking Cooper is sitting next to me, holding my hand“.

I thought to myself, This is what death must be like. You wake up and Bradley Cooper’s going, ‘I’m going to go to the hospital with you, Brooke,’ and he’s holding my hand.

I’m looking at Bradley Cooper’s hand in my hand, and I’m like, ‘This is odd and surreal.’

Bradley Cooper happened to be near the restaurant when Brooke Shields suffered her seizure, and accompanied her to the hospital after the restaurant failed to get hold of her husband, Chris Henchy.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Facing Life Behind Bars For Child Rape?!

Fact #3 : Brooke Shields Attributed Seizure To Water Toxicity

It is unknown if Brooke Shields suffers from epilepsy. But she explained that she had been drinking “so much water” that day, that the seizure was triggered by low sodium.

I flooded my system and I drowned myself. And if you don’t have enough sodium in your blood or urine or your body, you can have a seizure.

So as a 58-year-old woman, I’m not limiting my salt, OK? Stop trying to make me a crazy actress or a female that doesn’t know what the fucking they’re doing.

I was drinking too much water because I felt dehydrated because I was singing more than I’ve ever sung in my life and doing a show and a podcast. So they were just like, ‘Eat potato chips every day.’

Brooke Shields never once claimed that her seizure was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, she never mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine even once in her Glamour interview.

To be clear – hyponatremia (low sodium) can cause seizures. And there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines can cause tonic-clonic seizures.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Brooke Shields Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that Brooke Shields is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, I can find no record of her COVID-19 vaccination status. She did not appear to posted anything about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine on social media, so it is uncertain he was vaccinated against COVID-19.

For all we know – Brooke Shields may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. Many people who suffered sudden death or injuries were found to be unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless Brooke Shields reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that she is fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Matthew Perry Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Brooke Shields was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she suffered a seizure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. For one thing – there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause seizures.

More importantly – she would have received her doses more than two years ago! She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months or years later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITTdevelop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Dolly Parton Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Legendary singer Dolly Parton just died suddenly in the hospital?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-10-25 : Updated with new version and new details.
Originally posted @ 2023-05-05

 

Claim : Dolly Parton Just Died Suddenly In Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube and Facebook videos claiming that legendary singer Dolly Parton just died suddenly in a hospital of cancer or a stroke, with titles like :

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In A High Speed Car Crash?!

 

Truth : Dolly Parton Did NOT Die Suddenly In Hospital!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page / video views and advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported Her Death

These YouTube and Facebook videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Dolly Parton’s death.

Dolly Parton is such a big celebrity, her death would have been covered globally by the media and celebrity blogs.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, nor celebrity blog, has reported that Dolly Parton died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / Facebook videos?

Fact #2 : Dolly Parton Is Still Alive + Well!

Dolly Parton (born Dolly Rebecca Parton on May 13, 1946) is still very much alive and well, as of Friday, October 20, 2023, when she posted on Instagram about the release of her duet of the song, Wrecking Ball, with Miley Cyrus!

And just two days earlier, she posted an Instagram video promoting her book – Behind the Seams: My Life in Rhinestones (US | UK | AU).

All those posts came many days to months after those YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that she died suddenly from a stroke, or cancer, or some “dangerous disease”.

Recommended : Did Bruce Willis Just Die In A Hospital?!

Fact #3 : The Videos Provided No Evidence For Her Death

To generate ad money, the videos must engage you long enough, so they come up with some story that Dolly Parton was suffering from a “dangerous disease” or a “stroke”, and they drag out the video with details about Dolly Parton’s life.

In any case, after watching the videos, you will realise that none of them offered any evidence that Dolly Parton died from a stroke or any dangerous disease.

That may anger you, but it doesn’t matter. They got you to watch the video, generating income for them. And they know that most people will not realise that, and forward the fake news to their family and friends!

Fact #4 : They Videos Used Stock Photos

To make their videos more convincing, these fake video creators add faces of celebrities like Sylvester Stallone and Blake Shelton to the fake Dolly Parton funeral photos.

Take for example, this photo of Sylvester Stallone apparently leading the pallbearers carrying Dolly Parton’s coffin. Not only is Stallone smirking (odd for a funeral, isn’t it?), his head looks strange – it’s too large and you can see a second ear just right ear!

That’s because the fake news creator use the funeral photo from Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries that was taken on Sunday, January 21, 2018 by Getty photographer, Charles McQuillian, in her hometown of Limerick in Ireland.

The fake news creator had to make Sylvester Stallone’s head larger to cover up the face of the man in the real photo, but even so, was not able to cover up the man’s right ear completely.

The fake news creator also added a photo of Dolly Parton. In the real photo, you can see that the man was not holding anything.

Fact #5 : Dolly Parton Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Dolly Parton death hoax, ironically, also bring driven by another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project.

News of singer Dolly Parton’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the May 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the singer best known for hit songs like 9 to 5, I Will Always Love You or Jolene is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Dolly Parton 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 Dolly Parton’s unnamed rep confirming that she is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justin Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, and Tom Hanks.

She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She’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.

Truth : Clint Eastwood Did Not Die On The Way To Hospital!

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!

Recommended : Why Did Johnny Depp Faint + Cancel Budapest Concert?!

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.

Recommended : Did Simon Cowell Just Die In Tragic Car Crash?!

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.

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In High Speed Car Crash?!

And this photo does not show Clint Eastwood’s funeral procession. It was actually taken many years ago – on 5 October 2017, at the funeral procession for Irish actor Marc O’Shea in Northern Ireland.

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 October 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 Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justin Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, and Tom Hanks.

Right after news broke that Ray Stevenson died after being hospitalised, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Irish actor died from COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

RIP Ray Stevenson
A real shocker – a big man in every sense of the word, his career in full flow no indications of any illness! Taken ill while working – all in the era of covid vaccines

Ray Stevenson just died yesterday at the age of 58. Clean bill of health, but just dropped dead yesterday for no apparent reason, cause of death has not yet been disclosed which is normally the case of Vaccine related deaths.

One of my favorite actors, Ray Stevenson, has died. A gentle giant, he will be sorely missed.

Sudden illness? Again. The jab took another good person.

No Evidence Ray Stevenson Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Ray Stevenson Died While Filming In Italy

Ray Stevenson (born George Raymond Stevenson on 25 May 1964) was an Irish actor who starred in King Arthur, the Thor movies, as well as the HBO series, Rome, and the Star Wars series, Ahsoka.

According to Italian newspaper, La Repubblica, Ray Stevenson was filming Cassino in Ischia in Italy, when he suffered “a sudden illness that required hospitalisation” on Saturday afternoon, 20 May 2023.

His condition was “very serious” when he was hospitalised, and worsened the next day, and he died on Sunday morning, 21 May 2023 – four days before his 59th birthday.

Ray Stevenson was survived by his wife, Italian anthropologist Elisabetta Caraccia, and their three sons.

Fact #2 : Ray Stevenson’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

Ray Stevenson’s cause of death is currently unknown. Neither his representative, nor his family, have publicly announced his cause of death.

Ray Stevenson could have died suddenly from any number of reasons – a heart attack or a stroke, for example, which could hypothetically explain his hospitalisation before his death.

Until and unless his representative, family, or the Italian authorities, publicly reveal his cause of death, anyone who tells you that Ray Stevenson died from this or that cause is just likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Ray Stevenson May Have Died Of Heart Attack

It has been said that the Italian media reported that his death was caused by a heart attack precipitated by an anaphylactic shock, and severe pneumonia.

He was on set Saturday afternoon when he was rushed to the hospital for a heart attack linked to a serious one anaphylactic shock: He was immediately transported to the recovery room, but doctors discovered that his lungs were seriously compromised. So much so that a post announcing his death had already appeared on the net that day.

According to the Italian newspapers Il Corriere della Sera and Il Mattino, the Northern Irish actor Ray Stevenson died of a heart attack caused by a severe anaphylactic shock.

While it is certainly plausible Ray Stevenson died from a heart attack, it is impossible to find any corroboration of these claims.

Of course, if Ray Stevenson died from a heart attack, it would certainly rule out the claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine SADS, or a vaccine side effect. COVID-19 vaccines do not cause heart attacks.

mRNA vaccines can cause anaphylaxis in rare cases, but within minutes of administration. Unless Ray Stevenson received an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine mere minutes before his “medical emergency”, it is unlikely COVID-19 vaccines had anything to do with his death.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Ray Stevenson Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Ray Stevenson did not publicly mention his COVID-19 vaccination status, so it is currently unknown if he was vaccinated against COVID-19. His family has also not mentioned his vaccination status.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom. Many people who died suddenly were found to be unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Ray Stevenson died from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Ray Stevenson was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean he died from the COVID-19 vaccine, as he would have received his doses many months ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITTdevelop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false in every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Was Tom Hanks Just Accused Of Child Sex Crimes?!

Did Tom Hanks just disable comments on his Instagram account, after being accused of child sex crimes?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Tom Hanks Was Just Accused Of Child Sex Crimes!

People are sharing an article by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), suggesting or claiming that Tom Hanks just disabled comments on his Instagram account, after being accused of child sex crimes?!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is pretty long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Tom Hanks’ Instagram Flooded With People Demanding His Arrest For ‘Child Sex Crimes’

Hollywood A-lister Tom Hanks has disabled comments on his popular Instagram page after tens of thousands of people called him out for alleged child sex crimes and demanded an urgent investigation into his crimes against children.

Recommended : Did Tom Hanks Die From COVID-19?!

 

Truth : Tom Hanks Was Not Just Accused Of Child Sex Crimes!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created about Tom Hanks, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Tom Hanks Appear To Disable Instagram Comments In 2020

There is no evidence that Tom Hanks only recently disabled comments on his Instagram account, due to a deluge of comments about his “child sex crimes”.

After scouring through past snapshots of his Instagram account, it appears that Tom Hanks disabled comments after posting on March 13, 2020 that he and his wife, Rita Wilson, were doing well after getting COVID-19.

According to snapshots from archive.today, Tom Hank appears to have disabled comments on his Instagram post sometime between 2 August 2020 and 13 September 2020.

In other words – Tom Hanks appears to have disabled comments on his Instagram account more than 3 years ago!

Fact #2 : Sarah Ruth Ashcraft Claims Were From 2018

The article appears to claim that these claims against Tom Hanks came after Sarah Ruth Ashcraft announced that her father sold her to Tom Hanks for sex when she was 13 years old.

The trouble is – Sarah Ruth Ashcraft made that claim back in July 2018 – more than 5 years ago. So that accusation is not new.

Recommended : Did Japan Order Investigation Of COVID-19 Vaccine Deaths?!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Tom Hanks Committed Child Sex Crimes

Despite Sarah Ruth Ashcraft publicly accusing Tom Hanks of sexually abusing her while she was under “mind control” over 5 years ago, she did not appear to file any police report, or provide any evidence to back up her claims.

This is me at 13, the age I was when @tomhanks purchased me from my father for sex as a dissociated #mindcontrol doll. I wonder how much he paid? I wonder how much $$$ my father made for breaking my mind & selling my child body throughout my life. Will I ever get to know?

So far, Sarah Ruth Ashcraft is the only person who ever accused Tom Hanks of sexual abuse.

Fact #4 : Sarah Ruth Ashcraft Also Accused Many People Of Sex Crimes

Interestingly, Sarah Ruth Ashcraft also accused other people of sexually abusing her as a child:

As a CHILD while under #MindControl I was sexually abused by politicians, mostly Dems [Democrats], including HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton], during occult rituals, masonic meetings, & private interactions in my own home in MI near #JohnConyers’ district. Keep looking in his direction you will find MANY perpetrators.

I’ve named some (not all) of the people who abused me as a CHILD, including my parents/family, all my ex-partners, most “friends”, HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton], Tom Hanks, a Catholic Cardinal, Jonathan Freeman (voice of Jafar in Aladdin), The Roeper School, & Fragomen. There are MANY others. #ItEndsNow

To date, Sarah Ruth Ashcraft has never provided any evidence of actual interactions with those people she named. And she has never provided any evidence she was sexually abused by them.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is A Fake News Website

The People’s Voice is the new name / brand for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I personally fact checked earlier:

Did Morgan Freeman Just Die Suddenly From Cancer?!

Did legendary actor Morgan Freeman just die suddenly in the hospital from cancer?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-10-03 : Added updated information.

Truth : Morgan Freeman Did NOT Die Suddenly From Cancer!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page / video views and advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube and Facebook videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Morgan Freeman’s death.

Morgan Freeman is such a Hollywood legend, his death would have been covered globally by the media and celebrity blogs.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, nor celebrity blog, has reported that Morgan Freeman died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / Facebook videos?

Fact #2 : Morgan Freeman Is Still Alive + Well!

Morgan Freeman (born June 1, 1937) is still very much alive and well, as of September 29, 2023, when he last posted on Instagram and Twitter about the documentary Life on Our Planet which he narrated!

On 2 August 2023, he even visited the Pentagon, to talk with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin, on his upcoming documentary about an all-Black tank unit that fought in Europe during World War II – the 761st Tank Battalion.

All those posts came many days to weeks after those YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that he died suddenly from cancer, or some other cause of death.

Recommended : Did Bruce Willis Just Die In A Hospital?!

Fact #3 : The Videos Provided No Evidence For His Death

To generate ad money, the videos must engage you long enough, so they come up with some story that Morgan Freeman was suffering from a “dangerous disease” or a “stroke” or “cancer”, and they drag out the video with details about Morgan Freeman’s life.

In any case, after watching the videos, you will realise that none of them offered any evidence that Morgan Freeman died from cancer or any disease.

That may anger you, but it doesn’t matter. They got you to watch the video, and generate income for them. And they know that most people will not realise that, and forward the fake news to their family and friends!

Fact #4 : They Edited Real Photos

To make their videos more convincing, these fake video creators add faces of celebrities like Chris Tucker and Will Smith to the fake Morgan Freeman funeral photos.

Take for example, this photo of Chris Tucker and Will Smith apparently carrying Morgan Freeman’s coffin. Not only do their heads look ridiculously large, their faces look much sharper and are more vibrant in colour than the rest of the photo.

That’s because the fake news creator use the funeral photo of Fairgrounds Holdings CEO Michael Montshiwa, who was murdered in Botswana in 2016. The fake news creator had to make the heads of Chris Tucker and Will Smith larger to cover up the faces of the real men in the real photo.

The fake news creator also added a framed photo of Morgan Freeman. In the real photo, you can see that the coffin does not have a framed photo hanging from the front.

Recommended : Did Michael J. Fox Die Suddenly From COVID-19?!

I should give special mention to this “terrifically photoshopped” photo, which shows Morgan Freeman smiling in his casket!

The fake news creator overlaid a photo of Morgan Freeman’s over the photo of the high chief of Ngardmau Palau, Beouch Sakaziro. The photo was taken by his children, and posted on Facebook and Wikipedia in 2011.

Fact #5 : Morgan Freeman Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Morgan Freeman death hoax, ironically, is 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 Morgan Freeman’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the October 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 his roles in Invictus, Bruce Almighty or Driving Miss Daisy is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Morgan Freeman 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 Morgan Freeman’s unnamed reps confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Celine Dion, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justin Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, and Tom Hanks.

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.

Truth : Arnold Schwarzenegger Did Not Die From Heart Attack!

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 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube and TikTok videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported his death or heart attack!

Arnold Schwarzenegger is not only a Hollywood legend, he served as the 38th governor of California for 8 years! Everything he does, no matter how small, is covered in detail by the media and celebrity blogs.

When “the Governator” got fed up and fixed a neighbourhood pothole with his team, it even became international news! So if he actually suffered a heart attack, it would have been covered by legitimate news media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet or even a celebrity blog reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger suffered a heart attack recently, much less died in a hospital. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Still Alive + Well!

Arnold Schwarzenegger (born Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger on 30 March, 1968) is very much still alive, as of Monday, 25 September 2023!

That was when he shared two posts on X (formerly known as Twitter), with comments like “Bryan, we are all rooting for you“, and “Fantastic work!“.

Just four days ago, Arnold even posted a video getting some exercise after his elbow surgery!

These and many other public posts appeared days and weeks after people started claiming that Arnold Schwarzenegger died from a heart attack!

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In High Speed Car Crash?!

Fact #3 : Viral Photo Was From 2020 Heart Surgery

The viral photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger clutching a red heart-shaped pillow while unconscious on a hospital bed is real, but it was taken from his 2020 heart surgery.

On April 16, 1997, Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent elective heart surgery to replace a defective, congenital aortic heart valve. He chose to get a tissue valve, as he felt that a mechanical valve might limit his capacity to exercise.

On March 30, 2018, Arnold Schwarzenegger had his pulmonary valve replaced at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

On Friday, 23 October 2023, Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent a third heart valve procedure at the Cleveland Clinic to replace his aortic valve. That was when the viral photo was taken.

That operation was successful of course, because Arnold is not only alive today, he posted a photo of himself with a thumbs-up on social media!

Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic, I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery.

I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues.  Thank you to every doc and nurse on my team.

Did Henry Cavill Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle?!

Did Henry Cavill go to his nephew’s school to prove that Superman is really his uncle?!

Take a look at the viral story + video, and find out what the FACTS really are!

Updated @ 2023-09-10 : Updated with the latest details, and new video.

Did Henry Cavill Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle?

This cute story of Henry Cavill going to school to help his nephew, Thomas, prove that Superman is his uncle, keeps going viral.

Whether they are posted on Facebook, or in “viral websites”, the story generally goes along these lines, with a picture of Henry Cavill walking his nephew to school :

The day Uncle Cavill had to prove his nephew was not a liar.

Little Thomas, aged only 7, went to school dressed as Superman and the teacher asked why he was dressed like this.

“Because Superman is my uncle,” he replied.

The teacher then explained that Superman didn’t exist, but Thomas insisted, repeating numerous times that he existed, and that he was his uncle. And the kid ended up at the office…

An officer was asked to see him, to warn the child not to live in a fantasy world.

As the doubt remained, she called her brother-in-law, asking him to go to school to “save” her nephew, who was radiant for all his little friends to see that he was really Superman’s nephew!

The news was confirmed in the last few hours by Cavill himself, reiterating that he had saved his nephew from a bad punishment, given his reputation for “telling lies”.

Henry Cavill Did Not Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle!

As endearing as this story is, it was really fabricated from an old but true story from 2011. Many websites keep resurrecting this story to “go viral” and make money. Here are the facts…

Fact #1 : Henry Cavill Talked About Incident In 2013 + 2018

Henry Cavill actually recounted this incident back in June 2013 in an interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. He later told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest this same story on their show in July 2018.

So all those viral and celebrity websites that claimed that Henry Cavill confirmed this “in the last few hours” lied to you. This is a really old story.

Recommended : Did These Famous People Mock God And Die?!

Fact #2 : Superman Uncle Incident Happened In 2011

This incident involving his nephew, Thomas, actually happened in 2011 when Henry first learned that he would be playing Superman in Zack Snyder’s film.

Henry Cavill only recounted it in 2013, during his interview with Jay Leno. This was what he said :

“My nephew Thomas was so super excited… he ran to school. “

“Now keep in mind Thomas has got a great reputation for telling stories and just making up stuff to the teacher.”

He says, “Well, because my uncle is Superman,” and she’s like, “Oh okay, and she pulls him aside. He got in trouble. [She was like] “this is sad.”

Fact #3 : Henry Cavill Did NOT Go To His Nephew’s School

Thomas’ mother – Henry’s sister-in-law – then explained to the teacher that the boy’s uncle “actually kind of is” Superman.

She did not ask Henry to “rescue” Thomas, so he did not actually go to his nephew’s school to prove that Superman is really his uncle.

Fact #4 : They Were NOT Walking To His Nephew’s School

The (fake news) creators misappropriated a photo to make it look as if Henry Cavill was walking his nephew to school to prove that his uncle really is Superman.

The truth is this was one of the photos taken of Henry, who was walking in London with his brother Niki and his family on 7 September 2013. They were NOT going to school to rescue Thomas, that’s for sure!

Recommended : Did Beyonce Flash Her Fans At Paris Concert?!

Fact #5 : Thomas Was Not 7 Years Old When It Happened

Henry Cavill did not mention how old Thomas was when this “Superman is my uncle” incident happened. But in a May 2021 interview with Viva Magazine, he said,

I have two nephews, aged 6 and 4. The older is known for telling wild tales in school and telling lies invented all the time. During one of the classes, the teacher asked pupils to talk about their family members, and what they do professionally. Then, the boy said: “My uncle is Superman.”

So we know that Thomas was 6 years old in 2013, and not 7 years old in 2021 as many viral websites and memes are claiming.

We also know that the incident happened sometime between 2011 and 2013. So Thomas was likely between 4 and 6 years old when it happened.

Little Thomas would be a strapping 16 year-old teenager in 2023. Even if Uncle Cavill offered to go to his school dressed as Superman, you can be sure he would definitely refuse the offer!

Fact #2 : Johnny Depp Was Seen One Hour Before Cancellation

Approximately an hour before The Hollywood Vampires cancelled its concert in Budapest, Johnny Depp was seen walking in public, with a drink in his hand.

Obviously, Johnny Depp did not collapse and faint in his hotel after being “overexcited” from partying last night!

He may have been found unconscious in his room later – this rumour has not yet been confirmed. But if he fainted, it would have been because of some other cause – drinking, substance abuse, etc – after he returned to his hotel; and not because of last night’s excesses.

Ironically, Music Mundial posted the same photos showing Johnny Depp walking with a drink in his hand, essentially refuting its own claim!

Fact #3 : No Evidence For Alice Cooper Quote

There is no evidence that Alice Cooper ever said that Johnny Depp was “overexcited” from a very agitated night of partying. I can find no reference to any such quote by Alice Cooper, but I found a single reference by a blog site euro ES Euro:

“What we heard was that he was overexcited and he couldn’t even leave the hotel. We also heard that they had called a doctor to see if something more serious had happened,” the Blikk tabloid quoted “a person with information about the case” as saying yesterday afternoon.

‘Everything was set, the stage was set. It didn’t even occur to us that there might be a problem, especially since the band members had also done a scheduled sound adjustment that afternoon.and. Nobody even thought about the fact that Johnny Depp would not participate, a colleague also installed his microphone, ”a source close to the band explained to the Hungarian medium.

However, that exact quote was never attributed to Alice Cooper. In fact, if Alice Cooper did indeed speak out about Johnny Depp, it would be odd for him to refer to his own band as “they”. He would have said, “we”.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Music Mundial Fake News

Needless to say – Music Mundial offered NO EVIDENCE to back up its claim that Johnny Depp was found unconscious in his hotel because he was “overexcited” from a night of partying.

This appears to be nothing more than yet another example of fake news posted by Music Mundial. Here are examples of Music Mundial fake news that I looked into recently:

Everything Music Mundial posts should be considered as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Jamie Foxx Proves He’s NOT Blind Or Paralysed!

Jamie Foxx has publicly proven that he is not blind or partially paralysed as rumoured!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Foxx Blind + Paralysed By COVID Vaccine Blood Clot!

Back in May 2023, people were sharing articles about Jamie Foxx being blind and partially paralysed after suffering a blood clot in his brain (stroke) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are selected quotes and comments, which are all based on claims made by gossip columnist, A. J. Benza:

Journalist A.J Benza is now claiming that the actor’s health has worsened due to a “blood clot in his brain.” The journalist added that the clot has led to Jamie being “partially blind and paralyzed.”

The journalist has said that a well-placed source tells him that the reason behind Foxx’s mysterious illness was a COVID vaccine. He also adds that the actor was pressured into taking the vaccine. “Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” Benza claimed.

He also made a shocking revelation when he added, “The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind.”

Charlie Kirk : According to reports, Jamie Foxx is now “paralyzed and blind” from a blood clot in his brain after receiving the COVID-19 “vaccine.”

Those of us who spoke against the mRNA shot were attacked in every imaginable way. I am infuriated a decent person like Jamie Foxx fell victim to Big Pharma because a movie set is still dumb enough to mandate their cash cow clot shot.

Candace Owens : Their silence seems as though there is some veracity to this claim. We’re all holding our breath to see whether or not Jamie Foxx speaks out.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Jamie Foxx Was Not Blind Or Paralysed!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Jamie Foxx Did Not Reveal His Medical Emergency

Born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967, Jamie Foxx was in Atlanta, Georgia filming his Netflix movie, Back in Action, when he suffered a “medical emergency” on April 11, 2023.

The medical emergency apparently occurred off the set, and he was taken to a hospital. His daughter, 29 year-old actress Corinne Foxx, was the one who announced his condition to the world, but she refused to divulge what that medical emergency was.

On Sunday, 23 July 2023, Jamie Foxx spoke publicly in an Instagram video for the first time about his medical emergency, but even then he did not reveal what he suffered from.

The truth is – we, the public, do NOT know what kind of “medical emergency” Jamie Foxx suffered from on April 11, 2023.

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals what that “medical emergency” was, anyone who claims that it was “this” or “that” is likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Had Blood Clot In Brain

Initially, people speculated that Jamie Foxx suffered a ruptured aneurysm like Tom Sizemore, but there was no evidence of that at all.

A. J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx actually suffered from “a blood clot in his brain”, but provided no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. Could that be a doctor or nurse violating the HIPAA law, or a hospital cleaner with no medical knowledge? Who knows?

Interestingly, one of Jamie Foxx’s close friends earlier told Media Take Out that Foxx suffered a brain bleed (haemorrhage) that was discovered when he sought medical attention for headaches. His friend said that he had been suffering from severe headaches frequently.

A brain haemorrhage causes a haemorrhagic stroke, while a blood clot causes an ischaemic stroke. They are both “strokes”, but with completely different treatments. So which is it?

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals his medical condition, it is unknown if he suffered from a ruptured aneurysm, a haemorrhagic stroke, or an ischaemic stroke.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Was Blind / Paralysed

A. J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx is now blind and partially paralysed, but offered no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. His claims run contrary to previous updates by Jamie Foxx’s daughter and friends.

Back in April 2023, one of his close friends disclosed that the doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

On 12 May 2023, his daughter – Corinne Foxx, posted an update criticising rumours that Jamie Foxx’s condition had worsened:

Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.

Then, on May 15, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne Foxx will host a music game show called We Are Family on its network in 2024. Corinne Foxx confirmed it on her Instagram the same day:

WE ARE FAMILY coming 2024!🎶👨‍👧🪩 The Foxx Family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show! 🦊📺

All that suggest that Jamie Foxx is not blind or partially paralysed. While he can certainly play pickleball and host a show while partially paralysed, it would be impossible for him to do both while blind!

I should also point out that Corinne Foxx and Jamie Foxx’s good friend, Dave Brown, were both seen visiting a physical rehabilitation centre in Chicago, which treats patients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. This suggests that Jamie Foxx is undergoing physical therapy for some kind of impairment.

Fact #4 : Jamie Foxx Proved He Was Not Blind Or Paralysed

While Jamie Foxx did not publicly come out and refute A. J. Benza’s claims in May 2023, his representative labelled the claims by A. J. Benza as “untrue” and “completely inaccurate“.

Then on July 21, 2023, Jamie Foxx posted a photo of himself looking dapper in a black suit on top of a golden BetMGM race car. That photo was reportedly taken during the shooting of a new BetMGM commercial on Wednesday, 19 June 2023, in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort and Casino.

This was the first time Jamie Foxx has gone back in front of the cameras since his health scare. But prior to this, Jamie Foxx was seen playing pickle ball in Chicago, and at a golf driving range near Chicago, and even taking a cruise down the Chicago River on a boat!

Then on Sunday, July 23, 2023, Jamie Foxx posted an Instagram video in which he publicly spoke about his hospitalisation for the first time.

He shared that he appreciated how his family kept his condition “airtight”, before demonstrating that his eyes were “working just fine”, and saying that he was “not paralysed”. He also said that people would now be seeing him in public more often.

I just want to say I love everybody and I love all the love that I got.

If you see me out from now on and every once in a while I just burst into tears, it’s just because it’s been tough, man. I was sick, man. But now I got my legs under me, so you’re gonna see me out.

Fact #5 : This Is Just Celebrity Fake News

Did These Famous People Mock God And Die?!

Did these eight famous people mock God, and consequently died early?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Did These Famous People Mock God And Die?!

This story has not only been posted on many websites, it has been repeatedly shared on social media and even WhatsApp and Telegram.

The stories have a variety of names – “Famous People Who Mocked God And Died Untimely“, “Untimely Deaths Of Famous People Who Mocked God“, or just “8 in 8‘, whatever that meant!

The story is very long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS? I SURE DIDN’T TILL NOW

Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a personal reflection about this…… Very interesting, read until the end……

It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):

 

Truth : These Famous People Did NOT Mock God And Die!

This is yet another example of religious FAKE NEWS created to warn people that the Christian God is vengeful and will kill those who mock him.

The good news is – nothing in the viral story is true, and here is a TLDR summary of the reasons why…

John Lennon

  • The interview was conducted by the London Evening Standard, not a US magazine as claimed.
  • He was killed 14 years after making that statement, not immediately as claimed.
  • He was shot 4 times, not 6 times as claimed.

Tancredo Neves

  • Tancredo Neves never made such a claim.
  • He was also a religious Catholic, and very unlikely to ever mock God.
  • To become President, he only needed a majority vote from 686 members of the Electoral College, not 500,000 votes.
  • He did not get sick and die just one day before becoming President.

Cazuza

  • Cazuza died from AIDS-related complications, not lung cancer.
  • There is no evidence he ever mocked God.
  • He did not smoke during his Canecão concert in 1998.

The Man Who Built The Titanic

  • None of the men associated with the financing, design or construction of the Titanic ever claimed that “Not even God can sink it”.
  • The comment was most likely made by a deck hand to Sylvia Caldwell, a second class passenger on the Titanic.

Marilyn Monroe

  • Marilyn Monroe never met or spoke to Billy Graham in her entire life.
  • As a practising Jew, it would have been correct for her to say that she did not need Jesus.
  • She never told anyone, preacher or not, that “I don’t need your Jesus”.

Bon Scott

  • The song “Highway To Hell” did not mock God, or any religion.
  • Marilyn MansonLazlo BaneMaroon 5Bruce Springsteen and even Billy Joel covered the song, but did not die early deaths.
  • Millions of people sang the same song, but did not die early deaths.

2005 Campinas Car Accident

This is a truly preposterous story that does not appear to be true because…

  • Why would a mother let her daughter get into a car of obviously drunk teens?
  • Why would teens have a crate of eggs in the trunk of their car?
  • If the trunk survived the accident, it would have allowed for easy identification of the car.

Christine Hewitt

  • There is no evidence she ever criticised the Bible.
  • She was shot dead, not burned to death as claimed.
  • Her body was burned to destroy evidence and/or to cover up the act of murder.
  • Her husband and his brother were charged with her murder.

John Lennon Mocked Religion, Not God

The John Lennon quote was somewhat inaccurate. He never mocked God, he only mocked Christianity, saying:

Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue with that; I’m right and I will be proved right.

We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first — rock and roll or Christianity.

Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.

More importantly, that interview was NOT conducted by a US magazine, but with Maureen Cleave from the London Evening Standard.

When it was first published in the London Evening Standard in March 1966, there was no outcry. It was only when Datebook, a US teen magazine printed the same quote five months later, that protests broke out in the United States.

Even so, it took fourteen years after that statement for a born-again Christian called Mark David Chapman to kill John Lennon.

But he didn’t shoot Lennon six times (as claimed). He shot 5 times at John Lennon, hitting him 4 times.

Was Mark David Chapman God’s avenging hand? If so, then it’s obvious that God believes that revenge is a dish best served cold.

 

Tancredo Neves Did Not Mock God

There is no evidence that Tancredo Neves ever made such a claim. It would have been out-of-character to mock God, since he was a religious Catholic by all accounts.

Catholic priest and historian, José Oscar Beozzo, said of him – “Tancredo was a profoundly religious man” (Source : Evangelical Christianity and Democracy in Latin America, Page 176).

The Archbishop of São Paulo at that time, Cardinal Paulo Evaristo Arns, said,

He was loved by the people and is being very much missed. He was also a personal friend and a good Catholic. I was at his side when he died.

Tancredo Neves also did not need 500,000 votes from his party, because the Electoral College that elected him as President only had 686 members.

Tancredo won 480 (70%) of the Electoral College votes. 480 votes, ladies and gentlemen, not 500,000 votes.

Finally, Tancredo Neves did not die a day before being made President. He fell sick much earlier, complaining of abdominal pains, and was admitted to the hospital a day before his inauguration on March 15, 1985.

He died on April 21, 1985 after undergoing 7 surgeries in 38 days (Source : The Accidental President of Brazil: A Memoir, Page 160).

 

Cazuza Did Not Mock God

Cazuza, whose real name is Agenor Miranda Araújo Neto, did indeed die at the age of 32. However, he died from AIDS-related complications, not lung cancer as the hoax claims.

There was also no evidence Cazuza ever mocked God, specifically “while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said ‘God, that’s for you.’ during a show in Canecio [sic] (Rio de Janeiro)”.

Despite extensive searches, I have not come across a direct testimony by a fan who attended the concert, that Cazuza actually mocked God in that manner, much less actual published articles on that act.

In fact, I located the only video I have ever seen of a full concert at the Canecão in 1998 on YouTube. In that video, Cazuza never smoked a cigarette during the entire concert, much less mocked God with cigarette smoke.

You have to wonder how the writer of this hoax knew about this, when it is virtually impossible to prove this act ever took place in this age of Google and YouTube.

 

The Men Who Built Titanic Did Not Mock God

The writer of this hoax cannot even name “the man who built the Titanic“, and claimed that “Not even God can sink it“. That’s because there is no such person.

First of all, the Titanic was not built or even paid for by any individual. It was built by Harland and Wolff, a shipbuilding company from Belfast, Ireland for the White Star Line, a shipping company.

Neither J. P. Morgan (whose holding company financed its construction), nor Joseph Bruce Ismay (the chairman of White Star Line) ever made such a claim to a reporter. The same is true for Thomas Andrews, the naval architect who designed the Titanic.

Which of these 3 men built the RMS Titanic? L to R : J. Bruce Ismay, J. P. Morgan, Thomas Andrews

The claim that “Not even God can sink it” was purportedly made by a deck hand to Sylvia Caldwell, a second class passenger on the Titanic :

After we came aboard the Titanic we were watching deck hands carrying up baggage I said to one “Is this ship really unsinkable?”

He answered “Yes, lady, God himself could not sink this ship.”

White Star Line, and its parent company, International Mercantile Marine, did make claims that the Titanic was practically unsinkable (due to its watertight compartments), but at no point did any of their representatives claim that “Not even God can sink it“.

Marilyn Monroe Did Not Mock God

The claim that Marilyn Monroe was visited by Billy Graham just a week before she was found dead is categorically untrue.

As one of the most famous celebrities during her time, she was closely followed by fans and the press. So we know with certainty that Marilyn Monroe never met Billy Graham in her entire life.

Billy Graham also did not preach to Marilyn Monroe, or even had a conversation with her… ever.

According to a spokesperson for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, “there was no discussion between Marilyn Monroe and Billy Graham”. Therefore, we can safely say that this claim is utter nonsense.

Interestingly, Marilyn Monroe was a Christian who converted to Judaism in 1956, 6 years before she tragically died.

But whether she was a Christian or a Jew, she prayed to the same God, and it appeared that she took her religion rather seriously. At least, according to her rabbi, Robert Goldburg :

“She indicated that she was impressed with the rationalism of Judaism, its ethical and prophetic ideals and its concept of close family life,” wrote the Reform rabbi.

“Marilyn was not an intellectual person but she was sincere in her desire to learn. It was also clear that her ability to concentrate over a long period of time was limited.

However I did feel that she understood and accepted the basic principles of Judaism.”

Even after her divorce from her Jewish husband, Arthur Miller, Marilyn told Goldburg that she “remained committed to Judaism”.

Even if Marilyn Monroe did say that she did not need Jesus, that would not be an insult, but the correct belief of a practising Jew.

God would certainly not kill her for not accepting a prophet that was not part of her faith. Or would he?

 

Bon Scott Did Not Mock God

AC/DC released their hit single “Highway To Hell” in 1979, and yes, Bon Scott died six months later at the back of his friend’s car.

It was said that Bon Scott choked on his own vomit, after passing out from a night of heavy drinking. That is certainly a possibility when someone’s totally wasted.

However, his official cause of death was “acute alcohol poisoning“.

More importantly though, Highway To Hell became one of the most famous songs in the world. Millions of their fans sang the same song, and many more still do today.

Many other singers also covered the song, including Marilyn Manson, Lazlo Bane, Maroon 5, Bruce Springsteen and even Billy Joel. Yet, they did not die from the wrath of God, did they?

And why should God be angry at Bon Scott, or anyone singing about going down the “Highway to Hell”? The song in no way mocked God or any religion.

 

2005 Campinas Car Accident Likely Did Not Happen

The purported Campinas car accident in 2005 cannot be corroborated in any way. But the story itself is preposterous, for several reasons.

  1. Which mother in the world would let her daughter sit in the car of obviously drunk teens?
  2. Why would there be a crate of eggs in the trunk of a car driven by drunk teenagers?
  3. In any accident, the trunk is the most likely part of the car to survive a head-on collision.
  4. If the trunk survived intact (as the story claims), then the car would have been easy to recognise.

Common sense would dictate that this is nothing more than a rather silly urban legend designed to drive the fear of God into “foolish” teens.

 

Christine Hewitt Did Not Mock God

First of all, there is no evidence Christine Hewitt called the Bible “the worst book ever written”. Even if she said that, that would be a criticism of a book, not mocking God.

Christine Hewitt was found burnt beyond recognition in her Toyota Hiace minivan. However, that was only done to cover up the act of murder, and/or to destroy evidence.

She did not spontaneously combust or die as a result of the fire, as the hoax insinuates.

She was actually shot dead and her body placed in her minivan, which was then driven to a lonely rural road before being set on fire.

Her husband, David Lloyd Gordon, and his brother, Wordsworth Gordon, were ultimately charged with her murder.

Obviously, they are not the hands of God… unless God condones murder?

Truth : Mike Batayeh Did Not Die From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Mike Batayeh Died From Suicide!

Actor and comedian Mike Batayeh (born Michael Batayeh on 27 December 1970) played Dennis Markowski – the manager of Gustavo Fring’s Lavandería Brillante industrial laundromat in three episodes of Breaking Bad, from 2011-2012.

According to his sister, Diane, Mike Batayeh died suddenly in his sleep from a heart attack, at his Michigan home on June 1, 2023. He was survived by five sisters, and many nephews and nieces.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that my sisters and I announce the passing of our dear brother @Mike Batayeh on Thursday June 1 2023. He will be greatly missed by those who loved him and his great ability to bring laughter and joy to so many. Funeral arrangements will be posted at a later date. #mikebatayeh #mikebatayehbreakingbad

However, the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner’s Office revealed on June 13, that Mike Batayeh’s official cause of death was “asphyxia hanging“. In other words, Mike Batayeh committed suicide.

Fact #2 : Law Enforcement Was Called To His Apartment

According to a police report, the Pittsfield Township Police Department was called to Mike Batayeh’s third-floor, one-bedroom apartment for an “unattended death” and “possible suicide”.

A male relative who filed the report said that he was aware of Mike Batayeh’s “turbulent mental health”, and Batayeh had spent a weekend with him late last month to “distract himself”. The relative also said that Mike Batayeh attempted suicide about a decade ago.

The police report also noted that another witness, identified as his therapist, claimed that Mike Batayeh had been his client “off and on for the past seven years”, and the witness had become concerned when Batayeh missed a scheduled appointment on the morning he died.

Fact #3 : Mike Batayeh Tweeted About Suicide Earlier

Mike Batayeh posted several times about suicide on Twitter:

  • April 9, 2015 : Let’s face it…..Jesus was suicidal and as a roman Catholic I was taught suicide is a SIN….Double stan[d]ard because he was the bosses son.
  • April 17, 2016 : You ever been so bored you contemplate suicide just because it’s something to do?
  • Nov. 20, 2019 : Holiday season is here. It’s a time of reflection and rebirth. It’s also a time of depression and suicide. It’s all perspective. #tistheseason

Fact #4 : Mike Batayeh Was Fully Vaccinated In May 2021

Mike Batayeh was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, after receiving his first Moderna vaccine dose on April 9, 2021, and his second dose on May 7, 2021.
