Did Mel Gibson say Hollywood Pedos are using Diddy as cover?!

Did Mel Gibson say that Hollywood pedos are using Sean “Diddy” Combs to cover up their crimes?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mel Gibson Says Hollywood Pedos Are Using Diddy As Cover!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that Mel Gibson said that Hollywood pedos are using Sean “Diddy” Combs to cover up their crimes!

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

Mel Gibson: Hollywood Pedos Using Diddy To Cover-Up ‘Horrific’ Crimes of Satanic Cabal

Sean “Diddy” Combs is just the tip of an enormous, rotten iceberg of pedophiles and sex offenders operating in the Hollywood entertainment system, according to Mel Gibson who warns that despite the lurid revelations about Diddy and his crew, we have not seen anything yet.

Truth : Mel Gibson Never Said Hollywood Pedos Are Using Diddy As Cover!

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

Fact #1 : Mel Gibson Never Said Hollywood Pedos Are Using Diddy As Cover

Let me start by pointing out that Mel Gibson never said that Hollywood pedos are using Sean “Diddy” Combs to cover up the “horrific” crimes of a Satanic cabal.

If that actually happened, it would have been reported worldwide. Not only is Mel Gibson a celebrity and a Hollywood veteran, such a claim would have been explosive.

Yet, no legitimate media reported on such a shocking claim, even though it would have generated a lot of views. Not even celebrity blogs reported on it. That’s because it never happened.

Fact #2 : The People’s Voice Provided No Evidence

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article did not provide any actual evidence that Mel Gibson actually said that Hollywood pedos are using P. Diddy to cover up their crimes.

In fact, the article only made that claim in its title, but does not mention it again in the body. Instead, it goes all over the place and mentions random celebrities dying.

Interestingly, with the sole exception of the title, the article does not even mention Mel Gibson ever speaking about P. Diddy, never mind claim that he’s being used to cover up sex crimes!

Fact #3 : 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 Bruce Willis Just Die At Home After Years Of Suffering?!

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

Updated @ 2024-04-22 : Updated with new details and versions.

Claim : Bruce Willis Died At Home After Years Of Suffering!

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:

5 Minutes Ago / Bruce Willis DIED After A Long Battle With CANCER

10 Minutes Ago / Bruce Willis Just Died At Home / Goodbye Bruce Willis.

15 Minutes Ago / Bruce Willis Just Died At Home / Goodbye Bruce Willis

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

 

Truth : Bruce Willis Did Not Die At Home After Years Of Suffering!

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 Sunday, 21 April,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, 2023, or even April 2024 as alleged by people on social media. He’s very much still alive!

In fact, on Sunday, 21 April 2023, his family posted a video on Instagram, showing him with his granddaughter Louetta.

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 April 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, 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 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 this Prince William is the Antichrist quote 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.

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
Updated @ 2023-11-11 : Added Matthew Perry’s death certificate, and other updates.

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.

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.

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.

Updated @ 2023-11-11 : Added video, and some additional details.

People are sharing a photo on WhatsApp, Telegram and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, which claims / suggests that Gal Gadot just returned to Israel to join the fight against Hamas!

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

 

Truth : Gal Gadot Did Not Return To Israel To Fight Hamas!

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.

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

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”.

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.

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 Zendaya reject marriage proposal by Tom Holland?!

Did Zendaya reject a marriage proposal by Tom Holland at an intimate dinner party?!

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

 

Claim : Zendaya Rejected Marriage Proposal By Tom Holland!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that Zendaya recently rejected a marriage proposal by Tom Holland at an intimate dinner party!

Here is the viral Music Mundial article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Zendaya rejected marriage proposal from Tom Holland

Just a few days ago, UsWeekly reported that popular British actor Tom Holland was formally engaged to talented American actress Zendaya. Of course, the news was received with much love among fans of both artists, who support the relationship with a lot of passion.

Recommended : Did Miley Cyrus Officially Retire From Performing Live?!

 

No Evidence Zendaya Rejected Marriage Proposal By Tom Holland

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created by Music Mundial to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : US Weekly Never Said They Were Engaged

Music Mundial claimed that US Weekly reported that Tom Holland was formally engaged to Zendaya, but there does not appear to be any such report.

The closest thing would be a November 2022 report, in which US Weekly reported that the romance between Zendaya and Tom Holland seemed “serious and permanent”.

They’re both in settling-down mode and are absolutely planning for a real future together.

It is an absurd claim by Music Mundial because it completely contradicts its own story. If Tom Holland was formally engaged to Zendaya, that means Zendaya had already accepted his marriage proposal. That’s what engagement means.

That logical faux pas suggests that the Music Mundial article was possibly generated by AI.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Tom Holland Proposed To Zendaya

Music Mundial offered no evidence that Tom Holland actually proposed to Zendaya at an intimate dinner party, only to get rejected in front of everyone attending the party.

News of such a rejection would have been leaked to the many celebrity websites and blogs out there, and reported on breathlessly. Yet, the only “source” for the claim is Music Mundial?

Did Music Mundial attend that intimate dinner party? Did Music Mundial witness Tom Holland proposing to Zendaya, only to get rejected? No, Music Mundial claimed that “according to reports”. The trouble is – there are no such reports. Every article I’ve seen making this claim lead back to Music Mundial.

Fact #3 : Tom Holland + Zendaya Want Privacy

Tom Holland and Zendaya are famous for being very private about their relationship. Even though they were rumoured to be a couple when Spider-Man: Homecoming released in 2017, their romance was only confirmed when they were photographed kissing in Venice, in July 2021.

In November 2021, Tom Holland told GQ how they both felt “robbed” of their privacy when their relationship was exposed:

One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world

I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private because I share so much of my life with the world anyway. We sort of felt robbed of our privacy.

Tom Holland also said that he does not want to discuss their relationship without Zendaya. Whatever happens in their relationship, they will announce it together. A true gentleman.

It’s not a conversation that I can have without her, you know, I respect her too much. This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Music Mundial Fake News

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

AI Will Let Tom Hanks Appear In Movies After Death!

Hollywood legend Tom Hanks believes that AI (artificial intelligence) will let him continue appearing in movies long after his death!

 

Tom Hanks : AI will let me appear in movies after death!

In a recent interview, Tom Hanks says he believes he could continue appearing in movies long after his death, thanks to AI (artificial intelligence).

He said that AI could be used to recreate his image, ensuring that he would continue to appear in movies “from now until kingdom come”. But he admitted that AI posed both artistic and legal challenges to the movie industry.

This [legal ramification] has always been lingering. The first time we did a movie that had a huge amount of our own data locked in a computer – literally what we looked like – was a movie called The Polar Express

We saw this coming, we saw that there was going to be this ability to take zeros and ones from inside a computer and turn it into a face and a character. That has only grown a billion-fold since then and we see it everywhere.

The Polar Express, which was released in 2004, was the first movie to be entirely animated using digital motion capture technology.

Recommended : Did Tom Hanks Just Die Suddenly?!

AI technology is a boon for movie studios, which can now use it to recreate actors after they have died or are no longer capable of acting. For example, the voice of Darth Vader in The Book of Boba Fest and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series was AI-generated from James Earl Jones’ archival voice recordings.

AI is also being used to de-age actors, to allow actors to appear like younger versions of themselves. Most recently, it was used to make 80 year-old Harrison Ford appear much younger in the latest Indiana Jones movie.

However, AI poses a problem for actors because it can be used to create digital versions that are used without their permission, or without compensation to them or their families.

I can tell you that there is discussions going on in all of the guilds, all of the agencies, and all of the legal firms in order to come up with the legal ramifications of my face and my voice and everybody else’s being our intellectual property.

Anybody can now recreate themselves at any age they are by way of AI or deep fake technology. I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on.

Outside the understanding of AI and deep fake, there’ll be nothing to tell you that it’s not me and me alone. And it’s going to have some degree of lifelike quality. That’s certainly an artistic challenge but it’s also a legal one.

Well, Tom Hanks will soon experience that AI treatment again. In January 2023, it was announced that he and Robin Wright would be de-aged in Robert Zemeckis’ film adaptation of Here – a movie that follows the inhabitants of a single room over the course of several years. The film is set to be released in 2024.

Leslie Jordan : Autopsy + Cause of Death Revealed!

Beloved actor and comedian Leslie Jordan just died, and people are claiming he died from vaccine-induced sudden death!

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

Updated @ 2023-05-14 : Added the official cause of death for Leslie Jordan.
Updated @ 2022-10-28 : Added details of his last moments, and LAFD involvement.
Updated @ 2022-10-26 : Added details of his health issues, and deferred autopsy results

Originally posted @ 2022-10-25

 

Claim : Leslie Jordan Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Leslie Jordan died suddenly at 67 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the beloved actor and comedian died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on his death:

Vaccine causes heart attack that causes crash RIP Wasted talent Comedian Leslie Jordan dies at age 67

Leslie Jordan died from an experimental mRNA ‘vaccine’.

Leslie Jordan had a vaccident. 💉💉💉

Recommended : Robbie Coltrane : New Victim Of Vaccine Death Claim!

 

No Evidence Leslie Jordan Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

It’s now a 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-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Leslie Jordan Died After Crashing His Car

Leslie Allen Jordan (born April 29, 1955) passed away on Monday, October 24, 2022 – at 67 years of age.

There is no evidence that Leslie Jordan’s death had anything to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

At about 8:47 AM that day, Leslie Jordan crashed his BMW into the side of a building at Cahuenga Boulevard and Romaine Street in Hollywood, California.

He was the sole occupant, and not breathing when the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) officers arrived at the scene.

LAFD first responders quickly freed him from his vehicle, and tried to resuscitate him for more than 40 minutes, but failed. He was pronounced dead at 9:38 AM.

LAFD responders quickly freed him from his seat belt and removed him from the vehicle to commence CPR and defibrillation, which continued with advanced life support measures by LAFD Paramedics for more than 40 minutes.
– LAFD Captain Erik Scott

A law enforcement source said that the police believe Jordan may have suffered a heart attack and lost control before slamming his car into the building.

This photo taken by TMZ showed the crash scene where Leslie Jordan’s BMW hit the building.

A tow truck later removed Leslie Jordan’s car, showing heavy damage to the front passenger’s side. The left front wheel was almost ripped off the axle, attesting to the speed at which the car slammed into the building.

Fact #2 : Leslie Jordan Was Experiencing Shortness Of Breath

In the weeks leading to his death, Leslie Jordan was experiencing shortness of breath for the last 3 weeks.

He was so discomfited by his breathlessness that he scheduled to see a cardiologist next week to check out his heart. Unfortunately, he died before he could make that appointment.

Other than being breathless, Jordan had no other obvious health issues. He got infected by COVID-19 last year, but did not appear to suffer any severe illness from it.

Fact #3 : Leslie Jordan’s Cause Of Death Was Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Leslie Jordan’s cause of death was investigated as Case number 2022-11128, by Dr. Grant Ho, the Deputy Medical Examiner at the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

On January 19, 2023, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner released the final autopsy report for Leslie Jordan, listing his official cause of death as Sudden Cardiac Dysfunction, with Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease. The manner of death was “natural“.

So there you have it – the official cause of death for Leslie Jordan was sudden cardiac arrest, and not SADS, myocarditis, or anything related to the COVID-19 vaccine!

Read more : Mikaben : Vaccine NOT Cause of Sudden Death!

Fact #4 : Leslie Jordan Was Fully Vaccinated

Leslie Jordan was fully-vaccinated, getting his first dose on 6 February 2021 and his second dose on 1 March 2021, as he revealed in a video about Dolly Parton getting vaccinated on 2 March 2021.

When he got his first dose, he pointed out that the COVID-19 vaccine was nothing compared to all the drugs he put into his body before he got sober.

I figured I’ve put a hell of a lot worse things in my body with all the drugs I’ve done before sobriety. One good benefit of being a senior citizen.

He also shared that he was “a little achy – a tiny, tiny bit, but nothing,… nothing that should keep anyone from getting vaccinated“.

By all accounts, Leslie Jordan did not suffer any ill effects from his vaccination. In fact, a day after Dolly Parton got vaccinated on 2 March 2021, he sang to the tune of her famous song, Jolene:

Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine.

Stick me in the arms and in the ass.

Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine.

No, thank you, Covid, I’m gonna take a pass.

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

Leslie Jordan was fully-vaccinated over 19 months ago. He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many 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.

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 #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s a heart attack, SADS or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

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

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

Amber Heard Just Officially Changed Her Name?!

Did Amber Heard just officially change her name, after changing her domicile and job?!

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

 

Claim : Amber Heard Just Officially Changed Her Name!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that Amber Heard just officially changed her name, after changing her domicile and her job!

Here is the viral Music Mundial article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Amber Heard has officially changed her name and this is what she will be called

The well-known and contentious American actress Amber Heard keeps moving forward with one clear objective in mind: to fade from the Hollywood spotlight. After all the controversy she endured due to her court struggle with her ex-husband, also an actor named Johnny Depp, the star has decided to change her identity, her domicile, and even her job.

Recommended : Was Amber Heard Just Arrested For Perjury + Cocaine?!

 

Truth : Amber Heard Did Not Officially Changed Her Name!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created by Music Mundial to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Amber Heard Did Not Officially Change Her Name

First, let me just quickly say that there is no evidence that Amber Heard officially changed her name in any way.

In fact, the Music Mundial itself did not actually say that she changed her name, despite making the claim in the title.

Fact #2 : Amber Heard Is Using An Alias

After the domestic abuse trial concluded with a settlement of $1 million to her husband, Johnny Depp, Amber Heard moved to Spain to get more privacy.

Like many celebrities, she used an alias to stay under the radar. In Spain, she is allegedly using the alias, Martha Jane Canary.

That does not mean that she changed her name. It is only a temporary name (alias) used by celebrities to avoid media attention while travelling.

Fact #3 : Her Alias May Have Been A Dig At Johnny Depp

Interestingly, Martha Jane Canary is the real name for Calamity Jane, the infamous American frontierswoman and sharpshooter who killed many Native Americans.

It is possible that Amber Heard may have chosen to adopt Calamity Jane’s real name as her alias in a dig at her former husband, Johnny Depp. The Pirates of the Caribbean star has often stated that he has Native American blood.

I guess I have some Native American (in me) somewhere down the line. My great grandmother was quite a bit of Native American, she grew up Cherokee or maybe Creek Indian. Makes sense in terms of coming from Kentucky, which is rife with Cherokee and Creek.

He was also adopted as an honorary son by LaDonna Harris, making him an honorary member of the Comanche Nation, and was given a Comanche name, Mah Woo May, which means shapeshifter.

Truth : Harrison Ford Did NOT Die In Hospital / Plane Crash!

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 social media posts, as well as YouTube and TikTok videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported on Harrison Ford’s sudden death!

Harrison Ford is a Hollywood legend and a mega celebrity. His death would have been covered extensively by the media across the globe, and his legion of fans would have mourned his death on social media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet has reported that Harrison Ford died recently from any cause, never mind a tragic plane crash. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / TikTok videos?

Fact #2 : Harrison Ford Is Still Alive + Well!

Harrison Ford (born July 13, 1942) is still very much alive and well, as of April 2023, when he spoke to Total Film magazine for its April 27 issue.

In that interview, Harrison Ford confirmed that he won’t be playing Indiana Jones again, after Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is released.

This is the final film in the series, and this is the last time I’ll play the character. I anticipate that it will be the last time that he appears in a film.

That interview comes many days to weeks after those social media posts, YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that he died suddenly in a hospital or a tragic plane crash!

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

Fact #3 : This Plane Crash Photo Was From 2015

Harrison Ford has been flying for a long time. He learned to fly after leaving university, but could not afford to pursue it.

Only after he was financially stable in his 50s, did he renew his training to “see if I could learn something new”. He has since been involved in several crashes and near misses, but walked away in every instance.

In 1999, he was learning to fly a helicopter when he had to crash land it in a dry river bed in California. Ford and his instructor walked away unhurt, but the helicopter was badly damaged.

The photo below which some videos are using is from 2015, when Harrison Ford brought down his plane in a Los Angeles golf course, after suffering an engine failure shortly after taking off. He suffered a broken arm and some head injuries.

In 2017, Harrison Ford mistakenly landed his plane on a taxiway, narrowly missing an airliner carrying more than 100 people. In 2020, he mistakenly crossed the end of a runway while another aircraft was taking off from the other end.

Harrison Ford put his flying skills to good use, when he rescued a 13 year-old Boy Scout who went missing in the Yellowstone National Park in 2001. Ford spotted Cody Clawson in his helicopter, and landed to pick him up.

I was like, “Oh my God, Han Solo just rescued me. How could is that?

Just to be clear, Harrison Ford did not die in a plane crash, as of April 2023.

Fact #4 : This Photo Was From Geoff Nugent’s Funeral

This photo is not of Harrison Ford’s funeral, but shows the funeral of Liverpool musician Geoff Nugent from the band, The Undertakers who died in October 2014.

The photo was taken on 24 October 2014, at St. Chad’s Church, in Kirkby, Merseyside in England.

As you can see, the fake news creator added a photo of Harrison Ford to the photo, which is not visible in the real photo.

Recommended : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #5 : This Photo Was From Archie Battersbee’s Funeral

This photo is not of Harrison Ford’s funeral, but shows the funeral of Archie Battersbee – a 12 year-old boy who suffered catastrophic brain damage in Essex, England.

His funeral was held at the St. Mary’s Church in Southend on Tuesday, 13 September 2022.

Fact #6 : Harrison Ford Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Harrison Ford death hoax is, ironically, just another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

News of actor Harrison Ford’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the April 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 Indiana Jones or Star Wars is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Harrison Ford 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 Harrison Ford’s unnamed rep 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 Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Celine Dion, Justin Bieber, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Hanks, Dolly Parton, Lucy Liu, and Melanie Laurent.

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 Lance Reddick die suddenly from vaccine SADS?!

Did Hollywood star Lance Reddick die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?!

Claim : Lance Reddick Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Lance Reddick died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the John Wick and The Wire star was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine he received!

“Lance’s body was discovered at his Studio City home Friday morning around 9:30 AM.

Cause of Death “appears to be natural.” He was fully vaccinated.

Lance Reddick (born Lance Solomon Reddick on 7 June 1962) not only starred in the John Wick movies and The Wire TV series, he also provided the voice and likeness in games like the Destiny franchise and Horizon Zero Dawn

At around 9:30 AM on Friday, 17 March 2023, Lance Reddick was found to have collapsed in the backyard of his Studio City home in Los Angeles by his wife, Stephanie, who immediately dialled 911.

Unfortunately, he did not survive. His agent, Mia Hansen, later confirmed that Lance Reddick died from “natural causes” in his home.

Acclaimed actor Lance Reddick passed away suddenly this morning from natural causes. Lance will be greatly missed. Please respect his family’s privacy at this time.

Lance Reddick, who was 60 years old when he died, was survived by his wife, Stephanie Reddick, and two children, Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick.

Fact #2 : Lance Reddick’s Cause Of Death Was Heart Disease

On 6 April 2023, TMZ obtained the death certificate (PDF download) for Lance Reddick, which revealed that his immediate cause of death was ischemic heart disease with atherosclerotic coronary artery disease.

Lance Reddick’s cause of death was determined by Los Angeles County Deputy Coroner Adrian Salgado, who also certified that the manner of death was “natural“.

Recommended : Death Cert Reveals Christine McVie Died From Stroke!

I have to point out though that the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner did not conduct an autopsy of Lance Reddick, and his family is disputing their finding with their lawyer James Hornstein issuing this statement.

I have represented Lance Reddick for many years and continue to represent his wife Stephanie. The coroner statement on the death certificate is not a result of an autopsy. No autopsy was performed on Lance. To my knowledge, no medical examination of Lance during his lifetime ever indicated such conditions.

Lance was the most physically fit person I’ve ever known. He exercised daily at his home gym, including extensive cardio work, and the availability of gym facilities was a contractual requirement for his work away from home.

He ate as if a dietician was monitoring his every meal. The information appearing on the death certificate is wholly inconsistent with his lifestyle. On behalf of Stephanie Reddick, the death certificate information is not corroborated and is inconsistent with the facts known to the family.

Now, this does not mean that the LA County Deputy Coroner was incorrect in his assessment, or that the family is claiming that Lance Reddick died from the COVID-19 vaccine, or some other nefarious cause.

In fact, the family plans to cremate his body according to the death certificate. If they believe that cause of death was incorrect, they may delay that, and request for a private autopsy to be conducted.

As things stand though – there is still no evidence that his death was related to, or caused by, the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #3 : Lance Reddick Was Likely Vaccinated

Lance Reddick has never publicly revealed his COVID-19 vaccination status, but it is likely he was at least fully-vaccinated, because he shared at least two articles criticising anti-vaxxers in 2021.

But we cannot say for certain, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, and many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar who “died suddenly” were never vaccinated.

Claims that he just died after getting his booster dose are unfounded – he never mentioned getting the vaccine, much less a booster dose!

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

Even if Lance Reddick was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses more than a year ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #6 : 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 at 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 Sam Neill Get Blood Cancer From COVID Vaccine?!

Did Hollywood star Sam Neill develop stage three blood cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Sam Neill Developed Blood Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after Sam Neill revealed that he suffered from stage three blood cancer, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Hollywood star was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine he received!

The OpinionistNZ : B-cell lymphomas are associated with chronic inflammation. MRNA vaccines for COVID-19 induce inflammatory responses and there are now documented cases of vaccine induced lymphoma. Like to know if this has been ruled out in Neil’s case.

The All American : Jurassic Park actor Sam Neill diagnosed with stage-three blood cancer. Also a recipient of the Covid-19 vaccine. And to all you members of the Pro Vaccine Gestapo, all those conspiracy theorists were right. The vaccine kills.

In other Covid vaccine news, another young early stage 3 Cancer famous victim.. Is anyone else paying attention to the carnage from the mRNA experiment? #DiedSuddendly

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

 

Truth : Sam Neill Did Not Develop Blood Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

Fact #1 : Sam Neill Was Diagnosed With Lymphoma In 2022

Sir Sam Neill (born Nigel John Dermot Neill on 14 September 1947) revealed that he was diagnosed with stage three blood cancer in an interview with The Guardian on 17 March 2023.

He noticed that he had swollen glands while he was in Los Angeles on a publicity tour for his movie, Jurassic World Dominion. He was diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma and underwent chemotherapy in March 2022.

That was when he decided to write his memoir, Did I Ever Tell You This?, in which he started with a candid look at his own mortality:

The thing is, I’m crook. Possibly dying. I may have to speed this up.

Fact #2 : Sam Neill Is Now In Remission

Unfortunately, the first round of chemotherapy did not work, and things were looking grim for the New Zealander. A new and very expensive chemotherapy drug was then proposed.

This new chemotherapy drug is likely on clinical trial, which is why Sam Neill signed a contract with the unnamed drug company to receive it, and that the treatment would then become free if he was still alive after four months. He even joked about it in the interview:

Have you noticed I have a slight look of lab rat about me?

At that time, Sam Neill was the only person in New South Wales, Australia, to have this treatment, and when he moved back to New Zealand, he was the only person in the country to be on it.

Fortunately, this new chemotherapy drug worked, and Sam Neill is currently in remission. However, he must continue to have the monthly treatment for the rest of his life, and endure feeling “shithouse” for two days after each treatment when he doesn’t feel like eating.

I’m not off the hook as such, but there’s no cancer in my body.

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Call For COVID-19 Vaccine Withdrawal?!

Fact #3 : AITL Is Associated With Epstein-Barr Virus

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a rare and aggressive form of peripheral T-cell lymphoma – a type of blood cancer which mostly affects middle-aged or elderly patients. Sam Neill was 74 years old when he was diagnosed with AITL, which isn’t unusual.

But more importantly, angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma is highly associated with latent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection.

After getting an EBV infection, the virus remains in your body but becomes latent (inactive), and may reactivate later in life. In rare cases, it appears that the latent EBV infections can reactivate and trigger angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma.

Biopsies of AITL patients were shown to have EBV genomes in the tumour cells. In some cases, people with acute Epstein-Barr virus infections were found to have developed AITL!

AITL is, however, not associated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. It is certainly not associated with any COVID-19 vaccine, whether it uses mRNA or more traditional vaccine technologies.

Fact #4 : Sam Neill Is Likely Fully-Vaccinated

Sam Neill did not publicly reveal his vaccination status, but he is likely fully-vaccinated and boosted too, as he has always been supportive of measures to protect against COVID-19, including vaccines.

As far back as February 2021, he spoke out against antivaxxers, and said that “salvation lies in vaccinations”.

He also travelled to the United States and Australia, where it is mandatory for foreign travellers to be fully-vaccinated.

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 at 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 Michael J. Fox Die Suddenly From COVID-19?!

Did Michael J. Fox just die suddenly in a hospital from COVID-19 pneumonia?!

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

 

Claim : Michael J. Fox Died Suddenly From COVID-19!

People are sharing YouTube and Facebook videos claiming that Michael J. Fox died in a hospital from COVID-19 pneumonia, with titles like :

R.I.P. Michael J. Fox

Sad News, Michael J. Fox Passed Away Expected Soon Family Prepared To Say Goodbye!

Recommended : Is Chris Hemsworth Taking Break Over Alzheimer’s Gene News?!

 

Truth : Michael J. Fox Did Not Die From COVID-19!

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 : Michael J. Fox Is Still Alive + Well!

Michael J. Fox (born Michael Andrew Fox on June 9, 1961) is very much alive and well. He last tweeted on January 26, and shared an Instagram photo on February 15.

He also appeared at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, January 20, at the premiere of a new documentary about his life, career and work as a public advocate for Parkinson’s research.

As many of us know, Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 – a fact which he disclosed only in 1998. Despite his worsening symptoms, he continued to act until he was forced to retire in 2020.

But the most recent sighting of Fox was on February 19, 2023, when Lea Thompson posted a photo of her Back to the Future co-stars – Christopher Lloyd, Michael J. Fox, and Thomas F. Wilson , taken at Fan Expo Portland.

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

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.

Even though Michael J. Fox has been out of the limelight since his 2020 retirement, he is still a celebrity, and the media regularly reports on his activities.

Just a week ago, TODAY wrote an article on his twin daughter’s birthday, based on nothing more than an Instagram photo he posted on February 15, 2023!

If Michael J. Fox really did die, whether from COVID-19 pneumonia or a car accident, the worldwide media would have reported on it.

No legitimate media outlet reported that Michael J. Fox died in a hospital from any cause. Only a bunch of small-time YouTube and Facebook channels.

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Patient Photos Were Not Of Michael J. Fox

The fake video creators used photos of COVID-19 patients to convey the perception that Michael J. Fox died from COVID-19 pneumonia.

This photo, for example, does not show Michael J. Fox being intubated for COVID-19 pneumonia, but is a stock photograph by Kiryl Lis, called “Intubated adult white man under ventilator lying in coma in intensive care department. Patient in critical state.

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

This photo is a screenshot from a CBS8 video showing a COVID-19 patient being transported in a hospital. It appears to have been recorded on September 23, 2021.

Again, that is not Michael J. Fox on that hospital bed. The screenshot was just misappropriated to make you believe that’s him.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Fake Celebrity News

This is yet another example of fake celebrity news created to generate page views and money through advertising, just like these examples:

Hollywood Celebrities Start Vax-A-Thon To Fight Antivaxxers!

Hollywood celebrities are angry at antivaxxers, and have started a Vax-A-Thon to fight back!

 

Hollywood Celebrities To Antivaxxers : Piss Off!

Hollywood celebrities aren’t the brightest bulbs in America, but even they have finally gotten angry at antivaxxers for constantly claiming that they were being killed or injured by the vaccine.

No one was spared – Betty White, Louie Anderson, Bob Saget, Taylor Hawkins, and the great Bruce Willis!

Even worse – antivaxxers went after their own, claiming that stridently antivax Meat Loaf died from his booster dose!

That led antivax Jessica Biel to tearfully plead in a recent Rolling Stone interview :

What they did to Meat Loaf was wrong. So unfair! We did so much for them and they turned on us!

I’m all natural, 100% Pure Blood detoxed a thousand times! If I die, it’s not because of the vaccine!

Read more : Did Bruce Willis Get Aphasia From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

Hollywood Celebrities Start Vax-A-Thon To Fight Antivaxxers!

When antivaxxers started going after Bruce Willis, something broke. Not a dam. Maybe the rose-tinted glasses they have been wearing in the past two years.

So they got together for some mimosas and decided to do something about it – A Vax-A-Thon, with a twist.

For every $1000 donation to the FDA, you will get an autographed card of your favourite pharmaceutical executive. Pfizer’s Albert Bourla was reportedly 2:1 as popular as Moderna’s Stéphane Bancel. But Johnson & Johnson will give out cards signed by Ye, since they have no one famous on their team.

But here’s the kicker – if you can cough up a cool $1 million, you can get your favourite Hollywood celebrity to either receive or consume an ENTIRE COVID-19 vaccine vial of your choice!

Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds and beloved country songstress Dolly Parton were amongst the first celebrities to get a full vial “the traditional way” this morning, and say that they have never felt better in their lives!

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow declined to get the shot in her Pure Blood body, but will prepare and drink a delicious Moderna sorbet (recipe to be shared on Goop) on YouTube Live next week.

Jim Carrey reportedly wanted to reprise his 1997 “man kiss” of Alicia Silverstone with Paltrow on her YouTube Live stream, and slurp the Moderna sorbet from her mouth.

That Paltrow-Carrey livestream will certainly be interesting… if it happens! Brad Falchuk allegedly told Carrey to keep his super-big mouth out of his wife’s mouth.

Nicki Minaj, unfortunately, is not in the list of participating celebrities. Her spokesperson, however, issued a statement saying that she would be open to getting the full vial if Pfizer comes out with a version that gives her nails like Wolverine.

Oddball celebrity Steven Seagal asked to participate, but wished to gift the vial to his good friend, Vladimir Putin, who is forced to sit at really long tables because he was only vaccinated with Sputnik V. No word yet on whether his request was taken seriously, or laughed out of Tinseltown…

But if you are a Putin fan and want to keep him alive for another invasion of Georgia or the Baltic states, make sure you have $1 million handy!

Realme Chroma Boost Guide + Showcase Of US West Coast!

One of the new photography features of the Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro smartphones is Chroma Boost – an advanced HDR photography feature!

Find out what Chroma Boost does, and how you can use it to take better photos.

We will also share with you the many Chroma Boost photos we took across the US West Coast!

 

Realme Chroma Boost Primer

Realme introduced two new photography features in their Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro smartphones – a Nightscape mode, and Chroma Boost.

Chroma Boost is an advanced HDR feature that goes beyond HDR, which involves taking and combining multiple photos with different exposures.

On top of increasing the photo’s dynamic range, it will also correct and boost colour, while keeping control of noise.

 

Turning On Chroma Boost

Chroma Boost is so important that Realme made it the second icon at the top of the Camera app.

  1. To turn it on, just open the camera app, and tap on the second icon at the top.
  2. The Chroma Boost Is ON message will appear, and the Chroma Boost icon will appear in colour.

Until you turn it off, every photo your Realme 3 / Realme 3 Pro takes from now on will use Chroma Boost.

 

Turning Off Chroma Boost

  1. To turn it off, just open the camera app, and tap on the second icon at the top.
  2. The Chroma Boost Is OFF message will appear, and the Chroma Boost icon will turn black and show grey mountains.

 

When To Use Chroma Boost

Chroma Boost takes a considerable amount of time to take and process each shot – about 3 to 5 seconds.

So it is best used for planned shots of subjects that are not moving much. In fact, that’s the reason why it is turned off by default.

For most candid shots, or occasions where you want to take multiple shots quickly, you will probably want to disable Chroma Boost.

In the next part, we will show you the kind of shots Chroma Boost can deliver with our showcase of the Realme 3 in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Chroma Boost Sample Of Pier 39

This is the famous dock at the end of Pier 39, home to a number of California sea lions. It’s dusk – a really tricky time where the light isn’t great, but it’s not quite the time for using the Nightscape mode.

Surprisingly, it turned out much brighter than in real life, without getting washed out. You can see the sea lions in the foreground, as well as the bright lights of downtown San Francisco at the back.

 

Chroma Boost Samples Of Lombard Street

No tourist worth his or her name will visit San Francisco without going to the winding Lombard Street, even though it is really NOT the most crooked street in San Francisco.

That title really belongs to Vermont Street, near South of Market, although Lombard Street is definitely more picturesque. Plus, the Powell-Hyde cable car stops at the top!

As it so happened, we were there when the Zoox team decided to test their autonomous vehicle going down Lombard Street!

Chroma Boost Samples Of Alcatraz Island

A short (but expensive) hop off San Francisco is the infamous Alcatraz Island.

It’s ironic how so many people are clamouring to get into Alcatraz when quite a few prisoners (and guards) lost their lives during several escape attempts…

One thing we like about Chroma Boost is how well it keeps control of the highlights, while lifting out details from the shadows.

This picture was taken in very bright sunlight. Yet you can see the blue sky, and even the clouds!

In this example, the former residential apartments are in the shadow, and would normally look dark. But the doors and windows are clearly visible.

It also work great indoors. Especially if you are taking shots of static objects.

Take a close look at this picture. Not only does it have great dynamic range, it managed to capture the bird flying and the Oakland Bay Bridge in the distance.

In fact, you can even see the sloping streets of San Francisco!

It was not easy to get this shot, but well worth the many tries!

The only problem with using Chroma Boost – it limits the number of photos you can take in a certain amount of time. Not very suitable if you are on a fast moving boat!

In this shot of the Alcatraz Cruises pier, with the Transamerica Pyramid and Coit Tower in the background, note the shadows which show the direction of the sun.

Even though it was very bright, and the shadows much darker in real life, Chroma Boost managed to bring the details out of the shadows. And yet, the sky remained blue and not overblown.

Chroma Boost Samples Of Downtown San Francisco

Residential buildings in San Francisco are generally not very unique or interesting architecturally. The slopes of San Francisco are what’s truly interesting and unique.

Only when you get to the San Francisco Chinatown do you see more interesting building designs…

Chroma Boost Samples Of The Golden Gate Bridge

No tourist to San Francisco will ever skip going to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Featured in countless movies, and even torn apart by the likes of Godzilla, a Kaiju, earthquakes, a tsunami and Magneto, it is the very symbol of San Francisco!

But instead of just heading to the Visitor Center, we trekked to Golden Gate Bridge from the south side on a cold misty morning.

Chroma Boost helped to bring out the colour of the foreground, but the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin headlands remained enveloped in mist.

Here is a closer view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Welcome Center. You can see the bridge trusses clearly detailed, even on its underside.

We then drove over the Golden Gate Bridge to the North Vista Point.

Right next to it is Horseshoe Bay, home to the US Coast Guard Golden Gate Station, and the Presidio Yacht Club.

You can even see Alcatraz Island in the background on the right, and Treasure Island on the far right.

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

Chroma Boost Samples Of Muir Woods

To the north of San Francisco is the Muir Woods National Monument. Home to giant California redwood trees (Sequoia sempervirens), it is a very beautiful and peaceful place.

Even though these redwoods grow very tall, lighting is not a severe problem for taking photos at the bottom of these giants.

However, if you are attempting to take pictures of them from the bottom up, sunlight could make it really difficult to get a well-exposed shot.

Try using Chroma Boost, or a similar HDR feature, to capture the sunlight shining through the treetops while capturing the intricate bark details that would normally be shrouded in the shadow.

See how well it worked out in these two samples.

Chroma Boost Samples Of Hollywood + Rodeo Drive

We only had a short stay in Los Angeles, so we hit the usual tourist spots in Hollywood and Rodeo Drive.

First up is the TCL Chinese Theatre, located oh the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Many still know it as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

As it so happened, they barricaded it for the premiere of Catch-22. But this made it a great opportunity to use Chroma Boost – there was no one running across to spoil the shot!

While famous for its luxury boutique stores, Rodeo Drive isn’t very picturesque.

Arguably, the most picturesque spot is this internal street of the Two Rodeo shopping mall, which I believe is known as Via Rodeo Drive?

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

Chroma Boost Samples Of The Griffith Observatory

Sitting on the top of Mount Hollywood is the Griffith Observatory. It’s an awesome spot to look out at downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and the Pacific Ocean.

Unfortunately, it was a downcast day when we arrived. But Chroma Boost helped to boost exposure, and give the colours a little more pep.

View of downtown Los Angeles from the Griffith Observatory at 2X digital zoom with the Realme 3.

Despite the downcast skies, Chroma Boost brightened the sky and visibly increased the colour of the houses in the foreground.

It is actually possible to use Chroma Boost with moving indoor objects like this Foucault’s Pendulum. Look at the colour.

You just have to time it so that movement is minimal. In this case, it took us several tries to catch the pendulum at the end of the swing.

Chroma Boost Samples Of Santa Monica

What’s a trip to Los Angeles without a trip to the world famous Santa Monica Pier?

Over a hundred years old, it is a large, double-jointed pier that juts out of the end of Colorado Avenue into the Pacific Ocean.

It is more than just a pier, of course. It is home to Pacific Park, an amusement park, shops, pubs and restaurants.

Right at the very end is also a very popular angling spot.

Chroma Boost can really bring out the colours that are usually hidden in the shadows, like the pillars of the Santa Monica pier.

Despite being almost dusk, using Chroma Boost can increase the brightness of the scene.

Opened in 1996, Pacific Park is a 2-acre amusement park that is open to public on the Santa Monica Pier.

It was really getting pretty dark, so Chroma Boost came in handy in boosting the exposure of the scene, while keeping the colours looking pretty pep.

On the way back, we stopped by the Santa Monica 3rd Promenade, home of this Triceratops water fountain sculpture.

Despite the low light (it was dusk!), Chroma Boost helped to keep the Triceratops sculpture well-exposed, without overblowing the brightly-lit cafe in the background.

Any darker, we would definitely have to use the Nightscape mode!
