Truth : Bruce Willis Did Not Die In A 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 : Bruce Willis Is Still Alive + Well!
Bruce Willis is still very much alive and well, as of February 16, 2023.
He officially retired from acting in March 2022, after his aphasia diagnosis, but he did not die in 2022 as alleged.
Neither did he die in February 2023, as alleged, because his family just announced his aphasia was caused by frontotemporal dementia on February 16!
On top of that, his family posted a photo on his official Instagram account the same day, showing the Hollywood legend very much alive and well!

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.
Never mind the slew of ridiculously terrible movies he participated in, Bruce Willis remained a Hollywood mega star. His recent diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) got front page news all over the world!
If Bruce Willis really did die, whether from his dementia or a car accident, the worldwide media would have reported on it.
No legitimate media outlet reported that Bruce Willis died in a hospital from any cause. Only a bunch of small-time celebrity death blogs / small YouTube and Facebook channels.
Fact #3 : The 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 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.

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!
