Did Mandisa Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did American Idol star Mandisa just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mandisa Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Mandisa died suddenly at 47 years of age, some people immediately claimed or suggested the American Idol alumnus and Christian gospel singer was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : Mandisa, Grammy award-winning ‘American Idol’ alum, dead at 47. Died suddenly.

Covid vaccines are the #1 cause of sudden death according to statistics that I was able to gather on timing.

Oddly, nobody else is gathering these statistics. I wonder why?

K-Pop Singer-Songwriter Park Boram Found Dead at 30.

No cause of death #diedsuddenly

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Mandisa Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Mandisa’s Cause Of Death Has Not Been Determined

Let me start by pointing out that Mandisa’s cause of death has not been determined. So it would be ludicrous for anyone to claim that she died from the COVID-19 vaccines.

On Thursday, 18 April 2024, Mandisa (born Mandisa Lynn Hundley on 2 October 1976) was found dead in her Nashville-area home.

Mandia’s representative, The Media Collective, issued a statement confirming her death, and stating that her cause of death is not yet known:

We can confirm that yesterday Mandisa was found in her home deceased. At this time we do not know the cause of death or any further details. We ask for your prayers for her family and close knit circle of friends during this incredibly difficult time.

To be clear – neither Mandisa’s representative nor her family knows her cause of death.

Fact #2 : Franklin Police Is Investigating Her Death

Max Winitz, a spokesperson for the Franklin Police Department. said that its officers are involved in an “active death investigation” on Friday, 19 April 2024 – a day after Mandisa was found dead.

While he declined to confirmed her identity, he said that the death was being “Actively investigated”:

What I can confirm is that our officers responded to a residence for a death investigation Thursday evening, and it’s being actively investigated.

Until and unless the police, the coroner or her family announces her cause of death, or releases her autopsy report, anyone who claims that Mandisa died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Olivia Munn Get Turbo Breast Cancer From Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : Mandisa Suffered From Depression

Although her cause of death has not been determined or revealed, suicide appears to be a possibility. Mandisa revealed in a 2017 interview with ABC News that she struggled with depression, and even contemplated suicide.

It got pretty bad — to the point where if I had not gotten off that road I would not be sitting here today.

I was this close to listening to that voice that told me, ‘You can be with Jesus right now, Mandisa. All you have to do is take your life.’

Now, that does not necessarily mean Mandisa committed suicide. She could easily have died from a cardiac arrest, a heart attack, a stroke – common medical episodes that have been killing people long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Again, we should wait for the police investigative report, and her official cause of death, and not make baseless claims on social media!

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

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

It is possible that Mandisa was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

In fact, 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 her family (or the authorities) reveal her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Mandisa was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Recommended : Did OJ Simpson Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer?!

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

Even if Mandisa 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.

Updated @ 2024-04-20 : Updated with new version and new details.

Truth : Dolly Parton 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 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 and a legend in the music industry, 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, April 20, 2023, when she posted on Instagram with players from the New York Yankees at the Yankee Stadium.

And just two days earlier, she posted an Instagram photo promoting the pre-order of her upcoming cookbook – Good Lookin’ Cookin’ (US | UK | AU).

All those posts came many weeks to months after those YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that she died suddenly from cancer, a stroke, 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 “cancer”, 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 actually provided any evidence that Dolly Parton died from cancer, 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 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 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 Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, 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.

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.

Fact #6 : This Is Just Fake Celebrity News

Did Park Boram Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did K-pop star Park Boram just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Park Boram Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Park Boram died suddenly at just 30 years of age, some people immediately claimed or suggested the K-pop star was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Hello Dave #excessdeaths / ⚜️Cassandre🐦Colibri✝️ :

K-Pop Singer-Songwriter Park Boram Found Dead at 30.

No cause of death #diedsuddenly

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Park Boram Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Park Boram Reportedly Suffered Cardiac Arrest

On Thursday night, 11 April 2024, Park Boram (born Park Bo-ram 박보람 on 1 March 1994) was drinking with two friends at a residence in Namyangju, Gyeonggi, when she excused herself to go to the washroom.

When Park Boram did not return for an extended period of time, her friends looked for her and found her “slouched over the sink, unconscious” at around 9:55 PM. They called for an ambulance, while one of her friends performed CPR, and attempted to revive her.

Park Boram was reportedly suffering from a cardiac arrest when the police and emergency services reached her. She was transported t to the Hanyang University Guri Hospital, while receiving CPR, but was ultimately declared dead at 11:17 PM.

Fact #2 : Cause of Death + Autopsy Report Not Revealed Yet

An autopsy was conducted on Park Boram on Saturday, 13 April 2024, to determine her cause of death, while the police is conducting its own investigation into her death.

Until and unless the police, the coroner or her family announces her cause of death, or releases her autopsy report, anyone who claims that Park Boram died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Heavy Drinking Can Cause Sudden Cardiac Death

Park Boram was reportedly drinking heavily before her sudden collapse and death. This is important, as alcohol is known to have “an immediate effect on cardiac rhythm“, and previous studies have shown that “a notable proportion of sudden cardiac deaths (SCD) occur after alcohol intake“.

  • 2022 Finnish study suggests that majority of alcohol-related SCD occur at the late stage of inebriation.
  • 2024 Korean study suggests that moderate and heavy drinking was associated with significantly increased risk of atrial fibrillation

The autopsy will determine whether Park Boram’s alcohol consumption was a contributing factor to her death. So please wait for the autopsy report, and/or her cause of death, to be revealed.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Park Boram Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Park Boram was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Park Boram was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the South Korea.

In fact, 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 her family (or the authorities) reveal her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Park Boram was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Park Boram 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.

Did Taylor Swift Wear “I Love Vaccines, Abortions” Necklace?!

Did Taylor Swift wear a necklace that said, “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“?! Take a look at the viral photo, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Taylor Swift Wore “I Love Vaccines, Abortions” Necklace!

People are sharing a photo that appear to show Taylor Swift wearing a necklace that said, “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“!

Poo Crave : Taylor Swift blends fashion and politics sporting new necklace in New York tonight.

Recommended : Is Taylor Swift Performing Satanic Rituals At Eras Tour?!

 

Truth : Taylor Swift Did Not Wear “I Love Vaccines, Abortions” Necklace!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on Instagram and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Taylor Swift Necklace Photo Was Edited

Let me start by pointing out that Taylor Swift did not wear any necklace that said “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“.

If she actually wore something like that, it would have been reportedly by the mainstream media, as well as celebrity blogs. Yet, there was no legitimate media report, not even outrage by right-wing conservatives on social media.

That’s because it never happened – the photo was edited to falsely show that the pendant had the words “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“.

Fact #2 : It Was A Kobe Bryant Necklace

The silver necklace that Taylor Swift wore that night was designed by Vanessa Bryant – Kobe Bryant’s widow, for the Mambacita x ZC capsule collection sold by the jeweller Zoë Chicco.

The pendant featured Kobe Bryant’s famous quote – Bet on yourself, surrounded by a circle of diamonds.

As you can see in the photo of the actual necklace, the pendant does not say “”I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“.

Fact #3 : Vanessa Bryant Highlighted Taylor Swift’s Necklace

After fans share the photo of Taylor Swift wearing the Kobe Bryant necklace-pendant, Vanessa Bryant reposted the photo, adding “We Love You Taylor“, a love emoji, and a Swifties sticker.

Fact #4 : Taylor Swift Is Close To Kobe Bryant + His Family

Taylor Swift has known Kobe Bryant and his family for many years. In 2015, Kobe Bryant actually made a surprise appearance at Swift’s concert in Los Angeles, where he unveiled a special banner to celebrate Swift’s 16th sold-out performance at the Staples Center.

In his 2019 interview on The Jordan Harbinger Show, Kobe Bryant said that he was a big fan of Taylor Swift, and revealed that she was close to his daughters even before she became a megastar.

I think it’s important to listen to people who do great things, you know? So it’s not just genre specific but it’s like, Taylor’s been at the top of the game for a very, very long time. How and why?

She’s a sweet kid. I mean, she was a sweetheart to my girls before she even blew up and became Taylor Swift. So that’s why I’ll always, if she needs anything from me, I’m always there.

Sadly, on 26 January 2020, Kobe Bryant and his 13 year-old daughter, Gianna, died in a helicopter crash, together with seven other people. Taylor Swift quickly paid tribute to the NBA legend.

My heart is in pieces hearing the news of this unimaginable tragedy. I can’t fathom what the families are going through. Kobe meant so much to me and to us all. Sending my prayers, love, and endless condolences to Vanessa and the family and anyone who lost someone on that flight.

Vanessa Bryant later created the Mamba and Mambacita Foundation in memory of her husband and daughter.

Fact #4 : Taylor Swift Wore Necklace In January 2024

I should also point out that Taylor Swift did not wear the necklace “last night” as in 4 April 2024.

That photo was taken on Thursday, 11 January 2024, when Taylor Swift was spotted walking to the Electric Lady Studios in New York City, wearing a fuzzy zebra-print jacket, olive green T-shirt and a pair of black leggings, with Ivy Park sneakers, a pair of sunglasses and a round necklace pendant.

Is Taylor Swift Performing Satanic Rituals At Eras Tour?!

Is Taylor Swift performing three different Satanic rituals at her Eras Tour concerts?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Taylor Swift Is Performing Satanic Rituals At Era Tour!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that an entertainment industry insider has revealed that Taylor Swift is performing Satanic rituals at her Eras Tour concerts!

Industry Insider Reveals Taylor Swift Is Performing ‘Satanic’ Rituals At Eras Tour Concerts

Recommended : Did Taylor Swift Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual?!

 

Truth : Taylor Swift Is Not Performing Satanic Rituals At Era Tour!

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

Fact #1 : Shane Lynch Provided No Evidence

Let me start by pointing out that Shane Lynch, who was formerly a member of Boyzone, did indeed claim that Taylor Swift was performing “Satanic rituals” at her Eras Tour concerts.

I think when you’re looking at a lot of the artists out there, a lot of their stage shows are Satanic rituals live in front of 20,000 people without them realising and recognising. You’ll see a lot of hoods up and masks on and fire ceremonies.

Even down to Taylor Swift – one of the biggest artists in the world – you watch one of her shows and she has two or three different demonic rituals to do with the pentagrams on the ground, to do with all sorts of stuff on her stage. But to a lot of people it’s just art and that’s how people are seeing it, unfortunately.

However, Shane Lynch provided no evidence to back up his claims that Taylor Swift was performing two or three different “demonic rituals” at her Eras Tour concerts.

Wearing hoods or masks isn’t Satanic, neither are “fire ceremonies”, whatever those are. There is also no evidence of any pentagram on Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour stage at any venue.

Fact #2 : Devil’s Horns Are Not Satanic

The People’s Voice article called “the sign of the horns” a Satanic symbol. That’s not true.

The hand gesture that Taylor Swift flashed (and so did Ice Spice at the Super Bowl) is also referred to as “devil’s horns”. However, it is not demonic or Satanic. In fact, several cultures use it to ward off evil spirits!

It was popularised by Ronnie James Dio of the heavy metal band, Heaven & Hell and the rock band Black Sabbath, who copied it from his Italian grandmother who often used it. In the Italian culture, the sign of the horns is a protective gesture like the pentagram. Called el corna, it is used traditionally to ward off the “evil eye” (mallocio).

It’s not the devil’s sign like we’re here with the devil. … It’s to ward off the Evil Eye or to give the Evil Eye, depending on which way you do it. So it’s a bit like “knocking on wood.”

The sign of the horns is also used by Hindus and Buddhists. The hand gesture is called “Karana Mudrā“, and is used to “expel demons” and remove “sickness or negative thoughts“. So the showing the sign of the horns is actually the OPPOSITE of worshipping Satan or evil spirits.

In modern times, the devil’s horns / sign of the horns has become a common rock ‘n’ roll gesture, and a mainstream way of saying, “Hell, yeah!“, or “Rock on!

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:

Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Celine Dion just died suddenly in the hospital?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-02-24 : Added new updates, including updated MediaMass claim.
Updated @ 2023-08-31 : Added video, and updated with new examples, etc.

Claim : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube and TikTok videos claiming that Celine Dion just died in a hospital from Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), or after a tragic car / plane crash, with titles like :

30 minutes ago, R.I.P. Celine Dion (†55) Died on the way to the hospital, Farewell in tears

1 Hour Ago / R.I.P Celine Dion Died In France / Fans send their condolences to the singer

Recommended : Did Celine Dion Attend Son’s Wedding In Wheelchair?!

 

Truth : Celine Dion Did Not Die Suddenly In 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 Her Death

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

When Celine Dion announced that she was suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome, the media breathlessly reported it around the globe.

Celine Dion is not just a famous singer. She is a national treasure in Canada, and a music legend. If she fell and broke a nail, you can be sure that celebrity blogs would have excitedly reported it, if not the mainstream media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet or even a celebrity blog reported that Celine Dion was involved in any car or plane crash, much less died in a hospital of a “dangerous, incurable disease”. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Celine Dion Is Still Alive!

The truth is – Celine Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) is very much still alive, as of Saturday, 24 February 2024! Of course, you guys want “proof of life”, right?

Well, on Sunday night, 4 February 2024, Celine Dion appeared at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards, to present the award for the Album of the Year to Taylor Swift. The 55 year-old singer walked out by herself to “The Power of Love”, which Taylor Swift sang along to with the crowd.

Thank you all. I love you right back. When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it from my heart.

Those who have been blessed enough to be here, the Grammy Awards, must never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music bring to our lives and to people all around the world.

And now it gives me great joy to present a Grammy Award that two legends — Diana Ross and Sting — presented to me 27 years ago.

Wearing a pastel gown and brown coat, Celine Dion would later be photographed embracing Taylor Swift after the awards show. Needless to say – Celine Dion is very much still alive. She doesn’t even need to use a wheelchair, even though she is still suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome!

Fact #3 : Celine Dion 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.

This is a pretty good Photoshop effort, although you can see how Celine Dion’s dark brown hair suddenly became grey hair. And of course, you have to wonder why Celine Dion would still has her makeup on!

The truth is the fake news created edited the photo of Jan Key – a 65 year-old lady from Kalamazoo, Michigan, who was hit by a car on November 21, 2019.

The photo was taken by her daughter, Kitty Jenkins, on November 26, after Jan Key underwent a second surgery for her broken arm and collarbone. She underwent emergency surgery five days ago to treat her broken leg.

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

This photo, on the other hand, is a pretty bad Photoshop edit of a photo taken at the August 2018 funeral of Oliver Dragojević – a famous Croatian singer and composer.

To make it look like a Celine Dion funeral, the fake news creator added Lady Gaga appearing to cry, and unbelievably – René Angélil was edited in, with a portrait of Celine Dion magically floating in front of him.

For those who are not aware, René Angélil was Celine Dion’s manager who eventually married her on December 17, 1994. The only problem is – René Angélil died many years ago – on January 14, 2016 from throat cancer!

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

But I would like to give a special Bad Photoshop award to the fake news creator who came up with this gem.

Not only did he/she use the visage of a smiling Celine Dion, it was stitched on so badly, it’s really, REALLY funny!

Celine Dion, who was supposed to be dying in hospital from a terrible car accident, not only has both her eyes open and smiling, it looked the accident smashed her face sideways!

What a terrible, terrible Photoshop edit! If you are going to cheat people, at least put in some effort!

Fact #4 : Celine Dion Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Celine Dion death hoax is, sadly, 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 singer Céline Dion’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the February 2024 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 S’il suffisait d’aimer, My Heart Will Go On or Pour que tu m’aimes encore is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Celine Dion 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 Celine Dion’s unnamed rep confirming that she 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, Bruce Willis, 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.

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.

Did Toby Keith Die Suddenly On The Way To Hospital?!

Did country music star Toby Keith just die suddenly on the way to a Los Angeles hospital, or in the hospital, from stomach cancer?!

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

Updated @ 2024-02-06 : Added Toby Keith’s true death details.
Originally posted @ 2023-06-17

 

Claim : Toby Keith Died Suddenly On The Way To Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube videos claiming to prove that Toby Keith just died suddenly on the way to the hospital from stomach cancer, with titles like :

Heart stopped beating, country singer Toby Keith died of stomach cancer at Los Angeles hospital

5 minutes ago / R.I.P Singer Toby Keith Died on the way to the hospital / Goodbye Toby Keith.

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

 

Truth : Toby Keith Died At Home After Fighting Cancer!

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 : Toby Keith Died At Home

Toby Keith (born Toby Keith Covel on July 8, 1961) passed away at home on the night of 5 February 2024, surrounded by his family.

He did not die on the way to the hospital, or in a Los Angeles hospital. He died at home in Norman, Oklahoma, where he has a 10,000 square foot home in a sprawling estate.

Those claims were made by fake news creators on YouTube, TikTok, and social media platforms, months and years before he died.

Toby Keith’s death was announced on his official Instagram page, days after he posted a video speaking about how he did an undercover show at the Fillmore club in New York City, as the “Incognito Bandito” band. His publicist, Elaine Schock, also confirmed his death.

Toby Keith also appeared in public on the Bobby Bones Show in early January 2024, speaking about his stomach surgery, and working on his singing. At that time, Toby Keith said that his health was improving.

Toby Keith was 62 years old when he died. He leaves behind his wife, Tricia, and three children – Shelley, Krystal, and Stelen.

Fact #2 : Toby Keith Fought Stomach Cancer

Toby Keith announced in June 2022 that he had been diagnosed with stomach cancer at the end of 2021. He said that he underwent chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery in the past six months since that diagnosis.

Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I’ve spent the last six months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover and relax.

In November 2022, Toby Keith told CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Cody Alan, that he was thinking about getting back to “fightin’ shape” as the cancer treatment was “pretty debilitating”. However, he suggested that everything was looking good.

I’m thinking about getting back to fightin’ shape. I need a little bit of time to just rest up and heal up. It’s pretty debilitating to have to go through all that, but as long as everything stays hunky-dory, then we’ll look at something good in the future.

On June 2, 2023, Toby Keith posted a rare photo of himself to raise awareness for the non-profit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. He looked noticeably thinner, but very much still alive.

Then on July 15, 2023, he posted a video singing at the back of his Uber ride, which had a karaoke machine! He looked much better in this video. By January 2024, he told Bobby Bones that he no longer had “any issues” with his health.

While his family did not announce his cause of death, in all likelihood, Toby Keith died from stomach cancer.

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

 

Fact #3 : Toby Keith Hospital Photos Were Edited

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

This photo used to show Toby Keith unconscious and intubated in a hospital bed is actually a photo of Pittsburgh radio DJ, Sean McDowell, who retired from the WDVE station in May 2019.

In August 6, 2019, he posted these photos on Twitter, revealing that a year ago – on August 6, 2018, he had an operation to fix his heart’s mitral valve.

Exactly 1 year ago today, St. Clair Hospital, Dr. Scott Halbreiner sawed thru my sternum, opened my rib cage, fixed my heart (mitral valve) & then wired me shut! Biggest Thanks Ever to Dr. Halbreiner, Dr. Dave Burkey & the nurses in the CVSU! Because of you guys, I’m still here!

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

This photo of an intubated man lying in a hospital bed is actually a stock photo with a photo ID of 1745351552 on Shutterstock. It was taken on May 20, 2020, with the following description.

DUQUE DE CAXIAS,(BRAZIL),MAY,20,2020: doctors take care of patients with covid-19 and an intensive care unit (ICU) at hospital são josé specialized in the treatment of covid-19

Fact #4 : Toby Keith Death Hoax Was Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Toby Keith death hoax, ironically, was also being driven by another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project.

News of singer Toby Keith’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.

Did Taylor Swift Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual?!

Did Taylor Swift murder a fan, and drink his blood in a satanic blood ritual, in order to join the Illuminati?!

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

 

Did Taylor Swift Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual?!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Taylor Swift murdered a fan, and drank his blood, in a satanic blood ritual in order to join the Illuminati!

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

Taylor Swift ‘Murdered a Fan’ In Satanic Blood Ritual To Join Illuminati, Insider Claims

Recommended : Was Brad Pitt Just Found Dead From Suicide?!

 

Truth : Taylor Swift Did Not Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual!

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

Fact #1 : Taylor Swift Did Not Murder Anyone

Let me start by simply pointing out that there is no evidence Taylor Swift murdered anyone, neither fan or enemy, in order to join the Illuminati.

If there was even a whiff of such a crime, it would have been covered breathlessly by the media all over the world, and the many celebrity blogs. Yet, no legitimate media outlet or celebrity blog mentioned this juicy story?

The People’s Voice certainly offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim. Perhaps it will at least lodge a police report and give them the evidence? I won’t hold my breath for that…

Fact #2 : That Photo Was Taken In October 2015

The People’s Voice article and video used a pixelated photo of Taylor Swift with a fan. Was this supposed to be the fan she was alleged to have murdered?

But we know that it can’t possibly be the child Taylor Swift was accused of murdering in 2009, because the photo was taken in October 2015 – some 6 years later!

If that was not the child that Taylor Swift allegedly murdered, then why did they use that photo?

Recommended : Was Oprah Just Exposed In Jeffrey Epstein Client List?!

Fact #3 : That Was A Little Girl, Not A Boy

On top of that – that photo does not show Taylor Swift with a little boy. That child is actually a 6 year-old girl called Taylor Rayburn.

Taylor Swift’s mother, Andrea Swift, noticed Taylor Rayburn at Taylor Swift’s concert in Atlanta, Georgia, and invited her to sit together during the show.

After the show, Andrea Swift invited Taylor Rayburn, who was suffering from a rare form of kidney cancer, to meet her daughter for a hug and photo op. Taylor Rayburn’s mother would later post the photos above on Facebook, with the caption:

Thank you Mrs. Andrea and Taylor Swift for making my child’s year! She needed this!

Taylor and her entourage were the sweetest and most humble people. She is just like you see on tv…I think we were all star struck!:)

This is a night she will always remember!! She left saying, ‘I can’t tell if this is a dream or for real!’ So amazing!

Isn’t it disgusting that some people would stoop so low as to use this little girl’s photo to create fake news???

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

Truth : Justin Bieber Did Not Die In Car Accident!

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 / TikTok / Facebook videos have been circulating for days now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Justin Bieber’s death.

Justin Bieber is a megastar, with a beautiful celebrity model wife. If something happened to him, not will it be eagerly reported on by celebrity blogs, the worldwide media would no doubt cover it too.

When Justin Bieber revealed that he is suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, the worldwide media breathlessly reported on his condition, including he cancelled the rest of his concerts.

No legitimate media outlet has reported that Justin Bieber died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites like NewsC60 / Fact Journal Media / NewsC8, or random YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos?

Fact #2 : Justin Bieber Is Still Alive + Well!

Justin Bieber is still very much alive and well, as of Sunday, 14 January, 2024. Of course, you want “proof of life”, don’t you?

Well, Justin Bieber himself posted a series of photos and videos on Instagram on 7 January 2024, to share how excited he is for 2024:

excited for this next year. New beginnings

One of them is a video of him playing golf. Needless to say – he looks very well, f or someone who allegedly got smashed into pieces in a terrible car accident.

This happened many days, weeks and even months after those YouTube / TikTok / Facebook videos claimed that he died in a high speed car accident! What a miracle!

Obviously, we can confirm that all those videos and articles about Justin Bieber dying from a tragic car accident are FAKE.

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber “Died Suddenly” Photos Were Edited

I analysed this photo used in some of the videos, and confirmed that Justin Bieber wasn’t even involved in that car accident, never mind die in it.

This is actually a photo of a car accident that happened in July 2022, involving Justin Bieber’s step grandmother, Kathy Bieber.

Marty Denham was outside his shop when he heard a loud noise on Lorne Avenue West and saw one vehicle had collided with another.

“I had my back to it, I turned around, there was probably a five-count and the entire car blew up behind them,” he said.

One of the vehicles was consumed by flames almost instantly.

That’s when Denham saw a woman jump out of the car to safety.

“We thought we were watching a person die because we thought the girl was the passenger.”

Denham said one of the people involved in the crash was Kathy Bieber, who is married to the pop star’s grandfather on his dad’s side of the family.

Why Sinead O’Connor Did Not Die From Vaccine / Suicide / OD!

Did Irish singer Sinead O’Connor die suddenly from vaccine SADS, suicide, or a drug overdose?!

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

Claim : Sinead O’Connor Died Suddenly From Vaccine / Suicide!

Right after news broke that Sinead O’Connor died unexpectedly at just 56 years old, some people immediately claimed that the Grammy-winning Irish singer died suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), while others suggested that she committed suicide.

Carl E. Miller : Another fully vaccinated celebrity SINEAD O’CONNOR does [dies] at 56 years old. Of course the vaccine may not be the cause, but it may be the cause too. At least worth noting that she took several doses of an experimental vaccine. Seems reasonable to point that out.

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

 

Truth : Sinead O’Connor Did Not Die From Vaccine Or Suicide!

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 : Sinead O’Connor Was Found Dead In London

Born Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor on December 8, 1966, Sinead O’Connor was an Irish singer and musician who released ten studio albums, and won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance after receiving several nominations.

On Wednesday, 26 July 2023, her family announced that Sinead O’Connor died at the age of 56, in a statement to The Irish Times:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad.

Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.

Later, it was revealed that Sinead O’Connor was found dead in her flat in South London. She only recently returned to London after a long absence.

Sinead O’Connor (Shuhada’ Sadaqat) was laid to rest in Bray, in County Wicklow, Ireland, on Tuesday, 8 August 2023. A private funeral service followed a public procession past her family home, which was attended by Irish President Michael D. Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, as well as Bob Geldof and Bono.

Fact #2 : Her Cause Of Death Was Natural

Sinead O’Connor’s family did not announce her cause of death, because an autopsy had been ordered to look into her death.

The coroner later revealed that it did not know when Sinead O’Connor actually died, and an autopsy had been ordered to determine her cause of death. However, the Metropolitan Police said at that time that it was not treating her death as suspicious.

On 3 August 2023, Sinead O’Connor’s remains were released to her family, after the autopsy was completed. However, the autopsy report would not be completed “for some weeks”, according to a statement issued by John Thompson, the clerk of the London Inner South district for Southwark Coroners Court. It also said that the conclusion will be publicly disclosed if an inquest is opened into her death.

It was many weeks later – on Tuesday, 9 January 2024, when the Southwark Coroner’s Court in London issued a brief statement, ruling Sinead O’Connor’s cause of death as “natural”:

This is to confirm that Ms O’Connor died of natural causes. The coroner has therefore ceased their involvement in her death.

The coroner did not mention her official cause of death, but a ruling that she died of natural causes ruled out dying from unnatural causes like a suicide, or a vaccine side effect.

Fact #3 : Sinead O’Connor Had Mental Health Problems

Sinead O’Connor had been open about her mental health struggles for many years now, even sharing them publicly on social media.

On 4 October 2007, she revealed on The Oprah Winfrey Show that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder four years earlier.

In 2012, she cancelled a tour after suffering from a “very serious breakdown”. Her mental health also suffered after she underwent a radical hysterectomy in 2015.

In 2021, she told The Guardian that she was also diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and borderline personality disorder, and had been in and out of the hospital for mental health treatment. She even called the St. Patrick’s psychiatric hospital in Dublin her second home:

Thank God I spent a lot of the last six years there, because otherwise I wouldn’t be alive.

I’m 10% bipolar, apparently, 40% complex traumatic stress and the rest is borderline personality disorder.

In January 2022, she was devastated by news that her 17 year-old son, Shane, committed suicide after escaping from a hospital in Bray while on suicide watch.

Bob Geldof later said that Sinead O’Connor had sent him text messages in the weeks before her death, which were “laden with desperation, despair and sorrow“, while others were “ecstatically happy“, suggesting that she was suffering from bipolar mood swings.

There’s no other option, as all of you know, than to just keep on. Many, many times Sinead was full of a terrible loneliness and a terrible despair.

She was a very good friend of mine. We were talking right up to a couple of weeks ago. Some of her texts were laden with desperation and despair and sorrow and some were ecstatically happy. She was like that.

However, we now know that Sinead O’Connor did not commit suicide.

Fact #4 : Sinead O’Connor Attempted Suicide Several Times

Sinead O’Connor battled thoughts of suicide for many years, and even attempted suicide several times. This September 2011 tweet even resulted in a visit by the police:

I want to go to heaven SO bad. Have for [years] … Can’t manage any more. Badly wish [could] die without it ruining kids’ lives.

She would later tell The Guardian that she attempted suicide several times in the past:

In the past I have made several suicide attempts. I would take the pills and say to God: ‘OK it’s up to you, you decide’ and then of course I would wake up three or four days later.

She also became suicidal after her hysterectomy in 2015, telling The Guardian:

Nobody had explained to me or my family that she’s going to be a crazy bitch because we took her ovaries for no reason. So the children were terrified of me. Angry. Raging. I was furious. I was completely gone. I was suicidal.

A week after her son’s death in January 2022, Sinead was briefly admitted to the hospital after posting several tweets that she had “decided to follow” his path.

Just weeks before her death, Sinead O’Connor tweeted about the pain of losing her son, saying that she was “living as undead night creature” since he died:

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭#lostmy17yrOldSonToSuicidein2022.
Been living as undead night creature since. . He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him.

Of course, now that the coroner has ruled Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes, we know for sure she did not commit suicide as some have speculated.

Fact #5 : Sinead O’Connor Had History Of Drug Use

Sinead O’Connor had a long history of drug use. She smoked cannabis for some 34 years, and only went to a rehabilitation centre in 2016 to treat her addiction.

In 2021, Sinead O’Connor recounted how she and her fourth husband, Barry Herridge, ended up scoring some crack cocaine on their wedding night in Las Vegas.

In November 2020, she entered a drug rehabilitation facility for a year to seek treatment for “trauma and addiction” to a different drug:

I had a very traumatic six years and this year was the end of it but now recovery starts.

This year I lost someone beloved and has affected me so badly that I became briefly addicted to a drug other than weed.

While it is plausible given her history of drug use, this does not mean that Sinead O’Connor died suddenly from a drug overdose.

Of course, now that the coroner has ruled Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes, we know for sure she did not die from a drug overdose, as some have speculated.

Fact #6 : Sinead O’Connor Was Fully-Vaccinated Against COVID-19

In May 2021, Sinead O’Connor tweeted a (now deleted) photo with her son, Shane, and shared that they both received their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine:

2nd vaccine today, my lovely 17 yr old son coming with me 🙂 Behold Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor.

However, that does not mean she died from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect. After all, she received that dose more than two years earlier! The coroner also determined that Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes.

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

Sinead O’Connor cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 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.

Fact #8 : This Is Just Celebrity Fake News

Ultimately, this is just another example of fake news created about celebrities, like these other recent examples:

Will these fake news creators apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity fake news…

Truth : Barry Gibb 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 Barry Gibb’s death.

Barry Gibb is more than just an international celebrity, he is a living legend. Even if he only tripped in public and grazed his shin, it would have been breathlessly reported on by the celebrity blogs, if not the mainstream media.

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

Fact #2 : Barry Gibb Is Still Alive + Well!

Sir Barry Alan Crompton Gibb (born 1 September 1946) is very much alive, as of Friday, 29 December 2023. But of course, you want “proof of life”, don’t you?

Well, on 22 December 2023, CBS Mornings posted a video clip of Barry Gibb telling their reporter, Anthony Mason, about his legacy, and how fame impacted his relationship with his brothers.

As you can see, Barry Gibb is not only alive, he looks to be very healthy and in good shape!

Barry Gibb earlier posted a photo of himself at his 2017 concert on June 24, 2023, after thanking the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for selecting to honour him for lifetime artistic achievements this coming Sunday, December 3, 2023.

I am beyond honored to share I am going to be recognized as part of the 46th class of Honorees at the Kennedy Center. #KCHonors

Meet all the Honorees being celebrated in December, and stay tuned for the broadcast on @CBS ➡ tkc.co/Honors The Kennedy Center CBS

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

Fact #3 : The 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 purportedly shows Barry Gibb’s funeral procession, was edited from a real photo of the funeral procession for Jade Goody – an English television personality who died of cancer on 22 March 2009.

The photo was taken by Chris Rayburn for the Associated Press on Saturday, 4 April 2009, as her funeral procession passed through Loughton, on the way to St. John the Baptist Church in Buckhurst Hill, England.

If you look carefully at the original photo on the right, you can see pink balloons spelling out “Jade From Bermondsey“. Jade Goody was born on 5 June 1981 in Bermondsey, London.

The fake news creator cropped that out, and added a super-large photo of Barry Gibb to the top of the hearse, to trick you.

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

The photo which is being used to show Barry Gibb’s funeral is actually a screenshot from the Women and Death episode from the TV drama, Desperate Housewives, which aired on Sunday, March 18, 2012.

The “photo” shows Susan Mayer (played by Teri Hatcher) crying over the coffin of Mike Delfino (played by James Denton).

It certainly does NOT show Teri Hatcher crying over Barry Gibb’s funeral, that’s for sure!

This photo does not show the Barry Gibb’s coffin being carried during his funeral. It was actually edited from a photo of the John Gotti funeral, taken outside the Papavero Funeral Home by Chet Gordon of TopFoto.

Mob boss John Gotti was laid to rest on June 15, 2002, after dying of cancer in a federal prison hospital in Missouri. Obviously, that was not Barry Gibbs’s funeral because he was very much still alive in 2002!

The fake news creator just added a large photo of Barry Gibb to trick you into thinking that it was his funeral.

Fact #4 : Barry Gibb Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Barry Gibb 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 singer Barry Gibb’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, Bee Gees singer is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Barry Gibb 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, 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.

Is Celine Dion Now Forced To Use A Wheelchair?!

Was Celine Dion forced to attend her son’s wedding in a wheelchair after suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome?!

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

Updated @ 2023-06-30 : Added video and other updates

Claim : Celine Dion Attended Her Son’s Wedding In Wheelchair!

People are sharing TikTok and YouTube videos which claim to show Celine Dion attending her son’s wedding in a wheelchair, after being diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome.

It’s just so heart breaking to watch !!

Singer Celine Dion attending her son’s wedding, she was diagnosed with a rare neurological condition known as stiff-person syndrome.

A reminder that health is the most important aspect of life…..

Truth : Celine Dion Did Not Attend Her Son’s Wedding In A Wheelchair!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to go viral on TikTok and other social media platforms, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Celine Dion Revealed Her Diagnosis In December 2022

First, let’s start with a quick recap on Celine Dion’s recent health problems.

Celine Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) announced in an emotional video on 8 December 2022, that she had been struggling with health issues for a long time.

She did not mention how long ago she started experiencing muscle spasms, but they became so “severe and persistent” that on 19 October 2021, she delayed her Las Vegas residency. Then on 15 January 2022, she was forced to cancel the US and Canadian concerts from 9 March to 22 April 2022.

It was only recently that the muscle spasms Celine Dion was suffering from was diagnosed as Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) – a rare neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease.

I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time. And it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.

Recently I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called Stiff Person Syndrome which affects something like one-in-a-million people.

While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all of the spasms I’ve been having.

Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.

Fact #2 : That Was Kathy Poirier, Not Celine Dion

The lady in the wheelchair was not Celine Dion, but a 55 year-old mother called Kathy Poirier from Florida.

Kathy Poirier suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is a progressive nervous system disease that causes a loss of muscle control.

When her 28 year-old son, Zak Poirier, married Anja d’Adesky, 27, on 9 April 2022, she had already lost the ability to walk, and arrived in a wheelchair.

Kathy Poirier and her sons

Fact #3 : Kathy Poirier Danced With Her Son

The viral TikTok video was edited to show Celine Dion (really Kathy Poirier) being lifted to hug her son who tears up, before she is placed back on her wheelchair.

In the real video, Kathy actually danced with her son on his wedding day! In his now-deleted Instagram post, Zak explained:

My Mom was diagnosed with ALS shortly before I graduated law school. Since that time, I’ve watched her bravely fight her diagnosis and challenge the odds against her.

Despite not being able to stand on her own, my Mom and I shared a dance at my wedding. She inspires me every day to be humble, kind and selfless. Love you Mom.

On that day, Zak and his two brothers escorted her to the dance floor for the mother-son dance. The three brothers then lifted her off the wheelchair.

With his brothers holding her upright, Kathy Poirier was able to dance with Zak that day. Her sons then lowered her back onto her wheelchair while their guests gave them a standing ovation.

Their wedding planner, Root to Stems also posted a video on Instagram, which went viral last year.

Fact #5 : Celine Dion Can Still Stand + Walk

Just to be clear, Celine Dion is not suffering from ALS, but from SPS – Stiff Person Syndrome.

As of April 2023, Celine Dion is able to stand and walk on her own, as well as sing and act. This is obvious from the posts (example) she made to promote her movie with Priyanka Chopra and Sam Heughan – Love Again.

Did Lil Tay + Jason Tian Just Die Suddenly?!

Did Lil Tay and her older brother, Jason Tian, just die suddenly?!

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

 

Claim : Lil Tay + Jason Tian Just Died Suddenly!

Some websites and YouTube channels have recently claimed that social media influencer and rapper Lil Tay, and her older brother, Jason Tian, just died suddenly under mysterious / unknown circumstances.

Outlook India : 14-Year-Old Rapper Lil Tay Dies Along With Elder Brother Jason Tian

Some people have also gone full frenzy about the sudden death of Lil Tay and Jason Tian on social media:

Mario Nawfal : 🚨BREAKING: RAPPER LIL TAY REPORTED DEAD

Online influencer and rapper Lil Tay has passed away at the age of 14, five years after she rose to online fame.

The news of her ‘sudden and tragic’ demise was confirmed by an unnamed family member in a statement shared on Lil Tay’s Instagram account today.

The statement also revealed that her 21-year-old brother, Jason Tian, had also passed away.

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

 

Truth : Lil Tay + Jason Tian Did NOT Die Suddenly!

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

Fact #1 : Lil Tay Death Claim Based On Single Instagram Post

All these claims that Lil Tay and her older brother, Jason Tian, died suddenly are based on a single post on her Instagram account, which was shared on Wednesday, August 9, 2023:

It is with a heavy heart that we share the devastating news of our beloved Claire’s sudden and tragic passing. We have no words to express the unbearable loss and indescribable pain. This outcome was entirely unexpected, and has left us all in shock. Her brother’s passing adds an even more unimaginable depth to our grief.

During this time of immense sorrow, we kindly ask for privacy as we grieve this overwhelming loss, as the circumstances surrounding Claire and her brother’s passing are still under investigation.

Claire will forever remain in our hearts, her absence leaving an irreplaceable void that will be felt by all who knew and loved her.

It did not help that when news agencies tried to confirm her death, her father – Christopher “Chris” Hope refused to confirm either way:

Yeah, you have the right person, but I don’t have any comment right now. I’m not able to give you any comment right now. I’m sorry — I can’t.

But the Los Angeles Police Department stated that it had no record of Claire Hope or Jason Tian dying in LA (where they live):

We have no information on either of these two individuals Claire Hope or Jason Tian being killed or dying in Los Angeles.

If the LA county medical examiners has nothing on either of them either, that would lead me to believe they are not, in fact, dead, or that it did not occur in LA.

Recommended : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #2 : Lil Tay + Jason Tian Are Still Alive!

On Thursday, August 10, 2023, Lil Tay issued a statement to say that she is still alive – a day after the death announcement on her Instagram account went viral.

I want to make it clear that my brother and I are safe and alive, but I’m completely heartbroken, and struggling to even find the right words to say.

It’s been a very traumatizing 24 hours. All day yesterday, I was bombarded with endless heartbreaking and tearful phone calls from loved ones all while trying to sort out this mess.

Fact #3 : Lil Tay’s Instagram Account Was Hacked!

Lil Tay explained that her Instagram account was “compromised by a third party” and used to “spread jarring misinformation and rumors” about her. She thanked Meta for letting her gain access to her Instagram account again.

She did not explain why it took her more than 24 hours to confirm that she was still alive and well. But a Meta spokesperson confirmed that they helped her recover her Instagram account.

Fact #4 : Lil Tay No Longer Goes By Claire Hope

Lil Tay was born as Claire Hope to Angela Tian and Christopher J. Hope on July 29, 2007. She was also known as Claire Eileen Qi Hope.

However, Lil Tay revealed that she no longer goes by her birth name – Claire Hope, which was what the fake death announcement used.

Instead, Lil Tay appears to have dropped the surname of her estranged father, and now goes by the legal name, Tay Tian.

Fact #5 : Lil Tay Is Accused Of Orchestrating Death Hoax

Lil Tay’s former manager – Harry Tsang, who was her last known public representative at the height of her fame in 2018, cast doubts over her statements.

Harry Tsang accused Lil Tay of lying about her Instagram account being hacked, and alleged that she orchestrated the fake statement about her death.

Upon learning about Lil Tay’s assertion of her well-being, I find relief in the fact that she is safe. However, I believe the reported hacking incident may not have occurred.

He pointed out two points of doubt over the validity of Lil Tay’s claims of being hacked:

My rationale for this perspective is twofold: firstly, the restoration of a compromised account on platforms like Meta/Instagram typically does not necessitate a 24-hour timeframe.

Secondly, the actions of Lil Tay’s brother, renowned for his propensity for extreme measures, lead me to hypothesize an alternative motive behind this occurrence.

Harry Tsang then suggested that Lil Tay and/or Jason Tian might have orchestrated this death hoax to rekindle her fame:

Simultaneously, if the underlying motive is indeed to rekindle Lil Tay’s prominence within the public sphere, I contend that such actions demonstrate a certain degree of irresponsibility.

It’s essential to consider the potential repercussions of employing such tactics, particularly given their potential impact on the perceptions and sentiments of the broader audience.

Did Taylor Swift Die Suddenly In Concert Car Crash?!

Did Taylor Swift die suddenly from a tragic car crash, just after leaving her concert?!

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

Claim : Taylor Swift Just Died Suddenly In Car Accident!

A TikTok video which claims that Taylor Swift just died suddenly in a tragic car accident has gone viral. The video has been removed, and unfortunately, I was not able to grab a copy of it before it disappeared.

The viral TikTok video was posted by @taylor.fan17, and shows photos of Taylor Swift performing at her concerts, with a male narrator claiming that the singer died suddenly in a tragic car accident.

The video claimed that Taylor Swift’s car was hit by another car while she was leaving her show in Atlanta, and the unnamed driver was taken into custody, and is now awaiting a court trial for the crime.

Some people have also been sharing a photo of a mural showing that Taylor Swift did indeed die.

Truth : Taylor Swift Did Not Die Suddenly In Car Accident!

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

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Reported Her Death

That viral TikTok video has been circulating for weeks, but some people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported her death.

Taylor Swift is, arguably, one of the world’s most famous and influential singer today. A mega star, with a legion of fans who call themselves Swifties. If she just tripped in public, the paparazzi and celebrity blogs would have reported on the incident and analysed it to death.

If she got into any car accident, it would have been international news, even if she did not suffer so much as a scratch. Yet no legitimate media outlet reported that Taylor Swift died suddenly in a tragic car accident. Not even small-time celebrity blogs reported her death!

Fact #2 : Taylor Swift Is Still Alive + Well!

The viral video claimed that Taylor Swift died on Monday, May 1, 2023 – just after wrapping up her stop in Atlanta, Georgia for The Eras Tour.

Taylor Swift did not die, and is still very much alive and well, as of August 9, 2023. That was when she announced that she is releasing a re-recording – 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on October 27!

Tens of thousands of Swifties also sang with Taylor Swift that day on her last concert at the SoFi Stadium in Southern California.

“Here we are, on the last night of the U.S. leg of the Eras tour, in the eighth month of the year, on the ninth day (of the month),” Swift said to frenzied screams, before art for the upcoming “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” due Oct. 27, flashed on the gigantic screen behind her.

Needless to say, all that would not be possible if Taylor Swift died in car accident on Monday, May 1, 2023…

Recommended : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #3 : Taylor Swift Memorial Mural Is From 2016

You may have seen people posting photos of a Taylor Swift memorial mural as evidence that she truly died.

The mural is real, and is located in Melbourne, Australia. However, it was created by Australian graffiti artist, Lushsux, to mark the “death” of Taylor Swift’s career in March 2016.

At that time, Kanye West released his single, Famous, with the lines:

I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex

Why? I made that bitch famous.

Taylor Swift then got into a spat with Kanye West and his then-wife, Kim Kardashian. That was when Lushsux created the mural, and posted a video of it on Instagram with this caption:

Please pay your respects at Hosier Lane today by laying flowers or lighting a candle in mourning, taken from us too soon sweet princess.

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

Fact #4 : Taylor Swift Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

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

News of singer Taylor Swift’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the August 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the singer best known for hit songs like You Belong with Me or Love Story is alive and well.

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

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 it is 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.

Why Did Johnny Depp Faint + Cancel Budapest Concert?!

Did Johnny Depp faint and cancel his Budapest concert because he was “overexcited” from last night’s party?!

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

 

Claim : Johnny Depp Faint + Cancel Concert From Overexcitation!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that Johnny Depp fainted in his Budapest hotel, and cancelled the Hollywood Vampires concert that day, because of “overexcitation” from last night’s party!

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

The cause of Johnny Depp’s fainting at a Budapest hotel has been found

No Evidence Johnny Depp Fainted + Cancelled Concert From Overexcitation!

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 : Hollywood Vampires Cancelled Concert At Last Minute

First, let me just give you a quick overview of what happened with Johnny Depp and his celebrity band, Hollywood Vampires, in Budapest.

On July 18, Hollywood Vampires announced that it was forced to cancel the concert just hours before it kicked off:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, The Vampires will be canceling tonight’s show in Budapest.

All tickets (General and VIP, including Meet & Greet) will be refunded in full.

We love and appreciate all of the fans who traveled from near and far to see us rise, and we’re truly sorry.

Sincere apologies, The Hollywood Vampires
Johnny, Alice, Joe, Tommy, Glen, Buck & Chris

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!

Recommended : Is Selena Gomez Having An Affair With Zayn Malik?!

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:

Is This The New US Ambassador To Jamaica + His Wife?!

A photo allegedly showing the new US ambassador to Jamaica and his wife at a party has gone viral on social media! Take a look at the viral photo, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-07-31 : Added fact check video, and photo of Joyce Perry

George Njoroge : The new US Ambassador to Jamaica and his ‘wife’. Jamaica is refusing to accredit them as a couple as they don’t recognise gay marriages.

The US in turn is refusing to renew the diplomatic status of Jamaican Ambassador to US and Consulate General in Miami… A diplomatic row is brewing 😅

Recommended : Did EU Torture + Kill Hundreds Of African Refugees?!

 

Truth : This Is Not The US Ambassador To Jamaica + His Wife!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS designed to disparage the LGBT community, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Jamaica Refused To Accredit Spouse Of US Diplomat

First, let me start by pointing out that this fake photo appears to be circulating over claims that the Jamaican government is refusing to accredit the spouse of an incoming US diplomat, because same-sex marriage is not recognised in Jamaica.

The Jamaican media also claimed that the US State Department has retaliated by refusing to extend the stay of some Jamaican diplomats.

Jamaican authorities, including Jamaican Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kamina Johnson Smith, allegedly argued that accrediting the gay spouse of that US diplomat would be in breach of the Jamaican constitution.

However, the Jamaican ambassador to the United States, Audrey Marks, has downplayed those reports, saying that US denials to the extension for serving diplomats are nothing new, and not related to the current diplomatic spat.

Over the past two years, we have requested a few extensions, and some were denied. The fact is that the USA gave two years’ notice of this policy change, and many persons who were or will be affected have been here for well over five years.

Such long-term stays in the US were never the intent of these work visas when they were issued, so this policy is an effort by the USA to return to the diplomatic accreditations’ original intent. As a government, we agree and respect this policy position.

Marks also explained that the US requested to extend diplomatic privileges and immunity to the same-sex spouse on June 20, 2023. Jamaica declined the request on July 5, and contrary to claims, the United States did not repeat their request:

Based on the foregoing, and the timeliness of the response, it is clear that the request by the United States was not ignored and contrary to reports, no ‘second demand’ was made.

Fact #2 : That Was Photo Of Conchita Wurst + Andre Karsai

The viral photo is actually of famous Austrian singer and drag queen, Conchita Wurst, and her business manager and the executive director of her company, Andre Karsai.

Conchita is actually the drag queen persona of Thomas Neuwirth, with a fictional backstory – Conchita was born in the mountains of Colombia, and married to French burlesque dancer Jacques Patriaque (Neuwirth’s actual friend)

He says this Conchita Wurst persona is similar to Beyoncé’s Sasha Fierce alter-ego, and uses it as a way to protect his private life.

Neuwirth is gay but not a trans woman. He uses the he/him pronouns when referring to himself, but uses she/her to describe his Conchita Wurst character.

Conchita Wurst is best known for winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. She also had a cameo in the 2020 movie, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.

Here is an interesting fact about the character’s name. Conchita is a Spanish slang word for vagina, while Wurst is a German slang word for penis. So Conchita Wurst literally means vagina penis!

In 2019, Neuwirth introduced a new mononymous persona called WURST, which would allow for a “more masculine expression”.

Fact #3 : That Photo Was Taken At 2019 Vienna Opera Ball

Fact #4 : No Evidence US Is Closing Jamaica Consulate In Miami

Embassies and consulates are legally considered to be the territory of the country they represent. Therefore, the Jamaica consulate in Miami is legally Jamaican territory.

While the US can order the closure of embassies and consulates, and expel the foreign diplomatic staff, this only happens when there is a serious deterioration of relations.

There is no evidence that the US is planning to order the closure of the Jamaican consulate in Miami.

Fact #5 : US Ambassador To Jamaica Is N. Nick Perry

The US Ambassador to Jamaica is Noah Nickolas Perry, who assumed his office on May 13, 2022, after being confirmed in the US Senate on March 10, 2022.

To be clear – he remains the US Ambassador to Jamaica. Furthermore, he is not in a same-sex marriage – his wife is Joyce Perry, who bore him two children.

Sinead O’Connor : Autopsy To Determine Cause Of Death!

It is unknown HOW or WHEN Sinead O’Connor died suddenly, and her cause of death will be investigated in an autopsy.

Here is what you need to know about the autopsy that will determine Sinead O’Connor’s official cause of death!

 

Sinead O’Connor : Was Vaccine Or Suicide Her Cause Of Death?!

Right after news broke that Sinead O’Connor died unexpectedly at just 56 years old, people are claiming that Sinead O’Connor died from the COVID-19 vaccine, while others pointed out that she most likely died from a suicide.

Carl E. Miller : Another fully vaccinated celebrity SINEAD O’CONNOR does [dies] at 56 years old. Of course the vaccine may not be the cause, but it may be the cause too. At least worth noting that she took several doses of an experimental vaccine. Seems reasonable to point that out.

FreedomRises : BREAKING: Irish Musician Sinéad O’Connor has committed suicide at the age of 56

She was most famous for calling out the Roman Catholic Church’s Abuse

Solar Melt : At least double vaxxed, Irish music legend, Sinead O’Connor dead at 56. I guess nothing compares to the vax.

Sinead O’Connor : Autopsy To Determine Cause Of Death!

For a more details examination of whether Sinead O’Connor died from the COVID-19 vaccine, or committed suicide, please read our article – Did Sinead O’Connor Die Suddenly From Vaccine / Suicide?!

In this article, I will give you the latest updates on how Sinead O’Connor died, and the autopsy that will determine her official cause of death.

Until that autopsy is completed, the truth is – none of us, not the coroner, not even her family, actually knows how Sinead O’Connor died. In fact, we don’t even know when she died! Read on, and you will see what I mean…

Sinead O’Connor Was Found Dead In Her Home

On Wednesday, 26 July 2023, her family announced that Sinead O’Connor died at the age of 56, in a statement to The Irish Times:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad.

Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.

Her family did not announce Sinead O’Connor’s cause of death. Neither has it been reported by any legitimate media outlet at that time. However, more details have since emerged.

We now know that Sinead O’Connor was found unresponsive in her flat in Herne Hill, South London at around 11 PM on Wednesday, 26 July 2023. Police officers were called to her home, and pronounced her dead at the scene.

Police were called at 11:18hrs on Wednesday, 26 July to reports of an unresponsive woman at a residential address in the SE24 area. Officers attended. A 56-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her Death Is Not Being Treated As Suspicious

According to the police statement, it does not appear that she was found by her family, who were informed after the fact. The Metropolitan Police later said that her death was “not being treated as suspicious“.

Next of kin have been notified. The death is not being treated as suspicious. A file will be prepared for the Coroner.

Her Date Of Death Is Unknown

Even though Sinead O’Connor was discovered “unresponsive” and pronounced dead on 26 July 2023, she may have died much earlier.

On Friday, 28 July 2023, the coroner said that the “date of death is unknown“, and UK authorities are trying to establish a timeline leading to the discovery of her body.

A spokesperson for the London Inner South Coroner’s Court said that the Metropolitan Police referred the case to the coroner, and that the “Date of death is unknown“.

That suggests that Sinead O’Connor had likely for some time before her body was discovered on the night of July 26, 2023.

Coroner Order An Autopsy For Sinead O’Connor

The London Inner South Coroner’s Court said that her cause of death has not been determined, and that an autopsy will be conducted on Sinead O’Connor to determine her official cause of death.

No medical cause of death was given. The coroner therefore directed an autopsy to be conducted. The results of this may not [be] available for several weeks.

In other words – NO ONE, not even the coroner or Sinead O’Connor’s family, knows how Sinead O’Connor died. So anyone who claims that she died from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

An Inquest To Be Determined Later

The London Inner South Coroner’s Court also said that the need for an inquest will be determined after the autopsy results are known, and submissions have been heard from the family.

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.

Elton John Boycotts US Over Gay Rights?!

Did Elton John just boycott the US over gay rights, while forgetting about his own past?!

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

 

Claim : Elton John Boycotts US Over Gay Rights!

People are sharing an OutKick article, claiming that Elton John has just boycotted the US over gay rights, while forgetting about his past! Here is an excerpt from that OutKick article:

Elton John Boycotts U.S. Over Gay Rights, Forgets Own Past

John’s road retirement may not last, but he’s certain he won’t play as much as a residency in the States moving forward. Why? He cites the new, “disgraceful” hate aimed at the LGBTQ+ community coursing through America’s veins.

Recommended : Did Elton John Ban US Over Anti-Grooming Laws?!

 

Truth : Elton John Did Not Boycott US Over Gay Rights!

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

Fact #1 : Elton John Does Not Want Another US Residency

Let me just start by pointing out that Elton John never said that he will no longer perform in the United States, after his farewell tour ends.

In his interview with Radio Times, what Elton John said was that he still plans to continue performing after his three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour ends. He was interested in a residency – playing at a single venue, but not in the United States of America.

I said when I announced the farewell tour that maybe I would do a residency like Kate Bush did at Hammersmith [in 2014]. But not in America. I will not do it in America.

But that’s in the long term. I don’t want to think about the stage – I’ve been on it since I was 17.

In other words, Elton John does not intend to go back for a third Las Vegas residency. As his husband and manager, David Furnish explained:

Will Elton return as a live performer? I hope so! It’s in his blood…

I know for a fact he will not be touring in any capacity. What you’re going to see is the possibility of a special one-off or a small residency in one venue for a limited period of time.

I don’t think it will be Las Vegas. Elton feels he’s done the best he can in Las Vegas. He mounted two hugely successful residencies there.

When you’re an artist and something’s in your blood, you don’t want to shut the door completely.

Fact #2 : Elton John Dislikes Violence + Discrimination In America

Elton John has been outspoken about what he dislikes about America – violence and discriminatory laws. However, he did not say he was boycotting the US.

It is peculiar that the OutKick article should suggest that Elton John was “clearly conflating laws meant to protect children from life-altering surgery“, when Elton himself was explicit about what he disliked about that particular discriminatory Florida law.

It’s all going pear-shaped in America. There’s violence, [discriminatory] laws enacted in Florida, which are disgraceful. There’s a law now that, if you visit a doctor in Florida, they can refuse to treat you if you’re gay, which I find just unbelievable.

We seem to be going backwards. And that spreads. It’s like a virus that the LGBTQ+ movement is suffering.

It seems clear to me that Elton was very clear about what he disliked about that particular Florida law!

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

Fact #3 : HB 1557 Is Don’t Say Gay Bill

The OutKick article then refers to House Bill 1557 (HB 1557 : Parental Rights in Education), which regulates public schools in Florida.

This is the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which prohibits public schools from discussing or teaching students about sexual orientation or gender identity, from kindergarten up to grade three.

Presumably, Florida lawmakers believe that teaching children about gender identity and sexual orientation is how children are groomed into accepting sexual abuse. As Christina Pushaw – the press secretary of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, explained:

The bill that liberals inaccurately call “Don’t Say Gay” would be more accurately described as an Anti-Grooming Bill.

If you’re against the Anti-Grooming Bill, you are probably a groomer or at least you don’t denounce the grooming of 4-8 year old children.

Fact #4 : Elton John Referred To SB 1580, Not HB 1557

Elton John never mentioned any Florida law concerning children, education, or public schools in his interview with Radio Times.

He only referred to a completely different Florida law – SB 1580 : Protections of Medical Conscience Bill, which allows healthcare providers and insurers to deny patient care based on religious, moral or ethical beliefs.

This SB 1580 law has absolutely nothing to do with children or their education, which is covered by the completely different HB 1557 law (see above).

So why did OutKick bring up HB 1557 (the so-called Don’t Say Gay Bill), which Elton John never mentioned in his interview? Misunderstanding? Misdirection? Misinterpretation? Misinformation?

Recommended : Was Madonna Revived From Death By Narcan Injection?!

Fact #5 : Elton John Rarely Performs In Anti-LGBT Countries

While Elton John has been outspoken about gay rights, he has not stopped performing in countries with laws that can be used to harass or persecute gay people. But they have been extremely rare in number – United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, and Russia.

What OutKick may not realise is that those countries do not matter financially to Elton John, who performs in many more concerts in LGBT-friendly countries, and can easily forego those countries. It seems more likely that Elton John only performed in those countries because he was allowed to.

Think on that – those anti-LGBT countries allowed Elton John – an openly gay performer – to sing and perform for his fans. That is not evidence of his hypocrisy. That shows the power of his music.

Fact #6 : Concerts Are Different From Residencies

Finally, I should point out that performing at one-off concerts in countries with restrictive, anti-LGBT laws is quite different from actually staying in those countries.

It’s one thing to try and change minds by performing in those countries for a show or two, it’s quite another thing to live in such countries.

So it isn’t hypocrisy if Elton John has no qualms performing in countries with restrictive, anti-LGBT laws, but chooses not to live for months or years in the US because he dislikes its violence and laws.

It’s no different from how staunchly conservative anti-LGBT activists have no problem holidaying in countries with progressive pro-LGBT laws.

Was Madonna Revived From Death By Narcan Injection?!

Was Madonna really revived from her death by a Narcan (naloxone) injection?!

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

 

Claim : Madonna Was Revived From Death By Narcan Injection!

People are sharing a RadarOnline article which claims that Madonna was revived from death by a Narcan (naloxone) injection!

Madonna Was Revived by Narcan Injection: Terrifying New Details Reveal Queen of Pop ‘Had to Be Brought Back From The Dead’

Madonna’s brush with death was far worse than anyone knows, RadarOnline.com has exclusively been told.

When the Queen of Pop was found unresponsive on June 24, those who discovered her lifeless body were forced to administer a NARCAN injection, sources said.

NARCAN is an emergency medical treatment commonly used to reverse the life-threatening effects of a suspected overdose. But it is also used to reverse acute septic shock in patients — a condition Madonna is said to have suffered.

The injection, commonly held in medical treatment kits of the rich and famous, is considered useful to increase blood pressure in the management of septic shock, a life-threatening condition that happens when blood pressure drops to a dangerously low level.

There is nothing at all to suggest the hitmaker needed NARCAN for the ill effects of any drug use.

A spokesperson for Madonna had no comment.

No Evidence Madonna Was Revived From Death By Narcan Injection!

On Saturday, June 24, 2023, Madonna was found unconscious and unresponsive in New York City, and rushed to a hospital ICU, where she was diagnosed with a serious bacterial infection.

Her condition was so severe, she had to be intubated, and her family feared they would “lose her”. That was why they kept quiet about her condition, until the worst was over.

Amazingly, she was busy recording music with Katy Perry in a studio, just hours before she collapsed at home.

After being treated in the ICU for several days, Madonna was discharged on Wednesday night, June 28, and taken to her New York City apartment to recover.

What we don’t know was the circumstances in which Madonna was found, only that she was unconscious and unresponsive. No one has yet been able to corroborate RadarOnline’s claim that Madonna was revived using a Narcan injection. Heck, we don’t even know if Madonna was revived at her home as claimed, or at the hospital.

What we do know is Narcan / naloxone is used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, not treat acute septic shock.

It is also unlikely for first responders to think of acute septic shock when they see an unconscious and unresponsive person. Chances are – whoever injected Madonna with naloxone probably did so out of the assumption that she may have overdosed on opioids – a common problem in the United States.

Even if Madonna was injected with Narcan, it is unlikely to have revived her from the dead as claimed. That is only possible if she suffered from an opioid overdose. There is no evidence Madonna overdosed from opioids, but we know that she was hospitalised for a serious bacterial infection.

Recommended : Is Madonna Fighting For Her Life From Vaccine Injury?!

To be clear, the FDA allows Narcan to be administered for septic shock as an “adjunctive use” (PDF download), but warns that it should be used “with caution”:

NARCAN is indicated for the complete or partial reversal of opioid depression, including respiratory depression, induced by natural and synthetic opioids, including propoxyphene, methadone and certain mixed agonist-antagonist analgesics: nalbuphine, pentazocine, butorphanol, and cyclazocine. NARCAN is also indicated for diagnosis of suspected or known acute opioid overdosage. NARCAN may be useful as an adjunctive agent to increase blood pressure in the management of septic shock

Pfizer, one of the many naloxone manufacturers, states that while naloxone has been shown to produce a rise in blood pressure in some cases of septic shock, it has also been associated with adverse effects like nausea, vomiting, hypotension, cardiac arrhythmias and seizures.

Adjunctive Use in Septic Shock

Naloxone has been shown in some cases of septic shock to produce a rise in blood pressure that may last up to several hours; however this pressor response has not been demonstrated to improve patient survival. In some studies, treatment with naloxone in the setting of septic shock has been associated with adverse effects, including agitation, nausea and vomiting, pulmonary edema, hypotension, cardiac arrhythmias, and seizures. The decision to use naloxone in septic shock should be exercised with caution, particularly in patients who may have underlying pain or have previously received opioid therapy and may have developed opioid tolerance.

Therefore, it would not have been likely for trained first responders to administer Narcan to Madonna if they suspected she had septic shock. They would have quickly stabilised her, and rushed her to the hospital.

That scenario certainly remains a possibility – we still do NOT have any confirmation that anyone actually injected Madonna with naloxone!

At the end of the day, the RadarOnline article is nothing more than celebrity rumour grist to generate some controversy for the page views. Despite insinuations by various blogs and media covering the same story, there is no evidence Madonna collapsed from an opioid overdose, or a COVID-19 vaccine injury.

Nothing has changed with the original story – Madonna suffered from a bad bacterial infection, and had to be hospitalised in the ICU for several days.

Truth : Madonna Did Not Die Suddenly In A Hospital!

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

Fact #1 : Madonna Was Hospitalised For Bacterial Infection

First, let me give you a quick summary of Madonna’s recent health problems.

On Saturday, June 24, 2023, Madonna was found unconscious and unresponsive in New York City, and rushed to a hospital ICU, where she was diagnosed with a serious bacterial infection.

Her condition was so severe, she had to be intubated, and her family feared they would “lose her”. That was why they kept quiet about her condition, until the worst was over.

She certainly was NOT hospitalised for any COVID-19 vaccine injury.

Fact #2 : Madonna Left The Hospital Alive

On Wednesday night, June 28, Madonna was discharged from the hospital and taken to her New York City apartment using a private ambulance.

While she has been discharged from the hospital, and is recovering at home, Madonna is still bedridden and vomiting from the bacterial infection, according to insiders who spoke to TMZ:

Madonna’s been vomiting uncontrollably since being discharged from the hospital, and the infection is still wreaking havoc on her body.

She is still very much alive, as of 1 July 2023. However, she is still too sick to get out of bed.

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

Fact #3 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported Her Death

These social media comments are coming in fast and furious even though no legitimate media has reported Madonna’s death. Even TMZ, which has access to people close to Madonna, did not report that she has died.

If Madonna really died from her bacterial infection, or any other cause of death, the worldwide media would have reported on it, and so would the many celebrity blogs out there.

Yet, not a single legitimate media outlet reported that Madonna died suddenly in a hospital from any cause. That’s because it never happened. Madonna is still alive, period.

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

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

News of singer Madonna’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the June 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 Music, Vogue or Like a Virgin and best known for her role in Evita is alive and well.

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

She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Did RM Reject Offer To Disband BTS + Go Solo?!

Did RM reject an offer by HYBE to disband BTS and go solo, because the group was losing money?!

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

 

Claim : RM Rejected Offer To Disband BTS + Go Solo!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that RM (Kim Nam-joon) once rejected an offer by HYBE to disband BTS and go solo, because the group was losing money!

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

The decision that BTS’ RM made about a possible disbandment of the group

RM, the leading member of South Korean Kpop group BTS, had a tense moment when one of HYBE‘s executives made him a proposal that would suppose to the separation from the group. However, the idol acted with companionship and above all, with deep intelligence.

The impact that BTS has left on the South Korean Kpop industry is truly incalculable. However, their beginnings in 2013 were not easy at all, as HYBE, the company in charge of the septet that was previously called Big Hit, was not big enough to afford all the expenses.

Recommended : Did Park Jimin Admit Some BTS Members Are Married?!

 

Truth : RM Rejected Prank Offer To Disband BTS + Go Solo!

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

Fact #1 : This Is A Very Old Story

Music Mundial suggested that HYBE (formerly Big Hit Entertainment) offered RM the opportunity to disband BTS and go solo in 2013. The truth is – this actually happened in 2014.

Whether it’s 2013 or 2014, it’s a very old story from 9-10 years ago! Why did Music Mundial bring this up today? After all, there was no recent news on BTS disbanding, or RM considering a solo career.

Was it a very slow day at Music Mundial, and they all had BS writer’s block? Or maybe they used generative AI to invent something viral about BTS, and this came up?

Fact #2 : HYBE Only Existed In March 2021

It is funny that Music Mundial should claim that HYBE Corporation offered RM to disband BTS, so he can go solo in 2013, when HYBE only existed some 7-8 years later!

Back in 2013, HYBE did not even exist. It was known from its founding on February 1, 2005 as Big Hit Entertainment Co., Ltd. Only in March 2021, did Big Hit Entertainment rebrand itself as the HYBE Corporation.

If RM was offered to disband BTS, it would have been made by Big Hit Entertainment, not HYBE. If Music Mundial cannot even get this basic fact right…

Fact #3 : It Was Just A Prank By Bang PD

This HYBE offer to disband BTS and have RM go solo was actually a prank that Bang Si-hyuk (also known as Bang PD) – the founder of HYBE / Big Hit Entertainment, played on RM.

During a special on Mnet’s 4 Things Show in 2014, Bang PD called RM into his office to criticise his leadership of BTS. Suga and J-Hope were in the room to help Bang PD with his prank, while the other BTS members were in another room, watching through hidden cameras.

As Bang PD criticising his leadership, RM is seen gritting his teeth in frustration. In the end, Bang PD asked him, “If you’re going to be like this, why don’t you just go solo?

RM just kept quiet, so after some time, Bang PD asked again, “Will you be okay with going solo?” RM then replied, “Yes“.

Bang PD prodded him further, “You’re not wanting to go solo, are you?” to which RM said, “No“.

This is where the climax came – Bang PD asked, “Let me ask you again, solo or Bangtan Boys?” and RM instantly responded, “Bangtan Boys“.

That was when Bang PD asked RM to “look at me, kid“, before smiling and telling him that he was on a hidden camera show!

Fact #4 : Bang PD Had Confidence In BTS

The suggestion that Bang PD and HYBE (Big Hit Entertainment at that time) was so disappointed in BTS in 2013 that it offered to disband the band is nonsensical.

HYBE not only invested a lot of time and money in training all seven BTS members, Bang PD himself had confidence in them. He revealed that in his May 2016 letter to BTS:

To Jin, Suga, Rap Monster, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook…

When I first met you, all of you were so young. I met you all at different times, but all of you seemed to be scared about something. Like you didn’t know how to look at me, you couldn’t look at me in the eye well at all. I feel that I really pushed you boys a lot. I had a lot of greed and put you under my standard. I gave you a hard time asking why you couldn’t believe yourself and why you weren’t trying to look far into the future. I’m sure all of you remember losing sleep over this because the place I pointed was far and dark. Even so, you always somehow found that path. You always shot up higher and further up than the place that I pointed to.

As I was walking with you, I finally realized it. Your anxiety was another face of desperation. That’s what pushed you to practice until late at night, to go against everything, going over the limits on your own. But now I step back, I can see you getting better and better. Because there’s no reason for me to raise my finger and point towards a place. With your own strengths you are finding your own paths. And you are passing the places that I didn’t dare looking towards.

But still thank you. I won’t say that I’m proud of you just yet, because I am a very greedy person. Let’s hold onto that until the day you become the best group in the world…

On June 12, a year, no, 3 years later. On that day, I’ll look each of you in the eye and tell you personally from my lips…that I’m thankful that you stayed by me and for bringing me here and allowing me to dream.

I write this on May, 2016, a month before your 3rd Anniversary.

Bang Si Hyuk

Fact #5 : This Is Just Music Mundial Fake News

As usual, Music Mundial offered ZERO evidence to back up its claim that Big Hit Entertainment / HYBE once seriously offered to disband BTS so RM can have a solo career.

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:

Is Madonna Fighting For Her Life From Vaccine Injury?!

Was Madonna just rushed to the ICU after collapsing from a COVID-19 vaccine injury?!

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

 

Claim : Madonna Is Fighting For Her Life From Vaccine Injury!

Right after news broke that Madonna was rushed to the ICU after being found unconscious in New York, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that legendary singer was injured by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Dom Lucre : Please pray for Madonna while she recovers in the ICU room after being found unresponsive for what some reports are saying appears to be vaccine related which would be unfortunate if true since Madonna was one of the loudest supporters of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Madonna Hospitalized Found Unconscious In The USA

Madonna confirms that she took both shots of the Moderna vaccine, during the behind the scenes video of the Madame X Tour record mix.

Died Suddenly : Madonna has been rushed to a New York City hospital after being found unresponsive.

The pop icon, 64, was discovered at a residence on Saturday before being admitted to the ICU where she was intubated overnight.

Madonna donated $1.1 Million dollars to Covid Vaccine research, and made claims that the vaccine should be “mandatory like gun control” because it “saves lives”

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

 

Truth : Madonna Is Not Fighting For Her Life From Vaccine Injury!

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-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Madonna Was Found Unconscious

Madonna (born Madonna Louise Ciccone on August 16, 1958) was found unconscious and unresponsive in New York City on Saturday, June 24, 2023.

She was rushed to a hospital ICU, where she was intubated. Her condition was so severe, her family feared they would “lose her”. A relative said:

For the past couple of days, no one really knew which direction this was going to turn, and her family was preparing for the worst.

That is why it was kept a secret since Saturday. Everyone believed that we may lose her and that has been the reality of the situation.

Fact #2 : Madonna Suffered From A Bacterial Infection

On Wednesday, June 28, her long-time manager, Guy Oseary revealed on Instagram that Madonna was in the ICU for a serious bacterial infection, and that they are postponing all commitments including her Celebration Tour.

On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several-day stay in the ICU.

According to insiders, Madonna had suffering from a low-grade fever for a month before she collapsed and had to be hospitalised. Sources familiar with the situation told TMZ that Madonna ignored her symptoms and never saw a doctor because she was “laser focused” on rehearsing for her upcoming tour.

To be clear – Madonna did not suffer from COVID-19, or a COVID-19 vaccine injury. She was hospitalised for a serious bacterial infection.

Fact #3 : Madonna Is Out Of ICU + Recovering

A unnamed source confirmed that Madonna is already out of the ICU and recovering from her bacterial infection. Her manager, Oseary, confirmed that in his post, also saying that “a full recovery is expected“.

Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.

Fact #4 : Madonna Had Been Pushing Herself Hard

Madonna had reportedly been pushing herself hard to prepare for her Celebration Tour, which was scheduled to launch in Vancouver on July 15, and run until January 2024.

Her family believe that this health scare was a wake-up call for Madonna who earlier believed “she is invincible” and had been “wearing herself thin over the past couple of months” to prepare for her upcoming Celebration Tour.

While Madonna may be out of the woods, she is now taking time to recover from her health scare. Consequently, her manager, Guy Oseary, announced that Madonna has postponed her Celebration Tour:

At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.

Fact #5 : Madonna Is Possibly Fully-Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Madonna is likely fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, but her record on vaccines have been somewhat controversial.

On 3 April 2020, Madonna shared that she donated $1 million to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help create a COVID-19 vaccine.

However, Madonna spread COVID-19 misinformation on her Instagram account in July 2020, sharing a video of Dr. Stella Immanuel, who falsely claimed that social distancing and face masks were ineffective, and made unsubstantiated claims that hydroxychloroquine was a cure for COVID-19. She called Immanuel her “hero” at that time.

A video posted on May 6, 2021, shows Madonna saying that she received two doses of the Moderna mRNA vaccine for COVID-19. The video appears to be edited, and I can find no source for the original video to date. However, because it was posted more than two years ago, I believe it is likely to be accurate.

Even so, I would like to caution everyone that this is the only “evidence” for Madonna’s COVID-19 vaccination status, and it is still unverified or confirmed by other means or sources.

Recommended : Did US FDA Just Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines?!

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Madonna was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she suffered from a COVID-19 vaccine injury, as 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.

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 #7 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Deaths / Injuries Often Proven False

Madonna joins a long list of people falsely accused of being injured or killed by the COVID-19 vaccine.

The vast majority of claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false. 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 Big Pokey Die Suddenly On Stage From Vaccine?!

Did Big Pokey die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine, while rapping on stage at a Juneteenth show?!

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

Updated @ 2023-06-26 : Added his preliminary autopsy results

Claim : Big Pokey Died Suddenly On Stage From Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Big Pokey died suddenly while rapping on stage, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 48 year-old Houston rapper was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Concerned Citizen : Dear Pro Covid Vaxers, Do you seriously not want to know what the fuck is going on?

Another horribly saddening case of ‘died suddenly’ to somebody performing – this time Big Pokey aka Milton Powell. RIP.

There are THREE other stories like this – just from today. These continued sudden deaths are not coincidences. Rather than RISK finding out, it COULD BE the vaccine you would rather play PRETEND & ignore this is even happening.

You were ABSOLUTELY PETRIFIED during Covid – now MORE people are dying each week excessively & you prefer to PRETEND they’re not. Absolutely insane – wake up please.

RIP Big Pokey. Looks like maybe another victim of the mRNA Vaccines. #mRNA #Vaccines #Pfizer #Moderna #BillGates

No Evidence Big Pokey Died Suddenly From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all sudden 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 : Big Pokey Collapsed While Rapping On Stage

Big Pokey (born Milton Powell on November 29, 1974) was an American rapper from Houston, Texas; and one of the original members of the Screwed Up Click. He released an album called Hardest Pit in the Litter in 1999, before acting in the 2001 film, Soldiers United for Cash, and then Dirty Third 2: Home Sweet Home.

On Saturday, June 17, 2023, Big Pokey was performing at a Beaumont bar for Juneteenth, when he appeared to be breathless before suddenly collapsing and falling backwards onto the stage.

Big Pokey was rushed to the St. Elizabeth hospital, where he died overnight on Sunday, June 18. His death was first announced on Instagram the same day by fellow Houston rapper Bun B:

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our beloved Milton “Big Pokey” Powell. Big Pokey passed away on June 18, 2023. He was well loved by his family, his friends, and his loyal fans. In the coming days, we will release information about his celebration of life and how the public can pay their respects. We ask that you respect his family and their privacy during this difficult time. Big Pokey will forever be “The Hardest Pit in The Litter”!

Fact #2 : Big Pokey Was 48 Years Old When He Died

It is odd that many people are claiming on social media that Big Pokey was 45 years old when he died.

The truth is Big Pokey / Milton Powell was born on November 29, 1974, and was 48 years old when he died.

This may not sound important – 45 years old vs. 48 years old – but it goes to show that these people don’t have a high regard for the truth, or simply don’t bother to verify anything they post.

Fact #3 : Big Pokey’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

It is odd that so many people who have never heard of Big Pokey before his death are now claiming on social media that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

What’s the evidence? They certainly provided zero evidence to back up their claims. Heck, we don’t even know anything about Big Pokey’s health, and whether he had any medical condition!

The truth is – we do not know yet how Big Pokey died. No official cause of death has been released, because his family is still waiting for the results of an autopsy that has been conducted on Big Pokey.

On June 20, the preliminary autopsy was inconclusive, as there was no “pathological” cause for his death. As such, Justice of the Peace Tom Gillam III ordered a full toxicology panel to find out what killed Big Pokey.

Until the final autopsy results are publicly revealed by the coroner, and/or his family, anyone who claims that Big Pokey died from this or that cause of death is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Big Pokey Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Big Pokey / Milton Powell has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

In fact, 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.

Some people pointed out that Big Pokey once posted a photo of himself wearing a face mask as “evidence” that he must have been vaccinated because he was so “compliant”.

Well, Big Pokey did post one short video clip (not photo) of himself wearing a face mask on June 14, 2021, However, he is not seen wearing a face mask in any of the other photos or videos in his official Instagram account. So no, Big Pokey wasn’t “compliant” as they claim.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Big Pokey / Milton Powell suffered a COVID-19 vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

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

Even if Big Pokey was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have been fully-vaccinated more than two years ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 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 Elton John Ban US Over Anti-Grooming Laws?!

Did Elton John stop performing in the United States due to its anti-grooming laws?!

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

 

Claim : Elton John Bans US Over Anti-Grooming Laws!

People are sharing an Epoch Times article, as evidence that Elton John singled out anti-grooming laws as the reason why he will no longer perform in the United States.

Dr. Anastasia Maria Loupis : Elton John Singles Out Anti-Grooming Laws as Why He’s Done Performing in the US. Lol. Bye.

Laurence Fox : Elton John Singles Out Anti-Grooming Laws as Why He’s Done Performing in the US.

If he walks like a groomer, talks like a groomer, adopts two boys and parades them around with husband and lover-s in tow, he is a… #TinyGroomer

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

 

Truth : Elton John Did Not Ban US Over Anti-Grooming Laws!

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

Fact #1 : Elton John Does Not Want Another US Residency

Let me just start by pointing out that Elton John never said that he will no longer perform in the United States, after his farewell tour ends.

In his interview with Radio Times, what Elton John said was that he still plans to continue performing after his three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour ends. He was interested in a residency – playing at a single venue, but not in the United States of America.

I said when I announced the farewell tour that maybe I would do a residency like Kate Bush did at Hammersmith [in 2014]. But not in America. I will not do it in America.

But that’s in the long term. I don’t want to think about the stage – I’ve been on it since I was 17.

In other words, Elton John does not intend to go back for a third Las Vegas residency. As his husband and manager, David Furnish explained:

Will Elton return as a live performer? I hope so! It’s in his blood…

I know for a fact he will not be touring in any capacity. What you’re going to see is the possibility of a special one-off or a small residency in one venue for a limited period of time.

I don’t think it will be Las Vegas. Elton feels he’s done the best he can in Las Vegas. He mounted two hugely successful residencies there.

When you’re an artist and something’s in your blood, you don’t want to shut the door completely.

Fact #2 : Elton John Dislikes Violence + Discrimination In America

Elton John has been outspoken about what he dislikes about America – violence and discriminatory laws. However, he has never been against any anti-grooming law, as claimed.

It is odd that the Epoch Times article cut off part of Elton John’s quote, where the 76 year-old singer pointed out the discriminatory law in Florida where a doctor can refuse to treat a gay patient.

Here was what Elton John said in full, with the part that was cut out in the Epoch Times article in bold:

It’s all going pear-shaped in America. There’s violence, [discriminatory] laws enacted in Florida, which are disgraceful. There’s a law now that, if you visit a doctor in Florida, they can refuse to treat you if you’re gay, which I find just unbelievable.

We seem to be going backwards. And that spreads. It’s like a virus that the LGBTQ+ movement is suffering.

It’s amazing how the narrative changes when such a large part of what Elton John said was cut out. Perhaps that was precisely why it was cut out…

Fact #3 : HB 1557 Is The Anti-Grooming Bill

The Epoch Times article then talks about House Bill 1557 (HB 1557 : Parental Rights in Education), which regulates public schools in Florida.

This is the so-called “Anti-Grooming Bill“, which prohibits public schools from discussing or teaching students about sexual orientation or gender identity, from kindergarten up to grade three.

Presumably, Florida lawmakers believe that teaching children about gender identity and sexual orientation is how children are groomed into accepting sexual abuse. As Christina Pushaw – the press secretary of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, explained:

The bill that liberals inaccurately call “Don’t Say Gay” would be more accurately described as an Anti-Grooming Bill.

If you’re against the Anti-Grooming Bill, you are probably a groomer or at least you don’t denounce the grooming of 4-8 year old children.

Fact #4 : Elton John Referred To SB 1580, Not HB 1557

Elton John never mentioned any Florida law concerning children, education, or public schools in his interview with Radio Times.

He only referred to a completely different Florida law – SB 1580 : Protections of Medical Conscience Bill, which allows healthcare providers and insurers to deny patient care based on religious, moral or ethical beliefs.

This SB 1580 law has absolutely nothing to do with children or their education, which is covered by the completely different HB 1557 law (see above).

So why did The Epoch Times bring up HB 1557 (the so-called Anti-Grooming Bill), which Elton John never mentioned in his interview? Misunderstanding? Misdirection? Misinterpretation? Misinformation?

But if Elton John did not bring up HB 1557, then how can anyone claim that he singled out “anti-grooming laws” as the reason why he will no longer perform in the US?

Fact #5 : Elton John Wanted To Spend More Time With His Family

Even more oddly, The Epoch Times article ended by pointing out that Elton John does not want to do a residency in the United States because he wanted to spend more time with his husband and children in Britain!

This completely contradicts the same article’s earlier claim that Elton John is refusing to perform in the US because of its “anti-grooming laws”! It is as if the article was written by two different people, or an AI chatbot!

In any case, the last sentence in The Epoch Time article completely refutes the premise of its title and earlier claim:

According to representatives for John, his reason for that is the same one behind his decision to stop touring—that he wants to spend more time with his husband and children in Britain.

If you are into soccer, this is what is known as an “own goal”…

Fact #6 : This Is Just Epoch Times Misinformation

The Epoch Times, which is affiliated with the Falun Gong religious movement, is notorious for pushing out conspiracy theories and misinformation. Here are just some of their “work” that I fact checked:

Fact #7 : The Epoch Times Appears To Be Promoting It

Interestingly, the Urchin Tracking Module (UTM) parameters at the end of some of these links suggest that The Epoch Times may be promoting the article through certain partners. For example:

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?

Is Selena Gomez Having An Affair With Zayn Malik?!

Is Selena Gomez having an affair with Zayn Malik?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Selena Gomez Is Having An Affair With Zayn Malik!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that Zayn Malik is having an affair with Selena Gomez!

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

Zayn Malik is reportedly having an affair with Selena Gomez

Recommended : Is Prince William Violently Abusing Kate Middleton?!

 

Truth : Selena Gomez Is Not Having An Affair With Zayn Malik!

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 : Both Selena Gomez + Zayn Malik Are Not Married

By definition, having an affair would mean that one or both parties are married, or have an informal commitment to another person (girlfriend / boyfriend / fiancee, etc.

Since neither Selena Gomez, nor Zayn Malik, are married or involved with anyone else, they cannot possibly be having “an affair”. It is likely that the insinuation of “an affair” was used to add drama, and drive traffic.

Fact #2 : Romance Speculation Based On A Single Date

The recent Selena Gomez – Zayn Malik romance claim was based on a single date at a New York City restaurant.

First piece of evidence was a TikTok video by Klarissa Garcia (@klarissa.mpeg), in which she claimed that her friend – a restaurant hostess, witnessed the two celebrities kissing on 25 March 2023.

Tell me how Selena Gomez and Zayn just walked hand in hand making out and I seated them.

Entertainment Tonight also quoted an eyewitness (could be the same person), who said:

Most restaurant staff and restaurant goers didn’t notice them. It seemed like they were comfortable together and it was clear that it was a date.

Fact #3 : Selena Gomez Said She Was Single

While there may be evidence that Selena Gomez went out once with Zayn Malik, it happened months ago.

Approximately eleven days before Music Mundial posted its article claiming an affair between Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik, she declared that she was still SINGLE.

On Thursday, 8 June 2023, Selena Gomez posted a TikTok video, in which she shouted at some soccer players playing on a football field:

I’m single! I’m just a little high maintenance but I love you all so much!

She captioned the video – “The struggle man lol” because she could not catch the attention of the men playing on the field.

It is odd that Music Mundial would claim eleven days later that Selena Gomez was having “an affair” with Zayn Malik when she already stated that she was still “single”.

Fact #4 : Zayn Malik Posted A Somber Selfie

Approximately two days before Music Mundial posted its article claiming an affair between Selena Gomez and Zayn Malik, Zayn posted a selfie of himself looking somber.

Zayn did not caption the photo, but fans of both celebrities believe that it was because Selena Gomez said that she was still single. Speculation is that he was acknowledging that they were no longer dating.

That seems to be confirmed after he posted two photos (here and here) of himself enjoying a night out with two girls on Tuesday, June 20, 2023.

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 recently:

Fact #1 : Lady Gaga Was Upfront About Pfizer Partnership

Lady Gaga (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986) recently posted a photo from the Chromatica Ball Tour last year, with a prominent Nurtec ODT (rimegepant) logo at the top right corner.

The June 13 Instagram carousel post included her personal testimony on Nurtec’s efficacy, followed by official Pfizer safety information on its Nurtec migraine drug:

Ever since childhood, I’ve dealt with migraine pain. When I tried Nurtec® ODT (rimegepant) 75 mg for the first time, I’ll never forget wishing I had found it sooner. That’s why I’m proud to partner with Nurtec ODT. 💜 We’re in this together. If you’re ready to speak to a doctor, ask about Nurtec ODT today. #MHAM

Lady Gaga, or her team, clearly labelled the Instagram post as a “[p]aid partnership with nurtecodt“, with the hashtags #pfizersponsored #nurtecodtpartner and #ad.

Fact #2 : Product Information + Disclaimers Are Necessary

Under her personal post, she included the official Pfizer product information and disclaimers:

Individual results may vary. Prescription only.

Nurtec ODT is for the acute treatment of migraine and the preventive treatment of episodic migraine in adults. Select Safety Information: Do not take if allergic to Nurtec ODT. Allergic reactions can occur, even days after using. Allergic reactions include trouble breathing, rash, and swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, or throat. Most common side effects were nausea (2.7%) and indigestion/stomach pain (2.4%). See full Approved Uses and Important Safety Information included in the image carousel.

While some people are criticising Lady Gaga for posting that information, and two Nurtec slides in the Instagram carousel post, they are necessary for a sponsored post for a drug.

It is important for sponsored posts promoting any kind of medication to include basic product and safety information, so people understand the proper use cases and potential side effects.

You should be more worried about social media posts on drugs that lack such product and safety information!

Fact #3 : 300K Fans = 0.5% Of Her Followers!

I should point out that Lady Gaga had over 55.25 million followers on Instagram, on the day she posted the Pfizer Nurtec advertisement.

Even if Lady Gaga actually lost 300,000 followers on her Instagram account, it would only represent 0.54% of her total number of followers!

That would be a noteworthy dip no doubt, but it would not matter, because it also means that over 99.4% of her fans are not concerned enough unfollow her!

Fact #4 : Lady Gaga Actually Gained 33.9K Fans!

While people are claiming that Lady Gaga lost tens of thousands… or 300,000 fans / followers on her Instagram account, they offered zero evidence to back up those claims.

Instead of losing 300,000 fans, Lady Gaga actually gained 33.9K new fans in the 6 days following her Instagram post promoting the Pfizer Nurtec migraine drug.

As you can see from these stats of her Instagram account, Lady Gaga has consistently brought in thousands of additional followers every single day since that she posted the Nurtec advertisement.

Sure, some of her fans are calling her a sellout. But it is unknown if these unhappy Little Monsters actually unfollowed her because of that post. If she lost any fans over that post, they do not appear to be numerous enough to cause her total follower count to drop!

Fact #5 : Pfizer Was Upfront About Lady Gaga Partnership

Pfizer is no stranger to criticism, partly due to its chequered history, and partly because it’s a popular bogeyman for conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists.

Hence, Pfizer was similarly upfront about its partnership with Lady Gaga in promoting Nurtec. Of course, Pfizer labelled it as its effort to raise awareness about migraine:

June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, and in keeping with this year’s theme, “Educate Yourself, Educate Others,” Pfizer is partnering with Lady Gaga to raise awareness of this often-misunderstood disease.

Regardless of what one may think of Pfizer or Lady Gaga, they were both transparent about the promotional / sponsored post, and partnership.
