Rumors that Pamela Anderson has passed away circulated not too long ago and people were shocked! However, soon after, it was discovered that it was nothing more than a hoax! What exactly happened?
It looks like a news site tried to get some attention by claiming that the actress died at the age of 50 when she is in fact very much alive!
The said website is called ABCNews-us.com and is, as you can only imagine, in no way affiliated with ABC News.
Before it was taken completely down, the fake news managed to cause a huge storm on social media, especially among Pamela’s fans.
‘At 8:00 A.M. on March 12, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to ‘a medical request’ at the Los Angeles home of Anderson. She had apparently collapsed in her bathroom. Firefighters attended to Anderson at the scene before taking her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she Pamela admitted with Hepatitis C. complications. According to Chief Coroner Jonathan Lucas M.D., over the course of her treatment she developed pneumonia and passed away at 10:04 this morning after going into cardiac arrest,’ the fake article read.
Those are some details for something that is obviously not true! They really tried, didn’t they?
Not to mention that Anderson really did struggle with Hepatitis C in the past (but claims to be cured now,) and that Chief Coroner Jonathan Lucas M.D. is a real person!
Even though Anderson is yet to address the phony article herself, no other news outlet shared the same information which means the problematic news site made it all up!
In addition to that, Pam was very active on social media that day, posting a lot!
Of course, she has an entire team to do that for her most of the time but the fact that everything carried on as usual, is proof enough the news was fake.
