Celebrity Death Hoaxes

For example, earlier this week, people began spreading that YouTuber Nikocado Avocado was dead when he was not. And in 2022, Playboy Carti and Jacki Chan also had such rumors spread about them.

Death hoaxes are actually a common occurrence online. It is an unethical method used to troll internet users with misinformation. However, it is taking trolling one step too far by involving life and death.
