The newest celebrity death hoax is currently making the rounds on the Internet, and people just can't seem to catch on. For some reason, there are so many people that will never realize that Empire News is a website that always brings forth fake news just as they reported on Sept. 3, 2014, that Betty White died. Well, the Betty White death hoax is a bit more obvious since it says that she "dyes" peacefully.
Betty White, the last remaining "Golden Girl" is still currently alive and well at the age of 92.
Empire News stated that her long-time manager Jeff Witjas actually confirmed that White - wait for it - is "not a natural blonde." As The Bull pointed out, the site even put in fake quotes from people, including White.
“Oh, I started dying it ages ago when my color started to fade away to a more whiteish, greyish color,” says White. “I thought to myself, ‘Well Betty, if you can’t have the dark color anymore, might as well try on the blonde for a while,’ and it just kind of stuck. When I played Rose on Girls, the joke about my natural hair color made it into several episodes. I’ve always had a sense of humor about it.”
Perhaps the worst part of all this is that Empire News doesn't ever actually report that Betty White has died. They stand by the fact that she "dyes" her hair peacefully in her Los Angeles home. Blame can't really be put on Empire News, but more so on those that don't know the difference between "die" and "dye."
Grammar can save lives.
The "Hot In Cleveland" star is doing fine and has no intentions of retiring from acting or her numerous other projects any time soon.
The Betty White death hoax is just the latest in a long line of celebrity death hoaxes that in recent years have included Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby, Wayne Knight, Reese Witherspoon, Rihanna, and so many others.
