The Celine Dion death hoax is still a problem on social media. The Epoch Times reports on Oct. 27 that the plane crash hoax is linked to Facebook apps. The posts may appear reliable, and sometimes cite CNN, but Dion has not died in a plane crash.
The 45-year-old singer has been the focus of ongoing death hoaxes. Her representatives have confirmed she has not been in any recent plane crashes. Unfortunately, this has not stopped multiple Facebook users from sharing the hoax stories. Their concern has also spread to Twitter as worried users began to question the singer’s status.
Experts warn people not to click on these stories on Facebook because there are no videos of a Celine Dion plane crash. Users are simply giving apps access to their personal information and accounts. There is also a risk of viruses and malware.
Dion is not the only celebrity targeted by these death hoaxes. Jackie Chan is another popular target who has been part of many hoaxes. In Dion’s case, there are two versions of the death hoax that have been seen on Facebook. Most users notice the plane crash story, but there is also a car crash version. Experts recommend avoiding these links and not clicking on the videos.
