On Nov. 30, 2013, actor Paul Walker tragically died in a fiery car accident that also killed a good friend of his by the name of Roger Rodas. The Santa Clarita Police and Walker's representatives have confirmed his death, there are amateur videos of the fire post-crash, and even security footage capturing the accident as it happened. As of Dec. 2, 2013, many people refuse to believe it and believe there is still a Paul Walker death hoax at work.

Two days before his tragic death, a celebrity death hoax started being passed around the Internet stating that Paul Walker had died. That sense of irony came to a tragic end when his death really did happen.

Celebrity death hoaxes are nothing new and there have been circulating around social media sites and search engines for years. Here are just a few that have come about over the past year or two:
