Anahí death hoax spreads on Facebook
Rumors of the singer’s alleged demise gained traction on Monday after a ‘R.I.P. Anahí’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the Mexican singer’s passing:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Monday (March 20, 2023), our beloved singer Anahí passed away. Anahí was born on May 14, 1983 in Mexico City. She will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 39-year-old singer, songwriter and actress was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.
Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Mexican network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a singer of Anahí's stature would be major news across networks.
A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (79%) of respondents think those Anahí death rumors are not funny anymore.
Anahí Death Hoax Dismissed Since Singer Is ‘Alive And Well’
On Tuesday (March 21) the singer's reps officially confirmed that Anahí is not dead. “She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said.
Some fans have expressed anger at the fake report saying it was reckless, distressing and hurtful to fans of the much loved singer. Others say this shows her extreme popularity across the globe.
