Rumors of the singer’s alleged demise gained traction on Thursday after a ‘R.I.P. Daryl Hall’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the American singer’s passing:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Thursday (January 14, 2021), our beloved singer Daryl Hall passed away. Daryl Hall was born on October 11, 1946 in Pottstown. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.

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 American network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a singer of Daryl Hall's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that 55% still think false Daryl Hall death rumors are funny.
