Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Venezuelan network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Guillermo Dávila's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (88%) of respondents think those Guillermo Dávila death rumors are not funny anymore.
