Henri Castelli death hoax spreads on Facebook
Rumors of the actor’s alleged demise gained traction on Sunday after a ‘R.I.P. Henri Castelli’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the Brazilian actor’s passing:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Sunday (May 28, 2023), our beloved actor Henri Castelli passed away. Henri Castelli was born on February 10, 1978 in São Bernardo do Campo. He 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 45-year-old actor and model 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 Brazilian network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Henri Castelli's stature would be major news across networks.
A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (61%) of respondents think those Henri Castelli death rumors are not funny anymore.
