Kate Moss death hoax spreads on Facebook

Rumors of the model’s alleged demise gained traction on Saturday after a ‘R.I.P. Kate Moss’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the British model’s passing:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Saturday (April 13, 2024), our beloved model Kate Moss passed away. Kate Moss was born on January 16, 1974 in London. 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 50-year-old 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 British network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a model of Kate Moss' stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (75%) of respondents think those Kate Moss death rumors are not funny anymore.

Some fans have expressed anger at the fake report saying it was reckless, distressing and hurtful to fans of the much loved model. Others say this shows her extreme popularity across the globe.
