Katja Riemann death hoax spreads on Facebook

Rumors of the actress’s alleged demise gained traction on Friday after a ‘R.I.P. Katja Riemann’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the German actress’s passing:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Friday (October 15, 2021), our beloved actress Katja Riemann passed away. Katja Riemann was born on November 1, 1963 in Weyhe-Kirchweyhe. 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 57-year-old 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 German network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actress of Katja Riemann's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (69%) of respondents think those Katja Riemann death rumors are not funny anymore.
