Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Australian network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a model of Lara Bingle'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 Lara Bingle death rumors are not funny anymore.
