RUMOR PATROL! Claims that ‘Baywatch’ alum and Playboy Model, Pamela Anderson had passed away are FALSE! Anderson is very much still alive!
Where did this celebrity death hoax originate? Abcnews-us.com published the fake news article on March 15, 2018, falsely claiming that the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call to Anderson’s home but arrived to find that she had died from a fall. You can read the hoax below.
World famous Playboy model and Baywatch starlet Pamela Anderson has died at the age of 50.
At 8:00 am on March 12, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to “a medical request” at the Los Angeles home of Anderson. She had apparently collapsed in a bathroom. Firefighters attended to Anderson on the scene before transporting her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was admitted with complications attributed to Hepatitis C. According to Chief Coroner Jonathan Lucas M.D., during the course of her treatment Anderson developed pneumonia and died at 10:04 this morning after going into cardiac arrest.
However, there is no truth to the above story. For one thing, there has been no legitimate news coverage of Anderson’s death. Abcnews-us.com is not the actual, official website for ABCNews. Rather, the real site is abcnews.go.com where there is no actual story about Anderson’s “death.”
Nonetheless, people were fooled about the celebrity death hoax and shared it on social media. Here are some examples of people sharing the celebrity death hoax on social media.
