Days after it was proved that Jaden Smith is, in fact, alive and well and that the news of his death was a hoax, people on Facebook still continue to send their prayers and condolences to the Smith family!
If it’s not Rowan Atkinson, it’s Jaden Smith. Social media hackers just love killing off celebrities and Jaden Smith is its latest victim. July 2016 started with the death hoax of the actor who played everyone’s favorite, Mr. Bean and ended with announcing another hoax about Jaden Smith committing suicide.
Weirdly coinciding with his father’s recently released film, “Suicide Squad”, a particular poster started doing the rounds, which suggested that the rising star has taken his own life just after celebrating his 18th birthday.
The reason behind his sudden demise was not stated clearly. However, most of the people did not question the authenticity of the news because it appeared to have come from the trusted source of CNN.
However, when one clicked on the news, one is directed to a pop-up page made to scam people to sign up for shady subscriptions, reported The Hollywood Gossip.
Weirdly enough, according to Chron, this is not the first time that a Jaden smith death hoax has been circulated on the internet. Back in 2013, the teenage actor was said to have been killed off in a snowboarding accident!
Days after the Facebook rumor of Jaden’s death was rubbished by several news websites, including MNU, prayers, and condolences from fans and public in general still continue to pour in on social media!
A user wrote – “Not sure how accurate this is but if it is true or not I’m praying for the Smith family! April Carter & Pastor John just prayed against suicide on Tuesday at Team Church! Let’s pray for the minds of our youth everywhere! And when I say youth I mean youth of our world!!!”
“R.I.Love Jaden Smith you are now in God’s loving arms Love n prayers to Will Smith n his family xx Be strong xx,” wrote another!
People should be told once and for all that Jaden Smith is alive and kicking!
