In liu of flowers hold a packet of sugar over your heart? That immediately should have been the clue that McGrath was alive.
Anyone else tired of the celebrity death hoax’s? If the story looks ridiculous and sounds ridiculous and far-fetched there is a good chance it is ridiculous.
Thankfully, before running with the story and trying to be the first to report, we checked the news source.
The death hoax’s began years ago with Adam Sandler, but have advanced quite a bit. From dying in a skiing accident to being killed by a masked man and dying in someone’s arms?
Axle Rose was also a victim of a death hoax last month.
The best we can do is not feed into it and look at the source before we report on it or before it becomes a trending store on Twitter.
