Jack Black Not Dead – Fake New Zealand Death Story Resurfaces

Posted: February 3rd, 2012 in Jack Black by LALATE

Jack Black Not Dead - Fake New Zealand Death Story Resurfaces

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Jack Black is not dead. A fake Jack Black death report from last year, that falsely claimed that Black died in New Zealand, surfaced last night. In December, a fake report claimed that Jack Black erroneously died on the Kauri Cliffs while filming in New Zeland. The same false report today, however, is regaining speed.

In early December, Jack Black battled fake death reports stemming from the website Global Associated. The false Global report claimed that Black had been in New Zealand filming, which he wasn’t. Global claimed that Black fell hiking in New Zealand, which he hadn’t been, and that he died. The same false report, for reasons unknown, resurfaced online last night.

The false report states “Preliminary reports from New Zealand Police officials indicate that the actor fell more than 60 feet to his death on the Kauri Cliffs while on-set. Specific details are not yet available. The accident occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m.”

But buried in the bottom of the article is a disclaimer, in small font. The disclaimer reads “this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction”. It adds “any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated”.

In December, Black battled fake death reports at the same time as Zac Hanson, Hurricane Chris.

Moreover, the same fake report about Jack Black has previously been used to kill off Will Smith as well. The author has used the same “Kauri Cliffs” story before for identical stories about Dwayne Johnson, Tony Danza, Tom Hanks, and Jeff Goldblum, among others.

Since 2007, the speed and frequency of fake celebrity death reports has grown. But the fake reports are also becoming more similar. A route 80 car crash, a New Zealand fall, a Zermatt snowboarding accident have been among the most common fabricated stories.

Typically the tales target male celebrities, rather than females. Music celebrities are most frequently targeted with fake car crashes, while film actors are targeted with fake sporting accidents.

In recent months, however, the biggest confusion has stem from false Facebook profiles. Frequently, “RIP Celebrity” Facebook accounts have been established. Fans have become irate and confused that someone would go to the extent to create entire Facebook accounts to falsely report a celebrity’s death.

Jack Black is not dead. Adam Sandler is alive and well. And Lil Wayne hasn’t been driving on Route 80 either.
