LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Adam Sandler is not dead in a snowboarding accident today. A fake Adam Sandler death report surfaced online in 2011 when Sandler’s then latest film Jack and Jill hit movie theatres. Now that same report is surfacing online today as Sandler’s latest film That’s My Boy hits malls this weekend.
Since 2011, Adam Sandler’s false death reports appear to follow his film releases. Each time that Sandler releases a film, someone appears to author another fabricated death report about the actor. In fact, the false reports generally strike the debut weekend of Sandler’s films.Sandler’s case, however, is relatively novel. Most fake celebrity death reports this year have generally struck when the actor or singer was away from their social media accounts for several days.
Sandler, however, is not the only celebrity to be a victim of fabricated tales this weekend. On Friday, Wiz Khalifa battled the same false car accident story. The culprit was Global Associated. Global’s report claimed “Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa lost control while driving a friend’s vehicle on Interstate 80 and rolled the vehicle several times killing him instantly.” The report should sound familiar; it’s been used before against DJ Tiesto and against David Guetta.
For Sandler, the latest fabricated claim is, yet again, a snowboarding accident, from Global Associated. “The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Adam Sandler lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.”
The same report has been used against Charlie Sheen as well. The image of the “dead” person is the same for Sandler as for Sheen and everyone else that G.A. uses. And if you read that someone perished hiking Australian cliffs, (Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and George Clooney), it’s false as well.
