LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Adam Sandler is not dead. A false Adam Sandler death report that surfaced online last year is striking again today. The fabricated RIP tale claims that Adam Sandler died this November 2012 in a snowboarding accident in Zermatt. Sandler hasn’t been snowboarding, isn’t in Zermatt, and is very much alive like John Cena and Morgan Freeman.
Adam Sandler fake death reports bare a stark difference to those striking other celebrities. Most celebrities are now currently the victim of multiple fake death claims. For example, Lil Wayne on any given day is being killed off in more than a handful of fake death tales. John Cena, in turn, is consistently victimized by fake RIP John Cena Facebook page.
But for Adam Sandler, a snowboard always seems involved. And yet, Sandler still does have a similarity with Morgan Freeman and Jackie Chan. He too has his own fake “RIP Adam Sandler” Facebook pages.
One account called “RIP Adam Sandler” has seventy thousand “friends” but adds “He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the internet.” Another lists Sandler’s false death as June of last year.
The culprit behind the Sandler death today, yet again, is Global Associated aka Media Fetcher. “The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends” reads the fake report. “Witnesses indicate that Adam Sandler lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed” adds the false tale.
If Global’s report sounds familiar, it should. It’s been used against countless film celebrities in the last two year. Denzel Washington battled the same report in August, David Spade faced it in June, and Arnold Schwarzenegger had it in March. As LALATE reported at the time, “the website Global Associated has killed off Adam Sandler to Eddie Murphy in fake death reports about Zermatt.”
Global’s false Arnold report read that Arnold was “at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends”. Global said of Spade “David Spade was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital; however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash.” Adam Sandler is alive along with Spade, Washington, and Schwarzenegger.
