Despite the repeated debunking of these hoaxes, they continue to persist and resurface from time to time. This is likely due to the fact that there is still a large portion of the population that is susceptible to misinformation and false news, especially when it is shared and amplified by social media algorithms.

It is important to note that spreading false information, especially in cases like this where the well-being and reputation of a public figure are at stake, is not only irresponsible, but it can also cause harm.

In the case of a death hoax, family members, friends, and fans of the person in question can be left with a sense of disbelief and confusion.
