Oh, celebrity death hoaxes are going to be a trend in 2011, aren’t they? First, there were rumors of Aretha Franklin’s death, then Charlie Sheen’s. Now, the Internet has decided it’s Adam Sandler’s turn and we’re happy to report that that it is indeed a rumor. What gives, Internet? Happy news, like Reese Witherspoon’s engagement, boring you?
]]>A fake report claimed that while Sandler was vacationing at a ski resort in Switzerland on Dec. 28, the actor “lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.” They claimed he was airlifted to a local hospital, but died instantly from the crash’s impact.
A rep for Sandler issued a statement to Gossip Cop saying, “It’s completely not true and such irresponsible journalism.” We totally agree with Sandler’s rep here. We’re not really sure why people keep starting rumors regarding celebrity death, but it really needs to stop.
