"Misha Collins dead 2014" : Actor killed by internet death hoax

News of actor Misha Collins's death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern amongfans across the world. However the January 2014 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity deathreports. Thankfully, the actor best known for his role on the television series Supernatural is alive and well.

Misha Collins death hoax spreads on Facebook

Rumors of the actor's alleged demise gained traction on Thursday after a R.I.P. Misha Collins' Facebook page attracted nearly one million of likes'. Those who read the About' page were given a believable account of the American actor's passing:

"At about 11 a.m. ET on Thursday (January 02, 2014), our beloved actor Misha Collins passed away. Misha Collins was born on August 20, 1974 in Boston. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page."

Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 39-year-old actor was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.

Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major American network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Misha Collins' stature would be major news across networks.

recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (73%) of respondents think those Misha Collins death rumors are not funny anymore.
