Danny Trejo (Romeo Parada, Sons of Anarchy) is yet another victim of a celebrity internet death hoax. News of his death spread across the internet quickly this week, causing sadness and concern among Danny Trejo fans worldwide. The rumor gained rapid speed on Sunday (November 6, 2016) afternoon, after a R.I.P. Danny Trejo Facebook page surfaced, and attracted over a million ‘likes’. The “About Page” section contained a very believable account of Danny’s supposed death.
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Sunday (November 06, 2016), our beloved actor Danny Trejo passed away. Danny Trejo was born on May 16, 1944 in Los Angeles. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
The page said. All of this, of course, is not true. Thankfully, Danny is alive and well, despite the thousands of fans who left their condolences on that particular Facebook page. Yesterday, Monday, November 07, 2016), the actor’s reps officially confirmed that Danny Trejo is very much not dead.
“He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this [kind of] hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.”
That being said, check out the awesome Danny Trejo tribute video – to the very much alive actor – below, and tell us in the comments if you’re sick of seeing these ridiculous death hoaxes popping up. Remember, we shared Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy)’s response to his own death hoax (see Related Article link below), and he wasn’t too thrilled about it either. Do you think it needs to stop?
