Really people? A Resse Witherspoon Death Hoax?
This is probably the biggest example of the stupidity of humanity.
This supposed "death hoax" sprung up as a bad joke about the woman's last name. If you're unfamiliar with the joke, it goes a little something like this:
While death hoaxes about some big name celebrity are not rare (I mean, Eddie Murphy dies about once a month now), a person like Reese Witherspoon is not important enough to contrive a death hoax about. It's silly to think someone actually sat in their basement asking the question "Who should die this week?" and came up with Reese Witherspoon. I mean, if I was gonna pick a young, popular actress, I'd probably spread the rumor about Katie Holmes first. Given her marriage to Tom Cruise, it would probably be believable.
