Did An Internet Hoax Foretell Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Death?
DID you hear the news that Philip Seymour Hoffman has died? When did you hear it? Was it a couple of days ago?
Was it about the same time you heard that Vin Diesel was dead?
Or Jessica Simpson had died?
Or any of these famous faces?
On February Vin Diesel’s rep told one and all: “He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.” Hoffman’s rep said thd same.
What kind of a pillock makes up stories about people being dead and then solves the mystery as a scoop? Is this mentally negligible dolt they having second thoughts about their hobby now that one of their targets has died?
Philip Seymour Hoffman has died. He was a great actor – one of the finest of his generation.
