Is Scott Baio dead? No, it’s just another Twitter rumour

Today’s victim of a Twitter death rumour is… Scott Baio, the former Diagnosis: Murder and Happy Days star (and regular Arrested Development guest) who, depending on your source, allegedly died in a car crash or while (I think they meant ‘after’) falling from a stool.

It would seem that Scott Baio is very much alive. And if he is dead, it’s a coincidence. As usual, Twitter has taken a rumour about a minor celebrity’s death and turned it into a huge thing. One day, Scott Baio really will die. Probably. Until then…

Baio is just the latest celebrity to fall victim to these death rumours. Others, in recent months, have included Johnny Depp and Bill Cosby.
