Is Bon Jovi dead? No, it’s another fake death rumour

Yet another fake death rumour started spreading on Twitter and Facebook today, with Jon Bon Jovi being the target this time. Fake reports claimed he had been found dead on the floor of a hotel room.

It’s pretty easy to tell whether these things are true or not. For one thing, although the website ‘announcing’ Bon Jovi’s death looked pretty respectable, it was in fact hosted at (er, just like this site!) and all the rumours seemed to have bounced off that site.

So rest assured that Bon Jovi isn’t dead. Or if he is, it’s a coincidence. But one day there’ll be a celebrity death and no-one will believe it for days because we’ll all be so jaded. Perhaps that’s the whole point?
