Betty White, 92, Falls Victim to a Death Hoax

Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – Betty White, the 92 year old Golden Girl, is alive and well.

The much loved comedienne became the subject of a satire news piece that announced: “Actress Betty White, 92, Dyes Peacefully In Her Los Angeles Home.”

What a difference a single letter makes.

White’s fans and supporters who didn’t bother reading the headline carefully or even reading past the controversial headline didn’t realize that the entire post was a satire. As expected, most took to their social networks and started announcing to the rest of the world that the world just lost the actress.

White’s agent confirms to The Los Angeles Times that White is in fact alive and well.

Empire News Headlines have published other controversial headlines that include: “Jay-Z May Have Cheated On Beyonce With Oprah Winfrey, Says Sister Solange Knowles” as well as “Bill Clinton Hits Talk Show Circuit to Promote New Book of White House Themed Erotica.” But has not received such massive attention or worried reactions from the public the way this recent post on Betty White has.
