'Betty White dies' news goes viral (Death Hoax)

The 'Golden Girls' actress Betty White has been the recent target of an Internet death hoax, hence you could be seeing some feeds in your Facebook timelines - 'Betty White Dies at 92' or something like 'Dyes Peacefully'.


News on White's death, which turned out to be 'satirical' is even played with the sub-headline 'dyes peacefully in her Los Angeles home'.

While its publisher Empire News claimed the article just for fun, a death taken as a joke is not funny at all, The Epoch Times commented.

Betty White was even quoted (fake):
Oh, I started dying it ages ago when my color started to fade away to a more whiteish, greyish color. I thought to myself, ‘Well Betty, if you can’t have the dark color anymore, might as well try on the blonde for a while,’ and it just kind of stuck. When I played Rose on Girls, the joke about my natural hair color made it into several episodes. I’ve always had a sense of humor about it.
Here is a screen grab of what the satire website says in its About Page:

As of the moment, quite a lot of people shared the fake news already and its it is getting viral. Facebook and Twitter even bit the dust on the craze - Betty White death hoax.
