A Tracy Morgan death hoax provocated on social media just two days before the actor was critically hurt in an accident on the NJ turnpike.
What terrible timing for a hoax!
Rumors of the actor’s alleged demise gained traction on Thursday after a ‘R.I.P. Tracy Morgan’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the American actor’s passing:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Thursday (June 05, 2014), our beloved actor Tracy Morgan passed away. Tracy Morgan was born on November 10, 1968 in New York. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.” source
Another website is reporting that Morgan has in-fact passed away. This is UNCONFIRMED..
Sources say actor Tracy Morgan has just passed due to extensive injuries from a 6 car accident in New Jersey. More info to come shortly.
