An untrue news release announcing the death of Jon Bon Jovi went wild online today, and before you know it, Bon Jovi had joined the ranks of celebrities who’ve been inaccurately pronounced dead on Twitter. Here’s what the first ‘news release’ said, and other stars who got falsely killed off on the web.

Oddly enough, the release was surprisingly specific about the details, but named just one source, citing others that wished to remain anonymous. (Not that uncommon in some news stories, but fairly unorthodox when the news is about a public figure’s death, and the source named is not a family member.)

The initial report was suspicious not only based on the sourcing, but also the poor writing structure, reading: “paramedics found him in a coma at his Empress Hotel, city and law enforcement of Asbury Park, NJ sources told The Times after World Christmas Tour concert on The Bamboozle Festival,North Beach Asbury Park.” Now that’s a little clumsy in the writing department.

It went on to name New Jersey Fire Department-First Aid Captain Douglas Gray… saying that when paramedics responded to a 911 call from the home, Bon Jovi was not breathing. But as we know now, that wasn’t true. (In some early digging, I’ve been unable to find an actual Douglas Gray with the fire department, although that doesn’t mean there isn’t one out there. Nor does it mean he actually said these things.)

Once the story went viral, Bon Jovi turned to Facebook (and eventually, Twitter) to set the record straight, and confirm his heart rate was set to ‘alive.’ At 7:02 pm he quipped: “‘Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey’ -jbj

He’s got plenty of witnesses to his health… he’s reportedly appearing at a charity event tonight.

If it’s any consolation, Jon Bon Jovi has a reminder of how many fans he has… they’ve been posting and tweeting like crazy today.

Bon Jovi is by no means the first celeb to be killed off on Twitter… everyone from Justin Bieber to Lindsay Lohan have been rumored dead via tweet. Even more famously, Jim Carrey and Christian Slater were both ‘announced’ dead on Twitter, oddly enough, both from snowboarding accidents. Thankfully, all of them are alive and well.

Courteney Cox’s Instagram Caption Is Every Parent With A Teenage Kid

Published

on

Have you heard? It’s 2020 and we’re all supposed to music videos on TikTok. Courteney Cox is no exception. The TV star posted an instagram of her and her daughter Coco dancing it out, with the hilarious caption, “Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them.”

Also, how long does it take to actually learn one of these routines? It seems very time consuming.

What I was really hoping for was video of her daughter losing her patience, but what we got was a pretty strong routine!
