Bill Cosby Fumes Over Death Hoax
Bill Cosby has come back from the dead for the fourth time, and this time, the legendary comedian is not laughing. The Internet was flooded with “Bill Cosby Died” searches on Monday after some unscrupulous people thought it wise to announce to the whole world that the 73-year-old actor has perished.
In an interview with CNN’s Kyra Phillips, Cosby did not hide his disappointment about the fourth attempt to kill him on social media Web sites, saying that this recent prank angered him because his family was already affected unlike in the past when he was able to joke about it. “I found out when my daughter called the house,” he said, adding that some friends and relatives called her daughter crying.
“I don’t want this person, or whatever, I don’t want them to do this anymore,” Cosby appealed through national television. He also posted a message on Twitter, where the hoax allegedly originated. “Emotional friends have called about this misinformation. To the people behind the foolishness, I’m not sure you see how upsetting this is.”
