    I wish people would stop doing this and be more respectful to the loved ones of these people. They keep doing these stupid death hoax on. What makes you think these are funny is beyond me. GROW THE HELL UP AND GET A LIFE.. Not dead another stupid hoax. If she really had died it would be all over the news not just on some social media page.
