Please help us to remember this prominent figure and great comedian and actress has recently passed away.
Located on Facebook at:
http://www.facebook.com/ pages/RIP-Betty-White/283695701745011

Here are two more fake Facebook pages created to take advantage of this hoax:

  • http://www.facebook.com/ pages/RIP-Betty-White/219971778027890
  • http://www.facebook.com/ pages/RIP-Betty-White/646424712072361

These fake pages have tricked thousands of Betty White fans into posting messages of condolences.

This is an attempt by the page administrators to exploit a celebrity death hoax for the sake of getting a lot of likes, therefore making the Facebook page popular.

Her representatives officially confirmed that she is not dead. The actress, who was born in 1922, celebrated her 92nd birthday in January.

So, if you were tricked into sharing this hoax, please remove all posts, comments or “likes” of it from your Facebook Timeline or Wall. This will help prevent this hoax from spreading to other social networking users.

This celebrity death hoax is similar to the Celine Dion, Will Smith,Shaggy, Rapper Eminem, Jackie Chan, Oprah Winfrey, Miley Cyrus and Angelina Jolie hoaxes.
