  • 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.

    Facebook should not permit these kind of notices about people passing etc. It's false and hurtful info.

    I think people need to grow up and stop making up stories that celebrities have died. Those people need to get a life and shut the h**l up. Those people are sick and twisted. Maybe, just maybe, celebrities need to make fun of them being dead. How would they feel; pretty upset.
