Brad Pitt is Not Dead - He Did Not Commit Suicide

William Bradley "Brad" Pitt, an American actor and producer, is not dead. The fake Facebook post below, disguised as a Fox News article, claiming the 52-year-old actor committed suicide, is another reason why online users should always go to popular and reputable news websites instead of depending on social media posts. Also, Facebook users who click on the fake news post will be asked to allow a fake and malicious Facebook app, disguised as legitimate news app, to access to their accounts. About a month ago, there was a similar hoax or fake-news that claim that Angelina Joli, Brad Pitt's wife, committed suicide.

Whenever something dramatic or depressing like the death of someone is posted on social networking or unpopular websites, online users should verify it with a reputable news website before posting, sharing, commenting or liking the same post.

Hoax - R.I.P Brad Pitt
