    Takes less than 2 minutes to google and find out if something is a HOAX or legit. When it comes to stars being dead google the stars name with Wikipedia at the end, eg Dwayne Johnson Wikipedia and anything.

    Else, just type whatever you are reading, eg help catch this man he kidnapped a child licence plate blah blah blah well in google. Just type man on loose and the licence plate number shown in pic and hoax or snopes you will find out pretty quick if it is real or not.
