So not true! Just another prank gone viral on the internet.
I feel sorry for people who hatch these kinds of news. Someone even gave a link to a supposed NBC news report about Oprah’s vehicular accident, while another even gave details as to when, how and which interstate it happened — as only a sick mind can conjure.
According to reports, pranksters came up with this “juicy” news on the heels of Ex-Senator Ted Steven’s death – in an effort to get it into Google’s Trends list.
A search into the major news sites such as CNN, NBC and even E! Online revealed nothing on Oprah’s alleged demise… not even a whimper of a news.
Pardon the ignorance, but I really do not know and neither do I understand what people get out of making stories like this.
Why some people “rejoice” by fabricating and proliferating rumors about somebody else’s demise is beyond me. If it were the truth then the whole world has the right to talk to about it – but if it’s a complete and utter lie, to go into forums, blogs and websites to declare it as the truth is just plain self-serving.
I cannot believe how many comments and blog entries are confirming that Oprah did die in a car crash… but like the rumor that she was found dead in her home a couple of months ago and that Hulk Hogan just dropped dead after Linda Hogan’s engagement announcement – this is so not true.
