Is Fred Savage dead? Did Fred actually die in a car accident? The weekends are always good for celebrity internet hoaxes. It seems like every other weekend someone on the hot list either dies in a car accident, overdoses on drugs, or just dies in some miraculous way. The latest rumor making the rounds is about he 34 year old Fred Savage who is known for his role as Kevin on The Wonder Years along with his brother Ben.
Yes you guessed it. The Savage hoax has to deal with a car accident.However, both brothers are NOT dead, and this accident never occurred. Fans all over are searching the internet like crazy causing this rumor to go viral. This headline spreaded from Twitter to Facebook quicker then most of the Justin Bieber rumors. Where did this rumor come from?
According to www.12news.us, Savage died in a drunk driving accident, which lead him to a coma. How ridiculous is this? I know these causes certainly do happen, but why would anyone start such a horrible rumor? No important news reporter such as The Huffington Post, TMZ, or Radar Online has come forward to confirm this hoax is true, so for now this is just another bad celebrity hoax.
When it comes to internet car accidents Fred Savage is not alone. The most infamous one is of course Eminem, who must have died in a car accident a dozen times within the last year. Then Britney Spears,Oprah Winfrey, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Will Smith, Emma Watson, Johnny Depp, and Lady Gaga all have been involved in a car accident of some sort. Why can’t people just leave these celebrities alone?
The sad part is, when someone such as Enimem or Fred Savage appears dead online this makes the internet soar, and causes bloggers all over to go crazy writing about it. Why? Hot celebrity deaths equals views and money for many.
