Not only Hollywood, but celebrity death hoax has killed several Bollywood stars too. After Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Parekh, Hrithik Roshan and Ayushmann Khurrana, now rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has become the victim of death hoax.
And this time, the hoaxers went a step ahead and posted a photo on social networking site. In the photo, a man, who looks very similar to Honey Singh, can be seen lying dead on a hospital bed.
It is not sure from where the photo originated, but it went viral on social networking site. It seems that the viral picture is a snapshot taken from his song "Bring Me Back."
But it turned out that the report is fake and the rapper is alive and doing fine. Honey Singh is currently in Dubai to launch a boxing tournament, the Global Fighting Championship (GFC). The rapper himself clarified the report stating that he is alive.
"News of YoYo's accident is a fake rumour must be spread by some haters. Please don't bother and Keep blessing YoYo," he posted on his official Twitter handle.
However, the death hoax has irked some of his fans on Twitter who later tweeted saying that the news is fake.
