‘Is George Zimmerman dead’? Zimmerman killed off by viral death hoax


How ’bout “nahh”? But he does have a nasty case of Internet death hoax.


Ya think?


The website CreamBmp.com ran the headline “George Zimmerman found dead after accidentally shooting himself while loading gun.” The clearly authoritative news source “reported” that 911 responders “were in no rush to the scene of Zimmerman’s death” at a Florida gun range. More:

An Orlando sheriff admits he doesn’t plan to fully investigate for foul play as they don’t want to waste tax money on a death that was going to happen one way or another.

CreamBmp includes this disclaimer:

This website is comprised of satire and parody of current news and urban culture. For entertainment purposes only.

But satire is hard. And for many, the “news” about the man found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin was evidently just too good to check.
