Celebrity death hoaxes aren’t something entirely new, however, with the convenience of Twitter and other social media platforms, it is so much easier and faster to have them carry out and reach a large quantity of people. On Sunday night, 90s educational TV show host Bill Nye the Science Guy was the latest celebrity to receive a death hoax, with “R.I.P. Bill Nye The Science Guy” trending on Twitter. Gossip Cop quickly debunked the rumor, but not without fans pouring out messages mourning his death.
