Johnny Depp Not Dead: Victim Of Another Death Hoax

Despite Internet rumors, the ‘Pirates of the Carribeean’ actor is NOT dead. The death of a crew member on the set of his latest film caused a social media miscommunication.

Johnny Depp fans can breathe a sigh of relief — the 49-year-old actor is alive and well. Unfortunately, it was a 48-year-old crew member who died on the set of his new Disney film, The Lone Ranger. 

According to LA law enforcement, the actual victim, Mike Bridger, was cleaning a pool tank on the Los Angeles movie set, when he went into full cardiac arrest and died on Sept. 21, according to TMZ.

In the weeks following, searches for “Johnny Depp dead” and “Johnny Depp death” have resurfaced, propelling the term to be a top search on AOL and Google, and causing fans to believe the actor had perished.

This isn’t the first time Johnny has been the victim of a death hoax. In 2010, a fake CNN website reported the actor died in a car accident in France.

Although the basis of this rumor is tragic, we’re all relieved Johnny Depp’s death is just another Internet rumor.

Did YOU think Johnny Depp was dead HollywoodLifers?

In my opinion, Johnny Depp is the most talented actor, of all time. His charisma and his devotion to his art is truly magnificent. Having seen most of his movies, I am always amazed at the wide spectrum of diverse characters, and because of this diversity,he should be given a “Five Star”Rating. Yes God was good to Mr. Depp, and I feel blessed to be one of his many fans.I hope he lives to a ripe, old age, and continues to portray many more unusual characters,and that I am able to have the opportunity to see many more of his entertaining projects.Thank-you, Johnny! I truly enjoyed seeing the beautiful scenery in New Mexico, my native state, and went to see you, in the Western, The Lone Ranger. I saw it a total of three times! Tonto was my favorite too, as I have always felt close to the Native Americans, and their heritage.Take good care, now! I hope you get the opportunity to read my review! So long, and see you , at the movies.

I read about Johnny Depp on facebook, my heart was broken. I hoped it wasn’t true, and I am so happy to know he lives, and that it was all a madeup storey

I am a very big fan of johnny depp and would do anything for him but I just can’t believe how some people talk about him like he may be a super hot movie star but he is also a human he has feeling and the way people talk about him is like terrible like when he was spotted leaving someone house and not wanting to be seen it’s that stuff that make our favorite stars turn to drugs and drinking so I say stop the gossip and I hope one day it will all end I wish to be a movie star one day but if all the gossip is still there, there is a fat chance I will want to be one so I hope my word can be told to everyone and I hope that our stars can live their lives like we live our. Thank you

I actually thought it was true for a moment until a friend of mines old me that it wasn’t true and thank the Good Lord that he is still with us. I love all of the movies that he plays in and he is a wonderful actor. People need to get the correct facts first before they begin spreading rumors. May the Lord bless u Mr. Depp and Im a fan of his also. See u in your next movie. Stay blessed.

Johnny you are the best. I enjoy every movie. In my opinion you are the best. Your face structure has the ability for to change to any character in a movie. And by the way. I would love to have a picture of you with your signature. You are the bomb.

I knew it’s not true, because it wasn’t on the news. When people die they report it on the news

When a actor especially Johnny Depp there would be CNN.HLN,ABC,NBC and so on who be stopping the press to let the world know that he died and how and when and where.It would be huge.So how do these rumors start. I just think it is strange.Sad a person died,but someone took advantage of this death for a early start of marketing this up and coming movie.Just think about it again this is BIG money business and investors aren’t funny people believe me.

I now have a sigh of relief. I love this man even not knowing him in person. I grew up watching 21 jump street swore one day he would b my husband Nd I would make him the happiest man n the world. I’m so greatful he is still alive. He has beautiful children Nd fans that need him n the worst way. I have enjoyed everything that hes done. Hes the most gorgeous man n the world. I would do anything for him if I could. I mean that too. I’m so thankful. Thank you for letting ppl know the truth. <3 u Johnny..
