Jaden Smith fans got the shock of their lives this weekend, when a surprising report claimed the 18-year-old actor allegedly committed suicide. Some demanded answers, while others didn’t know what to make of the situation. For instance — when was Jaden last seen alive? We’ve got the answer!
Don’t worry. Jaden Smith, 18, is alive. The news of his alleged suicide was just a hoax reported by news outlets like The Inquisitr. In fact, Jaden was actually seen out and about with his girlfriend, Sarah Snyder, on Sept. 10. So he’s very much alive and breathing. Need proof? The photo above shows him and Sarah gallivanting around NYC Saturday evening.
Sadly, this hoax has been circulating on the internet for over a month. Even though Jaden has remained active on social media, there are some people who believe he’s really dead. And that’s all because of this fake story, which alleges Jaden committed suicide, that has gone viral on Facebook quite a few times.
And he’s not the only celeb who has been the victim of a death hoax. Miley Cyrus and Sylvester Stallone were also victims of recent death hoaxes. All these fake stories actually seem to be originating from the same spot — a news site that creates fake stories in order to obtain user information.
Unfortunately, some people are very gullible, and they truly believe the actor is dead, so they’ve been sharing the post on Facebook. This, in turn, just leads more people to click on it and then, the news site obtains more user information. It’s a deadly cycle (no pun intended) that has caused a lot of commotion in the Hollywood community.
