Bill Nye, the Science Guy, Death Hoax

via Gossip Cop:

Bill Nye is the latest victim of a death hoax.

The sick rumor was started on Twitter late Sunday until a “R.I.P. Bill Nye The Science Guy” topic began trending, which in turn spawned thousands of messages mourning his supposed death.

It is 100% false.

Nye is NOT dead.

Funny thing is that Bill Nye would be one of the first people to tell kids – and it appears that it was primarily teens who fell victim to this hoax – that they should question everything and show a little skepticism about “news” they discover on the internet in the wild or by word of mouth without attribution.
