Now, there are rumors that Mel Gibson is dead. Perhaps in a sense these rumors are actually true. The Gibson that we know and love – the “Braveheart” – is dead. His racist tirades and mid-life meltdown have turned him into just a pretty shell of what he once was.
However, Mel Gibson is very much alive and very well (in a sense.)
There’s also rumors that he is moving to Australia . Again, as much as many people don’t want him around – he’s not going anywhere! He’s staying put. At least for now. We will have to wait and see just how well he fares going through this divorce. He may have no other option.
All of these rumors showcase how out of hands stories can get in the press. Twitter is what spawned the death rumors – and that’s where celebrity death hoaxes usually begin. This time, maybe a Tweet was taken TOO literal, when it should have been taken with a grain of salt.
