Linda Gray death hoax spreads on Facebook

Rumors of the actress’s alleged demise gained traction on Wednesday after a ‘R.I.P. Linda Gray’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the American actress’s passing:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday (December 27, 2023), our beloved actress Linda Gray passed away. Linda Gray was born on September 12, 1940 in Santa Monica. She will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.

Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major American network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actress of Linda Gray’s stature would be major news across networks.
