Fake YouTube video explored
On July 24, a YouTube page that goes by the name of Recuerda Gente Famosa posted a video about the death of Nicholson. The title of the video read: “R.I.P. We Are Very Sad To Report About Sudden Death Of actor Jack Nicholson.’
The page claims to be a place where the lives of beloved actors and actresses are revisited after the news of their death has been confirmed. Due to this, many people were quick to believe the news and started sharing condolences messages in the comment section.
However, the actor is not dead. He is alive and doing well.
Hoax news debunked
If you visit the profile of the page that posted the video you would notice that Nicholas is not the only actor about whom the video has been made.
In fact, in one day, the page has posted nearly five videos remembering actors who are still alive. Some of them include Al Pacino, Val Kilmer, and others.
Judging by this, it looks like the page tends to post fake news in a bid to get more views on a video.
