Fact Check: Is Shane Dawson Dead In 2022 As Cheating Trends On His Birthday?
Shane Dawson, a birthday boy, is the latest victim of the absurd death hoax. Fans are concerned and perplexed by the reports, even though the YouTuber is having a blast celebrating his 34th birthday with friends and family.
Bruce Willis, Tom Holland, Snoop Dogg and other famous people have recently been the targets of deadly hoaxes, as has Shane.
On July 19, when the YouTuber’s name started trending for all the wrong reasons, frightened followers flocked to Twitter to see if the death rumors were genuine.
Shane Dawson is not dead
Sadly, on his special day, Shane fell victim to a death hoax. However, these rumors are false.
Shane has been active on Instagram for the past few hours as he enjoys his birthday. Along with a photo related to his birthday, he also shared a series of anecdotes, the most recent of which, at the time of writing, was uploaded about 40 minutes ago.
In April 2021, a similar fake claiming that the YouTuber had died also spread on social media.
As many fans began to trust the claims, it even prompted Keemstar’s response at the time.
Keemstar responded to the rumor by writing, “Shane Dawson Died is Trending! This is most likely fake K-pop spam. I just texted Shane to see how he’s doing. Still no answer.
Both then and still, it has been a hoax. There is simply no cause for concern among fans.
