Rumors of the politician’s alleged demise gained traction on Saturday after a ‘R.I.P. Ehud Olmert’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the Israeli politician’s passing:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Saturday, (May 21, 2022), our beloved politician Ehud Olmert passed away. Ehud Olmert was born on 1945-09-30 in Binyamina-Giv'at Ada. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 76-year-old politician was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.
Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Israeli network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of politician of Ehud Olmert's stature would be major news across networks.
A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (87%) of respondents think those Ehud Olmert death rumors are not funny anymore.
