News of musician Yann Tiersen’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the July 2022 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the musician is alive and well.
UPDATE 2022-07-06 : This story seems to be false.
Yann Tiersen death hoax spreads on Facebook
Rumors of the musician’s alleged demise gained traction on Saturday after a ‘R.I.P. Yann Tiersen’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the French musician’s passing:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Saturday, (July 2, 2022), our beloved musician Yann Tiersen passed away. Yann Tiersen was born on 1970-06-23 in Brest. 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 52-year-old musician 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 French network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of musician of Yann Tiersen'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 Yann Tiersen death rumors are not funny anymore.
