Pamela Anderson found dead at age 50 is a celebrity death hoax. There is no truth to a story that the former Playboy model And Baywatch television star had passed.
Where did this celebrity death hoax originate? Abcnews-us.com published the fake news article on March 15, 2018, falsely claiming that the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call to Anderson’s home but arrived to find that she had died from a fall. You can read the hoax below.
World famous Playboy model and Baywatch starlet Pamela Anderson has died at the age of 50.
At 8:00 am on March 12, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to “a medical request” at the Los Angeles home of Anderson. She had apparently collapsed in a bathroom. Firefighters attended to Anderson on the scene before transporting her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was admitted with complications attributed to Hepatitis C. According to Chief Coroner Jonathan Lucas M.D., during the course of her treatment Anderson developed pneumonia and died at 10:04 this morning after going into cardiac arrest.
However, there is no truth to the above story. For one thing, there has been no legitimate news coverage of Anderson’s death. Abcnews-us.com is not the actual, official website for ABCNews. Rather, the real site is abcnews.go.com where there is no actual story about Anderson’s “death.”
Additionally, Anderson’s Twitter account does not make any reference to any death or illness that has affected the actress and model. Rather, her Twitter account mentions the recent appointment by President Donald Trump of Gina Haspel as the new head of the C.I.A. despite having played a role in the torture program.
