Paul Walker died in a car crash today in what sounded a lot like one of his movies. And tragically the news was hard to believe as his death was widely circulated just yesterday.
The Hoax page, RIP Paul Walker stated:
At about 11 a.m. ET on Friday (November 29, 2013), our beloved actor Paul Walker passed away. Paul Walker was born on September 12, 1973 in Glendale. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page
Turns out the page that reported the Hoax is also being reported as…well…a hoax, making Paul Walkers death announcement probably one of the strangest ones to have ever hit the internet.
Dead at 40
After presumably hundreds of thousands of loads on its size, TMZ broke the news which was then trickled out slowly to tabloid and celebrity gossip sites and is now being confirmed on larger news sites like Fox, BBC, and ABC.
Additionally Paul Walkers official Facebook and twitter page are now confirming it.
Paul Walker has tragically died.
