Adam Sandler Fans Panic Over False Death Rumors


When a false rumor that Adam Sandler had died emerged online, fans panicked. The rumor – or perhaps intentional hoax – has been going around since at least November in various forms, but it just resurfaced and rose to prominence again. Sandler, 55, is still in good health.

Although it isn’t clear where the rumors about Sandler’s death originated, they can be traced back to a TikTok video which went viral in November. The sad clip claimed that Sandler had drowned and presented it as breaking news that some viewers believed to be true. Later, the original poster commented that it was a “sick humor,” but others continue to post the video to scare people across all platforms.

Bob Saget
