Adam Sandler is NOT dead and neither is Aretha Franklin

I was on Twitter earlier when I read a tweet that said "OMG, Adam Sandler is DEAD!" also included in the tweet was a link to what LOOKS like a newstory of a skiing accident that left Adam Sandler dead.

Of course, when you glance at the article it looks legit. 
And "glancing" or "skimming" is what everyone seems to be doing because if you try and click on any of the links then you will notice it is clearly not a legit site.

Also, at the bottom it reads :
(click to read)

Adam Sandler is NOT dead.

There's also tweets going around about Aretha Franklin, Aaron Carter and Charlie Sheen. 

Aretha Franklin is not dead.
Aaron Carter? Not dead

These are just more hoaxes circulating on Twitter.

Some people have WAY TOO MUCH TIME on their hands.

They should come to my house.
I've got plenty of laundry to fold and also kids rooms to clean : )

Creator rumors are people with less work. Or maybe there was something wrong with him or any social distortion?

More proof that social media holds an amazing power! Too bad most people believe what they see and take it as the truth.
