“Bill Cosby dead” was the number one search term on Google Hot Trends this morning when I woke up. Many surfers also saw the terms “did Billy Cosby die” if they used the service which illustrates hot keywords people are searching for. It’s apparent that Bill Cosby dead is just another internet hoax. It’s probably just a malicious rumor that originated because someone thought it would be funny. Who really thinks a celebrity death hoax is funny? The death of anyone shouldn’t be utilized as a vehicle for comedy. Bill Cosby is one of the greatest comedians of his generation. Would he or any other comedian believe a celebrity death hoax is funny?

Bill Cosby joins a long line of other celebrities that have been rumored to be dead at some point. An internet hoax like “did Bill Cosby die” seems to be popular to create these days. Perhaps someone wants instant page views for their blog or just wants to throw something out there that has shock value. I find it in awful taste.

Typically younger celebrities are often rumored to be dead. The distinct problem with a celebrity death hoax concerning someone like Bill Cosby is that it could be feasible to many people. Bill Cosby was born in 1937 so it’s not out of the realm of possibilities that he could pass away at any point. Let’s hope not and just wish that he lives another 20 or 30 years.”
