Apr 28, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Like everything else in life, technology has its flip sides and the fact becomes more evident when it comes to the usage of popular social networking sites. There is a section of people who resort to these sites for spreading hoax about the actors and stars. They may do it for fun but at times the fake death news is often taken as truth by the readers and this leads to the death hoax spreading like a wildfire on the web. This is exactly what happened to Bobby Brown, the popular R&B singer. The 41 year old singer and star was said to be dead. The hoax spread through Twitter, a famous micro blogging site that has several millions of users. The people who got the news thought the singer was really dead. Even a section of his fans mistook it to be true and got saddened.
The Twitter rumor spreading the fake news of his death said that he died because of cancer. The truth came out later. The singer is very much alive and he is not ill or something. Before Bobby Brown, stars like Britney Spears and Hollywood hottie Johnny Depp also became the victims of death rumor and the news in their cases also spread fast in the web.
Bobby Brown has been a successful singer in his career. He won a Grammy award as well. His marriage to Whitney Houston ended in 2007. The music lovers know him as the proponent of New Jack Swing music. He is reportedly in a tour right now though the details are sketchy.
