“Oprah Winfrey, age 54, was found dead in her home residing in Chicago, Illinois at 8:21 AM on September 20, 2008. Local Police and the FBI are trying to keep it on the down low for now until further notice. From what has been reported thus far, she appears to have a bloody area around her eye, a bullet wound in her stomach and some cuts and bruises”
The fake article goes on to explain that Oprah was targeted because she criticized a certain website.Once again we have a rumor spreading like wildfire without one single confirmation be a credible source.
A similar death report hoax about Miley Cyrus happened on Sep, 6.
I think it’s a safe bet to file this under the category of ‘4chan shenanigans.’
Today, according to this blogger, this message appeared on 4chan.
“Many may not realize this, but we just may be the strongest, yet most unorganized group of people in the world. Impossible to track us. Our positions in the world vary person to person, but together, we are legion.
Let us take control, create “Joker-Like” chaos, this week has been a cute start, but I believe we can do more, much more. We are the new world order. The Illuminati are like children compared to our stature.
To put it simply, my point is.
Kill the Oprah.”
Without making any calls, our collective guess would be that Oprah is safe and sound. She is probably on the phone with Gail somewhere in Chicago, alive and well and still refusing to interview Sarah Palin.
We’ll keep you updated if this hoax turns out to be anything more.
