Pamela Anderson Dies Fake News

On 15th March 2018, abc News website abcnews-us.com (not the real ABCNews website abcnews.go.com) published the article titled “Pamela Anderson: Famous Playboy Model And Baywatch Star Dies Aged 50“. Accordingly, on 12th March, Pamela apparently collapsed in a bathroom of her Los Angeles home. She was admitted to hospital with complications attributed to Hepatitis C. Later, the actress allegedly developed pneumonia and died on 15th morning after going into cardiac arrest.

Despite the celebrity death claim, there’s no such report on any credible news website or on social media profiles related to Pamela Anderson. Notably, apart from the ‘death story,’ most of the article content was copied from Wikipedia page of Pamela Anderson. Moreover, the abc News website does not carry any credible site information about their publishing content.

Therefore, the claim that Pamela Anderson Dies at the age of 50 is a hoax. Click bait sites often come up with such celebrity death hoaxes because they reach large audience.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
