NOLLYWOOD NEWS - The death of popular Nollywood actor Desmond Elliot has been spreading like wildfire lately, but that is NOT TRUE and only a fake death rumour due to a new movie the actor is working on, Nigeria Movie Network have gathered.
Desmond Elliot is not dead ooo!!! He is alive, healthy, and fine as always!
LOS ANGELES (LALATE) Desmond Elliot is not dead. Desmond Elliot is the victim of a fake death report today stemming from a false Facebook image and post. On Friday September 14, 2012, someone wrote on Facebook that Elliot was dead. They posted what appeared to be a death picture. But then at the end of the post, they added a “qualifier” which read “And please don’t panic because its just a shot from the yet-to-be released Movie.”
Just days ago fans were asking if Morgan Freeman had died this September 2012. Now, Desmond Elliot joins Freeman and Bill Nye among the latest celebrities to be struck by fake death reports this month. Today’s tale derives from Facebook, once again. Fans, nevertheless, are irate.
Elliot is a Nigerian actor with more than two hundred credits to his name. But three hours ago, a Facebook account posted a picture of a man covered in blood. The text that went with the image read “BREAKING NEWS: Nigerian Actor Desmond Elliot found Motionless, drown in his blood in a Hotel in Nigeria”. The fake report claimed that Elliot had been murdered in a hotel room.
The false report later stated “Movie fans who first heard the news in Nigeria are in shaking feathers and Investigations are going-on of who might be behind his murder”. But at the bottom of the Facebook post, the author wrote”And please don’t panic because its just a shot from the yet-to-be released Movie”. Other websites, however, have since taken the body of the fake report, re-posted it to readers, but omitted the “please don’t panic” section.
On Nigeria Movie Network Facebook page, some loyal fans of Desmond Elliot are in shock to hear reports of his sudden death and have been asking questions to confirm the story, but that false rumour was short-lived as NMN team took the initiative to inform Nollywood fans properly that Mr. Elliot is well-alive and not dead.
