The recent Jaden Smith dead hoax was not the first for the young actor. Moreover, it might not be the last time for the young actor.
The Jaden Smith dead hoax caused quite a frenzy on the Internet. Recently, sources hinted his supposed death from suicide was due to depression over cheating allegations of his girlfriend, Sarah Snyder. Yet neither rumor seemed to faze the scion of Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. In the days following the release of the rumors, it was business as usual for the young Smith. He actively went on with promotions for the upcoming Netflix series The Get Down.
It appears his father seemed to have enough of the Jaden Smith dead hoax as well. The Suicide Squad actor spoke about his son’s recent antic. Perhaps, in an attempt to rebuff the rumors. His hilarious anecdote about their recent 18th birthday celebration in London would prove the young Smith is alive and well.
As it turns out, this is not the first Jaden Smith dead hoax to hit the headlines on the Internet. A false report about his death in Switzerland came out in 2011 due to a snowboarding accident. TMZ described the news as a sick joke, possibly published for stupid fun at the actor’s expense. At the time, a rep for the young Smith strongly denied the report.
Celebrity dead hoax reports continue to flourish on the Internet. Jaden Smith joins a long list of famous personalities victimized by bogus news like these. Hence, it could be proof of his growing fame albeit the twisted manner. He joins stars like Miley Cyrus and Tom Cruise. Even his Karate Kid co-star Jackie Chan is a regular victim of the dead hoax report. Thus, Jaden Smith seems to be in good company.
