I am not sure if anyone has seen the RIP's on Facebook or Twitter. But there have been many sorry to hear that Bob Denver, the man who played Gilligan on Gilligan's Island has passed away. Yes, it is true that he is no longer with us, but he died just about 7 years ago in 2005. It even says it on the homepage of his official website.

At least this is a change of pace from the usual hoaxes seen on Facebook or Twitter  saying that someone who is alive and well had passed on. In the past year or so I've seen that Jon Bon Jovi had Died, WWE wrestlers John Cena and The Undertaker had passed away and recently actor Eddie Murphy just to name a few.

I don't get why people start these kind of rumors, it's a rather sick joke and makes many of us who report such tragedies look like absolute fools!
