I don't believe it.
I don't want it to be real.
It can't be real.

If he'd died, I'm sure the media hounds would have picked up on it...

Put it this way, don't trust rumours.
When it comes through the proper media, then believe it.

There was a Depp hoax in 2007, saying he had a heart attack in Paris

If he was truly dead now it would be everywhere, so its a hoax.

I did a quick Google search on it about an hour ago. All were fake news, trying to imposter a CNN article and all.

I never said I believed it! I said in the original post it was a hoax :ton:

I just wondered how many folk had hearda bout it/how wide spread the rumor was.

I don't get why someone wants to create such rumours.
Not the first time someone spreads rumours like this, bith Will Ferrell and Jeff Goldblum have been victims of this recently.

Personally I don't think Depp is dead.
Really hope it's not true.

Well, he does do drugs... Might've been like what happened with Brittany Murphy (no relation) here a month or so back.

Edit: (D'oh!, the article said a car accident)... Duh.

Yeah...

But as I said on the first page, the media would have surely got a hold of some truth of his death by now.

im sure if he did die, major TV networks would interrupt broadcasts,like an NBC Special Report; which are generally reserved for major events like: Death of politician/Former First Lady, presidential Speech, breaking news stories, etc.
