Jimmy Fallon Victim Of Death Hoax
The late-night show host hopped online early today to plead with new Twitter owner Elon Musk for his help in rectifying the trending hashtag “RIPJimmyFallon”. “Elon, can you fix this? #RIPJimmyFallon,” he asked the mogul who swiftly responded with a cheeky “Fix what?”
While the comedian was hot on the trail trying to figure out who started the crazy trend that is making fans believe that he has passed on, fans are dropping their good wishes on his page and liberally using the hashtag.
Fans React To Jimmy Fallon ‘Passing’
“#RIPJimmyFallon. Taken too soon 💔,” wrote one fan who wasn’t aware it is a joke. Another fan remembered the allegedly late comedian with their favorite clip of him, one where he tussles Donald Trump’s hair during an appearance on his late show.
Another believer of the trend was “devastated” that he passed and said, “You will be missed.” Someone followed up that tweet with “An unforgettable man who will never be forgotten.”
Unfortunately for them, they will be deleting those tweets soon especially after seeing how hard people are clowning the fake death announcement online.
Elon, can you fix this? #RIPJimmyFallon

Jimmy Fallon’s Passing Is A Joke
Seeing as the “Saturday Night Live” alum is still alive and kicking, fans chose to crack jokes about the fake passing and making the comedian’s “death” his “best joke yet”.
“Jimmy tweeting this straight from his grave, WTF!! This world has seen everything now. #RIPJimmyFallon 💔,” one fan joked and retweeted Fallon pleading for help. “It’s like he’s still here sometimes,” another follower poked fun.
Fellow comedian, writer, and friend Elijah Schaffer got in on the joke hashtag, “We miss you dude! You were always one of the best.”

One clever follower cracked the case of his untimely death pointing to a performance from Paramore days earlier that took him to his grave. “Performance so good it k1lled him days later.”
Many followers of the trend were loving the joke about how Fallon would show up to work on the Tonight Show, that featured a man riding in a casket presumable dead but reaches his destination and pops out.
Followers Took The Moment To Slam Elon Musk
While Fallon was busy coming to terms with his passing, his comment section on Twitter served for some blue bird app hate. “Jimmy, to clarify, you’re asking Elon to remove the hashtag right? You’re not asking him to bring you back from the dead, that would be impossible. Twitter can’t even make an edit button..”
“It’s trending because Twitter allows fake news now. There are no adults in the board room or moderators. Elon Musk fired them all. This is what Twitter looks like when anything goes and you can literally crash corporate stocks with a fake tweet,” insisted another follower.
One person posted a photo of Musk blowing a bubble gum bubble and simply wrote, “Ha! No, he’s to busy!”
“This is just another fake account, we all know you’re dead,” joked a fan of Fallon. While another follower pointed out that the subscription blue check is backfiring rapidly. “It can’t be a fake account. It’s got a blue check, signifying blue checkedness.”
So just to clarify, Fallon is not dead, thankfully, but we won’t believe it until we see him live on the “Tonight Show”. And, social media users are still pissed at Elon Musk and what he is doing to the platform.
