Jeff Goldblum story is a hoax
Portable Planet ^ | 2009-06-25

Posted on 06/25/2009 5:32:50 PM PDT by justlurking

The multiple reports stating that Jeff Goldblum died today in a tragic fall while filming a movie in New Zealand are 100% false.

Having been online for longer than we’d like to admit, we caught this story as a fake immediately — because it’s originally from at least 2006.

While the story has remained the same throughout the years, the actors names have varied. Last time, it was Tom Cruise. This time, it’s Jeff Goldblum. In six months, it’ll be Zac Efron.

I’m guessing the Harrison Ford story is a hoax too?

Another one here:

http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/jeff-goldblum-death-hoax-2808279

A story circulating that actor Jeff Goldblum has died falling off a cliff at Kauri Cliffs golf course in Northland is a hoax.

Australian media including Channel 9 have been reporting the story.

New Zealand police communication officer John Neilson says the same story was going around a couple of months ago. He says it is not correct.

Heard about the hoax about 15 minutes ago. And no, Will Smith isn’t dead either ~

Glad it’s a hoax. I kind of like him as an actor. Besides, two in one day is enough.

Francisco Franco is quietly waiting for the arrival of his cousin Fidel Castro. Once he gets there they’ll both “depart together”. (You knew they were both Gallegos, right?)

Zac Efron isn’t real. He’s just a pretty hologram.

So, Michael Jackson is still alive then?

I knew It! I'll bet that Sanford guy or the Iranians are trying to divert attention.

Yes: http://www.take40.com/news/16565/jeff-goldblum-harrison-ford-deaths-a-hoax

Another rumour that popped up this morning is that Harrison Ford was dead. He also happens to be doing fine.

[Ford and Goldblum] are both working on a movie together with Rachel McAdams called 'Morning Glory'. They were all spotted filming in New York 2 days ago, so the likelihood of Goldblum even being in New Zealand are slim to none.

Didn’t he turn into a fly or something?

On the other hand, Michael Jackson is still dead.

Just tell the me the story about Richard Marx is bogus. I’ve been listening to “Right Here Waiting” and bawling my eyes puffy for two hours now.

Somebody please, just kill the pain. Lie to me if you have to.

How long will it be before something bad happens internationally because of a hoax on the Internet that cannot be immediately disproven? There have already been people on FR who are making the same statements about events in Iran.

The fact that I can even consider it certainly illustrates intentional manipulation by a fabricaton is possible (speaking generally, and not towards Iran)

It sounds like a novel, but hoaxes have been intentionally created through history for various purposes. We now have the powerful medium for transmission called “The Internet”...:)

I put a little smiley face there, but it is amazingly true that what the Internet is and does runs far and deep throughout the globe.

Jack Lalanne Harry Morgan, and Herman Wouk are still kicking at 94. Frank Cady (Sam Drucker from Petticoat Junction) is still around. Ernest Borgnine is hanging in there. Beverly Cleary is hanging tough at 93.
