Wayne Knight Trailer Tractor Accident Rumour - Internet/Facebook Rumour
Rumours are circulating that claim popular actor Wayne Knight was killed in a tractor-trailer accident.
The actor, best known for Seinfeld and Jurassic Park, was apparently killed when his car slammed into a semi-tractor-trailer “last Saturday night”.
However, as is common in the world of celebrity deaths, this is just another hoax. The story was conjured up and reposted in several fictional news outlets that masquerade as legitimate media outlets, like the screenshot above, which is of a fake website designed to look like the US Weekly website.
A website that reposted the fake story was www.usmagazine.us – the real website is www.usmagazine.com.
As usual the advice is to only get your news from legitimate news outlets, and always know the correct web address of your preferred websites to protect yourself from trusting imposter websites masquerading as the real thing.
Wayne Knight, in response to the hoax, tweeted –
Does someone have to DIE to trend? Geez! Thanks for all the love everybody. I didn’t know you cared. Glad to be breathing!— Wayne Knight (@iWayneKnight) March 16, 2014
