Macaulay Culkin is not dead. In fact, he is very much alive and is on tour with his band The Pizza Underground.
According to Britain’s The Mirror, a fake report started circulating on Thursday, November 6, stating that the Home Alone star had passed away.
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Thursday (November 06, 2014), our beloved actor Macaulay Culkin passed away,” the initial report read. “Macaulay Culkin was born on August 26, 1980 in New York. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
The Facebook page responsible for the hoax, titled “RIP Macaulay Culkin,” has since been removed. However, at one point it had hundreds of thousands of “likes.”
This is the second time this year that Culkin has fallen victim of a celebrity death hoax. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Macaulay was rumored to have died back in April, but his reps cleared up the rumors by explaining that the rumors were completely false.
To prove that he is alive and well, Culkin posted a photo to his band’s Twitter account of him holding a beverage. “We’re on tour you silly people / @anchovywarhol’s,” Culkin captioned the photo.
