Stars often claim that Wikipedia has written their birth date, year wrong, but this time Wikipedia has gone too far in displaying misinformation. Wikipedia gave an update to the British superstar and superhero Henry Cavill’s page on March 3rd. In this update, Wikipedia claimed that the Superman and Justice League hero is dead.
It was a shocking news which spread instantly all over the media. So much so that Cavill himself was taken aback by the news of his death. Then the actor gave a humorous response to this news and posted on Instagram, “When you learn that you died two days ago,” along with the Wikipedia screenshot.
Fans were extremely relieved with the Insta post by Henry. Many of them were in a shock when Wikipedia declared him dead so the fans wrote “Superman Lives!” and another fan said, “You look very fresh for a dead man.” In the comment section, another person wrote, “You cant die under yellow SUN！😜🤪❤❤❤ You are Superman from Crypton.” Comments like ‘Heroes don’t die,’ and ‘RIP’ are still being written on this post.
This is not the first time that Internet has spread false news of the death of stars. Sylvester Stallone was also considered dead in February. The actor also took a social media app Twitter to clear the false rumors saying “Please ignore the stupidity. Alive and well and happy and healthy…Still punching!”
Cavill is a renowned Hollywood star whose popularity grew with his characters like ‘Superman’ in ‘Man of Steel’ and movies including ‘Justice League’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Now he is working on his new project and will be seen soon in ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’.
The Internet is a source of information for all. This is the digital age, the era of technology, but responsible journalism should be the basic agenda of all the people working on the internet.
