No Internet, Leonardo Dicaprio Did Not Get Raped By A Bear

Despite reports to the contrary, world renowned actor and philanthropist Leonardo Dicaprio did not get raped by a bear in his new film The Revenant.

Drudge Report had exclusively reported that the actor’s character was raped twice by a bear in the survivor film set in the 1820s.

From Drudge:

“The bear flips Leo over and thrusts and thrusts during the explicit mauling.

‘He is raped — twice!'”

This of course is not even close to being true according to Fox, the studio that produced the picture.
“There is clearly no rape scene with a bear,” A Fox statement obtained by The New Republic said.

 

The film centers around the life of Hugh Glass, a real life explorer who was brutally mauled by a bear and left for dead. Glass survived the attack after a harrowing 200 mile journey to the nearest American outpost.

No Internet, Miley Cyrus Is Not Dead

Miley Cyrus seems to be the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax that is making the Internet lose its mind.

The 22 year old singer’s fake death was the subject of a viral Internet post by a fake news website called Action News 3.

The site (which we won’t link to) is not an actual news organization and seems to be run by a shell company in Arizona that also runs other shady website including the now defunct mugshotsworld.com.

The site sure made it sound convincing though:

“Miley Cyrus’ lifeless body was found by her entourage in a bathtub at her Hollywood home on Wednesday, authorities revealed. Los Angeles investigators are trying to determine the cause of death,” the fake news site claimed. “Officials refused to comment on reports that the famed actress/singer drowned from a prescription pill overdose. They have, however, made it clear that there were no signs of foul play.”

The site used fake quotes from a LA police officer and even gave a very specific time of death- 2:17 PM PST. (Do you really think you wouldn’t have heard of Miley’s death by now if it were true?)

No Internet, Casey Anthony Is Not Dead

Facebook has been awash in shares of a story about the death of Casey Anthony, the woman who in 2011 was found not guilty of murdering her young daughter in a trial that grabbed international headlines.

Could it be really true?

Well it is according to two so called “news” websites- Breaking13News.com and Now8News.com who posted identical stories.

From the two sites:

“According to “Unconfirmed reports coming out of Warren, Ohio state that the body of Casey Anthony was found in a rest stop near I-71, bludgeoned to death.  At 1:37 PM on Monday, a traveler noticed a body in the back of a pickup truck abandoned in a grassy field about 20 yards from the parking area as he was walking his dog. The man said as he approached the vehicle, there was a horrible stench in the air. He was shocked to find a young female, in her late 20’s to early 30’s, partially dismembered.”

The tale of Anthony’s untimely demise has been shared thousands times on Facebook and has been popping up on people’s news feeds for a few days now.

But Internet fact checker Snopes.com has called foul on the report, deeming it to be untrue and little more than an attempt to make money with click bait headlines.

From Snopes:

“This report is false: Casey Anthony has not died. Breaking News 13 is one of many fake news sites on the Internet that mimic the appearance of local television news outlets and publish fictitious stories masquerading as real news accounts in order to lure in readers and thereby generate social media shares and advertising revenue — and because of her controversial stature, Casey Anthony is a favorite subject for eyeball-grabbing headlines.”

Rise News called a number listed on the BreakingNews13.com website to allow the operators a chance to respond, but it did not seem to be connected.
