It is not new that a favorite celebrity's death almost feels like a personal loss to fans, be it, Michael Jackson or Aaron Carter, fans wept the hardest. Speaking of which, an unusual hashtag has been trending on Twitter which concerned many netizens. #RIPJimmyFallon has been trending on Twitter despite the star being alive and well. The source who started this trend is still unknown. However, 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', host Fallon, resorts to the owner of Twitter to resolve this shunned chaos. 

He posted a tweet that reads, "Elon, can you fix this? #RIPJimmyFallon." While we hope he can, fans have had quite a shocking response to this trending hashtag. Some fans are giving into the trend while others seem to be justifiably "disgusted," and "annoyed" with it. Safe to say, it is a little out of the blue that the hashtag blew up so rapidly. However, one common thing mentioned in all the hate tweets was that Jimmy Fallon is "no longer funny." Is this just a joke or there is an ulterior intention? Read more to find out.

Fallon is known for his work in television as a cast member on 'Saturday Night Live' and as the host of the late-night talk show 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', which he began hosting after 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' ended. Fallon's shows are mostly labeled "warm" and "humorous." Regardless today's 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' has Anya Taylor-Joy, Glen Powell, Patti Smith, and Bruce Springsteen lined up to feature. 

However, although Fallon is noticeably very stressed about the trending hashtag, his loyal fans came to his rescue. A fan wrote, "Omg my jaw dropped I was so shocked to see that trending," while another wrote, "My heart dropped for a second." A fan said, "you are mocking the passing of a good man. for shame." A fan shared, "disgusting trend not funny." Lastly, a fan tweeted, "Y’all are kinda disgusting for this."






In January 2022, Fallon received backlash for discussing NFTs (and promoting one of his own NFTs) on his show during an interview with Paris Hilton, which may have breached conflict of interest policies set by NBC Universal's parent company Comcast; his own NFT was deduced to have most likely been purchased in November 2021 for approximately $216,000, and his promotion of it on the show could potentially boost its asking price if he decided to sell it. NBC responded to the criticism by stating that it did not believe Fallon had broken its conflict of interest rules. Safe to say 2022 has been a little rough on Fallon.
