On TikTok, many posts are being circulated regarding Adam Sandler's death. The posts made many users believe that something was wrong with the Hollywood star and that he is dead. However, it has turned out that the rumors are completely false and Sandler is alive and well.

A social media video made the absurd allegation that the 55-year-old actor died by drowning. As the video went viral, users expressed their concerns. One user wrote on Twitter, “Hey, You okay? There's a tik tok going around saying you are dead. If so, That's really sad bc you are a great actor and I love watching movies that you star in” Later, the Tiktoker, who goes by the handle name Gio.yurr, revealed that it was nothing but a “sick joke”.

One person wrote, “I paused after I read and felt pain for a good couple of minutes.” Another commented, "Damn bro u scared the shit out of me lol.” Yet another remarked, “You kinda scared me for a sec.” Some of Sandler's admirers were heartbroken when they learned of his false death, while others were determined to keep him safe from celebrity death rumors at any cost. “I told my roommate I’d never cry over a celeb death...BUT Adam Sandler!!!! I don’t wanna live to see that day,” a person remarked.



Sandler recently paid respect to Bob Saget two days ago by writing a letter on Twitter. He wrote, “Great man. Funny as hell. Such a nice person. Love to Bob and his whole family.” He also maintains a presence on his official Instagram account, which has over 11.9 million followers. The actor was also in the spotlight lately when two of his older films, 'The Longest Yard' and 'Just Go With It', were among Netflix's top ten most viewed films. 


In the past, we have seen celebrities being frequently targeted by these kinds of hoaxes. In 2009, it was reported that Jeff Goldblum had died after jumping over a cliff in New Zealand. Fans of the 63-year-old Jurassic Park actor hurried to express their sympathies, only to find out that the announcement was a terrible prank. 


In similar rumors, in 2011 it was claimed that Dwayne Johnson had fallen off a mountain. He retaliated on Twitter saying, "I would love to meet the person who is starting rumors of my death — to show them how a dead foot feels up their a**.” In 2012, pranksters started the 'RIP Morgan Freeman' Facebook page. The 79-year-old actor took to Facebook to put an end to the rumors, writing, "Like Mark Twain, I keep reading that I have died. I hope those stories are not true... But if they are, I'm happy to report that my afterlife seems identical to my life when I was alive."
