Another day another death rumor. Thankfully Tyler Perry has cleared this one up.
Over the last few days rumors have been swirling that House Of Payne actress Cassi Davis died from lung cancer.
On Monday (Feb. 20), the director who has worked with Davis on a several films and tv shows took to Instagram to inform fans that the beloved actress is alive and well.
“After I’ve gotten several calls from people giving me their condolences and I didn’t know what they were talking about, I was sent this article that’s going around. I don’t know how she could have died and nobody told me or her. So I called her and asked her was she dead and she said hell no!,” he wrote.
“Can whoever is responsible for this please stop you better be careful when you speak death over a child of God. This woman is loved by millions and you’re hurting a lot of people. Cassi is fine living her best life with no worries, no cares, no social media, and no drama. She’s waiting to shoot the next season of House of Payne.”
Perry also took to his Instagram story to share a screenshot of Cassi’s death trending on Google. He captioned the post, “Look how lies can trend!! Lord help us all.”
The viral hoax started after a Facebook user shared a link to an article claiming that the actress had died of lung cancer. Within a couple of hours word spread not only on Facebook but on TikTok and Twitter as well.
Now that things have been cleared up, folks are relieved but also annoyed that death hoax are such a persistent thing online.
We too are fed up … this has to stop in 2023!
