Don’t worry, Daily Show fans Trevor Noah isn’t dead. The website Houston News published an article claiming the comedian was shot dead while greeting fans after a show. If the story sounds familiar, it is the same way up and coming star Christina Grimme died in 2016.
In fact, Houston News took the details of Grimme’s death last year and plugged Trevor’s name into it.
The Daily Show host posted on Twitter shortly after the news was “breaking” to confirm that he is in fact alive. Not sure how his ratings are though, never watched the Comedy Central program since Jon Stewart left.
File this one under “Fake News.”
