Suge Knight Is Alive: American Executive's Death Hoax Debunked!
A disreputable website began circulating the news of Suge Knight's death on Facebook to the clamor of many fans.
The now-deleted Facebook page, R.I.P. Suge Knight, garnered close to a million likes when they began spreading the news of Suge Knight's death. Their about page read a long message many mistook as Suge Knight's obituary.
However, following a spree of condolences on Facebook and frenzy on Twitter, fans quickly found out that the news was false as the news of Knight's death was being publicized solely on this fan-made Facebook page instead of news media outlets and publications. The Facebook page promptly shut down after enough fans began reporting the page.
This social media hoax isn't the first time that news of Suge Knight's death has become popular. It seems to happen regularly, and a google search will reveal articles about Suge Knight's death hoaxes almost every couple of years.
These hoaxes are likely because Knight has been in trouble with the law since the late 90s and has spent more than a fair amount of time in jail. He is in jail right now, following a 2018 court decision where he pled no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a hit-and-run in 2015, where they sentenced Knight to 28 years in prison.
The former music executive is serving time in Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility.
