Adele, like many other celebrities, has fallen victim to celebrity death hoaxes and conspiracy theories. It’s amazing what a rumor can turn into when celebrities are involved, and the “Hello” singer is another example.
One of the first times Adele was reported “dead” was back in 2012. It started as a Twitter hoax, that soon grew into the trending “#RIPAdele” hashtag. Mainly, the hashtag was full of confused fans.
Here are some examples of Twitter reactions to the death hoax from the time, according to IBTimes:
“RIP Adele? What theeee………. SERIOUSLY NOT FUNNY! Twitter needs to stop killing people.”
“That awkward moment when RIP Adeleis trending, and she probably doesn’t even know she died.”
“RIP Adele? Trending topic? People can be really stupid sometimes.”
“So far in the last week, RIP Adele, RIP Demi Moore,RIP Cher have all trended. Twitter needs to stop killing people.”
Another time Adele fell victim to a celebrity death hoax coincided with the music video release for her single, “Hello.” According to Snopes, the hoax originated on Facebook, but really took off when the singer released her music video. The comments section began to fill with more and more comments about her death. At the end of the day though, these false commenters only added to the amounts of views the award-winning music video received. It has reached over 11 million views so far.
As far as conspiracy theories go, Adele is allegedly a major member of the Illuminati. In fact, people were talking about this theory on Twitter in the wake of her 2017 Grammys victories.
