Several people were convinced that Joe Rogan was dead after an old death hoax resurfaced online in 2022. In reality, the star is alive and well.
Social media has become a place where fake news tends to sweep in as it is hard to differentiate between what is true and what’s not.
Something similar happened on September 19 when many people were convinced that the podcast host had died. However, it is not true.
Joe Rogan is not dead
The news about Joe being dead started surfacing online after an old death hoax that claimed the same was spotted by many. Some of the posts claimed that Dana White had commented on Joe’s death.
As the words were phrased in a matter that would sound like reality it did not take a long time for people to fall victim to this hoax.
In reality, Joe is doing well and enjoying his life. If you have been following him on his social media you would have noticed that he had congratulated Gordon King Ryan on his win against Andre Galvao.
