Jimmy Fallon asks Elon Musk for help after death hoax goes viral


Jimmy Fallon is alive and well after a hashtag suggesting his death went viral on Tuesday night.

To help rectify the death hoax, the ‘Tonight Show’ host enlisted the help of Elon Musk, Tweeter“Elon, can you fix this? #RIPJimmyFallon.

Musk has yet to respond to the late night host’s request, but that may be because Fallon didn’t specifically tag him.

Musk, 51, has faced a host of problems since taking over the social media, which was previously forced to suspend its Twitter Blue launch after so-called ‘verified’ account impersonators spiked .

Model Gigi Hadid quickly deactivated her Twitter account soon after, calling the platform “a cesspool of hate and bigotry”.

“For a long time, but especially with its new management,” Hadid wrote on Musk’s Instagram. “It is increasingly becoming a cesspool of hatred and bigotry, and its [sic] not a place I want to be a part of.

Hadid, 27, apologized to her fans on the platform, writing that she loved connecting with them.

“I can’t stay, this is a safe place for anyone,” she continued, “or a social platform that will do more good than harm.”

Toni Braxton previously announced that she would also be leaving the social platform in light of the changes and massive layoffs.

“I am shocked and appalled by some of the ‘freedom of speech’ I have seen on this platform since its acquisition. Hate speech under the veil of ‘freedom of speech’ is unacceptable; therefore, I choose to stay off Twitter as it is no longer a safe space for me, my sons and other POCs,” she wrote last month.

Shonda Rhimes, Sara Bareilles and Téa Leoni also said goodbye to Twitter in October.
