Fake news of Clint Eastwoodâ€™s death does social media rounds
Amid all the blabber that Donald Trump was famous for, there was one point he made that needs pondering: fake news. He kept drilling it into the ears of a media that was all too biased against his views.
Well, there was evidence of it on Saturday morning, when a video did the rounds of WhatsApp circles, saying that the legendary director Clint Eastwood was dead. Eastwood is 92 years old and very much alive.Â
The video was titled: Sad News/RIP Clint Eastwood/Goodbye Clint Eastwood.â€™
It just shocked many of his fans. One of them without checking said, â€œThis is incredible. Shocking. He was iconic.â€
However, a film critic, when he heard of the news, said, â€œI donâ€™t think so. Itâ€™s a hoax.â€
Eastwood revolutionised the whole spirit of Westerns, transiting from violence to peace-driven messages. He was a proponent for a very different America: a nation free of gun violence.
