Kirk Douglas is not dead.
We all know that some unfortunate soul at all the major tabloids and news agencies has the task of writing the obits and doing the death reel of all the old celebs. That’s how they are able to roll them out so quickly after a death is announced. Just add a couple dates and your good to go (so to speak).
People Magazine made a huge mistake yesterday, when by mistake they posted Kirk Douglas’ obit. Headlined “DO NOT PUB.” Whoops, someone published it.
And don’t think you can pull a fast one on Twitter, they are watching, and they’ll catch it.
