The Internet is the world’s prominent source of information and simultaneously, it can also be one of the most unreliable sources of information because often we can see people creating rumors and hoax about something that has never happened. We along with everybody else fell for a hoax related to one of our favorite TV host Don Francisco not once but twice.
How sinful those people are who announced Don Francisco died in 2003 on April fool’s day. This hoax made us forget that the day was April 1st, a day that is supposed to be full of jokes. A lot of his fans panicked only to find some relief later when it was revealed that it was an April fool’s joke.
This wasn’t all.
In 2013, this news came again nd along with it came the similar panic. This made them forget that something like this has happened before too. And many people fell for the trick and believed that he died because he was already 72 years old that time and 72 was a pretty old number for humans.
Later, his team, who were in charge of managing the Sábado Gigante, cleared off this rumor denying that and posted Francisco’s getting ready for the show, ready to jog and about to have dinner photos on Facebook. They stated that he was perfectly fine and healthy.

"For those of you who insist with the false rumors surrounding Don Francisco, here we see him happy, just now, getting ready to have dinner. He sends a big hug and wishes for you to have a good night."
In addition, a vine was also made about the reaction that a Spanish grandma would have to Francisco’s death.
