The celebrity death hoax is something that is going to stay around as long as the Internet exists and that will likely be forever. It happens to the likes of Willie Nelson and even celebrities on a smaller scale such as Jake from State Farm. The very latest to fall victim to this hoax is that of Steve Burns, whom you may not immediately recognize by name. You’d know him better as Steve from Blue’s Clues, and he did not die in a car accident as reported.

Yes, the original guy from the kids’ show that had a blue dog named Blue roaming around and looking for clues to find lost items. Burns was on the show for seven years and starred in over 100 episodes before leaving in 2002 to pursue a music career.

Over the weekend, MSMBC News reported that 42-year-old Steve Burns tragically died in a one-car crash in Pennsylvania. A “local coroner” even confirmed his death on Friday and it was apparently due to “severe head trauma and internal injuries.”

There was even a “news” video reporting his death with a big square stating the information was “CONFIRMED.”

It may seem needless to say that MSMBC isn’t real and is a website that brings forth fake news stories for hits and shock. It’s an obvious play on MSNBC, but it has no validity to it whatsoever and neither does this story of Steve Burns’ death in a car accident.

Most people see the title of the story, such as this one, but don’t read the actual article. These “readers” share the article and it ends up getting passed around social media until thousands or even millions begin to believe the “news” is true.

Just like when everyone was sad Rue McClanahan of the Golden Girls died earlier this summer. Actually, she died in 2010, but everyone was passing around an article without reading the date.
