Home Alone star Macauley Culkin – victim of Internet ‘dead’ hoax


Child star, Macauley Culkin, famed for his two appearances as Kevin McAllistair in the Home Alone movies, was the victim of an Internet hoax which declared him as having died.

This is the second time this year that the actor has been subjected to the hoax. A Facebook page quickly gained a massive 50,000 likes within a matter of hours before being shutdown.

The ‘tribute page’ read:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Thursday (November 06, 2014), our beloved actor Macaulay Culkin passed away.”Macaulay Culkin was born on August 26, 1980 in New York.

He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”

Culkin’s agent had to release a statement to say the actor was alive and well.

Thankfully for that, eh? How could any of us watch Home Alone this Christmas otherwise!
