Is David Suzuki Dead? Fake Death News Of Canadian Host Debunked

Published

Is David Suzuki Dead or Alive? No! Canadian academic, Science broadcaster, and environmental activist, David Suzuki is not dead, it is a hoax.

The fake information about his death emanated from a misleading Facebook advertisement from one “Centro de Expertamente Carabobo page“.

A Facebook user who described what the misleading advert entails said it was made by a clickbait site which when clicked suggests he’s having a flame of war with Kevin O’Leary over his CBD gummies business.

The post read: We can file this under new directions in weird fake news and marketing. First, the clickbait headline suggests David Suzuki is dead.

If you click the link, however, it actually suggests he’s having a flame war with Kevin O’Leary over his CBD gummies business. Of course, Suzuki doesn’t have a CBD gummies business, this is some other scam that stole his image in order to make it seem like he is offering a line of CBD gummies.

My favorite part of the post is where the fake Suzuki explains that he started this line of gummies as a way to “give back” for all of the benefits he has received in life.

Is David Suzuki Dead?

No, David Suzuki is very much alive and in good health. The misleading information shared on social media about the 86-year-old Award-winning geneticist and broadcaster David Suzuki who co-founded the David Suzuki Foundation in 1990 is false.

Comments we gathered from Facebook confirmed that many people have been scammed through the clickbait ad.

yes, I was scammed as well. Informed it was posted as $39.99 but when the received bill was $230.00. Emailed to cancel the order & also called CC to dispute the transaction; a Facebook user posted.
