News That James Gandolfini's Death Is a Hoax Is a Hoax
This, sadly, is true: actor James Gandolfini died today at age 51.

Which means that a widely shared Internet report claiming news of Gandolfini's death is a hoax is itself a hoax.

Even as major media organizations provided confirmation that he was dead, confused Internet users latched onto false claims that Gandolfini was still alive. Here are some examples of the Facebook chatter surrounding the news:

So, is Gandolfini dead or what? Is it a hoax or is it real?
I just read that James Gandolfini died of a heart attack, in Italy, at 51 today. Then I read it was a hoax??
Why are people saying its a hoax and that Tony Soprano is alive ??? This is totally not even right.. What's wrong with people ???
Gandolfini is alive and well....... MAJOR media corporations said they confirmed his death. Wow ! Hoax !
The meta-hoax was published on a self-styled "satire" site called Mediamass.net whose stated mission is "to expose with humour, exaggeration and ridicule the contemporary mass production and mass consumption that we observe."

Mission unaccomplished.
