The Question: If you’re on TikTok right now, you might come across multiple posts talking about Adam Sandler passing away. Many are under the impression that something has happened to the Hollywood actor and that he might be dead, but it isn’t true.
For the past few months, several TikTok users are reacting to news surrounding Adam’s made-up death.
However, on watching a few more TikToks that date back to 2021, we realized that the rumors were started as a part of a trend on the platform, created specifically to see people’s reaction when told Adam is dead.
These TikToks make baseless claims, like saying the actor died by drowning or met with an accident, before revealing in the end that it was nothing but a sick joke.
