INTERNET HOAX: Aaron Rodgers Dies in Single Vehicle Car Crash

By November 23, 2013

Follow me on:

This is a hoax:
Aaron Rogers Dead Hoax

Not only is Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers alive and well, he spells his last name with a "d" — as in Aaron Rodgers, not Aaron Rogers. The "news story" spreading via social media that claims he died in a car crash is false, a prank, a hoax.

Previous examples of prank articles from the same website (www.fakeawish.com) include:
