Brad Pitt may be getting a divorce, but he’s not dead, and if you see a post to that effect on Facebook, don’t click on it.
A spokesperson from Facebook confirms the post is a hoax, and could lead to your account being hacked. The fake article was circulating Facebook on Tuesday with the headline “RIP Brad Pitt.” Facebook says the post is part of a phishing scam.
Clicking on the link takes you to a prompt for your Facebook username and password. Entering that information on the wrong screen gives hackers control of your account.
