In the past few months, the culture of cancellation has grown stronger than ever on the Internet and there seems to be a growing power when it comes to declining celebrities on social media. Simon Cowell’s name appeared on the Internet on June 25 in a shocking twist. #RIPSimonCowell trending on twitter. Unbelievable, isn’t it?
No, Cowell is not dead. Although no media reports or public statement could have been created, it could have started after the wrong edits on Cowell’s Wikipedia page he died on June 25. However, the Wikipedia edit appears to have been deleted later. Another Twitter user revealed how he was said to have been “under” in his presentation. “Okay, but why does Google actually say ‘Simon Cowell WAS’ !!!! #ripSimonCowell.”
At 60, he is alive and well. The television personality and entrepreneur has been known as the most popular judge in ‘America’s Got Talent’ since 2016. The founder and chief executive of British entertainment company Syco, he was also a part of ‘Pop Idol’, ‘The X Factor’, ‘American Idol’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. The conversation stemmed from a Twitter trend that left everyone confused. “IS SIMON COWELL FINISHED? WHY IS THIS ACCESS ON? One went on:” I Googling to see that Simon Cowell is actually dead #RIPSimonCowell. “
Apparently, it started with camps of fans trying to stop him. “#ripSimonCowell is not dead but he is a fake to death by * e,” read one twitter and another said, “#RipSimonCowell this joke !! started on jojotwt as a joke among friends! he is still alive, I’m sure, if anyone you were wondering. “
Many are wondering why the hashtag goes away. “Wondering if he was canceled for his paedo mate #ripSimonCowell or if he found out why Tulisa’s case was released as soon as he brought his name to it,” one Twitter user tweeted, and another said, “#ripSimonCowell * HE’S NOT MENTAL REALLY, PLEASE THINK HER HERE WHEN HE OPENS TWITTER *. “Explaining how true it is, one tweeted follower said:” This #ripSimonCowell is a hoax. I know, you know this, anyway. I failed to be interested in the text of what the entertainment world would be without – @SimonCowell after I made the decision to become a 6 year old (his age, when I was born), for 1 day. “
In admiration for a whole generation, one wrote, “#ripSimonCowell This is why this generation doesn’t get what they want. They want to die to people every five minutes. F *** I am not joking. I’m not his biggest fan. But I don’t run and wish people were dead.”
