A video went viral in WhatsApp circles, saying that the legendary Hollywood actor-director Clint Eastwood was dead.
However, Eastwood at 92 is very much alive.
The video was titled: “Sad News/RIP Clint Eastwood/Goodbye Clint Eastwood”.
It just shocked many of his fans.
One of them without verifying said, “This is incredible. Shocking. He was iconic.”
However, a film critic rebuffed the news saying: “I don’t think so. It’s a hoax.”
Eastwood revolutionised the whole spirit of Westerns, transiting from violence to peace-driven messages.
He was a proponent for a very different America: a nation free of gun violence.
