Reports of Colin Robinson’s Death Seen as Genuine?

I mean, the site at the end of the link says outright that it isn’t an obituary, so there’s that. Rather it seems to be some sort of aggregate site that picks up death notices posted elsewhere, like on social media, and then shares them without verification, either perpetrating a rumor (in the cases where the individual really has not died) or getting ahead of any “official” report on the matter. It may be a fan service exclusively. I don’t know and, to be honest at the risk of sounding assy, don’t care. The simple fact that it’s being reported as a legitimate suspected death, a legit rumor of a legit celebrity death, is funny to me. I would dearly love for whomever, person or bot, put this report together to have mistakenly thought Colin Robinson was a real person and not a character on a television show. (According to the site, the report was compiled by a dude named John Okoro, who “is a Seasoned Journalist, scriptwriter, Movie producer/Director and Showbiz consultant.He [sic] is the founder and CEO of the multi Media conglomerate, Celebrities Deaths News, specializing in celebrities deaths news and obituariesHe [sic] is a 2018 [sic] He has a degree in Political Science and Mass Communication.” Yeah. Okay, then.

It’s a clickbait site trying to cash in on rumors of celebrity deaths to get your clicks. That much is obvious. What isn’t so much obvious, and as a result is so much the funny (gads, now I’m writing like “John Okoro”!), is whether or not this clickbait site thinks Colin Robinson is a legit celebrity.
