In recent months, music celebrities are most often targeted by Global with death stories concerning “Route 80?. In July, David Guetta was fictitiously listed dead in a car crash on Route 80. Then the same thing happened to DJ Tiesto. To no surprise, the same fake death story even exists for Armin Van Buuren.
The story begins with a fabricated template. It then adds in a series of nonsensical statements like “Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that Ronaldinho lost control”. There is no such department called “Highway Safety Investigators”, nor is there a “Local Team News 9″.
Then the story simply dynamically changes the date automatically to Sunday. The fake story is months, if not years, old. The false report might bare a date stamp of today. But that’s fake as well. The date automatically changes itself daily.
In real life, Ronaldinho rejoined his nation’s team last September. As reported on LALATE, Ronaldinho helped lead his country to a 1-0 win in Brazil vs Ghana that month. The following month, in Brazil vs Mexico, Ronaldinho tied up the match with another goal as well.
Ronaldinho has been with Atlético Mineiro since earlier this year. He previously had played with Flamengo for one year, Milan for two years, and Barcelona for five years.
Former teammate Rui Costa once said of Ronaldinho “There are not many players who can offer goal scoring passes like he can. He is just marvelous. He is a rare case of an assist man who can provide the ball from anywhere.” Ronaldinho is not dead, nor is Eddie Murphy, Usher, or David Guetta.
