Good news. Hudson Valley Celeb Jimmy Fallon is not dead. However, many on social media last night thought the "Tonight Show" host had passed away.

The Saugerties High School graduate took to Twitter to ask Elon Musk to fix the mistake.

As of this writing, Wednesday morning, Musk has not responded to Fallon.

One Twitter user believes this tweet is what started the rumor. "Gone but not forgotten. Rest easy king Sept 19, 1974-Nov 15, 2022 #RIPJimmyFallon," Eclipse Shade tweeted.

Clearly, that picture is not of Jimmy Fallon. It's a photo of James Corden. He's the host of The Late Late Show with James Corden.

It appears Twitter user Eclipse Shade tweeted RIP Jimmy Fallon as some sort of joke.

After the tweet went viral, the Twitter user responded with, "This was a surprise. Thank you everyone for the likes and retweets If you like stupid tweets like this feel free to follow me idk," Eclipse Shade tweeted.

In another response, the Twitter user confirmed the tweet was made up.

"Since this is seriously blowing up, thought I'd just comment that this is satire. Fallon is alive and hope he's doing well," Eclipse Shade wrote.

Twitter has seen a rise in disinformation since Musk took over the company last month.
