Was there a Flappy Bird suicide? The suddenly popular app might have caused the creator to kill himself…if recent rumors are to be believed.
According to a new report, app creator Dong Nguyen, was found with a gunshot wound to the head in his California home. Reports claim that his death was due to problems with the app and happened right after he took the app off the android market.
But is any of this actually true? Is Dong Nguyen actually dead?
Actually, he’s not.
Apparently, someone decided to make a fake news story about the death of the app creator after he tweeted that he “Cannot do this anymore”. What he meant was that he couldn’t do the app anymore but people took it the wrong way, obviously, and some sick person decided to make a death hoax.
Luckily though, the Flappy Bird creator is still alive and well–though the app is definitely off the market.
It is kind of weird though that someone would go after an app creator and not a celebrity. Usually those are the type of people who get death hoaxes written about them. Do you think this is a new trend?
