Ex-Black Cap involved in bizarre online death hoax


//

Former New Zealand allrounder Nathan McCullum has been forced into a social media post after being involved in a bizarre death hoax.

McCullum was forced into a Twitter post after a number of social media accounts falsely claimed that he had passed away, with one even suggesting that the news had been confirmed by his own wife.

Incredibly, the prankster took another step forward by editing McCullum’s Wikipedia page to show that he had passed away, before the 38-year-old ended all the madness.

“I am alive and kicking more than ever before,” McCullum posted on his own Twitter account.

“Not sure where this news has come from but this is fake. Love you all.”

While McCullum seemed to take the hoax well, his brother, former Black Caps skipper Brendon McCullum, was less than impressed.

“Tonight someone decided via social media to release that my brother passed away,” McCullum tweeted.

“I’m on a flight back to New Zealand and my heart broke! None of it is true!

“Whoever put this out there, I’ll find you! Somewhere, somehow.”

McCullum appeared in 84 one-day internationals and 63 Twenty20s for New Zealand prior to his retirement in 2016.
