One user of the social media platform, a news reporter, Antoinette Lattouf, expressing her anger wrote alongside a headline from the satirical news outlet, Empire News,

"Is she tie dying a blouse? If you're going to try to misleadingly kill off the legend Betty White, learn to spell mate. #Bettywhite #Fakenews.”

The headline from Empire News has the word "Dyed" instead of "Died," and another Twitter user agreeing with Lattouf tweeted,

"LOL, tie dying a blouse. @antoinette_news, thank God Betty White is still with us."

A third person, still agreeing with the reporter, and pointing out that the fake news put White's age at 93, tweeted,

"She's also 97, not 93."

One Twitter user, using a GIF of Taraji P. Henson screaming, "I hate you," tweeted,

"To the person who had me searching #Bettywhite died."

The recent hoax is one of many associated with the actress. Since 2012, it appears once a year, and each time, fans of the Emmy winner take to social media to mourn her alleged passing, which explains why the recent one irked so much.

White, who turned 97 this January, is loved by many people around the world, and her fame and impact on television have touched several lives. Betty White was born on the 28th of the first month in 1922; the "Golden Girls" star began acting in 1939.

Although her career got derailed by World War II, she came back better and went ahead to have one of the most successful careers in Hollywood.
