Actor William Shatner is calling out Facebook over an ad that said he was dead. The “Star Trek” legend found out about his alleged death yesterday by a fan on Twitter who tagged the actor saying "I thought you might want to know you're dead."
The post included a picture from a sponsored advertisement on Facebook's messenger app that said the Sci-Fi actor was found dead. Shatner called out the social media site on Twitter saying "Hey @facebook isn't this your messenger app?," adding "Thought you were doing something about this?" The company took notice shortly after and contacted Shatner saying they removed the ad.
The Shatner hoax comes as Facebook is under fire for a data breach and continued reports of fake news. Yesterday was Shatner's 87th birthday.
