John Lewis Death- Obituary News is Fake, Rep John Lewis is Not Dead.
Another conspiracy theory circulating on social media is that American democratic party black caucus leader John Lewis has died.
John Robert Lewis is an American politician and civil rights leader. He is the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 5th congressional district, serving in his 17th term in the House, having served since 1987, and is the dean of the Georgia congressional delegation.
This will not be the first time an American celebrity or politician was speculated to have died by social media users.
Few months ago there was a fake news that made headlines that Wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson has died, the actor posted a statement on his social media account to debunk the rumor.
John Lewis is fine and alive .
He’s still with us, still fighting for us, still inspring generations of us. Love you John Lewis! 💜
