Why is Nike Tech Kid Dead trending?

The young lad, known as the Nike Tech Kid, became a hit on social media after being turned into a meme.

He went viral when people started joking that he was in all the Nike ads.

However, it started trending again in December 2022 – albeit for worrying reasons.

Rumors online have suggested the boy has died, with one false report claiming he “sadly passed away”.

In completely false reports, an alleged news agency said the cause of death was suicide.

The Nike Tech Kid rumor is one in a long line of celebrity death hoaxes.

Fake reports that Eminem, Cher and Arnold Schwarzenegger were dead all started trending online in December 2022.

Other victims of the gruesome hoax included Al Roker, who was hospitalized in November 2022, Hollywood actor Kevin Bacon and rapper 50 Cent.

Where did the rumors come from?

In a video posted on TikTok, a user shared the claims.

The video description read: “At 8:34pm the infamous ‘Nike Tech Kid’ sadly died by suicide.

“Investigators concluded that this was because the parents had a violent divorce that was appropriate to the situation.”

However, the headline or the journalist allegedly responsible for publishing the article is not displayed by the search.

The highly unreliable video has led many people to believe the rumors circulating.
