Duane Chapman took to Instagram on Monday to show the latest example of a fake news article floating around claiming he died.

The fake article’s headline read: “DUANE. ‘DOG CHAPMAN’. Died of SUICIDE After Depression Attack on his Sickness.. I BBCNEWS.” The featured image was a black-and-white image of Dog with an “RIP” graphic that claimed he died in 2019.

A spam website tried to pose as BBC News to get clicks. However, you can see that the story’s URL is actually from a bogus website.

Fans were relieved to know Dog was still alive and well, but admitted the bounty hunter’ Instagram post abount the fake news scared them for a second.

“Dude the article scared me until I realized I just saw you a few a weeks ago in 2020…Haters going to hate,” one fan wrote.

“I seriously almost had a heart attack! Don’t do that to us!,” a second fan wrote.

“OMG my heart dropped,” a third added.

The fake news seemingly capitalizes on the fact that he was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism in the heart after his wife, Beth Chapman, died in 2019. He’s been battling depression, as well, after Beth’s death. As he summed up in a FOX 31 interview, it was if he had a “broken heart” after he lost Beth.
