A fake Facebook memorial page was set up on 6 November, stating that the Home Alone star had died. The page has since been removed, but not before it fooled people into thinking that Macaulay, who now plays in a band called Pizza Underground, is dead. Many people took to social media to express their shock and sadness at his “death”. The rumour was killed by his representatives, but Macaulay also took to Instagram to dispel the death hoax in a more humorous manner. The 34-year-old uploaded two photos, referencing the movie Weekend at Bernie's.
In the 1989 hit movie, two work colleagues find their boss dead, and fearing that they’ll be implicated in his death, pretend that he’s still alive.
Just to be sure, Macaulay also Instagrammed a few more photos to prove he’s alive and kicking.
