Hoax Alert: 'Life Alert & Chill' At Nursing Home Is NOT Real

Fact Check

  • by: Maarten Schenk

The popular 'Netflix and Chill' internet meme has spawned another hoax article. After National Report's fake claims about Planned Parenthood and 'Netflix and Pill', fake news site Now8News gets in on the action with 'Life Alert & Chill'.

According to their story 'Norma Watson' and 'Harold Gilli', two residents at the 'Shady Creek Senior Home', decided to get promiscuous and engage into a bit of 'chill' time in an empty room resulting into a pair of dentures getting stuck on a part of the male anatomy. Paramedics had to get involved to set things right, causing pain and shame for the unfortunate victim.

Just like any other 'news' on Now8News the story is as fake as a three dollar bill. Or did you really believe their claim about McDonald's closing 17,000 restaurants or their horror story about a man eating a teenage boy in a haunted house attraction?
