Comedian Katt Williams NOT Confirmed Dead After Drug Overdose

Fact Check

  • by: Jeremy Smith

There's a trending hoax story on the interwebs stating that comedian Katt Williams has died from a drug overdose. Though the story comes from a known satire site, many people are unaware of that and continue to share the NOT TRUE story.

The hoax story starts with this gem "Comedian Katt Williams Was Found Unconscious This Morning In His Hotel Room By His Manager." Continuing with the nonsense:

Katt Williams and his manager reportedly had an argument the night before about his recent drug issue. Apparently he got very aggressive towards his manager so he left his hotel room to avoid getting into a fight with Williams. When he returned the next morning he found him unconscious on the floor and immediately called 911. When paramedics arrived they announced him dead at the scene. He had overdosed on crack cocaine and police also found meth and weed in his room.

Though he has been in the news lately for his erratic behavior, Katt Williams is definitely alive and doing his thing.
