Did actor Michael Clarke Duncan, famous for his role in the 1999 movie "The Green Mile," die? Yes, that's true... but it happened in 2012. News of his death went viral again in 2023 after a clickbait website (likely from Pakistan) reposted an undated obituary for the actor that appears to have been stolen from a Canadian news website.
The article (archived here) was published by a website named "DarsaalPakistan" (using the deceptive domain name bbcnewsz.com) on January 25, 2023, under the title "'Green Mile' Actor Michael Clarke Duncan Dies At 54." It opened:
