The passing of Glee star Cory Monteith has spurred a round of internet hoaxes including an alleged photo of the actor’s girlfriend Lea Michele embracing her fellow co-star’s casket at an airport.
It did not take long for the photo (and others like it) to go viral… but rest assured, the photo is a FAKE!
In fact, the touching moment was captured in 2012 when a distraught widow received her fallen Army husband, Spc. Jason Edens, whose casket was wrapped in an American flag.
Don’t be fooled!
Monteith’s body remains in the custody of the British Columbia coroner’s office which is expected to conduct an autopsy Monday.
