As people increasingly receive news via social media outlets including Facebook and Twitter, artists and their teams face a growing challenge in getting news to their audience: internet hoaxes. Alan Jackson is the latest artist to be caught up in a social media hoax.
A Facebook page was set up under Jackson’s name recently, with a fake story involving the entertainer’s daughter Alexandra.
Jackson’s publicist has confirmed the story is false. A screenshot of the post is below.
Alan Jackson‘s official Facebook page has nearly 2 million followers. Garth Brooks, Reba, Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift are a few of the other artists who have dealt with various internet hoaxes.
