Rumors have been spreading that Daniel Radcliffe tested positive for Coronavirus after a tweet from a fake BBC account went viral.
A hoax account tweeted out, “BREAKING: Daniel Radcliffe tests positive for coronavirus. The actor is said to be the first famous person to be publicly confirmed.”
A rep for Daniel tells JustJared.com that the rumors are “not true” and the tweet has since been deleted.
Fans who clicked into the fake Twitter account easily noticed it was a hoax since the account only had 125 followers and the link provided in the tweet didn’t lead to an actual article. The tweet still garnered over 1,000 likes and hundreds of retweets before it was deleted.
