The Fridge lives: William 'Refrigerator' Perry is 'alive and well'

SHARE The Fridge lives: William 'Refrigerator' Perry is 'alive and well'

Social media often kills people who are alive.

William “The Fridge” Perry was one such target on Wednesday morning.

The first reports came via Twitter from @ClemsonTigerNet, linking to a story at tigernet.com that didn’t exist.

Didn’t matter. Hundreds began re-tweeting the unsubstantiated link, and the false death report of the legendary Bears player quickly spread.

It’s no secret that Perry has struggled with his health recently, lending more credence to the bogus tweet.

In a matter of minutes, the false report was shot down when Clemson football tweeted:

Michael Dean Perry, William’s brother, also confirmed his brother was alive to the Clemson Alumni Association.

Tigernet.com later deleted the tweet, but their original story link sadly revealed this:
