Dozens of Celebrities Die of Pneumonia After Performing ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
UNITED STATES (The Global Edition) – Vanilla Ice, Jeff Goldblum, Will Ferrell, John Goodman, Celine Dion, Jerry Springer are just some of the celebrities who caught pneumonia and died after performing the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” to promote public awareness of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
So far, the Ice Bucket Challenge has caused a soar in ice water related deaths among celebrities, decimating the celebrity population, and leaving some areas of the United States almost completely celebrity-free.
“Sure, public awareness and charitable donations for ALS have soared, but on the other hand we’ve lost Jon Bon Jovi, Adam Sandler, Lindsay Lohan and Taylor Swift, to name only a few, says Rick Morgan, chairman of the Fight Pneumonia Society. – We’ve got to raise awareness about this issue until it’s too late and we realize we live in a world with only a handful of show business entertainers who chose to donate money instead of pouring a bucket of ice water on their heads, catching pneumonia and dying a slow and painful deaths,” adds Morgan.
New viral video craze raises awareness about Ice Bucket Challenge induced pneumonia
Morgan also invited people to spread the word about this problem by “recording a video where they attempt to shoot an apple on top of loved one’s head or donating fifty bucks to FPS and challenge their friends to do the same.”
As the result of the campaign, pneumonia death awareness has risen significantly, and seventeen people have been shot dead.
