Shut up, internet. Didn’t you learn anything from the Banksy arrest hoax?

About 22 hours ago, a clearly fake news website the National Report announced that legendary cult filmaker and known arts person John Waters “dropped dead at 67” in the morning. That’s funny. He must have recovered quickly, because we totally saw him at the Armory Press/VIP preview later that day.

Sure, Waters confirmed that he’s alive by email to Insider, but just in case you were worried anyway, don’t cry, baby. Here he is, safe, sound and with a little bit of lipstick on his collar.
