Click it, and you’ll be downloading malware onto your PC or mobile device that’s capable of stealing your information.  So don’t click. If you have clicked this link (or one for any of the other celebrity death hoaxes that have been going around), you need to do a security scan on your PC and mobile devices and then change the passwords for Facebook and all of your other accounts. Run the scan first, because if you don’t remove the malware, it can just detect your new passwords as you type them in.
