This Hugh Hefner Article Shows Why Pre-writing Obituaries Is Not A Good Idea

Published on 30 September, 2017 at 7:50 pm By

If you’ve ever thought how websites get obituaries up so damn quick, well, here is the long-hidden secret: their stories are most often pre-written. Thus, when the famous personality dies, they publish the story the next second. This is a nasty way to become the first people to break the news.

The same thing happened when the founder of the ‘Playboy’ magazine, Hugh Hefner, died, but this pre-writing strategy backfired.

Shortly after news of Hugh Hefner’s death broke, a Hollywood reporter, who had pre-written the obituary of the ‘Playboy’ founder, mistakenly clicked the publish button before making necessary changes.

Hence, the article got published in the pre-written format and it was full of loopholes. Here are some of the lines of the article.

    • The publish date is listed as “12/31/1969.”
    • Hefner’s age of death is reported as “XX.”
    • The details of his death read as follows: “Hefner died WHEN and WHERE of WHAT, according to WHOM.”

People noticed his goof up and trolled the online portal like a boss.
