LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23 (IANS) The racy series The Simpsons has not actually predicted the date of Queen Elizabeth II’s death, according to reality checkers.

The misleading case that the show, unbelievable for its wise, scary guesses, predicted the demise of the supremacy has been the subject of numerous hoax recordings and photos that have turned into a web buzz on TikTok and various stages, according to Lineup.

In one edited TikTok video, which currently has over 26 million perspectives, an animated variant of Sovereign Elizabeth II is shown lying in a coffin under a panel looking at “Elizabeth II: 1926-2022”.

The clip also shows a behind-the-scenes poster of an actual The Simpsons movie, showing the date September 8, 2022, the day King died.

Since the demise of the Sovereign, recordings containing a bogus image of her lying in a final resting place have circulated on TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and elsewhere, usually with accompanying headlines that inaccurately express that The Simpsons predicted the death of Queen Elizabeth II .

In any case, no episode of The Simpsons has always included the dates of the sovereign’s death, according to fact-checking societies including PolitiFact and Lead Stories.

An earlier hoaxer used a similar image of Donald Trump lying in a coffin to dishonorably ensure that the show predicted his death from the coronavirus.

The Sovereign has appeared as a character on ‘The Simpsons’ multiple times, according to fan-organized Wikisimpsons, and they remember the 2003 episode ‘The Regina Discourses’ from season 15 where the governor’s chariot was completed by Homer.

The Simpsons widely anticipated other important occasions.

In a 2000 episode, the series included a joke that Donald Trump would become the leader of the United States.

Moreover, in 1998, The Simpsons predicted Disney’s purchase of Twentieth Century Fox, nearly twenty years before the Mouse House swallowed up 21st Century Fox.

Meanwhile, other debunked claims about future-looking ‘The Simpsons’ include that the show predicted the coronavirus pandemic and serious misfortune at last year’s Travis Scott Astroworld celebration in Houston, according to a fact-finding Snopes website.
