Is the News of Drew Brees Death True? Know This Before Making Any Assumptions

Drew Brees Death: Lightning appears to have missed former Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who is doing fine. Mainly because he was spared a lightning strike. Katherine Terrell tweeted, “I just texted Drew Brees.” He didn’t get hit by lightning, he said and is fine. Okay, that’s a load off my mind.

How did Brees manage to avoid getting hit by lightning during a real-life lightning storm?

In the event that it was faked as many now suspect Brees and PointsBet are fully deserving of the backlash, they’re about to receive. Each year, lightning kills thousands of people. Using it as part of a marketing push is fraught with the potential for offense. If it was all an elaborate hoax, Brees’s many admirers, followers and former teammates spent a good chunk of Friday morning worrying about his well-being.

PointsBet is having a hard time competing with other sportsbooks, which is common knowledge. But if it was all staged, this is not the way to give it’s brand the prominence it never had. And Brees will get some flak for his role in setting up the fake, as he should.

QB Drew Brees is still with us. Not long after a video showing Brees being struck by lightning went viral, the sportsbook tweeted out a second video. This one shows Part 2 of what was by this point obviously an attempt to generate buzz about the new promotion. After his fake strike, Brees says, What’s up guys, Drew Brees here as if he has just come to in the back of an ambulance. A simple update: “I’m fine, and I wanted you to know that.”
