No, Robert Downey Jr is NOT moving to Hereford

Of course he's not.

But sometime last night the following post starting bouncing around Facebook newsfeeds like a video of a cat doing the macarena.


Any over-excited Iron Man fans who put down their figurines long enough to Google 'Daily News 11' would find a line in their About Us section that states: "Daily News 11 is a fantasy site. Most articles on are satire or pure fantasy."

A bit more Googling and you'd find a whole host of identical articles claiming "Super-famous Celeb X is moving to Tiny Country Town Y." They're all "tired of the LA lifestyle", apparently. 


Brad and Angelina are going to chuck it all in and become cowboys in Kentucky, Bieber's setting up a sweet home in Alabama. Hell, even RDJ was slated as moving to Bath as recently as two weeks ago.

"I’ve been to Hereford, England a couple of times over the years and the people there are real… they’re genuine, and yeah every community has its problems but the people there are good, decent people and they care about their community," Daily News 11 quotes the Sherlock Holmes star as saying.

Apparently chief among the problems is gullibility. And so, to the following people, please get in touch - I've got these great magic beans, and I'll cut you a good deal. Honest, guv.

The lesson here is clear - you can't believe everything you read online, unless it's on Herefordshire Live.
