If the year 2020 has already been complicated due to the coronavirus and other events that have impacted on society, the alleged disappearance of the Annabelle doll quickly became a trend in social networks as another phenomenon to make current affairs worse. But in reality, it is a Fake News.

Some media replicated a series of internet rumors that the doll had disappeared from the box in which it is located at the Warren Museum of Occultism, without citing sources regarding the information.

Unverified information quickly became a trend on networks such as Twitter and Instagram, where memes and other similar information soon appeared.

According to the Brazilian newspaper Globo, everything would have started to spread after Warner Bros. released a video with the “present” of the doll (the one used in the movies) in the recording studios.

In the images, you can see how she gets bored in this period where coronavirus infections continue to rise and finally “goes” in a golf cart wearing a mask.

The foregoing would have intersected with information that emerged in 2019 regarding the death of Lorraine Warren when it was ensured that the doll had moved inside the museum that she kept in her home, which accumulated hundreds of items that she collected together with her husband during his involvement in paranormal acts or even exorcisms.

The fake news had the greatest impact in Brazil, where several users came out to deny the information, which despite that, was replicated.
