If you see a Facebook post about the death of Brad Pitt, don't click on it!

A spokesperson for the social media site says it's a hoax.

A fake article, with the headline "RIP Brad Pitt," has been making the rounds on social media and the spokesperson says it's part of a phishing scam.

Clicking on the link in the post brings up a prompt that asks you to enter your Facebook username and password.

If you type in the requested information, hackers may be able to take control of your Facebook account.
