Is Lois Griffin from Family Guy dead? Why is the phrase “Lois Griffin is dead at 43” popular on social media?
Alex Borstein, who plays Lois Griffin on Family Guy, is the latest celebrity to be the target of a fake death report on Twitter and TikTok.
Every day, there’s a new TikTok trend that can’t be explained. This week, a popular animated character from the TV show Family Guy died, and the news was posted on a video-sharing site. This makes me wonder if an animated character can ever really die.
Most celebrity death hoaxes are cruel, especially when they involve national treasures in their later years. But when the victim is an animated woman who has been the same age for 23 years, the joke seems more like harmless fun. If you’re worried about Lois Griffin’s health or just want to know why the character’s supposed death has gone viral, here’s all the information you need:
Is Lois Griffin still alive?
No, is the short answer. The celebrity death hoax has been around as long as social media has. For years, Twitter and Facebook have been full of false stories about the deaths of well-known people who were loved by many.
But it’s likely that Lois will be one of the first fictional characters to fall for the hoax. Since Christmas Day, the phrase “Lois Griffin is dead at 43” has been a top trend on Twitter and the video-sharing app TikTok.
TikTokers have filmed themselves telling family members that Lois has died and then recorded their (often confused) reactions. TikTokers play jokes on their family by telling them that Lois Griffin is dead at 43, and then they record their reactions. In one TikTok, a person says, “I just saw her on TV last week!”
Many of the people who were filmed don’t know who Lois is. When they Google her, they find out that she’s a cartoon character, which only makes them more confused. Lois hasn’t died on the show, so it’s not clear where the death hoax came from. As with most TikTok trends, it’s best not to think too much about it.
What is her name?
Lois is one of the main characters on Family Guy, a popular animated adult comedy show on Fox. She is married to Peter Griffin and the mother of Meg, Chris, and Stewie. She also owns the family dog, Brian, who has a strange crush on Lois, but that’s another story.
Since the show began in 1999, there have been 400 episodes. Lois has been in all of them. She is often annoyed by Peter’s childish actions and poorly thought-out plans. In the show, Lois is about 43 years old. Since Family Guy is a cartoon, Lois has been 43 for more than 20 years, even though she has had birthdays throughout the series.
Who on Family Guy plays Lois Griffin?
The American actress Alex Borstein, who is eight years older than Lois, gives her voice. Borstein has been Lois’ voice in every single episode of the show. Aside from The Cleveland Show, she has also done voice work for Bordertown, The Angry Birds Movie, and Robot Chicken.
Borstein has been in real life on TV shows like “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Getting On,” and “MadTV.” She is still alive and will show up in new Family Guy episodes in 2023.
