An article saying AMC has agreed to “bring Beth Greene back to life” on the The Walking Dead fake.
It was posted on the National Report, a satirical website.

Beth Greene, played by Emily Kinney, died this season.
There’s a petition to bring the character back, per The Daily Beast:
Beth Greene is dead. Like, super dead. Literally deader than the zombies The Walking Dead is named after. In the show’s fifth midseason finale, which aired two Sundays ago, the fan favorite got shot through the head after stabbing a cop with a pair of scissors. Blood and brains sprayed everywhere. Characters mourned. But a group of livid fans—over 45,000 of them, actually—are still lobbying to “Bring Beth Back!” A change.org petition, started by a young woman identified only as Amanda T., aims to reverse Beth’s “disgusting, unsatisfying” demise—or at least get AMC and the show’s producers to listen.
The Change.org petition can be accessed here.
“Her death was far too soon and the writers threw away the potential of a perfectly good character. Her story wasn’t over. Emily Kinney and her character don’t deserve this. There was so much more to be done with her character and they chose to kill her in a disgusting, unsatifying death that caused more anger and dissapointment than shock and mourning. Beth was a symbol of hope that a lot of women could relate to and see themselves in,” the creator of the petition states.
