Recently, a Facebook page called “R.I.P. Ronald Isley” garnered over one million likes along with a call for fans to express their “sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
The inaccurate Facebook page read:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Monday (March 14, 2016), our beloved singer Ronald Isley passed away. Ronald Isley was born on March 21, 1941 in Cincinnati. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
But Isley was definitely up and kicking when approached by TMZ this week to comment on the matter.
“Yeah people were calling me at five o’clock in the morning,” he revealed. “My brother was upset. What kind of stuff was that? You know… that’s a game they shouldn’t play. It don’t bother me but if I heard that about my brother I’d be upset, you know?”
