Former Gov. Kathleen Blanco jokes about a social media post about her death.

“Reports of my early demise are greatly exaggerated,” Blanco joked Thursday in a phone call to an Advocate reporter to dispel the Internet report.

“It’s the first time that the Internet has killed me,” she also joked.

Last month it was announced that the former Governor was under hospice care as she battles melanoma. The Advocate is reporting that Blanco is doing well enough that she is no longer receiving hospice care.
