As Perez Hilton readers know, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died two years ago today, when he fell off some cliffs in New Zealand while filming a movie with Jeff Goldblum. Despite that, the Cubans keep releasing new photos of him!
Dan Abram's "GossipCop" reminds us that Perez broke the news of Fidel's death on this day in 2007. (And had GossipCop been around back then, they would've promptly "fact-checked" Perez by printing a routine denial from Fidel Castro's publicist.) And ever since that death, the Cuban media has periodically released new photos of a gaunt and sickly looking Castro hanging out in various flashy Adidas tracksuits.
Yesterday, the Cuban state-run tv aired video of Fidel that they claimed was shot on Saturday, and then the state-run youth newspaper ran a photo of a fit-looking Fidel meeting with the President of Ecuador. But the real news is that Fidel is wearing a short-sleeved white workshirt instead of one of his Run-DMC costumes!
Let's take a look back at some of Fidel's best posthumous looks.
