List Rules Can be a cause of death or a state at the time of death.

As we all know, most celebrity deaths tend come in threes. When a celebrity dies, people start to check their Twitter feeds and discuss who might be next. No one’s ever excited about the prospect of a beloved star passing away, but it’s inevitable. Some celebrities, like Paul Walker and Amy Winehouse, died too young and from incredibly odd circumstances; Walker from a car accident, and Winehouse from an alcohol related illness. It’s terrible what happened to them, but you have to admit, it’s really strange, and a bit ironic. And no, we’re not talking Alanis Morrissette unfortunate ironic, their deaths straight up had to do with their life’s work. This list speculates as to the ironic ways that some the celebrities that are still with us might go out, and while they're good for a little chuckle, hopefully none of these ever come true.

Just in case there are any celebs reading their own ironic hypothetical deaths on this list, please note these were all written in good fun and that there's no voodoo doll of their likeness sitting on anyone's nightstand.

Enjoy this list of hypothetical ironic deaths for celebrities and vote up the ironic celebrity deaths that are the most fitting.
