As of Aug. 14, rumors circled that the real life Annabelle doll, to which the supernatural horror movie series is based on, escaped from the Warren Museum after an internet user changed her Wikipedia page. The owner reports she is in fact still in the museum and the page has since been changed back. But, Gen Z is having a field day on TikTok. They’re making videos about the doll’s escape and tying her whereabouts to the death of President Trump’s brother Robert Trump. He was pronounced dead on Aug. 15. His cause of death has yet to be released.
