He's dead again?

MMDE: Fidel Castro died way before 2016

Current: Fidel Castro died in 2016

The dictator Fidel Castro died in November 2016. Many people claim to remember him dying long before that - are they experiencing the Mass Memory Discrepancy Effect? If so, it's rather ironic that the popular name for this is the Mandela Effect:  but for a quirk of historical timing, we could all be talking about the Castro Effect.

In any case, there are a few reports of his death coming as a surprise to people who thought he was already dead.

Being such a controversial figure, it's no surprise his every action be shrouded in mystery. He was the subject of multiple assassination attempts. At one point it's known he was very ill and a body double was used. The media may also have lied about his death in the past. Nevertheless, November 2016 seems to be the final one ... until the next time.
