Eddie Murphy Dead? No, Just Another Hoax

by at . Comments

The Internet is abuzz with reports that Eddie Murphy is dead. He is not.

We repeat: Twitter is not a news source. Eddie Murphy is 100% alive.

Sources close to the Tower Heist star have already debunked the hoax, just the latest in a long line of online pranks designed to fake kill a star for some reason.

Eddie Murphy: Alive!

The frenzy was initially sparked by MediaFetcher (dot) com, then spread like wildfire thanks to Twitter. This site is believed to be responsible for spinning bogus stories about other numerous celebrities they claim are dead but are not.

The Bon Jovi death hoax was a different guy, but Cher, Charlie Sheen, TooShort, The Rock, Kevin Bacon, Luke Perry, Jack Black, Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Tom Green, Tiger Woods, George Clooney and others have fallen victim of late.

All are still alive and kicking. Thank goodness.
