Charlie Hunnam was not amused to be the victim of a recent death hoax. The “Sons of Anarchy” star (and would-be Christian Grey) says a couple of his friends were “panicked” enough to call him when the rumor surfaced (see video below). He says the prank was in “bad taste.”

These hoaxes are definitely tiresome and sick, and happen way too frequently.Here’s hoping they die out and their originators find something else to do on the Internet.

As Gossip Cop reported, Hunnam had dropped out of Fifty Shades of Greys in 2013, a month after he was announced as the male lead. “The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey,” Universal Pictures had said in a statement.

Check out video of Hunnam talking about the hoax below.
