Denzel Washington Victim of Death Hoax

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Denzel Washington is the victim of a new death hoax. According to a gross prank from Global Associated News, “Actor Denzel Washington is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today -August 22, 2012.”

The rumor, like an identical one last November, is totally bogus. Washington is NOT dead. He’s alive and well. This stupid, sick prank has been used dozens of times to “kill” a number of celebrities. Given the actual tragedy this week with Washington’s frequent collaborator Tony Scott, this stupid hoax is particularly sick.
