Eddie Murphy Still NOT Dead

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Eddie Murphy, Hollywood’s favorite Internet death hoax, has been victimized once again.

According to the losers at prank site Global Associated News, “Actor Eddie Murphy is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today – July 24, 2012.”

The alleged accident, of course, occurred in Zermatt, Switzerland, where Murphy has been “killed” about a dozen times in the past, including earlier this month.

It is 100% false.

Murphy is NOT dead.

He’s alive and well.

We’re not sure why Murphy is such a popular target of death hoaxes, but his 50th “death” is just as unfunny as the first one.
