Eddie Murphy is the victim of ANOTHER death hoax.

According to a gross prank from Global Associated News, “Actor Eddie Murphy is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today – May 29, 2011.”

The rumor is spreading on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

Murphy is NOT dead.

He’s alive and well.

The FAKE report claimed that while at a ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland, “Murphy lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed… Murphy was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash.”

So, does this rumor sound familiar?

It should.

The same disgusting hoax ran five months ago – to the day.

It was fake then. It’s fake now.

These bogus death rumors need to end.
