Eddie Murphy Not Dead in Snowboarding “Accident”

Truth rating: 0

By Shari Weiss


Eddie Murphy is the victim of a revived death hoax.

According to the pranksters at Global Associated News, “Actor Eddie Murphy is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today – May 30, 2012.”

The phony accident allegedly occurred in Zermatt, Switzerland.

It is 100% false.

Murphy is alive and well.

If this all sounds familiar, that’s because Murphy has been “killed” in at least three previous snowboarding accidents.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the only thing that needs to die are these terrible hoaxes.
