Morgan Freeman: I’m Still NOT Dead!

Morgan Freeman is still not dead — and the Oscar winner is directly addressing the death rumors that frequently spread about him.

Fortunately, he has a sense of humor about it.

“Like Mark Twain, I keep reading that I have died,” Freeman wrote in a Facebook post late Tuesday.

He added, “I hope those stories are not true… But if they are, I’m happy to report that my afterlife seems identical to my life when I was alive.”

The actor continued, “I did go to Las Vegas to begin work on the film ‘Last Vegas.’ That is anything but a death sentence.”

Freeman has frequently been targeted by sick death hoaxes fueled by social media, with the most recent one surfacing this week.

There’s currently a phony “R.I.P. Morgan Freeman” Facebook community with nearly a million “likes.”

We’re not sure who enjoys spreading these disgusting rumors, but we hope the trend victimizing Freeman and other celebrities ends.
