Nelson Mandela is the victim of a death hoax.

The rumor is spreading on Twitter and other social media.

It’s 100% false.

Mandela is alive and well.

This same nasty rumor about Mandela first circulated almost exactly one year ago.

These hoaxes are always stupid and unfunny, even when they happen to young and healthy Hollywood stars in outlandish “accidents.”

Starting a rumor about a man in his 90s dying, which only serves to give pain to his associates and family, is downright cruel.
