Owen Wilson Victim of Latest Death Hoax

Truth rating: 0

Owen Wilson is the latest victim of a sick, FAKE death hoax. According to yet another gross prank from Global Associated News, “Actor Owen Wilson is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today -December 29, 2010.” Wilson is NOT dead.

The FAKE report claimed that while at a ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland, “Wilson lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed… Wilson 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. Much like yesterday’s rumor about Adam Sandler having died and the same disgusting rumor three days ago about Charlie Sheen – this is NOT TRUE. Wilson is VERY MUCH ALIVE. A rep for Wilson tells Gossip Cop the rumor is “absolutely false.”

Two weeks ago, there was an equally vile death prank about Morgan Freeman, and this morning there was a death hoax about Aretha Franklin. These hoaxes have happened many times before. They’re not funny. They’re not cool. They’re not entertaining. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Gossip Cop is at a total loss as to why anyone would concoct phony fatalities, and sincerely hopes the only thing that dies out are these horrible hoaxes.
