Russell Brand Jokes About Rumored Death

Russell Brand is the latest celebrity to be the subject of a false and disgusting death rumor.

Like other gross pranks from the sick site Global Associated News, Brand was reported to have “died” over the weekend snowboarding in Zermatt, Switzerland, where he supposedly “lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.”

Brand is NOT dead.

He’s alive and well.

And  joking about it.

Upon hearing he had “died,” Brand tweeted, “Bloody hell. I better cancel the milk,” along with a link to the fake report.

While these death hoaxes aren’t remotely funny, it’s nice to see Brand has a good sense of humor about it.
