Trevor Noah is NOT dead, despite a fake news story. The untrue article is yet another awful death hoax.

“Breaking News: South African Comedian Trevor Noah Dies At 33,” reads the completely false headline on The accompanying article wrongly states, “South African impressionist and most influential comic and actor, Trevor Noah has died after being injured in a car accident, [a] reliable source discloses.”

The fake story goes on, “His vehicle hit a patch of water outside Potchefstroom and the car aquaplaned and hit a light standard. Noah sustained internal injuries and died at the spot.” The piece goes on to detail Noah’s career, and says, “The comedian’s passing has left a massive hole in the industry… He will be sorely missed by his peers and the public and our sincerest condolences go out to his family.”

But it’s all a sick, twisted lie. Noah, thankfully, is alive and well. Unfortunately, though, this hoax has spread on social media, with one Twitter user, @Doc_ster, even tweeting to the star on Monday, “@Trevornoah is you dead?”

NO, he is NOT. Noah is just the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax. And this disturbing site has also published hoaxes about pregnant Beyonce suffering a miscarriage and Charlize Theron dying. It’s disgusting.
