We knew this one couldn’t possibly be true because there was no sign of Johnny Gill weeping profusely from under the shroud of a black lacy veil. SMH. Eddie Murphy is the latest celebrity death hoax victim. Rest assured, he is still very much alive.
According to TMZ reports:
The Internet is blowing up with reports that Eddie Murphy is dead. NOT TRUE.
We made some calls, and Eddie is very much alive.
The frenzy was triggered by MediaFetcher.com. The site has been spinning bogus stories about other celebs they claim are dead but are not — including Jon Bon Jovi, Charlie Sheen, Adam Sandler, TooShort, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Luke Perry, Jack Black, Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Tom Green, Mac Miller, Tiger Woods, George Clooney, and others.
This is just crazy. Who has time to sit around making up lies about people dying? And Eddie Murphy’s death is no joke. We’d be devastated. Glad to know he’s still with the living.
