Eddie Murphy isn’t dead, so don’t believe anything anyone tells you on Twitter today. The actor/musician is, in fact, alive and well, contrary to reports which claim he passed away during a freak snowboarding accident. The mental image of Murphy snowboarding through Switzerland is beyond hilarious, and the fact that he supposedly died while doing it is a pretty nifty punchline to a very odd joke. As it usually happens in these cases, Murphy didn’t die. His career might be dead, but the man himself is still kicking along.

According to the folks at Global Associated News (via The Inquisitor), Murphy was vacationing with his family in Switzerland when the intrepid snowboarder found himself connecting with a large tree. Although the “Coming to America” star was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment, he was pronounced dead on arrival. Naturally, it didn’t take long for this bogus piece to propagate, sending Twitter users into a state of panic.

Curiously, a similar story fashioned around the actor took place back in February, with good ol’ Global Associated News reporting pretty much the same thing. Have a look:

Actor Eddie Murphy is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today – February 3, 2012. The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Eddie Murphy lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.

In short: Eddie Murphy is not dead, which means that we may still get a sequel to “Norbit” sometime in the future. Hey, a man can dream, can’t he? Twitter users, meanwhile, have been lamenting the man’s death on the popular micro-blogging website. If you’re curious to read some of their reactions, take a peek at the comments below.

    I am glad he is still alive but my biggest concern is that the story lists him as an “actor/musician” Party All The Time does not make him a musician!

    • http://trusouldj.hubpages.com LaZeric Freeman

      Eddie actually made 3 music albums of his own. The 3rd “Love’s Alright” was critically acclaimed and profiled in Billboard as noteworthy.

    • TheColoredHand

      Yeah, us coloreds dont be snowboarding, skiing, swimming and DEF dont be playing ice hockey! Also, yachting is not a big vocation with the brothers, either!

      • Blahblah

        Well me and my family do. We go skiing all the time and my husband snowboard and we like camping and canoeing. So leave “Us colored” folk out of it and stop being so close minded.

        • ysion

          Don’t know where your from but I know, including myself, a bunch of black folks who snowboard, ski, swim, camp, hike, sky dive, and everything else people do in this world for fun. That ish is fun and recommend trying it before becoming a closed minded individual.

        • JohnyPinga

          You may like snowboarding, but y’all Jungle bunnies sho can’t spell. I’m finna get crunk all up in dis bitch.

    • Anthony

  • Phreedomm

    INSTEAD OF MY GIRL WANTS TO PARTY ALL THE TIME HE SHOULD HAVE SUNG “IT’S RAINING MEN” LOL……SERIOUSLY GLAD HE ISN’T DEAD.

  • Mona Verona

    Snarky schmucks like this writer who have little to no life of their own are the type of idiots who gleefully say actors’ careers are dead. What a mean-spirited a$$h013. If Murphy’s career really WAS dead, no one would care. Instead, lots of folks do, even if they ARE stupid enough to believe crap they read on Twitter.

  • Blahblah

    This is why google stuff…someone posted it on facebook…I had to look it up myself before saying anything about the situation.

  • Peter Pumpkin

    Buckwheat is now a Muslim. His new name is Kareem of Wheat.

    • nano

      lmfao…….that was briliant.

  • Diana

    In the article the date is FEBRUARY 3.2012,Today is JULY 12.2012 …HELLO?

    • Carol Williams

      Diana they were saying that a similiar article appearead back in Feb. 2012 this was the second or third time a false death has been reported.

    • Lisasosweet

      If you read the entire thing the article was from a previous nowboarding trip that they also claimed he died.

  • Sgt America

    Hey Todd, I’ll bet you Eddie makes more in his next movie than you do in your entire career. How’s that for dead careers?? LOL

  • Ed

    If TMZ is not reporting it, it definitely is not true, they always get all the information first. When Michael Jackson died they were the first ones to know about it.

  • ROSA RALPH

    WHO WANT TO START THAT RUMOR FOR THAT EDDIE MURPHY IS DEAD. IF EDDIE MURPHY WAS DEAD THE NEWS WOULD SAID SOMETHING ABOUT IS PASSED.

    • JohnyPinga

      Um……….WTF language was that?

  • Steve

    It’s just a misprint–what they meant was “Eddie Murphy’s CAREER is dead.” They should really proofread these articles.

    • David

      Why are you wasting your time reading and replying? Shouldn’t you be out volunteering or something? I know a tree (not in Switzerland) that needs to be hugged. Just relax and enjoy a good joke. Eddie probably is… at least he’s getting SOME publicity…

  • Linda

    people have too much free time on their hands. They should volunteer their time someplace to make the world a better place instead of just spending their time writing stupid stuff

  • CG

    I dunno about you, but I actually liked Party All the Time. Of course, I was around 7-8, but as a kid, I thought it was pretty catchy. Don’t mind me though, I’ve always had a thing for catchy songs, even if I know the song sucks like no other.

  • nine7one

    People are such idiots and are so willing to believe anything they read on the internet I actually kind of enjoy these absurd celebrity death rumors, especially when they’re written in a way that tells anyone with half a brain their not true…Eddie Murphy?…snowboarding?…in Switzerland?

  • JoeThePimpernel

    His career is, though, so the confusion is understandable.

  • Two Pak

    Eddie is a good guy. Sit off his shit

  • richard

    Bad roumors (P R) are 9 times stronger than good ones…Go Figure ?

    Hello, i feel that i noticed you visited my web site so i came to go back the desire?.I am attempting to to find issues to improve my web site!I suppose its good enough to make use of a few of your ideas!!

  • Joker

    If someone said to Eddie. “Get up on this snowboard!” I’m pretty sure the words from his mouth would be “I aint getting on no mother f*****g white boy board!”

  • Barbara

    I was lost for words. I said not him. I can’t be true I didn’t hear it on the news. I really like him. Thanks God he is safe. Take care E.M
