Morgan Freeman is pretty much universally loved, and when so many people care about a celebrity, there's bound to be a small faction of the population who get some giggles out of creating drama around them. Freeman has now been "death hoaxed" for about the eleventy billionth time, but no worries, fans.
"Morgan is alive and well, and joins the long list of actors who have been victimized by this hoax," his rep said in a statement.
Along with Freeman, Alfonso Ribeiro has also been killed off online, with Facebook pages dedicated to him and images plastered with R.I.P. making their way across the web. Apparently that one was a little easier to swallow, because he's been getting calls all weekend from loved ones making sure he's still breathing.
I guess FB has a page saying I died. I wonder what people are gonna say at my funeral???
It's crazy how many people are calling me about this rumor.
Thanks for all the love. In every situation you must find the positive.
Relax, Carlton lovers, and do this in celebration.
