Eddie Murphy is dead ... according to Twitter anyway



eddie-murphy-trading-places-bum.jpgAnother day, another Twitter death hoax. Eddie Murphy, guess it's your turn. Again.

"Murphy was targeted for the fifth time in yet another death hoax," the Huffington Post reports. "This time, MediaFetcher had the Tower Heist actor dying in a snowboarding accident in Zermatt, Switzerland, early Thursday morning. The post claimed that Murphy had lost control of his snowboard equipment and struck a tree at high speed, dying instantly on impact."

The rumor spread quickly through Twitter thanks to all the movie fans gathered at Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend.

Don't worry. Murphy is alive and well. Only his movie career has been given its last rites.
