The standup comedian, actor and singer is still alive as per the actor’s publicist
Eddie Murphy, who was made the subject of a Twitter death hoax, is alive. A Twitter rumor had emerged that the 52-year-old American stand-up comedian had been killed in a snowboarding accident as several users posting about the same, the Mirror reported. It is believed that the rumors emerged after Paul Walker’s tragic death on November 30, when fans were refusing to believe the ‘Fast & Furious’ star had died. However, The Haunted Mansion actor’s publicist confirmed that he is alive.
Of course, Murphy is far from alone. Brad Pitt, Justin Bieber, One Direction, George Clooney, Russell Crowe, Morgan Freeman and Bill Cosby have all suffered similar online fates.
