Morgan Freeman Not Dead – Actor Battles Fake Death Claim, Again

Morgan Freeman Not Dead - Actor Battles Fake Death Claim, Again

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Morgan Freeman is not dead. Morgan Freeman is battling a fake death tale today, just like wrestler John Cena and magician David Blaine. But this is not the first erroneous death story to strike Freeman in the last two years.

The first major Morgan Freeman fake death story to dominate news was in December 2010. At the time, using the dubious fake re-tweet trick, fans were left to believe that a notable news site had reported Freeman dead. The site was furious and vowed to investigate the culprit.

In December 2010, a fake death retweet read “RT @[site]: Breaking News: actor Morgan Freeman has passed away in his Burbank home”. The site, however, had never sent that news statement out about the actor. As reported on the LA Times then, many fell for the fake retweet. Among them according to the Times was “ESPN’s Bruce Feldman, as well as Borders headquarters.”

But while Freeman was the victim of the fake death hoax, so too was the website. The website promptly issued a news statement that it would investigate the culprit behind hte erroneous retweet. “[We] did not report Morgan Freeman death… Rumor is false. [We] will aggressively investigate this hoax”, the network said that December.

The cause of today’s fake death report, however, remains in question. Yet currently, Global Associated aka Media Fetcher has not one but four fake death reports striking Morgan Freeman.

First, Global claims that “Morgan Freeman has been reported to be in serious condition and taken to Golden State Regional Hospital”. A second purports that the “actor fell more than 60 feet to his death on the Kauri Cliffs while on-s”. A third claims he died in a sinking yacht off the coast of St. Tropez. That erroneous tale claims that “Freeman was reportedly vacationing aboard the privately chartered vessel. “ And a forth asserts he has died in a snowboarding accent. The fake story asserts “Witnesses indicate that Morgan Freeman lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.”

It remains unclear why Global perceives it believable to write that Freeman has died in four locations simultaneously today.

Global’s fake snowboarding accident stories usually strike actors like Tom Cruise and Adam Sandler. The St Tropez erroneous tale usually strikes rappers like J Cole and 50 Cent. And the New Zealand death claim often targets athletes like David Beckham.

Either way, Morgan Freeman isn’t dead, nor is John Cena.
