Eddie Murphy is not 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.
Ironically, he “died” the exact same way in 2010. A website called Global Associated News posted a story claiming that Murphy died in a freak accident while snowboarding in Zermatt, Switzerland during a vaction with family and friends. “Witnesses indicate that Eddie Murphy lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed,” the report reads.
Murphy was reported to have died on impact. You gotta love the internet. Launch the gallery to check out some other of the notable death hoaxes.
