Eddie Murphy

I Ain't Dead ... Yet

2/3/2012 11:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Eddie Murphy says he is not dead
The Internet is blowing up with reports that Eddie Murphy is dead. NOT TRUE.

We made some calls, and Eddie is very much alive.

The frenzy was triggered by MediaFetcher.com. The site has been spinning bogus stories about other celebs they claim are dead but are not -- including Jon Bon Jovi, Charlie Sheen, Adam Sandler, TooShort, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Luke Perry, Jack Black, Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Tom Green, Mac Miller, Tiger Woods, George Clooney, and others.

Pavlov's dog could have figured this out quicker.

This all started on TWITTER. Rapper Joe Budden "broke the news" first. He has like half a million followers so it spread fast...

Well, that's easy to confirm. Just head on down to Hollywood Boulevard and see if he's picking up any trannies and "giving them a ride."

If this site is spreading false rumors, why has nobody bothered suing them for it? Surely this is not legal.

Although I'm glad Eddie is not dead, the big concern here is these false reportings. This website mentioned above is tied to virus and phishing websites that try to malware on your computer. Seems every time this above mentioned website reports an actor/actress has passed away Facebook and other social media sites get flooded with reports of the death almost instantly. These floods contain viruses and other malware. The only report I want to see TMZ do is to report the above mentioned website is DEAD!!!
