Celebrity Death Hoaxes

Morgan Freeman

Twitter strikes again! Back in 2012, CNN supposedly broke the shocking news that a-lister Morgan Freeman passed away. In reality, it was a popular tweeter faking a CNN retweet.

@originalcjizzle tweeted: "RT @CNN: Breaking News: actor Morgan Freeman has passed away in his Burbank home<< wow legendary actor #RIPmorganfreeman." No one on Twitter bothered to fact check. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
