Actor Denzel Washington is the latest star for which false reports of death have been generated.
Global Associated News reported that the actor died in a snowboarding accident. The site previously reported that Adam Sandler, Charlie Sheen, Owen Wilson and Luke Perry also met the same fate.
The site is notorious for generating false reports claiming that famous stars have died; stories which then quickly spread online.
Other false stories about actors dying include Jeff Goldblum and Tom Cruise falling off a cliff in New Zealand and Harrison Ford dying while yachting off St. Tropez.
"He is working on location in Atlanta currently," Washington’s publicist Alan Nierob said. Washington’s next film is the thriller Safe House with Ryan Reynolds. It will arrive in cinemas in February.
In 2007, someone posted on Wikipedia that comedian Sinbad died of a heart attack.
“Saturday I rose from the dead and then died again,” he later said.
