Who said Morgan Freeman is dead? Not us

Information circulating on Twitter on Thursday alleging CNN reported that actor Morgan Freeman had died is a hoax.

CNN tweeted the following statement Thursday evening in response to the rumors: "CNN did not report Morgan Freeman death. Rumor is false. CNN will aggressively investigate this hoax."

Meanwhile, Freeman "is very much alive," his publicist Stan Rosenfield told CNN.

    I think that people take the new to much for granted. Need to check several areas first.

    I love how CNN is going to "aggressively" investigate, as if there's going to be violence or something. CNN can be an acronym for anything.

    What made this so adorable is the somewhat threatening tone that CNN would "investigate." Like it missed the fact that anyone can RT because it forgot to read that memo. BTW I got the real Freeman on the phone on my latest Nalts video, so we can all sleep soundly. Just google "Morgan Freeman ALIVE" and you'll find it.

    To CNN, please get a clue. There are many people that post here that use all kinds of screen names. Maybe you should monitor the posts before you re-post. Clearly you're not! So actually, its your fault.

    Just comes in this time of stars fading away or going into retriement. Freeman made sure that he's still alive. He's in his 80s and isn't a spring chicken.
