The Internet can be such a tricky place. Word spread like wild fire on Thursday that legendary actor, Morgan Freeman had died, thanks to a Facebook page in his honor. E! News set out to quickly get to the bottom of things and debunk the rumor and by yesterday a spokesman for Freeman set things straight saying, “Morgan is alive and well, and joins the long list of actors who have been victimized by this hoax”.
