Brad Pitt victim of death hoax
Brad Pitt is alive and well, despite a false report that he had died in a snowboarding accident.
The Hollywood heartthrob was the latest victim of online death hoaxes at the weekend, when it was reported that he had crashed into a tree and died while snowboarding in Zermatt, Switzerland.
Although there was a disclaimer at the bottom of the original story, saying it was totally false, the news spread and the internet was buzzing about the star's demise on Sunday.
Several other celebs have previously been the subject of death hoaxes, including Jackie Chan, Adam Sandler and Charlie Sheen.
In 2010 Anger Management star Charlie was falsely reported to have met the same fate as Brad, dying after crashing into a tree while snowboarding.
