I'm not sure what satisfaction people get out of spreading rumors that someone has died. But over the past couple months Twitter rumors have spread that Aretha Franklin
, Bill Cosby
and Flavor Flav
passed away -- they are all alive and well.
A few hours ago Keenen Ivory Wayans
was trending on Twitter with a fake CNN re-Tweet saying he died "in his Los Angels Home
." Does anyone think CNN would spell Los Angeles wrong? The 52-year-old Wayans is still kicking, probably working on the White Chicks
sequel, and I doubt he is going anywhere anytime soon.
That said, after hearing this fake Wayans news I had to look up Keenan parodying Arsenio Hall
on In Living Color
-- this was hilarious!
