Jim Carrey Died? Nope, Just Another Internet Hoax

By March 2, 2011

Follow me on:

As breathlessly tweeted, texted, and Facebooked earlier today:

Jim Carrey dies in snowboard accident. Actor Jim Carrey Dies In Snowboard Accident. THIS STORY IS STILL DEVELOPING... Actor Jim Carrey is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today - March 2, 2011.
I've heard some bad news, can anybody confirm that jim carrey had an accident and died instantly ???
Jim Carrey is dead Comedian

The truth? The story about Carrey dying in a snowboarding accident is a hoax, published via the prank website FakeAWish.com, which has been responsible for innumerable celebrity death hoaxes over the past several years. Jim Carrey is NOT dead.

Last December the same website reported both Adam Sandler and Charlie Sheen dead in snowboarding accidents which supposedly occurred in exactly the same location.

I repeat: the report is a hoax. Jim Carrey is alive and well, and probably hasn't been anywhere near a snowboard in years.

P.S. You too can be a dead celebrity. Just type your name in here.

Some things just aren’t funny and to publish information about someones death that isn’t true shows just how sick this world has become, death is no laughing matter.
INformation like this can really mess people up whether it would be his family members or his fans, some people just are sick.

Wouldn’t be quite as sick if they weren’t saying Jim Carrey died. I mean come on, that’s our childhood right there. Why not pretend somebody less important such as Hannity or Zack Efron? They get a good cackle, everyone else says “ouch… that kind of sucks..” and everybody moves on. But Jim Carrey… Just… Why..?

Some people spread these rumors on purpose just to see how long it will go and how much it will change. I know because my idiot nephew does this all the time.

you’ll get used to it

I’ve seen quite a few “deaths” on twitter, mainly Bill Cosby..

but try doing you own research, perhaps search google for recent news and see if some of the big news sites can confirm the story
