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.
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.
