Bill Cosby Upset Over Death Hoax


Bill Cosby
'To the people behind the foolishness, I'm not sure you see how upsetting this is,' says the representative of the 'Cosby Show' star.


Legendary comedian Bill Cosby has urged online hoaxers to stop reporting his death - because his friends always fall for the sick rumors. Reports surfaced online this week alleging "The Cosby Show" star had passed away.

Cosby's rep moved quickly to dismiss the rumors, stating: "Mr. Cosby is alive and well." The death reports came just months after similar rumors emerged in February - and Cosby, 73, is calling on the pranksters to stop the erroneous jokes for the sake of his loved ones.

In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Again, I'm rebuttaling (sic) rumors about my demise. Emotional friends have called about this misinformation. To the people behind the foolishness, I'm not sure you see how upsetting this is."

Zach Braff, Johnny Depp and Kanye West have all been targeted in similar death claims by online jokers.
