CNN Claimed Morgan Freeman Death Tweet a 'Mistake'


Morgan Freeman


The news giant sent the world to shock when a tweet about the actor passing away in his Burbank home was published.

Fans of Morgan Freeman were sent into a panic on Thursday, December 16 after a respected news organization mistakenly tweeted that the Hollywood star had died. America's CNN released an update on Twitter.com stating, "Breaking News: actor Morgan Freeman has passed away in his Burbank home."

The message prompted an outpouring of notes of condolences and tributes to the star and his family. However, the legendary actor's pal Peter Shankman put a stop to the shocking claims, replying to CNN's message and insisting Freeman "was - and is - very much alive".

The news giant took down the message shortly afterwards and confirmed the tweet was a "mistake". Shankman slammed CNN sarcastically, "He's yet to get busy dying. Please confirm first."
