Seriously? Who does this?
Everyone relax, Zach Braff is not dead.
Apparently someone took the time, and I assume it wasn’t easy, to create a fake CNN page that reported actor/writer/director/allaroundgoodguy Zach Braff had committed suicide. They cited police and made everything look all sorts of official.
Zach Braff is not dead.
First it was… hell, I don’t know, Paul McCartney? Jeff Goldblum? Every time I go on Twitter or these here interwebs, which is often, someone is reporting that a celebrity has died and more often than not it’s a lie. Why? What can someone have to gain from such crap?
That said, I’m glad that Zach Braff is alive and well, and even though he’s not a parent in real life (yet?) he did a fine job of daddying on Scrubs and he’s earned his spot on ye ole FameCrawler’s wall of honorable mention.
UPDATE: Zach has updated his Facebook status, so obviously he’s alive! Here’s what he said: “Hi. I’m very much alive. Total internet rumor. Amazing how fast one douche can spread a lie. Be careful out there on the internets friends. Please spread the word… Video of me holding todays paper to follow… Love, zb”
