Funny man Tracy Morgan has passed after being involved in a horrific multi-vehicle accident last week. Fans are spreading the word via social media. Mr. Morgan’s family released a statement thanking the fans for their support during this trying time.
Actually, a major part of that is not true. Tracy Morgan, the latest victim of an internet death hoax, is actually still very much alive, but in critical condition following an accident involving his limo van and an 18-wheeler. He is suffering from multiple broken bones, but none of this has led to amputation (another hoax).
The important lesson to take away from this: Stop believing the first thing you read on the internet.
