Reports filtered through this morning that Scrubs actor Zach Braff had died of an apparent suicide, with the news reported on a fake CNN site to become a top trending topic on Twitter – but the actor is alive and well, according to an ABC rep.
A little browsing on the CNN page gave away that hoax, as all of the “top stories” on the right hand side were from 2007.
Thankfully, both rumors appear to be false.
Reporter Curt Wagner at Chicago Now did some investigating, and contacted a representative at ABC who confirmed that the actor is not dead.
More to come.
