‘Hello Newman’. Actor Wayne Knight The Latest Death Hoax Victim

Wayne Knight, the actor best known for playing lazy postman ‘Newman’ on TV’s “Seinfeld” and voicing characters in ‘Toy Story’ is the latest celebrity to take over the internet with a death hoax.

Sunday morning, Facebook filled with notices of his death ‘as reported by TMZ and Us Weekly’. The problem is, if you click on those links they take you to fake websites. It you go to the actual TMZ and Us Weekly, there is no mention of Knight.

In case you were curious, the posting from the fake Us Weekly read “[Knight is] dead and two other passengers are critically injured after their vehicle slammed into a disabled semi-tractor-trailer late Saturday night along Route 446 near the Pennsylvania-New York state border in Eldred Township.”

Someone even updated his wikipedia page with the ‘information’.

Knight has even tweeted the following message: “Some of you will be glad to hear this, others strangely disappointed, but…I am alive and well.”

So for now, he joins Jackie Chan, Chumlee from ‘Pawn Stars’ (that was just last week) Hugh Hefner, John Bon Jovi, Morgan Freeman and all the other celebrity death hoax victims.

Hello Newman.
