This is one of those "NOT COOL" death rumors!
The Internet was recently abuzz with the following headline on CNN.com: "Johnny Depp dies after fatal car crash." But thankfully, it's not true.
It all started on Twitter - some Tweets saying "RIP Johnny Depp" while others pointed out that the story was a hoax" - but moreso via www.angelfire.com, which had a fake CNN webpage announcing the actor's death... in 2004! Check out the hacked page with the sad headline above.
Who would do such a thing, and why? The mystery still remains. After all, Depp can't die - he's gotta get together with Angelina Jolie now that she's single!
