Comedy legend Bill Cosby, 73, didn’t pass away on Saturday — although a few devious Tweeters would have you believe otherwise:
“Bill Cosby was found by his wife Camille passed out on his recliner while watching TV in his Shelburne Massachusetts home. She discovered he wasn’t breathing and called 911. He was rushed to Baystate Franklin Medical Center and pronounced dead at 12:28 AM EST February 6th 2010,” read a faux CNN report that made the rounds on the popular micro-blogging website this weekend.
Have no fear, Cosby fans. A rep for the star assures us that the man famous for Puddin’ Pops and argyle sweaters is still alive, kicking, and campaigning for the young men of America to turn off the hip-hop and pull their pants up.
