Rumours are circulating that Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman have died. The rumours are false and the result of Internet trolls setting up a Facebook page with the title RIP Morgan Freeman. The same "fate" happened to "science guy" Bill Nye only a few weeks ago from the time of writing.

Before you circulate news about the death of a celebrity, always verify the news first from a reputable news outlet such as the BBC, CNN or MSNBC. Spreading news because you "heard it on Facebook" is irresponsible and the reason why such nonsense manages to get viral success.

Additionally if you do encounter these fake RIP pages that appear on Facebook, we recommend not joining them, and not commenting on them either, even if you do know they are false - see our blog post here about not feeding Internet trolls.
