'OMG Eddie Murphy died?!?' is a common message being spread around Twitter as Eddie Murphy has become the victim of yet another death hoax. However Eddie Murphy isn't dead.

The actor is alive and well.

The rumor seems to have started on a prank site called Global Associated News. On Tuesday, the site wrote "Actor Eddie Murphy is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today - August 28, 2012."

The incident occurred in Zermatt, Switzerland.

However, the only problem is...it never happened.

Eddie Murphy has died in a snowboarding accident in Zermatt, Switzerland several times. This would be about the sixth time that this rumor has been spread. The last rumor occurred in July, twice.

Eddie Murphy has also died in a car crash in Australia in the past. At least Murphy seems to be killed off during adventures?

The rumor is still continuing on social media site Twitter as people write messages like the following

"Oh my god Eddie murphy died, RIP!"

"just heard Eddie Murphy died!!! is that true??!"

Most of the tweets come from users who are questioning whether or not the actor really died.

There are also several 'fan' pages on Facebook called "R.I.P. Eddie Murphy," many of which had been made in the past when the other rumors started circulating.

Eddie Murphy isn't dead. However he will be bringing something back from the dead.

The actor will bring back "Beverly Hills Cop," but this time the comedy will come to the small screen in a new television series. Murphy starred in three "Beverly Hills Cop" movies as Axel Foley. Now he's teaming up with "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan for a television version of the series. Murphy will produce the show and appear in some episodes

"What I'm trying to do with 'Beverly Hills Cop' now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley's son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit," Murphy, 51, told Rolling Stone.

"I'd do the pilot, show up here and there."

With plans such as this, the actor doesn't have time to die, so put an end to the death hoaxes.

Murphy is just one of many celebrities that was killed off by the internet this week. Comedian Bill Cosby and science educator Bill Nye the Science Guy were also victims of social media death hoaxes. Both of them are fine.
