Channing Tatum is dead. At least that's what the Internet is saying. However the "Magic Mike" actor didn't die. He's just the victim of an Internet death hoax. Channing Tatum is just fine.

A report surfaced this week saying that Tatum died in a snowboarding accident. Global Associated News reported "Actor Channing Tatum is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today - March 15, 2013. The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Channing Tatum lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.

Channing Tatum was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash. The actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played any part in his death."

Since there are so many details to the story, it might be easy to believe that it's real. However the report is false. Global Associated News is a generator that is used to create fake news reports.

A message at the bottom of the site reads: "FAKE... THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes!"

Twitter users also tried to start a rumor about Tatum's death. "Damn Channing Tatum died in a car crash this morning .... RIP homie," a user wrote. This is also false.

Tatum isn't dead but he is expecting a child with his wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum and he is set to star in an upcoming G.I. Joe movie.

However fans who came across the death report thought it might be true. They took to Twitter to question and mourn the loss. Some examples of tweets include:

"Channing Tatum died :("

"Is it true channing tatum died?????"

"If Channing Tatum really just died I will ball my eyes out #mylover"

"Molly was just crying because she heard that Channing Tatum is dead
