Zach Braff is alive and well

Zach Braff has not died. The Scrubs actor was, however, victim

of an internet hoax on October 12, 2009, in which a faked CNN-like

web site claimed that he committed suicide in his home. The rumor

spread quickly through Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook and other


Braff posted an amusing video on YouTube in response to the

hoax. It can be viewed here:


From Braff's Facebook page:

"Hi. I'm very much alive. Total

internet rumor. Amazing how fast one douche can spread a lie. Be

careful out there on the internets friends. Please spread the

word... Video of me holding todays paper to follow... Love,
