bradpitt2.jpgBrad Pitt was the latest celebrity to fall victim to a celebrity death hoax, E! News reports. Global Associated News ran a story yesterday claiming that the actor died in a snowboarding accident in Switzerland. The story, which was all over Twitter, was fabricated and Pitt is still very much alive. The website ran this disclaimer at the very bottom of the article:

High School heartthrob Zach Morris may be forever young and unmarried in our hearts, but the actor who played him on the once oh-so-popular "Saved By the Bell" TV show, Mark-Paul Gosselaar (whom you also may know from "Franklin & Bash"), wed fiancee Catriona McGinn Saturday at the Sunstone winery in Santa Ynez, Calif., according to People magazine. McGinn is an advertising executive.
