Stars Are Dying ... on Twitter

Jackie Chan is the latest star to fall victim to a Twitter hoax claiming he's dead. He's not alone: Kanye, Lindsay and more have all "died" in 140 characters

ZACH BRAFF

After prankster Chris Laganella posted a fake Web page that the Scrubs star died of an overdose, Braff and pal Donald Faison filmed a video refuting the claims. "I'm alive, I'm here ... and I would never off myself with pills. If I had to do it," Braff said, adding, "I would do it the way everyone else would do it – by hitting myself with pots and pans." He also awarded Laganella with the "Douche of the Day Award" for, as Braff put it, "making my mom upset."
