Calm Down Everyone, Wayne Knight Is Not Dead

Despite rumors to the contrary, The Exes star Wayne Knight has not died and is a funny as ever.

The actor, who gained fame for his roles on Seinfeld and Jurassic Park, just tweeted announcing his status as a living, breathing human being.

His messages come after a hoax on Facebook persuaded many to believe he had passed away in some sort of tractor trailer accident. And even though no major news outlets picked the story up, the pranksters wove the very intricate story using what appeared to be a story on TMZ.

We’re just happy that Wayne is still with us and has a sense of humor about the whole thing. It isn’t often when celebrities can see how ridiculous being famous can be.
