Veteran comedian John Witherspoon has been forced to release a statement verifying his existence after false reports that he was killed flooded Twitter on Thursday.

Not only did “RIP John Witherspoon” become a trending topic on Twitter, his biography on had also been updated to reflect the alleged death. The actor, best known for his appearances in the “Friday” movies, took to his own Twitter page to assure fans he is alive and well in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The 70-year-old’s Wikipedia page has been subsequently corrected.
