Mark Zuckerberg Dead? Facebook Creator Death Hoax Says he Died in a Car Crash

The report by Global Associated News reads: "Mark Zuckerberg died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the vehicle accident and was identified by photo ID found on his body. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been a factor in this accident - April 27, 2014"
The Web site further reported that Zuckerberg lost control of vehicle as it rolled several times. Zuckerberg was apparently driving friend 50 Cent's car and the car went past double lines several times before hitting the divider, leading to Mark's death.
Just like many celebrity death hoax, the report of Facebook creator's death report is also fake.
What confirms that Zuckerberg's death report is fake is the bottom note on Global Associated News. The note reads as:
"FAKE... THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes! this story was dynamically generated using a generic 'template' and is not factual. Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank 'non-specific' template for the purpose of entertainment."
Zuckerberg's death report is fake. Still many fans took to Twitter to express their condolences. Many of them wrote: " RIP Mark Zuckerberg".
The celebrity death hoaxes have become a mundane way of generating publicity. Some celebs who have much recently become victims of death hoaxes include: Dwayne Johnson, Leonardo Di Caprio, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber and Mark Calway
