In case you heard the vicious rumors floating around on the Internet on Friday about our beloved Luke Perry meeting his untimely demise while snowboarding — dry those eyes — everything is OK!
Luke Perry DID NOT die while snowboarding!
Reports have been spreading like wild fire detailing the early 90′s heart throb losing control while riding the slopes of Zerrmatt, Switzerland. The Ski Channel would like to assure you all that Mr. Perry is alive, and most likely still capable of portraying a high school student on television (if any directors from the CW are reading this).
The Global Associated News incorrectly reported, “The actor and novice snowboarder was vacationing … in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that (he) lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed … The actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played any part in his death.”
This is the same news source that incorrectly reported the deaths of Brad Pitt, Taylor Lautner, Jeff Goldblum, Hilary Duff, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler and others.
It seems their only consistency is their lack of reporting credibility. To the Global Associated News, and anyone who perpetuated such an awful hoax — for shame! You nearly ruined our snow-filled weekend with such reports!
And now, to help the healing process lets take a walk down memory lane with the opening of 90210. Going to have this song stuck in my head all weekend now — thanks online tabloids!!!
