Chloe Grace Moretz blasts those behind an online hoax claiming she died.

Rumours had circulated that the 'Carrie' star had passed away snowboarding accident in Switzerland - and she has hit back after the reports reduced worried family members to tears.

She wrote on Twitter yesterday (15.09.13): ''I've had my loved ones calling crying to check and see if I'm alive.

''Don't make this up. It's not real. I am fully alive and here. You're sick.''

The 16-year-old actress branded the people behind the hoax as ''disgusting'' and insisted while she was in Switzerland, she couldn't have had the accident because there was no snow.

She added: ''I don't know who made this up but you're disgusting. I am not dead. I did not die from snowboarding. It isn't even snowing here in Switzerland.''

It comes as no surprise Chloe was upset at the distress caused by the prank, as she has revealed her family are extremely close.

She previously said: ''My mom [nurse Teri] has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever.

''We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it's life.''
