Braff: 'I'm Not Dead'
Actor Zach Braff is fuming after learning a fan was behind a death story that almost became headline news last month (Nov09).
The Scrubs and Garden State star was the subject of a hoax CNN news report online and had to spend hours convincing worried friends and family members that the prank was just that.
He says, "This idiot... made a CNN mock-up page that was completely realistic that said I had died and he said he was a crazy Scrubs fan and he did it to prank his other hardcore Scrubs fans... but somehow it spread all across the Internet and within, like, hours, everyone's calling me: 'Are you dead, what happened to you?'
"I quickly went on Facebook... and I was bummed out because I didn't get that many 'likes'... but I'm alive, I'm here."
