Larry King Tweets He's Still Alive After Playwright Larry L. King's Death

Posted: Updated:

Former CNN anchor Larry King tweeted to his followers that he was still alive on Friday, despite some followers believing otherwise.

Following the death of famed playwright Larry L. King earlier that day, many users on Twitter mistook the playwright for the CNN anchor and starting tweeting that King, the broadcaster, died instead.

"R.I.P. Larry King not just CNN viewers will miss you!" one Twitter user wrote. Another user actually tweeted at King's Twitter account asking, "Hearing a rumor that you're dead. Are you dead?" Others took to Twitter to clarify that King, the playwright, not King ,the broadcaster, passed away. But King took matters into his own hands, setting the record straight.
