Wayne Knight Did Not Die, According To Wayne Knight

Comedian and fictional archenemy of Jerry Seinfeld Wayne Knight was recently claimed as the most recent victim of a celebrity death hoax. But as he will happily tell you himself: Wayne Knight is not dead yet.

A site masquerading as Us Weekly posted the story, which claimed Knight was the victim of a fatal car accident. According to Celebuzz, the story also appeared on a similarly fake version of TMZ.

If there's a lesson to be learned here, it's that we should be critical of celebrity death reports and live each day watch every "Seinfeld" episode to the fullest.
