Bill Cosby tweets that he’s alive
New York: American comedian Bill Cosby has taken to his Twitter page to let fans know that he is alive and well after rumours of his death made their rounds on the Internet.
News of his death had been spreading since August 2 afternoon, prompting the 73-year-old actor to deny the rumours.
“Again, I’m rebuttaling [sic] rumours about my demise,” the New York Post quoted him as having written.
Cosby was at the centre of another death rumour in February, prompting him to tweet: “As you well know, a dead person cannot rebuttal. Therefore, I am rebuttaling to tell you that when I heard the news I immediately began rebuttaling and went into denial.”
He also acknowledged that “rebuttal” was not used as a verb, but was not concerned about it.
“I don’t care, because I’m alive!” he added.
