Did Jim Carrey really die in a snowboarding accident?

Rumors were swirling all over the web on Wednesday night and Thursday morning that Jim Carrey had died in a snowbarding accident.

That doesn’t seem to be the case at all.  Carrey is evidently just the latest victim of the online rumor mill that has a tendency to kill people off without any rhyme or reason.

Jim Carrey isn’t the only person to have recent false death claims online.  Justin Bieber, John Cena, Russell Crowe and many others have woken up to their name in the headlines with obituaries in the works.

For the former In Living Color funny man, it was death by snowboarding.

Carrey’s representatives say they aren’t sure how his name got dragged into the rumor mill, but they are sure he did not die in a snowboarding accident over night.
