A rumor is once again circulating that Will Smith has been killed, this time falling to his death while filming a movie in New Zealand.
Blippitt has confirmed that this rumor is 100 percent false. In fact, anyone with a pulse can now fake these disruptive fake news stories, thanks to websites like FakeAWish.com.
Here’s the fake story that alleged Smith had been killed:
Actor Will Smith died while filming a movie in New Zealand early this morning – May 31, 2011.
Preliminary reports from New Zealand Police officials indicate that the actor fell more than 60 feet to his death on the Kauri Cliffs while on-set. Specific details are not yet available.
The accident occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m. (UTC/GMT +12).

New Zealand, in recent years has grown in popularity as a backdrop for Hollywood producers because of it’s scenic and rugged landscape. Recent movies filmed in New Zealand include The Lord Of the Rings, King Kong, and The Chronicles Of Narnia.
The internet tried to kill of Will Smith before back in 2009 when a story circulated claiming that he had been killed in a car accident. At one point, a rumor was also circulating claiming that Will’s daughter, Jaden, had been killed as well. That proved to be false also.
No worries! Will Smith is alive and well.
