Eddie Murphy is Not Dead, but Buckwheat Has Been Shot [VIDEO]

Once again, Eddie Murphy is denying internet rumors that he is dead, this time in a snowboarding accident yesterday in Switzerland. Does Eddie Murphy even snowboard?

The death hoax has me thinking of a classic bit Murphy did on Saturday Night Live about his famous character Buckwheat being shot. The skit lampooned the media’s coverage of Ronald Reagan being shot and told the storyof Buckwheat being gunned down and eventually dying.

My favorite part is the way SNL interrupted the show with regular reports to tell the story. Great television, and one of the best parodies in Saturday Night Live history. It was also a way for Murphy to kill off the recurring bit that he was tired of doing.

Of course, until Murphy reappears on Saturday Night Live as a host, I still think he’s dead.
