How's this for a Halloween hoax?

Rumors began running rampant that DJ Jazzy Jeff (real name Jeffrey Townes) had died on Tuesday after his supposed demise was falsely reported on Twitter, Gossip Cop reports.

Speaking of the popular '90s NBC sitcom, Alfonso Ribeiro, better known as Carlton on the series, also fell victim to a death hoax just last month.
