Actor Wayne Knight, best known as Jerry Seinfeld's annoying neighbor Newman, was the target for another death hoax earlier today.
Boston.com reports that US Magazine's website ran a story detailing the events of Knight's death in a tragic car accident. They have provided the screenshot below:
Once Knight caught wind of the news, he tweeted that he was alive and well.

Does someone have to DIE to trend? Geez! Thanks for all the love everybody. I didn’t know you cared. Glad to be breathing!— Wayne Knight (@iWayneKnight) March 16, 2014
