Dear Morgan Freeman…

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Last week, some guy (@originalcjizzle) retweeted a made-up CNN tweet that said Morgan Freeman was dead.  Here’s what he tweeted:

RT @CNN: Breaking News: actor Morgan Freeman has passed away in his Burbank home<< wow legendary actor #RIPmorganfreeman.

To be clear, CNN never tweeted that, which is the really hilarious part of it all.  That tweet was then retweeted and retweeted and it became a trending topic and was then picked up by a bunch of news outlets and next thing you know…  all of twitter thinks Morgan Freeman is dead.

Now I’m sure Morgan Freeman has no idea what the hell just went on.  I mean, come on, can you imagine trying to explain that to a 73-year-old?  I know 30-year-olds who still haven’t mastered hashtags and have no clue why everyone tweets “FF” once a week.  Explaining Twitter to someone over 70 is like explaining Twitter to someone under 3 — they don’t give a shit what you’re talking about, but chances are they’ve pissed themselves and need a nap.

ps. Is that what a 3-year-old looks like? I have no clue how old the baby in that picture is because I live in Los Angeles and the last time I saw a child was 2 years ago at an audition when I was forced to improv with a 6-year-old.  Afterwards he told me he was trying to “bring depth to his performance” by “creating a character who the inner child in all of us can relate to”… soooooooo, are kids everywhere douchebags or is that just an LA thing?
