Danza joins list of stars who have not fallen off a cliff in NZ

by Toby Manhire / 12 September, 2012
Tony Danza is just the latest celebrity not to have died in New Zealand.

From the Insquistr website:

Tony Danza is not dead, though the actor has been the victim of the latest in an unabating series of death hoaxes involving a number of celebrities and causing a spike of traffic to the websites perpetuating the misinformation that high-profile but currently quiet celebrities have died either in a rollover car accident or fallen to their deaths on-set in New Zealand.

Tony Danza is not only not dead but is working on some new projects ... According to the spurious story, Tony Danza died in a cliff-fall today in New Zealand, and the site says:

“Actor Tony Danza died while filming a movie in New Zealand early this morning – September 10, 2012. 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."

Danza joins a star-studded list of people not to have died in New Zealand, including Robert Duvall, Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise.

And, sort of, Tupac Shakur - who was not found alive and well in New Zealand.

Why New Zealand? It seems that we are (along with Austria) central to the scenarios conjured by a rather morbid online celebrity-death generator, which from time to time creates stories that get picked up.
