Death Hoax

eaterbocuse.jpgWhat may have been the very first celebrity chef death hoax took the Twittersphere by storm this weekend, reports Eater National. Rumors of Paul Bocuse's death circulated on the social media site; chefs like Atlanta cheftestapant Eli Kirshstein fell for the trick and tweeted (and have since taken down) RIP messages, and Andrew Zimmern called the Necropedia gang, who started the rumor, "a bunch of fuckwits." Head over to the mothership to see who else was fooled. [Eater National]
