Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath Not Dead, Victim of Death Hoax

Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath is the latest celebrity to be victim of an Internet death hoax.

A press release was sent wide early on Thursday (February 26) that stated the 46-year-old entertainer was shot by a masked gunman on the set of Adult Swim’s Hot Package.

“In honor of Mr. McGrath‘s legacy, his team is asking in lieu of flowers, fans post a Sugar Ray selfie, holding a packet of sugar over their heart,” the release said, which also added that he died in the arms of host Derrick Beckles. The show, however, is not currently in production and Mark is alive and well. The agency that sent the press release added that (spoiler alert) the shooting occurs in the show, and didn’t happen in real life, Buzzfeed reports.

“Final word on the death hoax thing, I knew nothing about it and found out the same time you did…sorry about any confusion,” Mark tweeted.
