A cruel hacker has set Twitter on fire after it was reported Jack Black had died.

Drummer in Tenacious D, John Konesky tweeted that the rumours were false and the band is working on a fix.

It was then followed up by a tweet from Tenacious D saying everything is fine.

Two tweets were posted earlier on, on Sunday, on Jack’s band Tenacious D’s twitter account.


One saying ”I’m sad to officially announce the death of Jack Black at the age of 46, rest in peace brother.”

Another following up with #RIPJackBlack.

A third followed nearly 40 minutes later saying ”It is with a heavy heart I am to announce that Jack Black passed away last night at 3:37am. The cause of death is yet unknown.”

Jack was at the centre of another death hoax in 2014 and the claims were rubbished almost instantly.


Twitter users said it was clear that Jack was in Germany on Saturday evening and is currently on a flight to Los Angeles.

He was also posted in a photo with DJ Diplo over the weekend.
