Actor Patrick Dempsey has poked fun at false rumors suggesting he had died in a car accident by posting a funny message on Twitter.com on Thursday.
The Grey’s Anatomy hunk, an avid car racer, became the latest celebrity to be killed off in a sick online hoax this week, and “RIP Patrick Dempsey” quickly became a trending topic on the social networking site.

But the actor, whose last tweet was sent out last week, has since brushed off the cruel joke by writing, “Hi I am back From the dead!”

Dempsey joins a long list of stars targeted by pranksters – country veteran Reba McEntire, superstar Cher and singer Jon Bon Jovi have all been ‘killed off’ in recent weeks.
