American comedian Sinbad has laughed off reports he died of a heart attack last Saturday (10MAR07), after website Wikipedia.org stated he had passed away.
Wikipedia describes itself as 'the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit', and is used by internet surfers across the world. The entry for funnyman Sinbad was incorrectly edited last weekend (10MAR07) by an unknown user.
The JINGLE ALL THE WAY actor - born DAVID ADKINS - realised something was wrong when he started getting hundreds of phone calls, emails and text messages from people concerned about the star.
And despite the mix-up, the 50-year-old actor accepts the mistake could easily be made in the future.
He says, "(On) Saturday I rose from the dead and then died again.
"It's gonna be more commonplace as the internet opens up more and more. It's not that strange."
