Dennis Miller, celebrity death hoaxer?

Nah. But Sunday night, Miller inadvertently shocked his followers with a tweet that made it seem like actor Gary Sinise had died.

RT @DennisDMZ: Gary Sinise is in a pneumatic tube to heaven.//What does that even mean? I just googled to see if he died. He didn't.

@DennisDMZ That is ABSOLUTELY going to start a rumor that he has passed. CAREFUL!!

@DennisDMZ "pneumatic tube to heaven" reads like he died. Had to check the news.

Miller just meant that if anyone is ultimately Heaven bound, it’s Sinise. He tweeted a clarification before the death rumors got out of hand:

Sinise is fine! I just meant his good works will eventually rapture him at Defcon 1.

If you missed Miller’s second tweet, rest assured, Lt. Dan is alive and kickin’, doing great work to support our troops, veterans, and their families.
