Fans were temporarily devastated on Sunday after a rumour ignited on Twitter that Seinfeld favourite Wayne Knight was dead.

However, the 58-year-old funnyman took to Twitter to refute the death hoax, which claimed he died in a car crash, and even poked fun at the fact that he was trending on the social networking site only due to his alleged death.

He wrote: 'Some of you will be glad to hear this, others strangely disappointed, but….I am alive and well!

Newman was always my favorite. The episode where Kramer kicks him out of the mail truck and he ends up at the farmer’s house was hilarious.

I can’t decide between Peterman and Newman. Both are hysterical.

And that time he jumped from a window, after Kramer dared him. But it was only the second floor.

It is still a dirty joke to play on a Hollywood type.

An actor can suffer a lot of worry and anguish in the hours between reading the story, and his agent calling to tell him it isn’t true.

When the original story was first posted here, I recall being disturbed and a bit skeptical that a first responder had identified the deceased by name in a public forum. That is simply prohibited in health care.

I don't believe it. People will say anything on Twitter.

And who among us has never had to do that.

Surprised he didn’t die years ago of a stroke - he was fabulous at getting himself worked up into a fit, red face and all, when needed - nothing funnier than when he’s asked about working in the post office - “aren’t those the guys who go crazy and shoot everybody?” - Newman pausing with a sinister look:”...sometimes - because the mail just keeps coming, you get it out and then there’s more, and you get it out and then there’s the Publisher’s Clearing House, and.....”

Wayne Knight is nothing more than a union thug. In September 2012, he stated:

Being a union member, I feel for them [postal workers]. Whether I was playing an iconic character or not, it's not that easy a life. And it's certainly not that easy a life when you turn the corner at 50 or so and it's coming to an end. My sympathies are with them. It's a rough life but it's a good job, because it's a government job.

Since he's on the side of Big Labor racketeers in government unions wasting my tax dollars, I have no use for that vile creature.

All film and T.V. actors in film and TV are union. They can’t work otherwise. With stage acting you can still get by without being a member of Equity (stage actors union).

I'm familiar with the rules in a closed shop state. Almost 40 years ago, I was forced to join a union in Pennsylvania in order to work. I -- a newbie at plant -- then led a crusade to bust the union along with other Conservatives and Christians who hated Big Labor thuggery as much as I. The joy was sublime when the NLRB election was held and we -- albeit narrowly -- broke the stranglehold imposed by unions goons.

Productivity increased and profits rose as the outmoded union workrules and regulations were tossed overboard. And those profits did trickle down to us in the form of a fatter paycheck. The deadwood fatherbeddding "workers" were all fired, some of whom had more than 30 years of "service" with the company. Yes, I'll confess to a great measure of glee when those grizzled old unionistas were escorted out the door. So much for their precious thug-protected seniority and tenure.

I hate all unions...government or otherwise. I also despise the minimum wage but that's a topic for a whole 'nother thread when I lambast the vile Frances Perkins of the New Deal era. She, as much as anyone, is why America's economy is not the juggernaut it rightfully ought to be.
