Australian comedian Jim Jefferies has denied claims that he was killed in a car crash in Malta.
The 41-year-old took to Instagram to let his fans know he was still alive and kicking… and that he hoped the media would use a better photo of him when he really did die.
His death was announced in a fake news website purporting to be Malta Today. Posting a screenshot of the page, Jefferies wrote: “I’M NOT DEAD. But when I do die please find a better picture”.
Famous for his hard-hitting stand-up comedy routines, one of Jefferies’ most viral clips tackles gun control in America, and the stark contrast between the Australian attitude to tragic events and that of the Americans.
