This is the second time this year that Culkin was the victim of false reports regarding his death.

The rumors reportedly started with a mock tribute page on Facebook allegedly named RIP Macaulay Culkin. The page has since been removed, but not before attracting hundreds of thousands of likes.

According to The Mirror, a fake report was circulated which read: "At about 11 a.m. ET on Thursday (November 06, 2014), our beloved actor Macaulay Culkin passed away.

"Macaulay Culkin was born on August 26, 1980 in New York. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page."

Many fans were displeased with the most recent false report.

"Internet, could we please stop killing Macaulay Culkin? Thank you," one Twitter user wrote.

"Can people do some fact checking before posting on Facebook that Macauley Culkin died? You scumbags almost ruined my Christmas," wrote another.
