It’s Just A Flesh Wound: Terry Gilliam Is Still Alive
Variety stunned the world on Tuesday when it announced that Monty Python veteran Terry Gilliam had died. He is however still alive thank goodness!
Variety quickly deleted the tweet and post it sent out in error:
CORRECTION: Variety incorrectly published an article stating that director Terry Gilliam passed away. We're deeply sorry for the mistake.
