Kirk Douglas is not dead, but People magazine is prepared with an obit

In the way that media organizations do, People magazine had prepared an advance obituary for actor Kirk Douglas. But somehow, the story was mistakenly posted online — way ahead of itself.

The dateline read Sept. 29, but it’s unclear exactly when it posted, though it was noticed on Sunday. The story ran with the headline “DO NOT PUB Kirk Douglas Dies.” We’re guessing the obit was written because Douglas will be turning 98 on Dec. 9.
