The Grey's Anatomy hunk, an avid car racer, became the latest celebrity to be killed off in a sick online hoax this week (begs26Mar12), and "RIP Patrick Dempsey" quickly became a trending topic on the social networking site.

But the actor, whose last tweet was sent out last week (22Mar12), has since brushed off the cruel joke by writing, "Hi I am back From the dead!"

Dempsey joins a long list of stars targeted by pranksters - country veteran Reba McEntire, superstar Cher and singer Jon Bon Jovi have all been 'killed off' in recent weeks.
