It was initially reported online that Knight was killed in a car accident in Pennsylvania.

In one of his tweets, Knight apologized to anyone who knows him who might have been upset by the reports and also sent regrets to the family of the woman who died in the accident.

Knight continued to post about the hoax Monday.
