Justin Bieber Victim of (New) Death Hoax

Truth rating: 0

Justin Bieber is the victim of (yet another) death hoax.

Late Wednesday, “RIP Justin Bieber” became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, fueling speculation that the megastar singer had died.

It is 100% false.

Bieber is alive and well.

He is just the latest celebrity to be “killed” by a prank in which Twitter hoaxsters get “RIP [Celebrity Name]” to trend.

Sometimes the intentions behind “RIP” are good (as with “Really Inspiring Person” Lady Gaga earlier in the day).

But most of the time, Bieber and other celebs are just the victims of dumb hoaxes that alarm fans and are in no way funny.
