CLAIM: Beyonce Fans “Physically Attack” Keri Hilson on Street

Truth rating: 0

“BREAKING NEWS!!! Beyonce Fans PHYSICALLY ATTACK Keri Hilson,” screams a headline on MediaTakeOut.

According to the webloid, strangers “beat” Hilson “in the head” after seeing her on the street.

Their supposed weapon of choice?


Wait, really?

MediaTakeOut bases its sensational claim on a tweet allegedly sent by Hilson on Thursday.

The tweet supposedly read, “It’s ONE thing to attack me on Twitter… but it’s disrespectful to have the bravery and audacity to throw Beyonce albums at me when I’m on the street.”

That sounds… suspicious.

Unfortunately for MediaFakeOut, the fact-challenged site has been duped once again.

“Fake tweet, fake story,” Hilson said Friday morning. “Photo-shop is a helluva drug.”
