Macklemore is the victim of a death hoax. On Thursday morning, #RIPMacklemore began trending nationwide on Twitter, alarming fans of the singer.

The hoax came with a fake TMZ-looking post, claiming that he died in a “fiery car crash” (see below). It is 100 percent NOT TRUE. Macklemore is thankfully very much still alive. He joins the ranks of other stars, including Jennifer Lopez, Dwayne Johnson and Zayn Malik, who have been the subject of similar death hoaxes. These awful, phony death rumors have got to stop.

Macklemore has yet to address the sick hoax, although he did take to Twitter to share his disappointment about his upcoming gig being canceled. “South Africa…,” he tweeted. “We are super bummed about @TribeOneFest being canceled. We were really looking forward to it!” Gossip Cop will update when he does.
