Mariah Carey Victim of Death Hoax
5:50 pm, June 19th, 2012
Mariah Carey is the victim of a major death hoax spreading rapidly thanks to a number of prank Twitter messages.
The singer was falsely said to have been “found dead” in tweets attributed to @BET, @TMZ, @CNN__TV and other outlets.
It is 100% false.
Carey is alive and well.
In the case of the supposed “CNN” report, the Twitter alert was sent via a totally fake account that’s not affiliated with the real CNN — and has since been deactivated.
The @BET and @TMZ “tweets” were never actually sent by those organizations.
In actuality, random users just falsely “retweeted” messages made to look like they came from those legit sources.
It’s a sick, completely bogus story.
Gossip Cop hopes these death hoaxes die out soon.
