Paul McCartney Victim of Death Hoax

Paul McCartney is the victim of a death hoax.
A rumor that the music legend had died spread like wildfire on Twitter on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
“RIP Paul McCartney” became a worldwide trending topic, only further fueling speculation.
It is 100% false.
McCartney is alive and well.
The Beatle is just the latest celebrity to be “killed” by a prank in which Twitter hoaxsters get “RIP [Celebrity Name]” to trend.
While more and more people are quickly recognizing these rumors for the dumb, unfunny hoaxes they are, it’s disgusting that others think needlessly causing (even momentary) panic is acceptable.
