Zayn Malik Victim of Death Hoax

Zayn Malik is NOT dead.
A death hoax involving the One Direction singer took off on Monday, leading #RIPZaynMalik to trend worldwide on Twitter and alarming the performer’s millions of fans.
It’s 100 percent false — Malik is alive and well.
The rumor, which comes hours before April Fools Day, was fueled in part by a phony, photoshopped “BBC” story about Malik allegedly being found dead in a hotel room.
A similar fake BBC story tricked people into believing Lady Gaga died back in 2011.
These pranks are not funny.
