Celeb death hoaxes are fun… until a Kardashian gets hurt!
Last night tweeters around the world mad #Cher a trending topic, after one user tweeted a fake CNN story claiming the the 65-year-old singer passed away.
Less than an hour after the original "RIP Cher" was posted, Kim Kardashian was freaking out.
"Did I just hear Cher has passed away? Is this real? OMG."
Over 12 million people started asking the same thing. The affect wasn't quite the same as Orson Welles' War of the Worlds radio show, HOWEVER people did lose their shit thinking Cher gone.
Kim "investigatory journalist" Kardshian did some digging and discovered elaborate joke. She told her millions:
"Can't believe people would make up a sick joke like Cher died. These people need to get a life! Thanks Twitter for clearing that up!"
There you have it!
Cher is alive, despite the fact that she hasn't posted on Twitter since last week.
