‘RIP Adele’ Death Hoax Becomes Trending Topic on Twitter
Twitter has gone into overdrive again with a death hoax and this time British singer Adele is the victim. Though there are no official reports that the singer has passed, on Saturday, “RIP Adele” became a trending topic on Twitter, igniting speculations as to whether the singer is really dead.
The Adele death rumors came a day after false death reports of actress Demi Moore began spreading like wildfire on Twitter. There were also false death reports circulating about singer Cher this week.
“My heart dropped to my stomach when I saw RIP Adele, but then it was fake,” one tweet read.
“Anyone who finds it funny that RIP Adele or RIP Demi Moore is trending lacks compassion, respect and kindness. What happened to the truth?” noted another.
“Sigh at “RIP Adele” trending. It’s not funny making people think someone’s dead,” another user wrote.
Adele’s Live from the Artists Den performance at the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club will premiere on television on Feb. 3, according to her Web site.
Congratulation to Adele for claiming two trophies including International Revelation of the Year and International Song of the Year in 2012 NRJ Music Awards.
