After a crazy week of celebrity deaths (Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Billy Mays, Ed McMahon), one hacker decided it would be funny to hack Britney Spears’ Twitter account and pronounce her dead as well.
The update read:
“Britney has passed today. It is a sad day for everyone. More news to come.”
Attached was a photo of a cross.
More news: this tweet is FALSE.
Thankfully, the tweet was removed from the social networking site soon after it was posted. Apparantly Ellen DeGeneres’ and Diddy’s accounts were also hacked with fake death accouncements.
Twitter needs to get their security under control! Death is not funny no matter how you look at it.
