Some jerk posted a fake tweet from Entertainment Tonight claiming Justin Bieber had cancer. Some celebs actually tweeted in support, and it’s been reported that some girls even shaved their head in support. But it seems like the whole story – even the shaved heads – could be a fabrication.
On October 23rd, the culprit doctored a screenshot of a tweet from Entertainment Tonight to make it look like they were confirming that he had leukemia, then that photo was posted on other websites, and went a little crazy online. Some reports claim that celebrities like Kanye, Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown seemed to support the news on twitter, but those may have been doctored as well, because those are not currently on their twitter feeds.
Meanwhile Bieber is not sick with cancer, and it’s possible (although not completely certain) that some kids may have shaved their heads.
Can we all just remind everyone that Twitter is not a news source? It’s a rant generator. Double check your sources before grabbing a razor, or anything else for that matter!
