One Direction fans mourned for the death of fellow fan, only to find out hours later that the death was faked. #RIPManon is still a trending topic as of press time, but the topic is hounded by questions now. What is the real story here?
One Direction fans are known for showering the teen sensation with much love and adoration. On Twitter, the outpouring of support from fans is almost palpable. When they want Niall Horan or Harry Styles (or any 1D member) to go trending on Twitter, they always succeed. This Monday, however, they agreed to trend another topic close to their hearts, the reported death of a fellow One Direction fan, named Manon.
Here are the tweets that tell the story:
Tweet: Manon was a cancer victim
@SharonaStyles: Today, The 8th of July 2012, After fighting for two years, @spinthelouis lost her battle with cancer :( #RIPManon RT to show your respect. [This shout out was re-tweeted for over 10,500 times.]

Tweet: One Direction fans should raise cancer awareness
