RIP Megan Fox Trending for Over 18 Hours on Twitter Worldwide, No Official Statement Yet
By Arlene Paredes | January 4, 2013 9:48 AM EST
RIP Megan Fox has remained trending on Twitter after over 18 hours beginning late Wednesday night U.S. time. A lot of Twitter users have just seen the trend recently, and so the phrase has hardly ever dropped from the top trending topics.
Fox and her reps have not released any statement on the matter, presumably refusing to dignify the ill-conceived death hoax. The mother of a lovely 4-month-old baby is believed to be enjoying a fresh chapter in her life. There has been no basis to believe that anything tragic has happened to the actress.
The Megan Fox death hoax could have started from a web site publishing fake news and information. In a swellserver.com page, the headline says, "Megan Fox Dies in Crash." But its fine print states, "This story is 100% fake." The news also uses male pronouns when referring to Fox.
The death hoax has quickly become obvious to many users, with many of them blaming Twitter directly for the foul trend. Several users pointed out Twitter has killed more people than some popular death-related films, i.e. Hunger Games, Terminator.
