In another death hoax, satirical website Huzlers.com has claimed that Vine sensation Miranda Fugate died of head injury after she was hit by a shovel.
The fake death report on the website read as "Miranda Fugate Lockwood died of serious head injuries after being hit with a shovel in the head by an old friend of hers named Emily Powers. The whole thing was caught on video and posted all over the internet and generated around 500,000 video views in just 2 days."
The website further suggests that the in the video Miranda could be seen in a brawl with Emily. Emily picks up the shovel and hits on Miranda's head. At first it seems that Miranda had a minor injury but later she collapsed which watching Mean Girls.
"She was a good girl" Miranda's mother cried to reporters, "I mean, she was sort of a bully, but she did not deserve to get molly whooped like that, especially with a shovel right to the head", the website stated a fake quote by Miranda's mother.
Miranda refuted her fake death rumors by taking to Twitter:
She tweeted, "I'm not dead.. Idk why there's rumors saying I am."
