Britney Spears death hoax scares her fans
An internet prank by some hackers who tweeted on Sony Music that celebrity singer Britney Spears died on Sunday gave anxious moments to the singer’s fans.
Reportedly, some pranksters hacked into the Twitter account of SonyMusicGlobal and tweeted that Britney is no more.
‘britney spears is dead by accident! we will tell you more soon #RIPBritney,’ read the post from Sony, and another post said, ‘RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016.’
The incident prompted the singer to come with a statement from her representative that she is ‘alive and well’.
“Britney Spears is alive and well, her rep tells CNN. It appears @SonyMusicGlobal erroneously tweeted her death. Sony rep says no comment,” said a tweet from Anne Claire Stapleton CNN Producer & News Editor.
