Kanye West Survives Internet Death Hoax
E! Online reports that the 808s & Heartbreak star was the victim of an Internet death hoax late Tuesday night, when word spread across the Web that West had died in a "bizarre car crash in Los Angeles involving two luxury cars" and "RIP Kanye West" became the Number 1 Twitter trending topic.
Thankfully, West's girlfriend, Amber Rose, set the record straight via—what else?—Twitter.
"This RIPKanyeWest topic is not funny and its NOT TRUE! He has people like myself and his family that love him very much," she tweeted. "Its in extreme poor taste to have that as a trendy topic. It's totally disrespectful to make up a story like this where all human and we all make mistakes and to say someone died cuz of a mistake is ridiculous. U wouldn't want someone to say that about u Or someone u love it's not funny. #LongLiveYeezy!!!!!"
