LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Justin Bieber did not have an asthma attack today and Lady Gaga did not have a heart attack as well. But are the two reports coincidental? Justin Bieber did not collapse from an asthma condition and was not hospitalized today. And Lady Gaga did not suffer a heart attack today Friday November 25, 2011. But online, there is a Twitter feud allegedly erupting between Beliebers and Little Monsters. And while both sides are allegedly pointing fingers at each other, fans are furious that fake reports are striking their respective celebrity today.
A twitter feud – between fans of two different celebrity groups – is certainly not new. Years ago, during the “Niley” months, social media unrest was dominated fan allegations about Nick Jonas versus Miley Cyrus. Eventually Nick and Miley broke up. But thereafter, Jonas fans and Beliebers were often dominating twitter trends in battles against each other.
But today, an unusual alleged twitter feud erupted. Initially false reports claimed the Justin Bieber suffered a heart attack, collapsed, and was hospitalized. Some fans were left believing the fake report. “People praying for Justin Bieber for having an asthma attack”. The false report was quickly denounced as erroneous by Beliebers.
But soon after fans learned that Justin’s report was false, an additional fake report surfaced that Lady Gaga had a heart attack. Quickly, the two fan groups started pointing (digital) fingers at each other. “[It's] just a rumor started by Lady Gaga fans” claimed some Belieber. JustinBieberZone.com reports today that Bieber’s rep denounced the asthma report as false. But JBZ claims “According to discussion, Lady Gaga fans was the group who started the rumor.”
Equally growing today are resurgence of fake celerity death reports, many which had dominated news earlier this month. Will Smith is not dead, but a fake death report about Will Smith is dominating news again today. Missy Elliott is not dead, the victim of a fake death report just weeks ago as well. Yet her fake story is regaining speed today again.
While the source of the Gaga and Bieber fake “attack” reports remains unknown, Global Associated is to blame for the Will Smith fake death reports. The website posted earlier this year â€śActor Will Smith died while filming a movie in New Zealand earlier this morningâ€ť. It added in the sentence after the word â€śmorningâ€ť a dynamically changing date, which reads currently today’s date.
While fake death reports have been out of control in recent weeks, fake heart attack and asthma attacks are a new breed. Fans by now have grown skeptical of death / crash stories, in which a plane, train, or car crashes in a fatal, larger-than-life, story.Â But for now, Will Smith is not dead, Bieber is not hospitalized, and neither he nor Gaga are having problems breathing.
