Eminem Not Dead – False Death Story Resurfaces via Jet Ski

Eminem Not Dead False Death Story 2013 Resurfaces

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Eminem is not dead. Rapper Eminem is battling a fake death report today that reads that he “died while on a personal vacation in Turks and Caicos …. from injuries sustained in a Jet-Ski accident”. But he isn’t in Turks and Caicos. He wasn’t on a jet-ski today. And he is very much alive.

A fake Eminem death story has struck the rapper at least every year this decade. Most recently a fake death report used a template form a leading news site to fabricate a tale. But the latest attempt to kill of the rapper today February 16, 2013 is a reformulation of a false tale surfacing last year.

Eminem has battled fake death reports for over a decade. Nearly thirteen years ago, before the advent of Facebook and Twitter’s current popularity, a series of fake death websites were created using preexisting templates. In December 15, 2000, Eminem was furious when a false report claimed that he had died in a rental car. The false report at the time read “multi-platinum artist Marshall Mathers, known by the stage name Eminem was killed at 2:30AM EST while driving a rental car on his way to a late-night party. “

Years later, another version of the same fake tale struck the rapper. It prompted Eminem to issue a news statement at the time to denounce the hoax. The hoax had tricked readers by using the template of a preexisting news site and inserting the erroneous story. “Despite sick-minded ne’er do-well attempts to create a state of panic in this grand country by virtue of a well-crafted… fake news story prank, our beloved Slim Shady is alive and well,” said the news statement at the time.

Ten years later, the current siege of fake celebrity death stories emerged. But the stories were much the same. A cast of characters were inserted along with a fake doctor. “There was really nothing we could do to help him” said a fabricated Dr. Adams at the time. “First it’s Pac then it’s Biggie then Eminem” added the false story.

In July last year, a website called Global Daily asserted that the rapper had (ironically) died in Los Angeles and Palo Alto on the same day. While the article said the rapper died in “Los Angeles”, it also claimed he was taken to “Palo Alto Memorial Hospital”. Of course, there is no such “Palo Alto Memorial Hospital.”

Eminem is alive, as is Miley Cyrus and Lil Wayne.

    My blood actually felt like it was burning and I got lightheaded. I had a real physical reaction to this and I have heartbeat problems. I honestly almost passed out. This stuff isn’t funny.
