Actress KeKe Palmer is NOT dead; lashes back at Twitter rumors, fake CNN tweets

KeKe Palmer is a young movie and TV actress best known for her starring role in “Akeelah and the Bee.” Today, Twitter hooligans started a vicious rumor that she had died by hatching an #ripkekepalmer hashtag. We traced the rumor to fans of Justin Bieber, who didn’t like a couple of light-hearted tweets Palmer had published earlier in the day:!/KekePalmer/status/188332710748635136!/KekePalmer/status/188336814132695040!/iShimmerBiebs/status/188494666453352448

Irresponsible goons faked CNN tweets and the rumor took off:
