Hoax: Fake MTV News account reports that Cher is dead

The unverified account has 2 tweets and 263 followers. It spells the word “news” with two v’s instead of a w.

An obvious fake.  Nevertheless, a few tweeters were duped and the rumor has begun to spread:

Model Christine Teigen woke up her husband John Legend with the bad news:

She later realized her error, but (wisely) declined to wake him up a second time:

Some tweeters are putting out the word that the story is untrue:

Thankfully, we will all be able to enjoy Cher’s barely comprehensible anti-Republican Twitter rants for many years to come.

    10,000 gays and limousine liberals wail and gnash their teeth on Twitter.
    Everyone else begins another day.

    THAT’S “Star Power!”

    Please, evil that rich doesn’t die but sucks the life force of those to dumb to see it for what it is, an ugly rehash of decaying limbs and bigoted wrenching banshee like cackles.

    Cher’s death, if possible, would be no great lost to the world. She is the queen of hypocrites and a liberal succubus.

    The day her form finally collapses in upon itself for lacking a soul and substance, the heavens will rejoice in praise as that witch is dead.

      Well, that was….. unique. Do you feel better now? Do you need a hug?

        Does being a dick come naturally?Or do you really need to work at it?

          I’m not a dick, just concerned for Tommy’s mental health after reading his comment.

    It’s just her career that is dead.

      Cher is dead…from the neck up.

  • Bad things coming

    Well, she certainly has enough plastic in her to make her last well after “death”. How could anyone really tell?

  • Joe W.

    I could not care less one way or the other, really. Sonny Bono was a fine, conservative American Congressman who accomplished many good things for us. Cher?? Not so much…

    wait..this means she has actually been ALIVE ?!?!?
    I thought she was a zombie.

  • Jack Deth

    Had a small farmhouse from Kansas fallen on top of her?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    • sally1137

      She’s mellllttinggg…….

  • stuckinIL4now

    They meant her career is dead. Cher just signed a deal with LGBT-themed digital cable channel LOGO.

    Too bad….could she at least be near death?

  • Guest

    Cher is brain dead not dead dead.

  • NeoKong

    Cher is not dead. Just her career.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Even when dead the Democrats will still see that they get her vote.

    If I heard the news was true, I’m not sure whether I’d laugh or cry. I mean, she DOES provide hours of entertainment for us here on Twitchy!

    Plastic surgery can make some people look like they’re dead . . . or embalmed.

    Haha, someone did a good job with this fake. They even ordered a small gig on fiverr to get people to tweet their “concern” about Cher to try and get the tweet out there to make it go viral.

    Wishful thinking – that would be the only way to revive her career!

    Well, her brain has been dead for decades.

  • Steve_J

    She has looked like a zombie for years and made as much sense.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    “after a nuclear holocaust, all that will be left are cockroaches and Cher.” she ain’t going anywhere, folks.
