I feel so bad for Jenni Rivera's son I pray they aren't giving him false hope and everything being said is true poor baby? #savejenni

They are cruelly swarming Rivera’s son’s Twitter feed with false hope, as Twitchy reported. A psychic is also preying on the grieving and devastated young boy. And it continues today.

Now, the conspiracy theories, like kidnapping, and claims that Ms. Rivera is not dead have resulted in hashtags, including #SaveJenni and #BringJenniHome.
There's no body or anything of Jenni Rivera after the plane crash i won't believe she is dead otherwise she is lost, hurt, or kidnapped….

Omg you guys Jenni Rivera might have been kidnapped instead of dead.

They're thinking that they kidnapped Jenni Rivera before she even got on the plane ??

So, I kinda think they might have paused the search for Jenni today to scatter her "remains." Then, "find" it later. #SaveJenni

And a sick Photoshop enters the conspiracy mix.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Ms. Rivera’s family. We hope that her fans will will stop tormenting her young son with such claims, and will let the devastated family grieve. In death, Ms. Rivera should not be relegated to conspiracy theory status. She was a human being; a loving mother, daughter and friend.
Rest in peace, Jenni Rivera.
