Hey Twitterverse, you got it wrong AGAIN. Last night, “RIP [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cher[/lastfm]” was trending bigtime on Twitter. This is because some nutjob thought it would be funny to misquote CNN.
[photogallerylink id=29080 align=right]I’m here to tell you, CHER IS ALIVE! Did you fall for it?
The nutjob in question is known as @Lorraine_Star. Her tweet read, “RT @CNN: American recording artist Cher dies at 65 years old. Found dead in Malibu home.” Obviously, it was NOT a retweet. CNN never said this. But, once it’s on Twitter…IT MUST BE TRUE!
Kim Kardashian (who has a lot of time on her hands since the “marriage” fell apart) saw this and tweeted, “Did I juist hear Cher has passed away? Is this real? OMG, I hope this is a twitter joke and not true. I don’t see it on the news anywhere. I’m praying its not true…”
Since when has reality been a priority for Kim?
Cher…we love you! Glad you’re not pushin’ daisies.
