Paul McCartney is Victim of Twitter Death Hoax

| by Michael Allen

Paul McCartney is the victim of a death hoax... again. A rumor that the former Beatle had died spread like wildfire on Twitter on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

“RIP Paul McCartney” became a worldwide trending topic on a Twitter, but was just as bogus as the "Paul is dead" hoax in the late 1960s.

McCartney is the latest celebrity to be “killed” by a prank in which Twitter hoaxsters get “RIP [Celebrity Name]” to trend.
