The Westboro Baptist Church threatened to picket singer Whitney Houston’s funeral on Saturday. They didn't show up, but uploaded a fake photo (left) on Twitter of convince others that they did.

Margie Phelps, daughter of the church’s pastor Fred Phelps, tweeted on Saturday: “Time for Westboro picket of Whitney Houston funeral.So many piling up to blather about her today. Not ONE of them warned her of hell."

Margie Phelps later tweeted an image of what she claimed to be Westboro Baptist Church members protesting outside Houston’s funeral, but the New Jersey Star-Ledger said that no protesters had access to the area depicted in the image, which was apparently photoshopped.
