Has G-Unit’s Tony Yayo taking a permanent dirt nap? You would think so if you were bored and had nothing to do over the weekend but read tweets and go surf the internet. It turns out there’s been some rumors about 50 Cent’s right hand man passing over to the other side. Travelers Today has more info:
“Tony Yayo is dead. At least that’s what the Internet is saying. However the rapper and G-Unit member didn’t die. He’s just the victim of an Internet death hoax. A report popped up this week saying that Shelton died in a car crash. Global Associated News said that Tony Yayo died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell on April 7. The report says that Shelton lost control of the vehicle and rolled the car, killing him instantly. It then says that memorial service plans will be announced and that he will have a closed casket due to his severe head trauma. The report is false. Tony Yayo didn’t die in a car crash. Since there are so many details to the accident, it’s easy to believe that its real, but Global Associated News creates fake news reports. A message at the bottom of the site reads: “FAKE… THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes!” Global Associated News allows people to enter a celebrity name into a generator, which then creates a fake news story about their death. Other celebrities have died in the same exact car crash before. Singer Jesse McCartney, TV host Jerry Springer, basketball star Kobe Bryant and several others were killed in a car crash between Roswell and Morristown.”
There too much real death in the world to be making up fake stories. Good thing fans can still look forward to a G-Unit reunion with members alive and well.
