Sharkeisha–the teen who punched another girl in a viral video–did not die, but there’s still people on social media saying “RIP Sharkeisha.”
Earlier this month, a “report” from satire website Huzlers.com said she died, and it was heavily “liked” on Facebook and retweeted.
There isn’t a shred of truth in the article, which said she died in a “drive-by.”
According to Huzlers’ disclaimer, it “is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.” The majority of articles on the site are completely fake, including “TUPAC SHAKUR SECRET PERFORMANCE FOR ILLUMINATI (BILDERBERG GROUP)” and “**EXCLUSIVE** UFC168 RIGGED ANDERSON SILVA FAKES LEG INJURY!”
But on Twitter, people were still talking the fake Sharkeisha death.
“RIP SHARKEISHA,” wrote one person on Twitter Sunday.
Another added: “SHARKEISHA NOOOOO #RIP.”
Said another, “Sharkeisha got shot #RIP.”
Sharkeisha, a Houston teen, recently made a series of tweets Sunday night. “Name one flaw.. I’ll wait,” reads one.
The girl was catapulted to Internet fame in November when she punched and kicked another girl repeatedly in the face.
The victim, ShaMichael Manuel, and her mother said they both forgave Sharkeisha.
Sometime after the incident, Sharkeisha was arrested for assault.
