Diam's death hoax spreads on Facebook
Rumors of the rapper’s alleged demise gained traction on Sunday after a ‘R.I.P. Diam's’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the French rapper’s passing:
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Sunday (June 26, 2022), our beloved rapper Diam's passed away. Diam's was born on July 25, 1980 in Nicosia. She will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 41-year-old rapper was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.
Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major French network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a rapper of Diam's' stature would be major news across networks.
A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (87%) of respondents think those Diam's death rumors are not funny anymore.

On Monday (June 27) the rapper's reps officially confirmed that Diam's is not dead. “She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said.
Some fans have expressed anger at the fake report saying it was reckless, distressing and hurtful to fans of the much loved rapper. Others say this shows her extreme popularity across the globe.
