Social media has killed off yet another celebrity…

As the world was mourning Whitney Houston‘s unexpected death last night came false reports that incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie had died after being stabbed in prison. The rumors started on popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and spread from there.

But according to rapper Webbie, an affiliate of Lil Boosie, the rumors are completely untrue, and Lil Boosie is NOT dead.

Where do people get off starting rumors like that, especially when we’re already mourning the tragic loss of Whitney Houston: a world-famous Pop/R&B icon? Shame on them!
