Robert Pattinson Victim Of Cruel Death Hoax

28 July 2012

First he had to deal with girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheating on him with her married 'Snow White And The Huntsman' director, now Twitter has unceremoniously killed him off.

Yep, Robert Pattinson is the latest celebrity to fall victim to a cruel and completely inappropriate death hoax online.

The Twitter age has bought with it an endless conveyor-belt of untrue trending topics saying "RIP" followed by the name of a celebrity.

Once the rumour begins to trend, it is able to stay trending because people who are disgusted by it continue to talk about it. It's a vicious circle, and we one we hope will (pardon the pun) die out over time.

Gossip Cop reports that R-Pattz's hoax stems back to Global Associated News in two separate blasts - one stating he had died in a car crash, the other saying he was involved in a fatal snowboarding accident.

Both are, obviously, completely baseless.
