Sharkeisha Dead? Drive-By Shooting Report Spreads on Twitter, Debunked as Hoax

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The rumored death of Sharkeisha, a Houston teen who punched and beat a classmate senseless in a video that went viral last month, was trending last night.

Not unlike allegations that Paul Walker faked his death, which also stemmed from bogus online sources, it appears to be a hoax. Sharkeisha is alive and well.

Or at least alive. She's not well in the head, clearly.

The Twitter account “Queen Sharkeisha,” claiming to be the infamous video attacker, alleged that she had been gunned down in a drive-by shooting.

The account posted a photo of a young woman in the hospital.

The photo used was not Sharkeisha, however, and was actually from an old New York Post article about a 42-year-old named Karen Brim (see below).

A comedy site, Huzlers (dot) com also posted the story about her being shot before the aforementioned Tweet. It's unclear if the two acts were coordinated.

In any case, the Twitter user claiming to be Sharkeisha wrote alongside the unrelated photo: “2 shots, 12 stitches and still breathing. THANK YOU LORD."

There was no actual media coverage of the incident, but the story spread, and the terms “RIP Sharkiesha” and “Prayforsharkeisha” began trending on Twitter.

For no reason whatsoever. This didn't actually happen.

Sharkeisha Hoax

About an hour later, the account wrote to its 41,000 followers: “I am forever The Queen,” while re-tweeting a number of messages saying "she" was shot.

“Sharkeisha got killed bruh? Gah damn the game [expletive] up RIP,” reads one tweet that was re-tweeted by the “Queen Sharkeisha” account.

As for Huzlers, which said “Word on the street Sharkeisha is dead… Tun tun tun…,” on Facebook, it calls itself a website “for your daily laugh.”

Whether anyone's laughing or not, it doesn't seem the least bit credible. Nor is there anything to suggest this actually happened to the troubled teen.

Last month, the video of Sharkeisha punching and beating another teen, ShaMichael Manuel (below), hit the web, generating tens of millions of views.

The viral clip spread even more quickly than this death hoax.

Incredibly, Manuel forgives her for the sucker punch heard 'round the world. So #Prayforsharkeisha indeed. Not because she was shot, but so she gets help.

It doesn't matter what environment you grew up in, what race or even what culture you're a part of; if you deliberately involve yourself in physical altercations or any kind of fighting for that matter you are nothing but a piece of trash on the ground. people need to stop using their upbringing as excuses for their actions and start bettering themselves as people.

I think people are giving her the reputation that she has not. No one knows about this girls personal life and what she goes through on a daily basis. There are soo many people out there trying to pretend to be her, trying to live vicariously through her and not really knowing who she is and what she is about. There are too many people out there who are fake and phony, that wanna be someone else who in turn gives the person that they wanna be a bad name. Now im not saying that sharkeisha is an angel, but I feel like in most situations her actions are provoked. Whether it be by peer pressure, or someone bullying on her. If you can find it, on her page, the REAL sharkeisha page is laughing about the people who has responded to the videos that were posted, cause most of them are comical, she is still just a child. And you would also see posts about her life and life in general, in which she has a seemingly positive outlook on. You don't find often someone who loves to beat the breaks off of people, responding so positively about a life we would think would be full of hardships. And yet their are people wishing her dead. Shame on all of yall, we should be directing our youth in the way that they should go, and stop persecuting then for being misdirected. No one is perfect, and children are even less so. So if your older in age you should respect that she still had growing to do mentally, and if you cant than you have some growing to do mentally. Love.

I would love to know how you think Sharkeisha was provoked. ShaMichael was blindsided. You can't possibly blame the victim. I am glad that Sharkeisha got arrested so that now she knows that being a bully will cost her not only her freedom but fines and even more. Bullying has got to stop. That include defending the bullies as well.

Forget jail...the zoo is more appropriate. I don't know of any other Sharkeisha's in captivity. Many in the wild in urban American ghettos.
