Miley Cyrus Dead? Hoax Tries, Fails to Off Singer With Fake Overdose

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A viral Facebook hoax is saying Miley Cyrus died this weekend. Don't believe any of the hype that Miley Cyrus is dead, though, and don't click on any links.

According to the sham report, the singer passed away at her home due to an overdose, but it’s all a farce. The headline spreading virally reads:

“[SHOCKING] Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home.”

Miley is Money

Shocking as that would be ... Miley hasn't been a country singer in years, if ever.

Oh yeah, and this alleged tragedy did not occur in any way, shape or form.

It's more than just a cruel joke, too, as this particular hoax appears designed to spread bogus surveys that make money for the scammers behind it.

Pretty shameless, but also fairly customary (sadly) in this day and age.

When users click on the post, they’re redirected to a site designed to look like Facebook, which prompts them to share the page before continuing.

There’s no video of Miley Cyrus dead, of course, or story of any sort.

She’s been the subject of similar rumors in the past, as have a host of other celebrities. Check out other stars done in by hoaxes in the past:
