Former celebrity Paris Hilton was on the receiving end of a Twitter hoax Thursday involving "her" supposed reaction to the death of Nelson Mandela.
"Paris" did not sound smart in her alleged Tweet, posted after Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95, and actual Paris is not happy about it whatsoever.
"RIP Nelson Mandela," the Photoshopped tweet purportedly from Hilton read. "Your 'I Have A Dream' speech was so inspiring. An amazing man."
That's right, Hilton was supposedly so brick stupid that she confused Mandela with Martin Luther King Jr., or so the fake tweet would have you believe.
Which more than a few people did ... which isn't all that surprising, considering the proliferation of hoaxes on Twitter, and the fact that it's Paris Hilton.
NOTE: Paris is a former celebrity who was like the Kim Kardashian of 2003-2007. The two were even friends, and their "career paths" are similar.
You could say the Paris Hilton sex tape was the Kim Kardashian sex tape before the Kim Kardashian sex tape was the Kim Kardashian sex tape.
