Eminem Stabbed - Rapper Just Another Victim Of A Facebook Death Hoax; Who Else Has Been 'Killed'?
The message circulating on Facebook isn’t an old-school chain email or spammy post but rather a sidebar advertisement on the social networking site claiming the rapper was stabbed in New York City. The fake post shows a picture of a tattooed man’s back with slash marks and a message claiming the stabbing was caught on surveillance video. Several rumors are bouncing around Facebook about Eminem, claiming that the rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, was the victim of a stabbing and has died. Turns out it's just another Internet death hoax. Eminem is actually alive and well, his reps have confirmed.
