President Obama Declared Dead By Fox News’ Twitter

By / 07.04.11

Frequent Twitter enough and you’ll see at least one celebrity death become a trending topic once weekly. For July 4th, Fox News’ Twitter account generates the rumored death of a prominent figure: our nation’s President. While most Americans slept, a hacker under the title of @TheScriptKiddie somehow logged into the verified @FoxNewsPolitics and posted messages stating President Obama was “shot twice…in Iowa.”

Hacked or perhaps drunk tweeting at the time, it looks as if the tweets are still visible at the time of this post and the Fox folks haven’t had the decency to delete the messages yet.

You stay classy, Fox.
