Queen Elizabeth II Death Hoax: People Freak After #RIPQueenElizabeth Starts Trending On Twitter

A shocking death hoax about Queen Elizabeth II on Twitter led to a concerning hashtag on Jan. 5 and it caused many users to freak out about the royal’s well-being.

Eek. It looks like Queen Elizabeth II, 92, of London, is the latest celebrity to be the victim of a disturbing death hoax and it left fans in a chaotic frenzy. After the shocking hashtag, #RIPQueenElizabeth started trending on Twitter on Jan. 5, users couldn’t help but tweet out words of concern and questions about the royal’s well being. Fortunately, it seems like the Queen is still in good health but the joke quickly got out of hand when many really believed she had passed.

The hashtag that caused others to wonder whether or not the Queen was still alive, was started because back in Dec. a Reddit user with the handle beefy_cabbage playfully predicted that she would pass away on Jan. 5. Although the account and prediction, which received 50,000 upvotes and 7,000 comments, according to Sputnik, was deleted shortly after it went public, users couldn’t help but share the hashtag in case it came true. Since the original Reddit prediction post had no context, some even believed they had inside information about the Queen’s future demise.

“Queen Elizabeth was a great queen of England, through good times and bad, and with her passing comes a time of mourning for the whole world. #ripqueenelizabeth,” one user posted, without indicating whether or not he was joking. Others passed around what appeared to be pics of a fake CNN and BBC headlines about the Queen’s alleged death.
