Okay this has really gotten out of hand, could it be that some people have too much time on their hands? The internet has been going wild with this hoax, kanye west supposedly died in a bizarre car crash in Los Angeles involving two luxury cars early this morning leaving rapper Kanye West dead, a second injured, a third arrested for gross vehicular manslaughter! Not true.

According to MTV,

"At press time, it was unknown where the rumor started, but some were pointing to the image board 4chan.org as the origin of the phony report that West had died in a crash involving two custom cars in Los Angeles. It quickly blossomed into e-mail chains and comment threads on Facebook and Twitter.

Computer security blog Sophos.com tracked the origins of the scam, tying it to hackers who used the rumor to push the false reports to the top of Internet search engine results. By Wednesday morning (October 21)."

Please for the love of life, people should stop starting stupid rumors, it is not funny at all! It is downright hurtful. Kanye is alive and well.
